Axiom is extremely well suited to optimize the Budget process. Using Axiom, we have cut our overall budget cycle time in half and have a much higher level of accuracy in all facets of the Budget including Fee Income, Expense, and Margin. Axiom is also well suited for advanced data users as you have the ability to create your own custom database tables which allows you to join to the existing Axiom tables and has allowed us to create custom reporting that we could not even think about on our previous system. The other big benefit of Axiom is that it sits on top of Microsoft Excel and inherits all of its functionality, which most people have experience with.

SAP

I highly recommend SAP Analytics Cloud if your team is considering purchasing an analytics tool. Real-time data updates are essential for any reporting, and SAC is an expert in this league. Anytime is better than other analytics players, and it's good for small or large both firms.

Pros

Syntellis Performance Solutions (formerly Kaufman Hall Software)

  • 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.

SAP

  • Maximizing the usage of screen real estate.
  • Better performance with multiple widgets.
  • Ability to handle larger volume.
  • Ability to paginate charts and tables showing only top entries.
  • Ability to connect stores to different data models and ability to change the source for a data model. Without this, every time the dashboard needs to be rebuilt when the backend view needs to be changed.

    SAP Analytics Cloud is user-friendly overall, but it definitely requires training on how to navigate all of the menus and how to create charts. It can be hard to remember which features are in the builder sidebar vs which features are accessed via the chart's widget itself. After using SAP Analytics Cloud regularly I have become more familiar with this but I do still wish it was consolidated into one place.

    Support Rating

    Syntellis Performance Solutions (formerly Kaufman Hall Software)

    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

    Since the implementation stage, the support team has been very helpful and assisting. Even in the later stages, the tech team had quite a rapid response. In general, SAP has provided us with great customer support, let it be for a specific product of SAP or for integration of different modules.

    SAC is a simple solution ad it works fine when connecting it to other SAP tools. On the other hand, connecting it to third party solutions brings difficulties when there's no previous design and the objetives are not clear. It is really important to integrate Business users from the start to provide with valuable business insights
