The company’s flagship product is Jedox Suite, a flexible BI and performance management product with planning, reporting and analysis capabilities. The suite runs on the company’s own multidimensional in-memory database. The underlying philosophy of Jedox Suite is to extend the familiar Excel environment with specific BI functionality. The solution, which offers both an Excel client and Web interface resembling a spreadsheet as front ends, was first launched in 2004. The Excel add-in is a classic spreadsheet interface combining well-known Excel functions with additional Jedox features. The Web client has a browser-based spreadsheet interface – a type of Excel on the Web – with additional functions. According to the company, more than 1,900 clients use the Jedox product today.

The product is aimed at business power users who create individual planning, reporting and analysis applications with the flexible multidimensional in-memory database in a familiar spreadsheet environment. However, tasks such as integrating data into Jedox OLAP Server 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. Centralized top-down and decentralized bottom-up planning scenarios can be implemented with Jedox. Classified as a development environment, in its latest version Jedox now provides predefined planning models for P&L, cost center, sales and HR via its own marketplace integrated in Jedox Suite.

User & Use Cases

Jedox Suite is a flexible BI and performance management product. Besides planning, Jedox is typically used for ad hoc query, standard/enterprise reporting, data analysis and dashboarding. Many customers also intend to use Jedox for advanced analysis in the future.

As the company size figures show, Jedox is mainly used in mid-sized companies (100-2,500 employees) with a median number of 30 users in a common environment (with 15 of them using planning functionality).

However, the mean of 71 users per company (39 users for planning) tells us that the product can also be used in larger environments. 69 percent of Jedox users are planning users – compared to the survey average of 60 percent – reflecting the fact that Jedox is a planning tool that also offers comprehensive functionality for BI.
