In the field of real estate and asset management, we implement a wide range of requirements with the help of Jedox. The project orientation of Jedox is very helpful in the standardization of solutions. The design interface makes it possible for users to implement their own ideas at minimum of costs.

Pros

The OLAP engine is fast and reliable. The interface is intuitive. Projects can be implemented logically and quickly. The designer interface makes it possible to use existing basic knowledge almost everywhere.
Full WEB integration enables productive work and effective administration from anywhere.

Cons

The biggest weakness of Jedox is its documentation. Sadly, the roots of Jedox have been forgotten and the original documentation has been replaced with a clumsy knowledgebase. In the intoxication of growth is the fact that knowledge acquisition and exchange are essential unfortunately fallen by the wayside.

Jedox | Adaptive Tool for almost all operational challengens

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

We use Jedox mainly for corporate planning (income statement, balance sheet, cash flow, operating figures, HR) and reporting. Sometimes it is also used for performance measurement (project management) as well as for mathematical optimization problems.

Pros

It is ingenious how much is already included in the standard license (from integration interfaces to mobile reporting access). The flexibility of working with models as templates or with your own design from scratch is also convincing. With us, it adapts ideally to the requirements of everyday data collection and reporting.

Cons

The detail settings are not always so user-friendly. In most cases, however, further explanations can be found on the homepage.

Jedox within Public Utility Companies

We are, as a first step, in the process of connecting and modelling several Controlling and Reporting processes spread out over all of the subsidiaries within our group and plan to extend the use of Jedox for Planning and some Accounting processes as well.

Pros

It's an relatively easy to use, well developed, taken care for and supported product which has some (at least in this combination) unique features and combines several functions useful for Accounting, Controlling, Planning, Reporting and Management if integrated properly.

Cons

No huge cons here aside from the occasional bug (within the presentation layer) and sometimes slow speeds when aggregating and working with huge amounts of data.

I've been implementing Jedox for budgeting forecasting and reporting

Review Source: Capterra

It is very easy to get up and running and for an Excel user very intuitive. Being able to have centralized data helps keep sundry reports all in sync.

Pros

I like the power and flexibility of the integration tool. It has a very robust ETL component that enables connections to a myriad of sources and a very robust set of transformation tools.

I also very much like the web development interface as it is very excel-like and easy to create very flexible reports.

Cons

When doing data transformations in the integration the fact that it is case sensitive I feel is a bit of an unnecessary nuisance.

It doesn't matter what data you have, from HR to finance, from serious to ballgame statistics, even not-out-of-the-box-solutions are fun to construct. And it's the fun that keeps me invested.

Pros

Ease of use and handling of elements. ETL and Cubes are built quickly and usual reportings are easy to build. However, almost always there are several ways to accomplish a given objective. The tool supports flexible and agile approachs.

Cons

UI is somewhat outdated and some features of the similar-looking excel aren't implemented (dashed lines, variable bar sizes, multi-axles).

Pros

We especially liked the software that all evaluations for the field service can be called up without a lot of loading time. Furthermore, the Forcast creations are very time-saving

Cons

The software demonstration was that the product can be used within 10 days. This is not possible. Unfortunately, there are occasionally load errors that can only be solved with the help of support.

It does what it should do. But "normal" controllers are not able to design own dashboards. They need a lot of training before.

Pros

Excel like development of web dashboards.
The integrator is very powerful and easy to user if you understand how it should be used

Cons

Development of bigger web dashboards needs more then just excel knowledge to be fast.
Bigger web Dashboards are Slow compared to classic web pages.

Entering values is not as straight forward as expected (excel like). You have to use # in consolidated elements and the provided wizard is not always functioning.

Review Source: Capterra

Because of its closeness to excel and easy handling we were able to implement reports as well as planning masks for different departments in a short time. Due to the well realized coaching from Jedox Consultants knowledge was transferred to several key users in just a few days and we were able to configure other parts on ourself.

Pros

For excel users it is easy to use because of it´s closeness to excel and options for planning, analysis and reporting in excel via add-in as well as in an excel like web interface with similar functions.
The ETL process is figurative and easy to track the different steps.

Cons

Sometimes drag and drop would be nice to use.

Especially the replacement of an extensive and complex Excel leads to enthusiasm again and again. Both for the developer, the customer and at the end for the user. This has always been fun to look at

Pros

the software is absolutely customer oriented. Due to the clear cycles it is known when it is the next upgrade. After an upgrade all old functions always worked and the new ones were mostly well documented for the partners. The knowledge base is also always up to date.

Cons

Access to old updates is virtually non-existent. Also HotFix administration does not exist. The support helps there also only very limited.

Experiences with Jedox

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Review Source: Capterra

We are using Jedox mainly for reporting currently, we would like to use Jedox as a repository for our data to produce reports that are consistent across the organisation. We are also going to use Jedox to create our Budget Model. I have only used Jedox for a couple of months and have had good experiences with it and can see the potential for the future.

Pros

Jedox is flexible, it allows you to extract data from any source systems and build the cubes that is relevant for any reporting requirements. Jedox Web Report is easy to use and it has a similar look and feel of Excel which means users who are used to using Excel is comfortable with using it. The support provided by the vendor is very good.

Cons

It is also the flexibility that Jedox offers. This means you need to have the right person in the organisation in order to set up the system correctly and use Jedox to its full potential.
