Informer 5.1.2 release offers increased efficiency and collaboration
Making Data Insights Shareable
As organizations look to become more data driven, they are stymied when it comes to scaling to new departments, as installation, implementation and replication of new instances can be labor and time intensive. The new bundling feature with Informer addresses this issue by providing users a consistent, easy way to share instances. A replication that used to take days can now be completed in minutes.
Easy Deployment Across Multi-Tenancy
One of the greatest assets of Informer bundling is the ability to quickly and easily update multiple contexts of a single multi-tenant Informer environment. Partners can disseminate gold standard content or share best practices from individual Users to the entire ecosystem, providing continuous improvement for all.
Query Large Datasets Without All the Latency
Outside of Informer, queries can take hours or even days to process millions or billions of records, but using Informer Datasets allows organizations to curate the exact desired data with its respective governance rules, work flows, and calculations, which are indexed into Elasticsearch for quick sorting and filtering. This is particularly useful for larger organizations needing near real-time Reports on millions of transactions. A user can set Informer to refresh a Dataset periodically throughout the day and only add new or modify changed records. The new options present as follows:
Replace - remove all records and replace them with the new query results.
Append - add new records.
Upsert - add new records, update existing records while never removing old records.
Additional new features and capabilities from Informer 5.1.2 include:
User Defined Fields - Providing a flexible data sharing design that allows you to show different data sets to different sets of Users. Managers can now create a master Report, with individuals only seeing the data that is relevant to their role.
Private Filters – When you work with filters saved to a private folder, you can run Reports with confidence. No one else has access to the filters, so you're the only one responsible for changes.
SQL Savelists - Enable Savelists for customers that moved from U2 to SQL
Other features and improvements, including enhancements to Pivot Tables, and the ability to apply selection criteria to normalized values and bug fixes across the system can be found in the release notes on the Informer Help Center or at http://www.entrinsik.com.
