New Features

User Experience

We have done once again a number of updates in the User Interface. Here are the most notable ones:

📆 When creating a new Task, a Title will be automatically added for you. You're welcome.

🧾 These Release Notes are now available in the About Screen.

✅ Your Lists (Tasks, Destinations, etc) are now looking really different!

  • More information in the Run column
  • Clicking the Status will open the Logs
  • For 360Bind and Wiiisdom Ops a new Result column
  • Shortcuts at the end of the row (Open, Edit, Open Logs, Rerun, and more)

 

New! Wiiisdom Ops for SAP BusinessObjects

Wiiisdom Ops for SAP BusinessObjects is a brand new and agile solution that allows you to carry out automated analytics data quality testing and reconciliation to validate the data that is actually held in your Analytics solutions.

That's right, Data Quality. But the data inside BOBJ! Analytics Data Quality.

We have this already available for Tableau and soon for Microsoft Power BI. But we are pleased to add this capability to 360Suite for Web Intelligence and Crystal Reports!

By creating simple Statistics and/or Data Rules, you can validate that the data inside let's say here a Web Intelligence match your criteria.

  • Statistics to ensure you don't have empty data eg: Query1.orderid != 0
  • Static rules eg: Year=2023 or with a formula Year=%d(yyyy)
  • Validate data in rows eg: Country in (USA, Canada, UK, France)
  • Against your database with a SQL Query! Eg: Revenue = SELECT xyz FROM abc

Data Rules:

Statistic Rules:

Once the Webi has refreshed and we analysed the data you will get a Validated or Failed. Of course you can chose to be notified by email, MS Teams, Slack etc and act on the issue.

This way you can detect, before the users, is the data is wrong for any reasons such as an issue with the ETL feeding the DB the Universe is using, the Universe itself, Row Level Security, Rights, Server issues, etc.

 

📞 Do get in touch if you would like to see it live in action and/or give it a test run!

 

New! 360Vers in Object Mode

A brand new way of doing versioning is now available.

Do version control directly on the object. Even on Universes!

Work in Draft! Awesome when you need to work in Production and avoid disturbing the users (I'm sure you don't 🤷‍♂️).

Compare, Rollback, Audit and a lot more! You want to see this. 

We have released a lot already and we have a pretty good roadmap ahead of us*!

*Roadmap items are subject to change at any time.

 

360Univ: Convert UNV to UNX

If you still have Universes "old style" (UNV) you really want to start planning and convert them to UNX as their end of life is coming up fast.

We can already help with a lot of things: Backup, Repoint and Test. But we were missing an important part. Convert the actual Universe to UNX!

It is now possible! In bulk! And with the same options that you have in IDT 💪

So if you have a large number of Universes to convert, simply do it in one go thanks to 360Univ!

 

API

You may know by now that 360Suite has an API allowing you to manage your tasks with a RESTful API.

In this release we have added more to the now affectionately called "Geek Mode* 🤓":

360Plus:

  • Promotion with Selection

360View:

  • User Groups Import
  • Update User Groups Membership
  • Update Users Membership
  • Source Owner Update
  • Import UNV Restrictions

 

*That's for you Francois 😁

Compatibility

  • SAML SSO Authentication
  • Support of Snowflake (360Cast / Analytics Ops / 360View)
  • Support of SAP BI 4.3 SP03

Change Logs

None.
