"With Tidemark, we are finding that we can start the entire budgeting process a lot later and it will be more understandable to the end executive user. Before, we were mass consolidating spreadsheets, whereas Tidemark consolidates all that for you."

“For those of us who have been around this kind of software for years, Tidemark’s breakthroughs are breathtaking.”
— Ben Horowitz, Founding Partner of Andreessen Horowitz
“Leveraging Tidemark’s planning and forecasting tool and Workday’s financial systems technology (both in the cloud), these management-specific metrics are pushed to FP&A for analysis. It’s where this data comes from that is atypical—the field force using the vendors’ apps on their mobile devices.”
“Tidemark’s computational cloud can handle the data influx so customers get a more accurate and timely forecasts. Customers can note if the forecasts meet or exceed finance and budget parameters, providing the machine learning algorithm with immediate feedback.”
“The user just needs to ask a question, like “Why did last month’s sales drop?” and it answers with charts and graphs, based on real-time data. It’s almost like Google and Wolfram | Alpha combined, with customized algorithms.”
“It’s taking big data and analytics and applying it to financial planning, so that when finance sends a plan to operations, it has real details they can use to implement the plan instead of a pie-in-the-sky forecast. The new tools are built on top of Apache Spark, which provides quick access to data and can take advantage machine learning techniques to help users get at the answers they need using natural language queries.”
“This series of pictures tells the story of a company's profitability through commonly understood shapes and graphs. Numbers about employees, for instance, are represented by human figures. Numbers about products break down into shopping bags—the bigger the bag, the more profitable the product.”
“Tidemark configures a company’s data by tapping into it at the source and packaging it in an incredibly intuitive iPad-based app.”
“Yet what really makes Tidemark different is not its features, but its overall vision. It’s designed to be user-friendly, with a highly intuitive, visual interface. It also allows you to easily integrate external data sources through API’s and includes predictive analytics so that you can model the impact of various scenarios your company may face in real time.”
“Areas like profitability of regions and products, or the effects on costs of changing headcount, are displayed graphically, in what feels like a consumer Web site on which you can redesign images with your browser.”
