Anaconda

Anaconda is great for academic and private organizations that cannot afford more expensive Python/R package managers. Also, it is more appropriate for intermediate to advanced Python users--Anaconda can be somewhat frustrating for beginners, as it takes some practice to get comfortable with the workflow. I find it particularly useful for working in teams, because if everyone uses the same package manager, it is easier to troubleshoot issues and makes for reproducible research. For wealthier organizations, a premium package management system (with tech support) would be ideal. Anaconda is also great for people working independently on code development.

Sage Intacct

Sage Intacct is well suited for any growing company, with a lot of transaction and detail volume. The importing functions of the software are great and they reduce the time needed and increase efficiency within my team.Sage Intacct is not necessarily suited for a company that does not have the volume to justify such a detailed or customized reporting function.

Pros

Anaconda

  • Clear install story. There are a lot of ways to install python. There's only one way to install anaconda. This makes teaching and standardizing much easier.
  • Batteries included. It's easy to install things in python, but anaconda ships with most of what you need out of the box. This helps with standardization and reproducibility.
  • Good integrations with Jupyter and other visual tools. Jupyter is really convenient when learning various python packages. Anaconda makes these tools easy to launch and to use.

  • The reporting is powerful. The ability to create dimension groups (account and department specifically) are, in my mind, understated by the Company. I am able to create different versions of balance sheets and income statements fairly easily that run at the push of a button.
  • Push-button consolidation. Consolidation is quick and easy.
  • AR and AP revaluation reports. These reports calculate the unrealized FX gain / loss on AR and AP at the push of a button. You can choose from the Intacct daily rates or input your own rates.
  • Custom fields are easy to create and can be included in custom reports making reporting even more powerful!

Cons

Anaconda

  • Although some other users mentioned the installation is "simple", we did encounter some challenge in a highly controlled environment (due to security reasons).
  • Jupyter Notebook is extremely slow when the client/server side of the network's speed/bandwidth is not balanced.
  • Bootstrapping Anaconda takes too long, sometimes I even started doubting it would respond any more.
  • If there are extra python packages you need but are not by default installed by Anaconda, then some efforts will be required to figure out how to put them in the right place.

  • The reporting is overly complicated and hard to use. The UI is terrible. Had we known about this prior to purchasing, we would have chosen a competitor instead.
  • The projects module needs a better resource and project management tool. Again, the UI is not user-friendly, and the reporting is extremely difficult to utilize. A lot of work towards improvement needs to be put into the Projects Module.
  • It would be very useful to enable more flexibility in making changes to posted transactions that are not in a closed period. It's frustrating having to reverse a series of transactions just to make a minor $0.01 change in the original transaction. Or if a transaction was posted to the wrong account, it would be nice to be able to change the account posting, instead of having to reverse and recreate the transaction. I would also like to be able to post an item to different accounts, depending on the circumstances.

It's really good at data processing, but needs to grow more in publishing in a way that a non-programmer can interact with. It also introduces confusion for programmers that are familiar with normal Python processes which are slightly different in Anaconda such as virtualenvs.

This system is always improving. They're never satisfied with the current product. Their customer service is also unmatched. Our account manager is always checking in to see how we're utilizing Sage Intacct and if our business needs are being met

It's really good at installing and getting started. It's less usable and configurable after that. If you stay in the ecosystem, and don't know how to Python any other way - it works really well.

It takes some time to get adjusted with the system and know your way around. Overall, this is a great system that allows multiple systems to adequately integrate in order to automate a lot of information that comes from external sources.

There are times when the system is down when multiple people need to log in to track time to be able invoice clients. This at times can be painful, but we work around it when it happens.

currently you must submit a ticket via the customer portal and then wait for a response. The time you must wait for the response varies based on the urgency of your request. Sometimes you just need a quick response and a phone call would be easier or even a live chat ~ would love to see them roll that out instead of having to wait when you have a question or issue.

It was great for generic training but we had the system modified by our third party implementer and a lot of that was not covered in various training's that we received or took online. Attended Advantage last year and that as super helpful in learning a lot of the intricacies of the system.

I would not use a thrid party administrator to implement your system, especially if you are going to be modifying the system at all. Use Intacct implementors as they will be able to better support you on any issues that come up after you go live.

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda

ANACONDA VS Alteryx Analytics: Even though I find Alteryx to be an excellent tool for managing extremely massive data, Anaconda is much better and easy for analytics.Anaconda VS. MicroStrategy Analytics: Compared with Anaconda, MicroStrategy Analytics is very difficult to use and counter-intuitiveAnaconda VS. Power BI For Office 365: One of the main advantages of BI for Office 364 is its capacity to data connectivity. However, it's very hard to edit data connections, once BI for Office is deployed in other platforms

I came onboard and QuickBooks was currently implemented but had not been set up properly. I dislike how I couldn't control all report functions within QB and immediately started looking for a new solution. While Intacct provides the users with many standard reports, I was able to change everything I wanted to better match the specific needs of my company. This was imperative in my decision to find new accounting software. Additionally I needed the ability to tightly control what users could post in the system and Intacct allows me full control over what gets processed

Return on Investment

Anaconda

  • We can get any new employee set-up on Python for Machine learning in minutes, without any assistance from IT. That's real $ savings.
  • We started to experiment with Machine Learning a lot more, which leads to creating new projects which can have a tremendous impact on the business.

  • We have been able to perform a 10-day close using Intacct, which generates a positive ROI for my team
  • Our reporting and access to transaction level details is also a positive ROI
  • I have not freed up time for my AP accountant as the AP and PO approval workflows are cumbersome, negative ROI here
