Jedox is a flexible BI and CPM product for planning, reporting and analysis. The suite, which runs on the company’s own multidimensional database, is designed for business users. The underlying philosophy of Jedox is to extend the familiar Excel environment with specific BI and planning functionality. The solution offers both an Excel client and a web interface resembling a spreadsheet as front ends.
Established in 2002, Jedox has grown into a team of more than 150 employees. The vendor serves 2,500 clients in 140 countries worldwide through its headquarters in Freiburg, Germany, its seven international offices, and a network of 250 partners.
The company’s flagship product is Jedox, a flexible BI and CPM product with planning, reporting and analysis capabilities. The solution, which offers both an Excel client and web interface as front ends, was first launched in 2004.
The product is aimed at business power users who create individual planning, reporting and analysis applications. With the company’s own in-memory database, users have the advantage of a flexible multidimensional experience while staying in their familiar spreadsheet environment. However, tasks such as integrating data into Jedox OLAP Server using the vendor’s web-based Jedox Integrator product may require IT support. Trained business users can later take on responsibility for the administration and further development of Jedox applications. These applications can be published to large groups of users through Jedox Web and Jedox Mobile.
Both centralized top-down and decentralized bottom-up planning scenarios can be implemented with Jedox. Jedox now provides approximately 50 predefined models created itself or by partners (e.g., for balance sheet, P&L, cost center, sales planning, HR planning and financial consolidation) via its own marketplace, which is integrated in Jedox.
