Jedox has released its latest version and there are a range of new benefits that make it easier for any business to access more effective analysis and reporting. The Enterprise Performance Management software is currently widely used by those businesses looking to make corporate performance management a smooth and simple process and has a lot of advantages, from shorter budget cycles to more in-depth insights. If you’re looking for ways to use Jedox efficiently, this latest update has a lot to offer.
The latest version of Jedox – 2019.3 – has been created with customisation in mind, providing a number of ways to make analysis and planning more individually tailored. These are some of the key highlights of the new version that provide opportunities for more efficient use of this software:
- Images and charts. There is much more power in Jedox 2019.3 for creating visuals and charts. A larger library and a range of properties to choose from enables the creation of highly customised images. The functionality for arranging data within a chart has also been improved – it’s now possible to arrange a data series from the bottom/left, or the top/right for stacked charts.
- Better use of combo boxes. Jedox provides combo boxes that enable elements to be selected from a drop down list. In the latest version of the software you can now search as you type within dimensions, a much faster way to find an element. The capacity to support a hundred thousand elements (in-preview feature) makes this an essential tool for creating and navigating enterprise-level reports.
- Improved exporting to Excel. The new version of Jedox has upgraded the export of web reports to Excel so that it is a much more seamless transition. For example hidden buttons in a web report will also be hidden in Excel.
- Quicker data analysis. The introduction of an option to set a pre-selected Default View for a specific cube makes analysis faster by removing time consuming first steps.
- Improvements to data modelling capability. A database can be quickly constructed using the software’s Data-driven Modelling (DDM) feature. The new version of the software has upgraded DDM so that it now recognises details such as time dimensions and versions. In 2019.3 there are now two predefined subsets: “All” (all elements sorted by name, flat) and “Base” (base level elements only, sorted by name, flat).
- Better integration with the cloud. Integration for REST connections is now smoother and more secure thanks to recent upgrades. In particular with the “OAuthToken,” which deals with token authentication, the token only needs to be specified once and then can be reused.
- Integration with other systems. Improvements have also been made in this version of Jedox to allow for upgrades to the way the software interacts with others, including connectivity to Qlik BI systems and SAP S/4HANA.
If your business is currently working with Jedox, these latest changes could enable you to get more from the software and use it more efficiently.
