Overall Satisfaction with Jedox
My company is a provider of tailored business intelligence solutions. We work with a number of BI technologies based on the specific requirements of our clients. We specialize in services around Power BI and the www.acterys.com solution. Particularly around integrated planning/budgeting, management dashboards and specialized solutions that require real time write back, concept driven modelling (i.e. business end users without IT skills can simulate changes of model structures e.g. dimensions hierarchies) and more complex calculations models.
- integration into Excel
- Strong Security down to cell level
- Mobile device support
- Limited data discovery features but integration with third party products
- Complex projects require expertise of specialised consultants
- Limited options for online training but extensive in person training available
- Limited scalability. For systems with more than 50 users there are better solutions
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wants to move in the "Enterprise" space but the product doesn't have the required scalability and is still running on outdated open source server technologies.

Our company still supports Jedox clients but recommends to review more modern technologies that integrate data discovery and planning seamlessly.
ETL functionality with integration to relational database systems, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL and links them through a JDBC interface. Users may also extract further data from flat files or XML files, web services, and LDAP systems. Jedox ETL may be integrated with other software applications using a SOAP-based web service interface. Apart from the data import in Jedox, the ETL module also supports drill-through from the OLAP database to data records in the source systems. All in all though, ETL is much more end user oriented in newer solutions like Power Query and Acterys Connectors
A wide variety of animated and chart types. Geospatial analysis available through integration of Google Maps. More flexible interaction on charts currently requires scripts. Compared to other visualization tools like Tableau or Power BI not state of the art
