Closing the gap between financial planning and reporting: Jedox & Power BI

With more and more organisations becoming increasingly data-driven, there is a dire need for creating a streamlined process across your organisation that provides better insights of your business data to make quick and informed decisions. Combining Microsoft Power BI and a modern planning solution like Jedox, enriches spread sheeted data by easily transforming and visualizing it.

Power BI

Power BI offers low code and high productivity application platforms to minimize costs and support rapidly changing needs within the business, allowing you to connect to a vast number of data sources for visualisation and reporting. Progressively, AI capabilities are being introduced to the platforms to support users with better insights and analysis of data presented in an easy to consume manner. These platforms are designed to integrate with existing business data e.g.  CRM or ERP systems and existing business process applications.


Jedox creates integrated planning, budgeting, and forecasting solutions referred to as EPM (Enterprise Performance Management). Jedox makes your planning more collaborative with pre-built configurable apps for integrated business planning, fast intuitive business modelling, consistent data model and harmonized workflows

This combined with a business intelligence platform where you can analyse and visualise data, build dashboards/reports and aggregate data from your CRM or ERP and be able to drill down to single transactional levels allows for long-term strategy development and increased collaboration between business functions.
