Valuemation Analytics 4.11: New Release Now Available

The new release 4.11 of our software Valuemation Analytics is now available. This version offers you the following new features:

Significantly shorter and more flexible loading times

Previously, the data in Valuemation Analytics was completely reloaded every night. The new Change Data Capture (CDC) procedure changes this: If the data source system provides the information that a data change has taken place at a certain point in time, Valuemation Analytics can now recognize the changed data and load it into the extraction area database. In conjunction with the newly implemented delta load functionality, only the changes to the data are processed. This leads to a performance and time saving as well as to a higher resource efficiency.

This example explains how it works:

  • Day 1:
    The data is loaded for the first time. The system extracts what it finds in the source database and processes the data to the data mart.
  • Day 2:
    The system only extracts the changes, that is, data records that have changed or been added. Only the delta is processed further.
  • Day 3:
    The system extracts only the changes again, and this time only the delta is processed further.

The new delta load functionality not only makes data loading faster, but also more flexible: If necessary, changed data can be reloaded several times a day - for example, every 30 minutes - so that you can always access current data for analyses. In addition, the previous real-time cubes become superfluous.

Enhancement of multitenancy capability

The new version offers enhanced Customizing options in the area of client assignment. Information on users, roles, clients, and so on can be used in Customizing for the Mondrian schema to filter data according to these variables. With a new Dynamic Schema Processor (DSP), you can use additional parameters in Mondrian to manipulate data in the cube.

Re-Design of the Report Assembler

The new Valuemation Analytics Report Assembler module introduced with Release 4.7 has been redesigned: The Report Assembler frontend has now been updated to the latest Angular version and converted to Material Design - as was previously the case in the Valuemation Analytics Toolkit and Scheduler (see Release 4.10). This means that an extremely modern and intuitive frontend is now available in all modules.

With the new Release 4.11, the existing Report Assembler functions have been combined in a specific toolbar and an additional function for cloning tiles has been added.

Uniform integrated product versions

As of Release 4.11, Valuemation Analytics is used in the same version of both the Valuemation suite and the license management software Smart Track from Aspera. Users of both USU software products thus use the same user interface and the same functionalities, which increases user friendliness and ease of use.

Detailed Release Notes

The detailed release information for users and administrators as well as the documentation can be found as usual in the download area of our support page. To access it, you will need your personal login data, which you can request via the user registration page if required.
