*Disclaimer: iDashboards does not promise, nor warranty any functionality announced in a pre-release statement. Release schedules vary depending by type of product.
iDashboards v9.5 will be released near the end of June, 2017. Included with iDashboards Enterprise is an entirely new product called the Data Hub. The Data Hub focuses on data manipulation and other data performance-related tasks. In addition to doing ETL (Extract, Transform and Loading of data), it will import named ranges from Excel spreadsheets into a database to be used as a data source. This will help alleviate issues with the undesirable ODBC Excel driver. This will result in increasing dashboard performance, allowance of 64-bit servers, and utilization of the newer Java 8. Please consult with our technical support department for details on how to migrate existing charts.
Within the main application the updates to the dashboard UI include:
- Date truncation while building a chart
- New skin colors
- New default colors (used for Y-axis and charts like: Pie, Bubble, Tabular, etc.)
- HTML5 User Application improvements: thumbnails, navigation, and text display
