Jedox: Enterprise planning software for Excel users
Users who want to create their own data analyses and reports for different purposes require correspondingly appropriate BI tools. Whether using an open source or proprietary solution (or both), your choice should be based on the function involved and should have the ability to be flexibly combined with other elements.
Jedox offers a complete range of functions for reporting, analysis and planning. In particular, it should be noted that ETL processes can be quickly and easily launched from the user interface.
With its Excel front end, the Jedox business intelligence application provides the perfect professional environment for those working in finance and controlling. Users can quickly and easily create reports that they can share with other employees using a variety of different channels.
With the Jedox enterprise planning application, companies can systematically analyse, evaluate and visualise their business data. Unlike other BI suites, Jedox can easily be used via an Excel front end. This gives users who don't possess a great deal of IT expertise the ability to interpret data or create data models – all from their web browser or installation of Microsoft Excel.
For controllers and business analysts who have previously used Excel, PowerPoint, etc. for creating reports and analyses, Jedox provides the ability to take advantage of an online analytical processing system (OLAP) while still working with a familiar environment. For those working with financials, this means they can easily produce controlling solutions for activity-based costings.
And in its GPU version, Jedox can act as a high-performance analytic database for large data sets taken from Hadoop and other Big Data stores. To do this, Jedox uses an optional GPU module to leverage the computing power and memory of a graphics processor, which massively accelerates the corresponding OLAP analyses. The Jedox GPU accelerator is the world's first OLAP engine to make the performance power of graphics cards available for complex multidimensional calculations.
