I have only worked with Hyperion, but I would be able to explain anyone within Finance how to use the system within a few hours and then they are good to go on their own. Surely there could be a complex setup behind the system but the average user doesnt need to deal with that.

So I think Hyperion is very user friendly. Especially HFM.

Chris,

I think thats a different division than the one I am working for. We use Hyperion Financial Management for reporting and forecasting.

Personally, I think ADAPTIVE PLANNING is far more user-friendly, cost effective, and provides enormous flexibility in developing budgets and the following financial statements and dashboards, comparing Actuals with Budgets. The system is great for having operating managers complete their budgets, yet provide tracking for obtaining higher management approvals and tracking whether the budget has been received by Finance. The system lets you easily develop and rollup budgets by business unit, divisions, locations, departments, and projects for any type or size of company, in addition rolling them up on a consolidated financial basis. And revisions also can be easily made and tracked -- whenever any part of any budget is changed the system automatically updates all the other budget reports and assigns a Rev Number and date. If you ever had to develop similar Excel budget worksheets, this system is a god send -- it easily would have saved me more than 60% of the mantime and costs over a less controllable and flexible Excel based budget. Can't say enough for ADAPTIVE PLANNING.
