Yellowfin Enterprise Reporting and BI – Version 2.4 Released

  • 20 April, 2006 10:40

<p>Announcing the release of Yellowfin R2.4.</p>
<p>The changes in this release significantly enhance the BI and Information Collaboration capability.</p>
<p>The needs of business users continues to drive the development philosophy and with R2.4 Yellowfin delivers even greater business advantage through easy to use yet powerful Business Intelligence tools.</p>
<p>Major Innovations</p>
<p>The major innovations in this release which continue to set Yellowfin apart from our competitors include:
• Report Archival
The most compelling change within this release is report archival. This allows users not only to save their report definition but to save copies of the data as well – allowing them to view previous instances of the report. No scripting, no background tasks – all managed through the Yellowfin interface.</p>
<p>• View Constraints
One of the major issues in delivering BI authoring capability to users is ensuring that the publish reports which contain accurate data. With Yellowfin’s constraint process organisations can place rules on data elements to ensure that only a correct combination can be used.</p>
<p>• Jasper Integration
Whilst Yellowfin uses a page design concept for report authoring Jasper XML allows users to author banded reports similar to Crystal and ideal for production style reporting such as invoices. By integration Jasper XML into Yellowfin users can publish and manage Jasper reports through the Yellowfin platform. Find out more about Jasper</p>
