Great piece into the MS environment
Comments: 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 - Improving Forecasting
Comments: We no longer need to worry about the size of the excel forecasting file or which version of the template users are on or version of excel. Kepion has enabled more frequent re-forecasts to be performed.
Pros: With the ability to integrate with our core financial systems forecasting became a whole lot easier, no more large complex spreadsheets with lots of hidden hard coded numbers. Forecasting is all now standardised across all entities improving the reliability of the outputs. The standardisation has also highlighted other data quality issues, and as they are resolved data across all our systems has improved. End users are able to make better informed decisions based on accurate data quickly.
Cons: Some of the rendering of reports inside the application were not possible, or caused deterioration of the application speed. We still use excel to pull data from Kepion to allow more detailed analysis and data insights.
