Jedox Cloud provides you with fast and complete Business Intelligence and Performance Management. Within the Jedox Cloud you can enjoy full Jedox functionality on-demand. Here we describe how you can use the Jedox Cloud free 14-day trial.
Starting your Jedox Cloud 14-day trial
At the Jedox website, use the top navigation bar to go to Product → Jedox Cloud.
In the first dialog the fields with * are required:
After your registration, you will receive an email with a link to activate your personal Cloud instance. This link confirms your email and opens the initial Cloud Console, which has two tabs, Overview and Settings.
Select the desired language and the nearest location for your cloud instance. After creating your cloud instance (average time for creation is 2 hours), you will receive a second email with a link to log in as user with administrator privileges. With this account, you will be able to explore the full feature set of Jedox: manage OLAP models, develop applications, manage your ETL processes, connections and users and publish reports to your end users.
Alternatively you can also use your Jedox Cloud Trial environment from Microsoft Excel. If you want to view and create your own Excel reports and OLAP models via the Excel interface, configure the Excel Add-in accordingly (Host: h11-007.cloud.jedox.com, Port: 7777, Username: admin, Password: <use password you provided at registration>).
