Jedox

Best suited as a highly customized and compact EPM / BI solution (less than 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, even if Jedox will tell you different things because all of the data is kept in RAM (MOLAP technology). 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.).

Oracle Hyperion

Well suited: For use in multiple offices around the world. I was able to obtain financial reporting data from 5 foreign offices and then consolidate their data with 3 domestic USA offices to prepare a consolidated financial statement.Less Appropriate: Translating the financial value for consulting services could be a bit challenging because that required human interaction and judgement. It would have been great to be able to set up some software to be able to interpret this and let it run for all future project work revenue projection.

Pros

Jedox

  • 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.
Tobias Crush | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Hyperion

  • This product handles budgeting by Employee and/or Position very well. It is highly flexible and allows Hyperion administrators the ability to develop a planning application that fits a variety of different business needs.
  • It is great at calculating benefits using business rules to automate the population of these fringe costs in the overall budget planning process. This greatly reduces user error.
  • It allows you to seed the operating budget based on changes to key drivers, such as percentage increases, flat dollar increases and more detailed changes using business rules.
  • Allows visibility into the plans for each unit across the organization, rolled up into an overall budget for the campus.
  • It handles the creation of budgets with multiple chartfield segments or dimensions, which most other budgeting systems cannot handle well. It can aggregate these very quickly.

Cons

Jedox

  • 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.
Steve Adams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Hyperion

  • One pain point for us is the consolidation and translation process. Needing to translate the data over and over again is frustrating and there is no visibility into how many users are running a translation. If multiple users attempt to translate the same data set, say goodbye to your performance but you have no way of knowing! (Unless you want to pull up a task audit which is not a very realistic expectation). It has the been the quickest way for us to bring the system to it's knees. The consolidation process performs in direct correlation to the complexity of the calculation/consolidation rules. So, while the product is extremely flexible, you still have to be careful how you design your rules and calculations to make sure that you do it on the smallest subset of data as possible to avoid large processing times. This makes sense, but requires some significant expertise that most organizations do not have in-house.
  • The Hyperion Financial Reporting product is ridiculously outdated and clunky to use. The interface for designing reports is not intuitive, and not easy to modify once a report is built. I think there must be a strategic decision to move away from it and go to something more like Oracle BI because I just can't understand why in the world they don't update the reporting product. It also requires a significant level of expertise to be able to use. Not a great solution at all if you want multiple end-users to create reports in something other than Excel. Nobody except the HFM admin (which I used to be) in our company even touches this module.
  • Another pain point is the amount of IT support that is required to run this thing, and again, specialized knowledge of Hyperion products and how they work is required for IT to adequately support it. This goes for application servers and the Oracle database that the applications are running on.

We're in the middle of the road because we are not sure that other products on the market fit the bill for what we need yet. Hyperion is expensive and burdensome from an administrator and maintenance standpoint, but it still seems to be the best solution for what we need. Show us an equally capable SaaS consolidation product and we'll talk again.

Usability

Jedox

Based on 2 answers
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 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.

The premium support team provides much needed dedicated customer service which we are after for what we have paid for this service. We are satisfied with the service and support and do not have any instance where there was an issue that requires escalation to get the right support team. Though the incidence of major issues that requires the premium support are less, we prefer to keep this as a safety net.

Implementation

Jedox

Jedox 9.1
Based on 1 answer
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

Alternatives Considered

Jedox

Jedox Base which has been removed from the market used to be a free option in the in-memory database space capable of write back/modelling. Now the company wants to move in the "Enterprise" space but the product doesn't have the required scalability and is still running on outdated open source server technologies.

I use Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Mangement because the company I work at requires me to use it in the Financial Planning sector as most of their data is stored in it. I am open minded and ready to use other performance management tools created by Oracle if my work permits.

Scalability

Jedox

Jedox 4.0
Based on 2 answers
Scalability is one of the disadvantages of Jedox. Applications with >100 CCU (of course this number is very rough, as it also depends on the complexity of the application) scale poorly in comparison to other EPM vendors. With Jedox it is difficult to scale big applications as there are no standardized / easy-to-implement ways to do it. As a matter of fact, even a classic two-tier architecture (separate olap and web servers) is pretty complicated to implement with Jedox (when we keep in mind, that we are in the 21st century and you would expect to set it up in a few clicks during the Jedox installation, but you actually have to go through a bunch of Jedox config files on each server and edit the IP's and other parameters by hand in several redundant places / files to set it up properly and working; here I dont even start to speak about setting-up load balancing, adding more servers etc. ).

  • Oracle Hyperion allows us to automate and consolidate financial data that used to be performed manually in spreadsheets. From that perspective the ROI is huge.
  • Oracle Hyperion functionality is extensive and allows us to perform most functions for planning, consolidating and reporting on our financial data.
  • One negative with Oracle Hyperion is that it is complicated to implement and maintain. It takes expertise at all levels (infrastructure and management) to realize the benefits from it.
