convenient.

V2.4

Exciting changes in the latest Yellowfin BI version are set to make the
users experience simpler yet more powerful.

Announcing the release of Yellowfin R2.4. The changes in this release
significantly enhance our BI and Information Collaboration capability.
The needs of business users continues to drive our development
philosophy and with R2.4 Yellowfin delivers even greater business
advantage through easy to use yet powerful Business Intelligence tools.

Major Enhancements

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.

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.

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.

Enhancements

Improved Calculated Columns within the View Builder
Improved Charting - formatting, drill through and meter charts.
Report Caching - improving the performance of report delivery
Grouped Variables - create brackets such as age bands etc
Web Services - access reports from 3rd part applications
