Jedox Announces a New Development for its Open-Source OLAP Palo Product

Jedox, an international software company that develops and markets commercial, open source-based planning, analysis and
reporting solutions, has announced a new development for its Open-Source OLAP Palo product – the industry’s first free ODBO driver (MDX) in the cost-free download of Palo for Excel.

The new ODBO connectivity allows users to carry out advanced OLAP-based Pivot Table queries in Excel without the need for expensive licenses for Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. While Pivot
tables in Excel are read-only, Palo users will have the option to writeback values from Excel directly to Palo’s OLAP cubes.

“With Microsoft’s recent announcement of the end of PerformancePoint Planning, this is a great opportunity for users looking for an inexpensive but powerful centralised planning application
utilising the familiar Excel user interface. By adding a writeback facility, Palo becomes an interesting choice for server- and Excel based planning applications in the mid-market space. ‘Excel
plus Palo’ provides all the advantages of a centralised BI solution without the cost and time,” explains Jedox CEO and Founder, Kristian Raue.
