What's New in Wyn Enterprise Server v7.1

The latest release of Wyn Enterprise is here. The 7.1 release focuses on embedding Wyn Enterprise as part of existing business applications to provide enterprise grade reports and dashboard self-service on the go for business users. New key features include the addition of new Datasource providers and the ability to group documents together to treat as a Document Binder across preview and collaboration. Another notable feature is the ability for Dashboards to access data using DirectQuery datasets, allowing for more focused and optimized retrieval of live data from data providers. Additionally, this release delves into providing Field Level Data Security governed by Role based governance rules, allowing for more granular level of data security as compared to row-level data governance rules in other business intelligence products.

New Data Sources

In the latest 7.1 release, we are excited to introduce an array of new connectors that seamlessly integrate with Wyn, enhancing your data retrieval experience. These connectors are designed to enable you to access data natively within Wyn, providing you with a broader spectrum of data sources. With these additions, you can now effortlessly harness insights from the following data repositories:

  • TeraData
  • SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS)

  • Azure Synapse (using Synapse SQL)

With these new connectors, we aim to provide you with a more diverse and comprehensive suite of data sources, empowering you to make data-driven decisions with greater ease and efficiency. Whether you are leveraging TeraData, SQL Server Analysis Services, or Azure Synapse, Wyn continues to evolve as a versatile and user-friendly platform for all your data needs.

Data Provider Improvements

As part of our commitment to delivering a robust and user-friendly data management experience, the 7.1 release brings significant enhancements to our existing data providers. We have focused on addressing key pain points and limitations, ensuring that you have greater control and efficiency in managing your data. The following improvements highlight our dedication to refining the user experience and optimizing data access across various providers:

  • Customizable Schema for CSV and MongoDB Datasources: With the latest release, users can now customize the schema for CSV and MongoDB datasources. This means you have the power to tailor the data structure to match your specific requirements, providing a more personalized and efficient data retrieval process.

  • Optimized Performance for Data Access Across All Providers: This enhancement translates to faster and more efficient retrieval of data, improving the overall responsiveness of the platform. Whether you are querying large datasets or working with real-time data streams, the optimized performance ensures a smooth and seamless experience, empowering you to derive insights with minimal latency.

Dataset Enhancements

In our ongoing efforts to elevate the functionality and versatility of Wyn, the 7.1 release introduces several impactful enhancements to datasets, providing users with even more powerful tools to streamline their data management and analysis processes. These include:

  • DirectQuery Datasets for Dashboards: We are thrilled to unveil the introduction of DirectQuery Datasets tailored specifically for dashboards. This enhancement marks a significant leap forward in real-time data interaction and visualization. With DirectQuery Datasets, you can now seamlessly connect your dashboards directly to the data source, eliminating the need for data duplication and ensuring that your visualizations reflect the most up-to-date information.

  • Expanded Syntax Support in WynSQL Notation: This enhancement provides users with a broader range of options and capabilities when crafting custom queries. Whether you are performing complex data transformations, joining disparate datasets, or implementing advanced analytics, the expanded syntax support ensures that you can express your queries in a way that aligns precisely with your data manipulation needs. This enhancement not only caters to seasoned SQL professionals but also empowers users at all skill levels to harness the full potential of Wyn's data processing capabilities.

Document Binders

Document Binders have been updated and now empower users to elevate their document organization, accessibility, and presentation capabilities within the portal.

  • View, Export, and Schedule Document Binders: users can now seamlessly view, export, and schedule collections of Documents, including Reports and Dashboards, directly within the portal. This feature simplifies the process of managing related documents, making it easier to organize and access them as a cohesive unit.

  • Enhanced Document Binder Export with PDF Merging: Document Binder Export capabilities have been enhanced to support the merging of PDFs into a single file. This enhancement streamlines the export process, ensuring that users can effortlessly consolidate multiple documents into a unified and easily shareable format.

  • Improved Collaboration and Sharing: Document Binders foster improved collaboration by enabling end users to group documents that are frequently worked on together. This functionality facilitates better organization for presentations, exports, scheduled tasks, and more. Users can now seamlessly share and preview Document Binders, making it convenient to collaborate on projects and share insights.

Security Enhancements

In our unwavering commitment to fortify your data protection strategies, the 7.1 release introduces robust security enhancements aimed at providing users with more nuanced control over their data access and sharing capabilities. Here are the key security features that have been incorporated:

  • Role-based Column Level Security with Dataset Views (Redact/Hide Columns): This feature empowers data administrators to exercise granular control over column-level access within Dataset Views. Now, you can redact or hide specific columns based on user roles, ensuring that sensitive information, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), is only visible to authorized individuals. This level of precision in data access management eliminates the need to maintain multiple datasets for varying levels of column-based access, streamlining data administration and enhancing overall security.

  • New Permissions for Controlling Export Raw Data from Dashboards: Enhance your governance over exported data with the introduction of new permissions for controlling the Export Raw Data capability from Dashboards. Administrators now have the flexibility to determine which users or roles can export raw data, adding an additional layer of control over sensitive information. This feature is particularly valuable in scenarios where regulatory compliance or internal policies dictate strict control over data export, ensuring that your organization adheres to the highest standards of data governance.

Additional Customer Related Enhancements
