Release Notes Evolve 2020.1.1

What's New in erwin Evolve 2020.1

What's New in erwin Evolve 2020.1

 

erwin Evolve 2020.1 is the latest release of the erwin Evolve Suite.

Major Release 2020.1

Major Release 2020.1

 

Following the successful introduction of Web Modeler, this 2020.1 release brings significant enhancements, including a high level of support for Shape Regions, Object and Association support offering clear & delete, and box-in-box support that can now create associations on publishing. This makes diagramming on the web a whole lot more capable.  

As well as significant improvements to Web Modeler, erwin Evolve 2020.1 introduces two new products:

New product: erwin Evolve Analytics Accelerator 2

Completely re-imagined from the ground up, Analytics Accelerator brings LIVE BI reporting to your models.

No need to wait for that overnight batch job, your Analytics are continually refreshed, and there is more...

Not only can you run BI reports on the most up to date data, but you are now able to report on the history of you models too.

Queries like, ‘show me all the objects that changed in the last 3 months, who made the changes, and what were they’ are easily within your grasp, using whichever* BI reporting tool you choose to use.

New product: erwin DM data import 2

Two years ago we brought data model import from erwin DM to Evolve, now we introduce the next generation of DM importing. Faster, more automated, and with better support for Evolve Web Platform. You can now keep your data models up to date in Evolve, and associate this with your Processes and Applications from the Web.

erwin Evolve 2020.1 also brings the following enhancements:

 New Simple Grid View (evolve View)

A new table type has been added that can be used in place of the Simple Table, which not only supports Server-side Jump and Merge, but also offers filtering and sorting for the end user.

erwin Evolve Web Platform Security Update

In keeping with the expected security of our platform, we bring the necessary updates and provide certification from our third-party testing team.

Less nagging when using temporary licenses

Our temporary licenses now nag only when there are 15 days left on the clock. This removes the annoyance of clicking a warning on starting our applications, when the license has months to run.

Log messages are now much less busy

Logging, now has a much tidier output when choosing the different levels. Most notably ‘Info’ is available, to provide all your analytics-based logs, but saving you from the ‘Debug’ level of detail. It is now much easier to see the wood for the trees, and the log files will not grow so fast. ‘Debug’ is still available, for when you really need it.

* BI tool must support SQL Server as a data source.

Extended Service Release 2020.1.1

Extended Service Release 2020.1.1

Following the successful introduction of Web Modeler, this 2020.1.1 release brings significant enhancements with Undo/Redo in Web Modeler, a much faster Global search, improvements in the Analytic Accelerator Service along with enhancements to XML Import and Communicator for Word (C4W) to make the tool more capable.

Undo / Redo in Web Modeler

Now able to Undo and Redo changes to shapes and object values in the Web Modeler using CTRL+Z and CTRL+SHIFT+Z.

Global Search with a higher rate of indexing

Global Search is now much faster at indexing large amounts of changed data.

Improvements in the Analytic Accelerator Service

It can now optionally show names or the script names of the objects, which makes queries more convenient.

The table that contains the changes made to each object now shows the current value in addition to the previous value. Previously the current value had to be obtained from the object's table. This change again makes querying data simpler, with less need for complex joins.

XML Import

Option to import associations by type, source, and target instead of GUIDs.
This ensures associations will get updated if necessary rather than duplicated.
See here for more details.

Communicator for Word Filtering (C4W)

Now has the ability to filter based on property values to produce reduce sized XML files.
See here for more details.

Evolve static page client-side caching

Improved the performance of both static sites, and some static areas of dynamic sites, by intelligently caching content on the client browser as needed.

Fixes to stability and useability of Web Modeler

And many bug fixes and tweaks to ensure the user experience
