"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"

Comments: 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.

"State of the art CPM solution"

Comments: Kepion offers a refreshing, modern CPM experience with a perfect integration with the Microsoft world including SQL databases, Excel, Word, Azure, etc.
Users will like this solution as the usage of the tool is very easy and well documented.
In addition, Kepion offers the full CPM functionality, what is very helpful, if you want to limit the number of software within your company and reduce the number of interfaces and user interfaces.

Pros: Kepion is very easy to understand and use for users. Internal know-how for Kepion is in most companies already existing inhouse due to its MS platform. Not limited to specific departmental solutions and Kepion offers starter apps for a quick implementation.
Kepion offers a complete CPM product including Planning, BI, Analysis and Legal Consolidation. Perfect for customers who are looking for an all in one solution.

Cons: More complex requirements require support from technical staff.

"Great planning and budgeting capabilities, lacks reports"

Pros: Super flexbile tool, that allows you to develop business rules without knowing any programming language. I didn't find anything that wansn't possible, with less or more effort, with Kepion.

Cons: The reporting side of the tool is definitely it's weakest point. Also, the deployment functionality is not the best.
