Adaptive Insights, a Workday company, is a cloud-based corporate performance management platform. The GitLab FP&A team utilizes Adaptive Inisghts to plan, budget, and forecast GitLab's planning cycles.
One of the most powerful features of Adaptive Insights is versioning. Adminstrators can create, edit, and lock versions of a plan.
Each version of GitLab should specify the fiscal year and label of the plan / forecast. Below is a few examples of the nomenclature used at GitLab
FY21 - 0 + 12 Plan
FY21 - 1 + 11 Forecast
FY 21 - 2 + 10 Forecast
There are currently five different roles within GitLab's Adaptive Insights instance
Within Adpative, the administrator can assign a name, position, user name, home page, time zone, country, role, and level(s) for each user. The adminstrator can also reset the password, if needed, for the User. Users should use Okta to sign into Adaptive Insights but keep their password in One Password when assigned one.
If you need access to Adaptive Insights, please open an access request and assign to the code owner of this page.
