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

Reporting is definitely a strong suit with Sage Intacct. We can easily create reports that are not already created for us, and we can easily manipulate those reports to give us the exact data we need in any situation. We can also create recurring reports that we pull on a monthly/quarterly basis for financial closes and investor reporting

Pros

  • Installing packages is very easy with Anaconda. Anaconda comes with 'anaconda navigator', a terminal-like utility from which you can easily install R packages and python libraries.
  • Launching R and python IDEs as well as Jupyter notebooks from anaconda navigator is simple, and Anaconda makes it very easy to keep these packages up-to-date.
  • I really like the fact that if you don't want to install the full version of Anaconda, you can opt to install a lightweight version (called Miniconda) that includes less python libraries and only core conda. I've installed it when I didn't want to take up as much disk space as Anaconda requires, but it works just the same.

  • Sage Intacct tremendously simplifies our chart of accounts by allowing us to use multiple dimensions to accurately track and report on expenses and sales. We now have a universal set of simple GL accounts, consistent across all entities and departments.
  • Sage Intacct allows us to extract and report upon detailed financial information very quickly. We are able to support operations more effectively by significantly reducing the amount of time required to get answers around financial information.
  • Sage Intacct eliminates IT-related issues and delays. Software updates are reliably scheduled and rolled out to the entire Intacct user base simultaneously. We spend zero time or money maintaining servers, applying updates, etc...

Cons

  • Some Python packages are not included to Anaconda, so you have to install them using different ways, like using pip, for example.
  • Sometimes you get stuck because Anaconda still have some little bugs.
  • Anaconda is a little slow when it's initializing.

  • I would like to see published pricing for add-on modules without having to engage an account executive. This would allow us to determine if a particular module we are considering is priced in a way that makes sense for the value we hope to gain from deployment very quickly.
  • Sage Intacct has tons of flexibility supporting customizations like smart rules. An object-oriented, visual smart rule builder would be a great enhancement.

We will continue to use Intacct internally and refer it to our clients that will mesh with their industries because it is a proven solution that works. It keeps employees efficient and uses their time to construct accurate financials with the correct level of controls.

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.

The training is designed for implementing intacct as opposed to utilizing intacct. I think that both are necessary to learn, but wish there was continued training for using it once Intacct is in place for the users.

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda is the best Python environment because you have all the things you need all in one places, at the reach of your hand. You can download and manage libraries as you wish and is very easy to create new projects and API's for all your stuff.It's Multiplatform so you don't have to take care to use your stuff in another computer. I think it is the best characteristic.

I selected Sage Intacct when it was just Intacct (before merger with Sage). I compared it against Financial Edge from Blackbaud. Financial Edge appeared to be more complicated based on user interface and it was also more costly.

The learning curve takes a little time, however, the workflow across managing all our clients is very beneficial.

Return on Investment

  • We save a lot of programming time, since all the add-ons are in the same environment.
  • Being multiplatform, Anaconda is perfect for work teams with many people, since it supports all operating systems.
  • The only negative thing that can happen is that at first, the way of working in Anaconda can be a bit confusing. Once passed the learning period, its daily use is very comfortable.

  • Great impact on managing organizational expenses as a result of allowing departmental managers monitor their budgets and goals.
  • Helped greatly with audit at year end as a result of electronic support attached within Sage Intacct.
