9 Spokes

Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Jedox

Jedox is really good when being applied to a specific use case or scenario (such as a budget or planning process). Once embedded, users then start to really understand how it can be used in other, less well defined, areas of their business.It is therefore not as easy to apply it on an enterprise-wide deployment from a "Big Bang" perspective. But very few tools / projects ever meet this goal.

Pros

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.
  • Setting up the apps is a breeze when the platform supports them.

  • Self Service BI. With its familiar front end - both the Excel add-in and its web based spreadsheet portal - it is easy for new users to be up and running very quickly, writing reports and answering questions of their data.
  • Budgeting and Planning. At the core to Jedox is its In-Memory OLAP database that can be written to. The Excel like front end is then able to write back to this central database to take advantage of the ease of use of a spreadsheet system, but combine the power of a central database application.
  • Modelling. Jedox has very powerful but easy to use tools to model any business requirement, from simple KPI calculations, through inter- and intra- business unit cost allocations to complex Activity Based Costing and Budgeting.
  • Data Integration. Jedox has a a powerful and easy to use ETL for both reading from and writing to databases, ERP's, Salesforce and Qlikview applications, for example.

Cons

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • Jedox has made an important step toward corporate disclosure management functionality but this could be improved/ extended.
  • In terms of visualization Jedox is up there with most well-known BI vendors. However, Jedox lacks the visualization data discovery features that some of these tools offer. Having said that, an analyst will not regard it as a showstopper.

To me Jedox deserves 10/10 because it is a consistent one-in-all platform with a modern look and feel. It is intuitive to use and allows you to make intuitive applications integrating traditional business intelligence with performance management functionality. It certainly has a short
learning curve, especially for those that are familiar with MS Excel. An example: I've lost count but Jedox it is available in more than 25 languages. Another: Jedox does not require programming skills... it is developed to be used by the business.

Jedox has
very few bugs. Reports are available through an Excel add-in, the web and/or
mobile device (IOS/Android). In my opinion, availability also means high
performance, not having to wait for the system to give you the required reports,
analysis, dashboards instantly.

Jedox is the fastest OLAP tool on the market. It can use GPU cards to increase performance even more

Support

Based on 1 answer
Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

The Jedox support team are highly knowledgeable about both the product and how it is used in real life. They also are typically proactive in resolving issues.

Jedox goed beyond traditional BI. That means that it is more important to pick an implementation partner that understands your business. A partner that can anticipate your next requirements. Using the performance management functionality of Jedox, integrating BI with forecasting, workflow, planning takes the solution closer to key (decision) making processes. People do not only use Jedox for insight, reporting, dashboards and analytics but to share expectations and comments to better drive the business. This kind of rich functionality requires a very good functional design before you implement it. That is, if you want to benefit fully what it has to offer. Technically implementing Jedox is relatively easy. In fact, according thousands of business users that participate in the yearly Business Application Research Centre (BARC) Survey, it is the best do-it-yourself BI/performance management system on the market

Jedox can and is applied for a whole range of applications throughout the company or organization. Typically the number of users rises as the applications grow in size/ functionality and number

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

We normally compete with Cognos TM1, Hyperion and SAP BPC. Functionalities, price and implementation time have no comparison. Jedox is a large the leader in these areas.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

Scalability

Scalability is often another word for speed. Given enough data, enough users or enough calculations, the tool becomes slower and slower. You will find that Jedox has a very high performance that can even be increased by the use of grafical cards. Other thaen that it does not only offer BI (looking back based on historical ERP data) but also allows you to look forward through integrated budgetting, planning, forecasting, workflow and collaboration. Not easy to find a tool that can support so much business functionality. So, also pretty scalable in that respect.
