Businesses of all sizes – and across all industries – must operate more quickly and with more agility than ever before. To achieve this, more than 4,350 organisations have selected Adaptive Insights for a continuous, comprehensive, and collaborative approach to business planning, empowering them to make more informed decisions in less time.
Workday acquired Adaptive Insights in 2018 to complement its products including Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management, and to enable customers to plan, execute, and analyse across the enterprise all in one system powered by machine learning. With this vision, and to better serve joint customers, Adaptive Insights is unifying with the Workday suite of applications as part of the Power of One – one source for data, one security model, one user experience, and one Workday community.
Additionally, in the last year, Adaptive Insights has expanded its operational planning capabilities to include workforce planning, enhanced its Elastic Hypercube Technology for large and complex business models, and has invested in adding breakthrough anomaly detection capabilities which will enable customers to catch potential errors in budgets, forecasts, scenarios, and other models. These milestones equally benefit Workday and non-Workday customers as Adaptive Insights continues to tighten integrations with third-party platforms to remain the best-in-class business planning solution for any organisation whether they use Workday or not.
