Anaplan Vs Adaptive Insights


Anaplan's modern platform provides large-scale collaborative planning and decision-making across every area of your business. The platform was built in the cloud to address increasing data volume and variety, including data from unstructured and online sources. It leverages standards-based data integration that can bring in data from any source. To meet real-time modeling and calculation demands, Anaplan combines the benefits of cube, columnar, and cell-based frameworks with an in-memory modeling environment and a multi-threaded calculation engine.

Anaplan has data visualization capabilities, flexible encryption for enhanced security, application lifecycle management (ALM) to ensure real-world success and tools to help organizations understand how changes to data sources and planning models interact and impact each other.

Anaplan features include:

  • Business Performance Optimization
  • Dashboarding
  • Data mining
  • Capital Asset Planning
  • Graphical Data Presentation
  • Multi-Department/Project
  • Production budget
  • Project Budgeting
  • Sales

Adaptive Insights

Adaptive Insights is a web-based corporate performance management software for budgeting, reporting, and forecasting for any size business. Adaptive is also deployed on a cloud platform. Adaptive Insights is a tool that has a lot to offer, but it's important to make sure you're choosing the right software for your company and its unique needs.

When it comes to modeling Adaptive Insights falls short of Anaplan, which allows you to add different scenarios into the application and see how they will likely affect your company and your future plans. This is important if you are in an industry that is very reactive to environmental changes (whether political, financial, or the actual environment) where you need to model potential changes to identify how best to safeguard your business and take advantage of future opportunities.

Adaptive Insights also falls short in forward planning. Forward planning is related to modeling, but there are subtle differences. Modeling allows you to see what will happen if there are changes in the business environment, while forward planning helps you identify what to do about it and how your reactions to the change is likely to affect your business.
