Axiom Software (formerly 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.

It is well suited when you have several sources of data.

Pros

Axiom Software (formerly 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.

  • Easy to use
  • Focus on analyzing and not on finding and loading data
  • "One version of the truth"

Cons

Axiom Software (formerly 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.

  • I would like to have more modules. Eg. : supply chain tool.

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

Alternatives Considered

Axiom Software (formerly 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

Cognos is very expensive and needs heavy IT-team to implement it.

Return on Investment

Axiom Software (formerly 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.

Additional Pricing Details
The On-Premise or SaaS solutions are the same price; we provide a dedicated machine or virtual machine for both. For 10 users, the budget is from $15,000 to $90,000 for a full Business Intelligence solution (including licenses and maintenance for 3 years). The installation and configuration cost depends on customer's data architecture, volume and number of sources. It also depends on customizations required (i.e.: exporting pixel to pixel PDF files to a SharePoint platform).
