Semarchy xDM 4.4 Release Notes

Feature Highlights

Semarchy xDM version 4 introduces a new way to look at master data management. Based on the Google Material Design Language, a brand new interface drives an unparalleled user experience. Simplicity and responsive design powers ease-of-use for faster business value and adoption. Advanced collaboration, match and merge, enhanced survivorship capabilities and guided data authoring enable data stewards to support the most complex data management patterns. Graph analytics, interactive search capability, and RESTful Web Services deliver better navigation and interoperability for the most agile MDM solution in the world.

PostgreSQL Certification

This release introduces the certification for PostgreSQL as a database platform for storing both the repositories and data locations, on-premises or in the cloud. PostgreSQL supports all the features of Semarchy xDM to manage, browse or author your data in all your environments: development, test or even production.

Filtering Child and Embedded Collections

All data collections, including child transition as well as embedded collections, can now be filtered. Designers can select for each of these collections the search methods available: built-in forms, full-text, advanced, SemQL, or user-defined search forms.
Anywhere business users can browse a list of records, they can also search and filter this list.

Table-Based Duplicates Management

Data stewards used to work with the graph to manage the duplicates and suggestions in Semarchy xDM can now use an alternate table view to handle larger and more complex duplicate groups and suggestions. This new view supports additional features such as filtering, sorting and columns selection, to accelerate the duplicates management decision-making process.

Other Changes

  • A new Date datatype replaces DateTime to manage date-only values.

  • Improved UI for the Date Picker component used to configure dates in applications or to author date and timestamp fields.

  • A new Markdown Component is available for String and LongText attributes to display and author (with preview) attributes containing rich-text content.

  • Improved tooltips on table cells when browsing collections.

  • A new ViewType SemQL attribute returns the current view being manipulated (GD, MD, etc).

  • A new List View is available to browse large Application Folders.

  • A new quick search bar appears on application folders to filter large folder contents.

  • Built-in Search Form improvements: Search fields are reorganized and grouped, and a quick search bar allows filtering these search fields.

  • Value from the User Profile are now available as V_USER_* variables in SemQL.

  • Continuous Loads can be named and addressed by their name to make integration flows independent from the deployment environment.

  • Mass-update now supports reference selection using the reference selection dialog in addition to the autocomplete.

Change Log
