Overall Satisfaction with Jedox
Currently Jedox is used primarily for planning and reporting for Finance and HR purposes as well as revenue planning. We have future plans to enhance the user experience and extend the use to other business areas and broaden the user base within the company.
- 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
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.
