The latest eQube®-BI release, version 8.4/TCRA 14.3.1, is more than just an update to the eQube® Analytics Suite. It brings innovative capabilities and personalization to users in the world of business intelligence. This release offers a host of exciting features and enhancements that empower users to take control of their data like never before. In this blog post, we will explore the standout features that make this release a must-have for data professionals and organizations looking to unlock the full potential of their data. 

Revamped Easy Mapper: Your Data, Your Way 

Central to this release is the revamped Easy Mapper, now equipped with the support to open self-serve cubes and navigate one-dimensional hierarchical and non-hierarchical cubes with ease. Easy Mapper has an intuitive and user-friendly interface designed to simplify the cube creation process. The easy-to-use graphical interface enables users to visually map data from multiple sources, perform data mashups, and apply transformation rules for cube creation. This version emphasizes personalization, allowing users to define and persist canvas layouts and debug configurations as defined by the users themselves. Additionally, embedded object support and refined operations, such as addition, subtraction, and join, ensure a more robust Easy Mapper experience. 

Advanced Charting Capabilities: Elevating Data Visualization 

Charting capabilities have seen significant advancements. With the new Waterfall chart and refined X Axis auto-tick calculations for date series, data visualization reaches new heights. The performance-driven chart export framework now supports Gantt export on Suse Linux 15, and the Network chart has undergone significant enhancements, including seamless integration with third-party event applications. This integration facilitates seamless interactions between the Network chart and these third-party applications. In simpler terms, the Network chart can now communicate with and respond to changes made by external applications, and these applications can similarly receive and process data from the Network chart. This enhanced connectivity introduces new possibilities for leveraging the Network chart within a broader ecosystem of tools and services, enhancing its overall functionality and utility.  


Enhanced Export Functionalities: Tailor-Made Reports at Your Fingertips 

Export functionalities have been broadened to provide a more immersive report exporting experience to PowerPoint, complete with features like supporting the export of container widgets and headers. Personal touches can now be added to PDF exports through signatures, and those keen on presentation precision can customize slide dimensions for PowerPoint exports. Traditional reports have been upgraded, allowing users a selective view of data rows from CubeGrid/DataTable.

Streamlined Authentication: Secure and User-Friendly 

Enhancements in both X509 and SAML authentications ensure a secure and flexible environment. SAML certificate configurations have become optional, and users can directly download Metadata XML without saving all SAML properties. Optional SAML certificate configurations and the direct downloading capability of Metadata XML make the authentication process even more streamlined.

Expanding Plugin Ecosystem: Seamless Integration 

The plugin ecosystem welcomes new additions, including Agile EDM, JanusGraph, Solumina, SAPS4HANA, Simulink, Oracle SCM, Rhapsody, and the XML Plugin. To further enhance security and integration capabilities, SAML authentication supports plugins such as SAPS4HANA, Polarion ALM, Enovia Plugin, Windchill Cloud, JIRA, Cameo (Magicdraw), and the Confluence Plugin.
