Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The biggest feature is the source of truth for all of our budget and forecast versions.""Automated reporting.""The important feature is integration with source data. It connects to various ERP systems, including Workday, Intact, and others. It can also import actuals and compare them to PlanPoint quite easily.""Changes to corporate structure, account codes are updated in all versions including prior years, hence "one-version of truth" as claimed.""Reports are allowed to be edited for aesthetic purposes, which is lacking in a lot of other dashboard tools.""It helps develop a more unified work format throughout the company.""It's very stable.""Forecasting changes that instantly flow through all financial statements."

More Adaptive Insights Pros →

"The tool is stable.""It is a very user-friendly software.""Stability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten.""Financial consolidation and reporting tool with good built-in features such as currency exchange and elimination.""You can bring in data from any source and from multiple sources, and you can consolidate that data in HFM.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility and ease of configuration in terms of testing and formula creation.""The most valuable features are around consolidations, eliminations, conversions."

More Oracle HFM Pros →

"It's a Workday product; they could do a little bit better to integrate a pure-play integration with Workday, which really doesn't do that.""The product's configuration process could be faster.""Being able to drill down when using OfficeConnect needs work.""Their customer support team is slow to respond and not extremely confident.""We tried Discovery and OfficeConnect at one point and found them too cumbersome, at the time.""Adaptive Insights has a limit of 1,00,000 rows for HTML reports. It should be improved because we will have multiple dimensions that need to be populated to enhance the image.""The integrations could be simpler. It takes quite a bit of internal and IT know-how to set up.""Discovery (the data visualization module): Needs to catch up with BI leaders, such as MS and Tableau. E.g., sorting by amounts in column charts and page slicers to control all visuals."

More Adaptive Insights Cons →

"Integration is an area where it lacks and can be improved.""If there could be data integration between HFM and the accounting software that would be ideal.""The complexity is okay. I don't see it as super complex. The solution could have more functionality to make it a little bit more flexible.""It's a difficult process to try to edit, configure, or change the business rules that exist and work within HFM.""The solution has integration challenges. We need a simple tool that is fool-proof for the data that is submitted not only for consolidation purposes but also for performance management and reporting purposes.""In terms of improvement, one challenge with Oracle HFM is the need for technical knowledge in writing SQL syntax for custom extensions.""The intercompany reporting function in this tool needs improvement, particularly being able to run reports in batches, rather than one at a time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Everything is negotiable, but this solution is low cost compared to others."
  • "Licensing seems to be worth the cost considering the efficiency Adaptive brings."
  • "Prior to purchasing licenses, make sure you understand which users will only need planning and which users will need both planning and OfficeConnect."
  • "Ensure that you have the proper pricing plan in place."
  • "Adaptive Insights' pricing is reasonable."
  • "Pricing is in line with other cloud-based EPM tools. It is a subscription-based model based upon the number of users and site type if it's an admin or end-user type thing."
  • "Adaptive Insights' pricing is relative to its peer competitors. It's certainly competitive compared to a spreadsheet template that you build in Excel. It can be expensive if you need to have 100-500 budget holders giving input and building financial plans. However, in that case, it becomes an extremely good bargain. Compared to its competitors, it offers an excellent value."
  • "It's affordable."

  • "Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) uses the named user licensing model. There's different pricing depending on HFM and Essbase planning."
