Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Insights
Engine Yard utilizes Adaptive Insights as the forecast / budgeting tool as well as the operational reporting tool across the entire organization. We have effectively used the application as our main source for not only financial data, but also for operational statistics and KPI's. Through interactive dashboards and reports, users can drill down to key information and make informed decisions that help drive the business.
- Reporting with drill down capabilities
- Data visualization
- Refined ability to selectively filter out dimensions in large data sets
- Continued improvement on existing visualization options
- Faster budgeting cycle
- One source for data has reduced costs and improved operational efficiencies
- Allows the company to remain proactive as opposed to reactive to business situations
With Hyperion, there was always additional time associated with IT involvement, whether it was to add to the organizational structure, currency rate calculations etc. In Adaptive Insights there is no need for IT intervention - AI is truly real-time information when you need it. AI is a no-brainer!
Do the ground work - clearly identify your organizational structure / chart of accounts / etc., but keep in mind that AI is extremely flexible in how you can implement it - it is really up to the users! Once you have a successful implementation, be objective and review to constantly improve and refine your model.
