Simplified Planning, Enhanced Performance: Self-Service BI
FREIBURG, Germany, September 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
“Spreadsheet-driven corporate controlling and liquidity planning” eventually led to
the collapse of a major drugstore chain, reported German news weekly Der Spiegel, based on
the corporation’s insolvency report. Thankfully, there is no need for corporations to be
chained to such old-fashioned tools. Rather, controlling, planning, analysis, and
reporting can be brought up to speed with easy-to-understand software, as the latest
version of the popular Jedox Suite proves.
Jedox Suite is a new software solution for business intelligence (BI) and performance
management, uniting all relevant functions in a comprehensive platform that can be
customized to fit individual client requirements. The kicker is that its user interface is
already intuitively familiar to Excel(R) spreadsheet users. This functionality enables
business users to autonomously model reports, analysis, and planning-true to the slogan of
“self-service BI,” which is increasingly in demand.
Controlling is a classic application arena for Jedox 4, since sales, revenue, results
planning, and other departments require continuous cost and efficiency analysis. For
instance, users can use the Jedox 4 Suite for valid project controlling-ensuring that
project goals, deadlines, and budgets remain on track. Other uses for Jedox 4 are
production controlling, as well as complex cost and production simulation. “Just take new
orders or customized client requests that need to be addressed quickly. Jedox 4 delivers
the facts we need to plan production precisely and safely. Now we can adapt production
planning in rolling cycles,” explained Dr. Hartmut Trier, managing director and owner of
Scherer & Trier, a well-known supplier for the automotive industry-and Jedox customer.
In its newly released Version 4, the Jedox solution features a re-tooled user
interface. What’s more, Jedox 4-more powerful than ever before and now with improved
encoding technology–is even easier to integrate with the existing corporate IT landscape.
Featuring improved relational reporting Excel “drill-through” functionality to access
detailed data, Jedox 4 also features increased performance and optimized storage
capability for large and extremely large data models. Said Kristian Raue, Chairman of the
Board of Jedox AG, “This functionality lets us adapt to increasing data size, even in
Satisfied pilot users of Jedox Suite Version 4 include Airbus Operations GmbH,
Berliner Vivantes-Kliniken, and Universitatsmedizin Gottingen.
