Welcome to the Jedox Platform Basics course, an introductory course designed to cover the Specialist-level curriculum (200-level courses) outlined by the Jedox Academy plus some insights into Professional-level (300-level courses) use. Here you will learn how to use Jedox for your company’s business intelligence and corporate performance management needs with guidance provided by the Head of Academy, Thomas Arampatzis, and the Online Education Consultant, Sabrina Sebens.
This first session will introduce you to the concepts that drive the Jedox platform with a special focus on what Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) is. You’ll learn OLAP terminology, such as what dimensions, elements, attributes, and cubes are, how Jedox’s multi-dimensional data storage differs from the data storage model you’re probably most familiar with – relational data storage, and show you how to use the Jedox Modeler to view your cubes, dimensions, elements, attributes, and translation information among others. In this first lesson, you’ll get an overview of Jedox’s components, such as the different front ends (Jedox Web, the Jedox Excel Add-In, and Jedox Mobile) and servers, what they are used for, and what Jedox can do for your business. You’re surely familiar with the chaos typical of having many worksheets for tracking massive amounts data in your company, and here you’ll see how Jedox can simplify that data, which naturally leads to speeding up processes. Whether you’re interested in enhancing your Excel experience with the Jedox Add-In or want the full immersion Jedox Web provides with its familiar feel and extended functionality, you’ll be prepared to take on the challenges new projects provide.
