What makes it Innovative? Adaptive Planning 6.5 represents a major milestone by incorporating new innovations and high-end features into an easy-to-use and affordable package. It is now simple for business users without IT skills to create and use sophisticated multi-dimensional financial planning models and to establish seamless integration with NetSuite. These new capabilities give companies access to comprehensive customized real-time information that supports more accurate planning better management reporting and analysis and more agile decision making.

The new Cube Sheet feature allows business users to easily create and use financial models with up to ten dimensions simplifying the planning of large volumes of data. For example sales executives and product managers often need to plan and re-forecast revenues by making volume and price assumptions for multiple geographies product lines customers product SKUs time periods and other dimensions - a planning exercise that requires the input and ongoing review of millions of discrete data elements.The new capability sets Adaptive Planning apart from both spreadsheets which are inherently limited in supporting multi-dimensional inputs and cube-based enterprise software applications which are extremely complex requiring personnel with deep IT skills to modify and maintain models over time. Adaptive Planning dramatically simplifies matters with an intuitive "drag and drop" interface and "business language" formula builder that allow business users without IT training to create maintain and use sophisticated multi-dimensional models.The new Cube Sheet feature extends the range of data input features available within Adaptive Planning adding to the solution's time-based Standard Sheet and list-oriented Modeled Sheet. This integrated approach ensures that companies can customize their models for their specific needs using the right tool for each organization and element of the model rather than mandating a particular approach
