Pros and cons

Pros

Cons

Another positive about Jedox in Excel is that you don't have to change any formatting of the data - it's already in nice & elegant standard (colours, fonts), ready to be shared with audience.

JL

Joanna L.

The Jedox consultants are very friendly and they are able to grasp on the user requirement pretty good.

DL

Debbie L.

It is a very powerful software, which is easy to use. I love the integration into excel which alows for completely new ad hoc reports within minutes.

TH

Tobias H.

Performance was the main problem. It was caused by the complexity of the software after being developed based on individual requirements.

ME

Mónika E.

The concept of performing complex batch calculation processes at run-time seems to be missing.

TB

Tim B.

Minor inconsistencies in the user interface and sometimes the user interface behaves a little weird. However, overall this is minor.

I've been implementing Jedox for budgeting forecasting and reporting

Reviewed 5 years ago

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.

Great Planning and Reporting Tool

Reviewed a year ago

We are very glad that we decided to start we Jedox as Planning and Reporting System some years ago.

Pros

- The implementation was very fast. The cube date base is simple to understand and good to handle. - Reports can be created easily, very similar to excel and without any program skills. There are a few great feateres that help make long and complicated reports to be designed quick and easy. - By using the jedox workflows we are able to send out our monthly reporting fully automated. - We highly recommand iXlog as partner for the implementation

Cons

- The drill-through, which can show details in all reports looks not very nice and can not be customized. Jedox support told us they are currently working on that.

Mr

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The tool is highly intuitive, lessening the time it takes to adjust from any other OLAP system. Hands down, the most impressive feature in Jedox is its ability to create and manage dimension hierarchies and elements. Having used most of the competitors products and an avid fan of Oracle's Essbase, I can say with confidence that no other product out there that does this better.

Cons

Subsets and Variables are very not as easy to use and one false step can lead to bringing the cube down. Another pain point is zero suppression when used in Dynaranges. It should be much easier.

Flexible solution, easy to expand

Reviewed a year ago

It is very flexible: we use it for sales reporting and budgeting, financial reporting and budgeting, but also for reporting on product costing, capex investments and activities of our test center.

Pros

It is a very powerful software, which is easy to use. I love the integration into excel which alows for completely new ad hoc reports within minutes. Also you can start with a small solution for a specific reporting or planning need and expand it easily, even during runtime.

Cons

integrating workflows into custom reports and applications could be easier.

Jedox is a great tool!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Powerful EPM tool that helps us produce all of our financial reporting and simplifies our budgeting and planning process.

Pros

Jedox is highly effective because it is connected directly to our accounting system. The minute we close our books, we are able to produce a full reporting package and we are able to identify accounting errors by generating preliminary financials. It also allows us to complete our forecast almost simultaneously with our close.

Cons

Like most reporting software, it is almost essential to have a knowledgeable partner to support you in the implementation.

System Opinion

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have never had experience with multidimensional modeling before, it has been a very good experience as it serves in a simple way many purposes of the organization. Integration with other systems, response and real time, ease of creating forms and advanced reports without the need for programming knowledge are the most relevant factors and have the greatest impact on the organization.

Pros

- The flexibility of developing forms and reports integrating excel resources, both formulas and variables or references in cells greatly facilitates the development of forms, without requiring advanced programming resources to achieve its objectives; - Real-time response, not requiring programmed loading for data inserted into the system; - Advanced filters with wide criteria linked to the structures...

Cons

- Dimensions such as "Date" that are like text characteristics and not as date characteristics make it difficult to create reports and forms using the features of filters and formulas; - Appear in the function "Palo inserted in the cell" a legend that shows the description of the dimension of the cube position, without the need to consult the modeler; - When describing a "Palo" function, a legend appears where it clearly describes the purpose of the function and the description in each step of it; - Performing filters of elements and / or attributes within the structure of a "Pablo" function could be an advantage to avoid the need to add attributes or dimensions; - Powerful and advanced insights with dynamic graphics can be challenging.

Planning and budgeting

Reviewed 2 years ago

A continuous process of learning and evolution. I see that the product is very consistent and of great performance. Budget management applications are the ones with the best results.

Pros

Very easy to use. With basic training it is already possible to create powerful reports and applications.

Cons

Documentation points need improvement. For certain applications it is necessary to spend more time to understand how the tool works.

Great product for reporting, planning and analysis

Reviewed 2 years ago

From the first contact to the sales department to the moment we implemented Jedox we had consistent support from Jedox. Whenever we needed help or still need help we get an answer in a timely manner. Jedox offers more options than we currently use so there is still potential and every update contains improvement or new functions.

Pros

I really appreciate the way analysis, reporting and planning are combined. For users the front-end is the same for reporting and planning and entering data is made easy. Additionally the planning assistent provides catchy ways to copy data, splash like or reallocate. For power users it is handy to have an Excel add-in parallel to the web frontend to easily analyse data and even prepare data for forecasting and planning. The ETL integrator is built in a logical way so even people who don´t work in the IT department can built dimensions and cubes. Of course some database knowledge ist required to create performant and logic data that fits to the company´s processes. But overall you don´t need programming skills to aggregate your data.

Cons

If you don´t have any knowledge of the "cube world" beforehand you have to get used to thinking in an "OLAP kind of way". Therefore you need more support from consultants and / or some training.

Microsoft friendly Integrated EPM and Strategic Planning tools with Single Source of Truth

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

With Jedox, the enterprises can integrate their strategic activities across your finance, sales & operations, procurement, human resource, productions and other functional department. This is not only creating a single source of truth that will provide a better quality of data that enables the decision-makers to make effective and informed strategic decision at the right time based on the on accurate and consistent data, but also reducing the amount of time and cost consumption during the processes. Meanwhile, it is quite user friendly as it is still linked to the Microsoft platforms that most of the users who are commonly familiar with, as well as the Jedox connector allows the users to extract the data from different source systems and visualise the data with other 3rd party BI tools.

Cons

Although there are different kind of models are available for the customers to select, install and utilise from the Jedox Marketplace. However, the functionalities and capabilities of Jedox can only be optimised through a certain level of customisation and configuration by Jedox consultants before the deployment. A good level of commitment from the end-users is required during the project to allow the model builders to gather sufficient amount of detailed information.

Fast and intuitive

Reviewed 3 years ago

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

Reviewed 3 years ago

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

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

Planning and reporting in public sector

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The product is easy to use and the connectors to a variety of data sources incredibly useful. Our users can easily and independently create their own reports and conduct analysis. When we’ve needed support from Jedox we’ve always found them to be responsive and very helpful.

Cons

No significant cons, we’re largely very happy with the product. To pick a con we have found recently that a feature we were reliant on had been deprecated in the latest release & the documentation on the knowledge base has been lacking in detail how we can transition / rebuild our process.

Great backend, whatever source you have, plans are easy to come by

Reviewed 3 years ago

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).

Great Software!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, the experience has been very positive working with Jedox. The software functionality as well as the support team have been excellent!

Pros

Two things that stand out the most would be reliability and flexibility. I have been working daily in Jedox for the past 6 months and haven't had any issues when it comes to data reliability. Once the data is uploaded and validated everything just works smoothly. As far as flexibility goes I truly feel like I am getting a customized experience.

Cons

If I have to list a Con in the review it would be the excel add-in. The features and functionality of the add-in are great as long as it is the only active add-in. When working in excel with multiple add-ins occasionally it will cause excel to become unresponsive and crash.
