Happy Halloween! This short tale illustrates one company’s escape from Spreadsheet Hell by implementing Adaptive Insights. Special thanks to Kelly Richmond at Healthwise, Incorporated. Great costume by the way!
Do spreadsheets still have a role in finance? In my latest post, I examine where spreadsheets deliver value as well as criteria for when alternatives should be explored. Please take a moment to read and add your thoughts in the comments section.

I’m in London on a whirlwind business trip this week visiting clients, partners and attending the Adaptive Insights Roadshow. Earlier in my career, I worked in London so I have a strong attachment to this city. If you have ever navigated London using the Underground, you know that whenever the train doors open and close, there is an automated announcement to “Mind the Gap”. This iconic message is a fitting metaphor for the information gap that exists in most of the reporting packages that form the core of decision-making.
