Great piece into the MS environment

This software was the budgeting / forecasting piece that was missing in our Microsoft SQL infrastructure. It has helped our customers tremendously to reduce their planning process from months to days, having the ability to create detailed monthly forecasts in a simple manner.

Pros

You can customize just about anything. It utilizes the Microsoft BI stack well with dimensions, models SQL server tables etc. Easy to adjust the solution to each and every customer needs and requirements. It is easy to read information into the system and out of the system into other tools such as Tableau or PowerBI

Cons

It still has silverlight functionality, which makes the UI for end users a little bit old. The reporting functionalities within the system are not great compared to dedicated reporting tools such as Tableau. Is not the best fit for very small companies with 50 employees or less.

Kepion

I have had a great relationship with the Kepion team, they are very flexible in improving the product and are very focused on client outcomes.

Pros

It is the flexible to changing business structures and requirements. By adopting an agile methodology, we find that customers get a vastly better outcome as we can change structures quickly. The tool is based on Microsoft technologies, therefore a lot of customers can leverage existing infrastructure. Kepion is a complete modelling tool and therefore allows for operational applications to be delivered outside of the finance departments, such as marketing and asset management processes.

Cons

Larger implementations require additional effort to make sure user experience and performance is acceptable. As the structure is based on a dimensional model, you sometimes need to thoroughly consider the user interactions and any likely bottlenecks to ensure you achieve the optimal user experience.

Easy solution for agile methodologies

Pros

It can adapt to new organizational forms and needs with ease. We've found that by switching to an agile approach, we can provide a far better solution for our clients. Many users may have already been familiar with the workflow and design architecture because the software is built to look like how Microsoft software looks.

Cons

The tool's reporting functionality is notably subpar. Not only that, but the functionality of deployment is lacking in integration option that it can integrated with.
