Designed for You

Everyone plans. So a successful planning solution has to be easy enough for everyone to use. Creating products that people really can and will use has always been our priority. Whether you are building models or consuming data, our products are owned and managed by business users. Our ease of use results in rapid time to value with a relatively small professional services requirement. With Workday Adaptive Planning, companies of all sizes and industries can plan smarter, report faster, and analyse better – transforming business performance in ways never before imagined.

Innovative Technology

Adaptive Insights' software as a service (SaaS) delivery model presents significant advantages over traditional on-premises corporate performance management software.

  • Faster deployments: Projects average weeks of consulting time, versus months or years for traditional software.
  • Greater ease of use: Our intuitive user interface combines the best of consumer applications with the familiarity of Excel, and is designed for business users of all types. This dramatically reduces training time, speeds adoption, and results in faster time to value.
  • Limited need for IT: No new hardware, software, or IT support is required—just a browser and an internet connection.
  • Automatic upgrades: All users immediately get access to new features, without the need for ongoing IT support.
  • Lower costs: Annual subscriptions, rapid projects, and lack of IT needs keep both upfront and ongoing costs extremely low, and up to 75% lower than the cost of on-premises solutions.

Unprecedented Value

Adaptive Insights solutions provide extraordinary value compared to both spreadsheet-based planning and reporting solutions, and enterprise software alternatives.

While Excel is ubiquitous and seemingly low-cost, Excel-based processes are surprisingly expensive when the costs of personnel time are considered. With Adaptive Planning, part of the Adaptive Suite, a typical midsized company or a large enterprise division can reduce planning times by up to 90%, save tens of thousands of dollars per year, and generate anywhere from 300-600% ROI, while realising payback within six months.

And the Adaptive Suite’s total cost of ownership (TCO) is a fraction of that for enterprise software alternatives. By shortening services projects, eliminating new hardware and software purchases, reducing training costs, and limiting the need for ongoing IT support, Adaptive Insights delivers a TCO that is 75% less than that of on-premises solutions.
