Axiom EPM

Axiom is ideal for organizations with multiple departments that need to collect, share, and integrate data from common internal data sources. The product is best for very large organizations with a lot of financial backing. I wouldn't suggest using Axiom if you're a small organization or only one department, for example.

Salesforce Einstein Analytics

[Salesforce Einstein Analytics (formerly Wave Analytics)] is very suitable to see revenue vs targets. Which representative [is below] some targets [and] what is the current status of that particular rep. Security can be applied such that reps and their Managers can easily see the information.It can also be used to see what it is status of particular opportunity. It is in which stage. How many opportunities are won in one particular fiscal year or any other time.We can gather information of contacts and their associated accounts.It is very difficult to have business hour calculations, so it is good to have calculation in salesforce org and then use that information is Einstein. Till now real time data is not supported, so it is not suitable for OLAP.

Pros

Axiom EPM

  • Compared to a previous EPM we used, Axiom's template load and saving performance has been much better even for large plan files.
  • Axiom consultants can create completely customized reports for any of the collected data. Super users within your organization can then fairly easily modify their work to create additional reports without Axiom's help (and invoices)
  • Setting up user security is a fairly easy one-time task and very easy to maintain when people change departments, leave the organization, etc. I would recommend you use role-based security settings.
  • Compared to our previous EPM, Axiom allows more customization and possibilities for templates. There's very few "the product can't do that" statements.

Salesforce Einstein Analytics

  • It has dashboards that, out of the box, can be useful for people who do not want to put in much effort in creating custom dashboards. It also has the ability to customize dashboards so you can add more info and functionality to your dashboards if the need arises.
  • The developers are continually investing in the platform and providing improvements, and listen to customer feedback and feature requests. They regularly update the app and provide more functionality which has been beneficial to our institution.
  • Native integration and natural connection if your organization is already using Salesforce. Super easy to set up and works well with Salesforce. Very smooth and natural when connecting it to your Salesforce instance.
  • Excellent visual experience for presenting data. Users find it so much easier to navigate and view data in a visual way, which allows them to drive their performance in the right directions.
  • Has the ability to pull data not only from Salesforce but from other external systems and databases, making it an all-around BI tool. Mixing data from Salesforce and other third-party systems puts all your data in one place which can easily be ingested by decision-makers and executives.

Cons

Axiom EPM

  • Unfortunately, Axiom only assigned two implementation consultants to our massive project and both were completely new to the product and inexperienced.
  • This isn't really a fault of Axiom, but your organization's data has to be perfect before implementing Axiom. You need a strong project manager within your organization to take the lead in working with Axiom. They should be very familiar with the source data and what's important to all your internal stakeholders. The Axiom team needs to be clearly told exactly what you need from them.
  • We never truly felt confident anyone from Axiom was really familiar with the source tables and data being used. I would suggest in any project they make that a priority early on. Not being familiar with the data caused a list of issues regarding reporting and template construction.

  • When we started with SAC we did not realize for it to be effective it would require a FTE to be the administrator.
  • You need an energetic, self-starting person to be the administrator to get the most value out of your investment.
  • You need ELT buy-in to make all parties accountable for their assigned duties.

[Salesforce Einstein Analytics (formerly Wave Analytics)] is very user friendly. Almost everything can be done from configuration level. It is useful to solve real business problems in health care industry, research and development, Education etc. As data loading and transformation is easy it is used regularly. Information can be obtained in a very [easy] way from the dashboards.

For the scale of our implementation, Axiom only assigned two consultants who were both completely new to the company. It felt like we were all learning about the product together, when you would expect them to already be experts at their own product. The team also made a good bit of mistakes throughout production and go-live, which then caused more work internally for us. The team lead for our project also just left the company, so we'll see how next year's planning goes

If there is any problem or any enhancement we need, we can contact the support team for help. They are available at all [times] and help us resolve almost all the requirements. If we need any help for some particular scenario there is lot of online help and documents available both from the company as well as from the personal blogs.

An implementation partner would certainly result in greater output in a more efficient amount of time. However, I have found implementation partners to be extremely expensive for the output received (at least working for a non-profit company they are frequently unaffordable). Internal implementation does help with usable output though since internal knowledge would better know the data architecture and business processes

Alternatives Considered

Axiom EPM

Vena was a strong product, but only our department within the University used it for budgeting. The entire university chose Axiom for the increased scale and capacity. The loading and saving performance of Axiom is slightly better than Vena. Also, Axiom provides more template and report customization. Vena definitely excelled more in their support and staffing and was much cheaper (so I'm told) than Axiom

Tableau is the absolute top of the class when it comes to business intelligence, but it doesn't make sense for every business case. In our case, we needed a simple data visualization platform for our CRM platform and sales pipeline. Salesforce Analytics, while nowhere near as robust, did the job we needed it to do perfectly in a significantly more cost-effective manner.

Return on Investment

Axiom EPM

  • This is only the first year of implementation for the university, so the ROI is yet to be fully seen. For our department, which is the largest in the university, I think the ROI has been fairly high as our users have had more built-in resources within their plan files than they had previously.
