Adaptive Insights International Roadshow Brings Best Practices and Integrated Data Analytics to More Than 2,000 Finance Professionals Worldwide

Finance Leaders Across Four Countries Attend Popular Keynote Sessions, Get a Live Look at Adaptive's Latest Product Release During Day-Long Regional Events

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2014) - Adaptive Insights, the worldwide leader in cloud business analytics for the biggest brands and the hottest companies, is welcoming a record number of attendees at each of its local financial leadership events during its month-long, international Adaptive roadshow.

More than 1,000 business finance leaders, including current customers and partners, have already attended Adaptive's roadshow events throughout the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand, with hundreds more registered to attend upcoming roadshow stops in New York, Toronto, and London. The 2014 roadshow is the broadest and most well-attended event series in the company's history, with more than 2,000 registrants -- a growth rate of more than 300 percent over the company's 2013 roadshow series.

Roadshow participants are getting a first look at the many new features within the 2014.2 version of the Adaptive Suite, as well as the company's new Adaptive OfficeConnect product, both of which the company announced last week

Version 2014.2 of the Adaptive Suite introduces a new, fully-integrated platform that simplifies data analytics integration with existing technology investments. The result is end-to-end cloud business analytics for finance and IT organizations alike, all within a single, cloud-based platform.

Adaptive OfficeConnect continues the integration theme, enabling customers to seamlessly weave financial data in Adaptive into Excel, Word, and PowerPoint documents, as well as quickly convert existing Excel financial reports into OfficeConnect reports. Individual interactions with Adaptive solution specialists at each Adaptive Roadshow Event allow for in-depth, live knowledge sharing and best practices demonstrations.

"Our new product release is a real game-changer for finance organizations, and we're thrilled to have finance professionals around the world come out in record numbers to get a live look at our latest features and share industry insight," said Rob Hull, Founder and Chairman of Adaptive Insights. "We are also pleased to be assembling senior level Adaptive CFO Council members in select roadshow cities to share strategies and conduct networking activities." 

Adaptive Roadshow attendees also have access to dynamic keynote presentations that explore the future of FP&A, and actionable strategies to accelerate growth and make better business decisions. Specifically, the sessions are focused on new approaches for improving collaboration in budgeting and planning, optimizing financial & management reporting, streamlining revenue planning & analytics, and advancing personnel planning. Former PeopleSoft CFO Ron Codd led one such session, entitled "Taking the Lead in Finance Transformation," at events in San Francisco and Dallas. 

"Every part of the Adaptive Roadshow was rewarding -- from the keynote and general sessions that were full of rich and helpful content, to the interactive Adaptive CFO Council breakfast roundtable," said Donald Sherwood, Senior Director of FP&A for Rimini Street. "I brought my whole team, and we all took away a lot of valuable insights in terms of how to lead business decisions with financial data. It was an overall great day with Adaptive."
