FREIBURG, Germany, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - On April 8, 2013 Jedox will
release Jedox Version 5, their self-service business intelligence and
analytics suite. Jedox 5 offers many new features and increases
planning, analysis and reporting capabilities and performance. In
addition, for the first time, Jedox will offer their new Base version
at no cost, at the same release level as the Premium version.
Until recently, Jedox's free Open Source version has always been 15 to
18 months older than the latest version. Beginning with Version 5, this
will change, as OLAP Server source code becomes available as an Open
Source license on SourceForge. "This step will solidify our strategy of
providing a cost-effective BI and performance management platform,"
said Jedox CEO and founder, Kristian Raue, explaining the corporation's
new licensing strategy.
From now on, Jedox Base and Jedox Premium will feature the same OLAP
Server-with complete functionality. What's more, the Base version of
Jedox will contain an Excel client, also free of charge. This will
enable users to implement powerful BI and self-service performance
management solutions without license costs. Jedox Base database size,
dimensions, or number of Base users will not be restricted in any way.
Jedox Premium differs from Jedox Base by providing extended capabilities
like advanced Excel functionality, web environment, mobile device
support, ETL, SAP integration, user access control, and GPU-powered
co-processing for working with large datasets.
Bonus feature: For the first thirty days after installation all Jedox
Base version users will have the opportunity to test the functions of
Jedox Premium for free. Purchasing a Premium license key will enable
you to leverage in Jedox Premium all the functionalities, databases,
and user interfaces modeled in Jedox Base-without having to make
changes. Alternatively, after thirty days users may request from Jedox
a free license key for the Base product.
Headquartered in Freiburg, Germany, publicly traded Jedox AG is a
leading provider of self-service BI and performance management
solutions. Its product range includes software, support,
