Jedox tranforms our reporting experience.Currenty we use Jedox within our finance team to simplify the effort of monthly management reporting and our budgeting cycle.

Jedox was selected when our previous GL reporting tool went end of life. We haven't looked back since.,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.

Implementing Jedox in our budget cycle dramatically reduced the time and complexity of the process, while making it more transparent.,As a business user, it's hard to "discover" functionality so a bit like Excel we probably miss out on maximising capability.

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.

Jedox can be applied to many different use cases from small to large deployments and from budgeting to enterprise class BI solutions.

We have used Jedox technology as a BI/EPM platform for over 20 customers: large multi-nationals, medium sized businesses, family firms, municipalities, universities and so forth. Most projects start with a focus on creating financial insight and steering. Often it is rolled out throughout the organization to meet all BI and EPM requirements like human resources, sales, procurement and risk. All our Jedox implementations are still being used; have led to 100% satisfaction, more users and more applications to address various common and specific business needs.

At the end of the day the proof of the pudding is in the eating. After an initial implementation and some training many of our Jedox customers have started to build their own BI and EPM applications.

  • Marketplace is still maturing and it's not quite plug and play for some of the models available. This would be a huge gain.
We've found Jedox's strength for us has been in our general ledger reporting and budgeting. We are starting to explore more areas where we can leverage the power of Jedox. Without a dedicated development team inhouse we have struggled to set up new reporting cubes, where some competing products are easier to do this with. Jedox is great for data that isn't needing to be "real time" in our experience. We haven't yet leveraged the prospective capabilities of Jedox. Most importantly maximising the use of the models that we have has been the standout as we haven't had to materially upskill the team to leverage the reporting capabilities of Jedox given the familiar spreadsheet interface.

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.

We are a consulting firm that implements financial analytic solutions built with Jedox. Solutions include planning and budgeting, and cost management.
  • Write-back to the data repository
  • BI combined with CPM functionalities
  • License Pricing
  • Think Reporting can be improved to look like reporting leaders like Tableau
Jedox's planning functionalities are extremely powerful compared to leaders like Cognos TM1, Hyperion and SAP BPC. We are now entering the predictive analytics and will see its level of response when big data come into the game.

User Review: "Jedox is a speed boat for controllers"

Used by all business units
  • Easy to deploy through web interface
  • Highly integrated in Excel, very familiar platform for end users
  • very short implementation at reasonable cost
  • Reporting of relational data is possible but not the strength of Jedox
  • For special requirements it is possible to use programming languages, but you have to learn Groovy, PHP or Java.
It is very well suited for planning applications. It is less appropriate for a large data warehouse with millions of elements in a dimension: millions of products and customers and transactions.
