Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany headquartered cloud based EMP solution Jedox is on its journey to provide the best ever technology to figure out the planning and analysis of the global economy.
The organizations of today’s ultra modernized world are relying on the technologies for figuring out the best period of time which will be the thundering period for the global economy. They even want the exact prediction of that week, month or year that will help them to achieve the thunderous growth for their organization and Jedox is the company that is working to provide them these beneficiaries.
Originally, the software of the company was developed to work in the cloud or on-premises and mainly for the financial planners, as stated above but over the last few years the roots of Jedox expanded to a wider extent and they started to work in the HR planning and procurement.
Purpose of Raising the Funds
Jedox plans to deploy the raw capital in enlarging the footprints of the company, enhancing their cloud based service, to scale their product innovation team, to support the customers of beyond the geographies and to increase the customer success they want to increase their investment in that also.
The CEO of Jedox, Mr. Florian Winter stein, who was appointed as the CEO of Jedox in 2018, said that they want to focus on more departments other than the finance and the company considers the Financial Planning and Analysis, which is also called as FP&A as XPNA.
He explains that the name Jedox doesn’t have any meaning in itself and the company has landed its focus on the ‘X’, which means that everyone in the company is working to expand the footprints beyond the original verticals of Jedox, which is finance.
Jedox has mirrored the cloud world with the real AI.
Winterstein explained about the AI in a statement saying that he gets annoyed in the understanding of the actual meaning of an AI when he is brought up like this. People are just doing their simple predictions and statistical modeling, which is not AI at all.
He then quickly said that ‘everything we do, is not an AI’ and added that if we look at the customers, out of 2,500 roughly 100 customers are using the AI in real life and another 2,400 are just using the imagined form of AI made by the other people.
