Best suited for financial consolidation and / or as a highly customized and compact EPM / BI solution (up to 100 CCU) with individual workflows, planning and reporting functionalities, with moderate number of users (no restrictions for any industry, all industries are covered well). It also has advanced reporting & data analysis requirements and provides an integration and reporting layer of imported data from different external systems (via ETL). It can help with migrating your legacy Excel-based business models to the Web. It is not well suited for Enterprise BI applications with expecting >500 CCU (users at the same time working with the system) - this may cause serious performance issues, as all data is kept in RAM. Jedox is also less suited for applications with heavy document management requirements (document management is not an out of the box functionality in Jedox and rather requires custom development through custom widgets etc.).

OneStream is best suited for medium to large companies that find themselves doing a wide variety of manual processes during their financial close cycle will get the most benefit.

Read full review Pros Using the Excel add-in means that our team was almost instantly productive, being able to use a familiar interface to present and manipulate data. Allows us to quickly do analysis and comparison of current and historic data. Really good to produce meaningful management reporting that can be adapted responsively to business requirements. Implementing Jedox in our budget cycle dramatically reduced the time and complexity of the process, while making it more transparent. Read full review With OneStream’s Account Reconciliation solution, the finance team can now see an overview of their reconciliations which saved a significant amount of time as compared to navigating through spreadsheets. OneStream allows much detailed transactional level data (with millions of transactions) from integrated source systems to be consolidated right up to the highest level with drill-down capabilities providing a detailed audit trail as well as full transparency across the organizational hierarchy. This was the biggest benefit as to why OneStream was the preferred choice. The native dashboarding capabilities allowed the company to replace their standalone BI tool with dashboards within OneStream. Analytical blend capabilities provided risk management and risk governance capabilities which before this was not possible for the customer. Read full review Cons Diversity. Jedox can be applied to many different use cases from small to large deployments and from budgeting to enterprise class BI solutions. But rarely is one tool able to fulfill all of these requirements in one organisation. This value proposition can be complicated for prospective users. Awareness. Jedox punches above its weight in capability and scalability, but not enough people have heard about it and therefore procurement processes can be drawn out as a result. Read full review Dashboards are very useful to business users, but can be time consuming to build. Best practice documentation, the product is evolving and is relatively new (about 10 years old) so best practices are still be developed and communicated to the OneStream community.

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. Read full review
Overall usability as an end-user is very easy. There are more people in the system getting information now than the prior platform used. People are gathering their information quicker as well. From an administrator standpoint, there are fewer glitches and issues than the prior platform. This is very good.
Read full review Reliability and Availability
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. Read full review Performance
Jedox is the fastest OLAP tool on the market. It can use GPU cards to increase performance even more
Read full review Support Rating
Jedox support in general is a professional and fast responding team. An easy-to-use ticketing system is in place. Bug-related questions are solved fast (responses come usually in a few hours after the question), but some questions / tickets, that are not Jedox-related bugs (for example some advanced questions about Jedox functionality), may be forwarded to Application Management team for further processing and then it may take several days or even weeks to get a response here -> there is room for improvement here.

OneStream support is focused on the infrastructure. Which means mainly when there issues with accessing to the system, they will be able to help. When the question is to much leaning towards functional it really becomes billable. The other issue is that the response time is not optimal. There is a lot of pingpong of messages and the time between the message can sometimes be long. Sometimes this result into a simple ticket to be taking days before it is closed.
Read full review Implementation Rating
The implementation of SSO, SAML Authentication, HTTPS, Server splitting (Frontend / Backend servers) could be more standardized and made more user friendly to set up (e.g. via setup guide). Otherwise the implementation of Jedox is quick and simple when compared to other similar technologies.
Read full review Alternatives Considered
Calumo is similar product to Jedox. I have used it extensively in my previous role. It was a major contender when we evaluated a BI platform for NIDA. Calumo is a great product as well and it was a very close call. Where we found Jedox to be a better fit for NIDA was the ability to prepare dynamic reports with ease without the need to learn MDX which was used extensively by Calumo to make dynamic reports which expand or shrink based on the underlying data. Another major benefit we saw in Jedox was the whole ETL process could be managed within Jedox instead of doing it in SQL server which negates having a dedicated SQL specialist role when the scale expands.

OneStream is a much more powerful solution for us. Both products claim they can "do it all" but the OneStream XF Marketplace allows us limitless possibilities for what we can do - at a fraction of the implementation cost.
Read full review 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.
Read full review Return on Investment Financial budgeting and Forecasting are done in a centralized fashion in Jedox now instead of a decentralized excel based approach. A lot of cost savings and improved reliability Easy to use self-help Dashboards and detailed reports Web-based reporting instead of excel based Read full review Customers have moved from multiple EPM systems as well as multiple EPM applications to OneStream. Their ROI has been quite high as lesser admins are required, no need to move data back & forth, no need for an additional dashboarding / BI tool, once a user is on OneStream can leverage it for more than 50+ use cases at no additional license cost. Automation, direct integration, scheduling, complex calculation capabilities, all help to further improve ROI and free up the time for the team to do value-adding tasks. Last but not the least is the confidence on the numbers is much higher. Read full review ScreenShots
