    Yellowfin the leading embeddable BI solution for web based reporting
    is very excited to announce the content for the upcoming release 4.0,
    scheduled for release mid year 2008.

    Why go from 3.3 to 4.0? Well this is a huge release with significant
    changes to most of the Yellowfin application - including new schema
    design that will support our development plan for the next 2 years.
    Optimised query generation, much easier and more flexible view
    creation and analytical dashboards are just some of the highlights of
    this release.

    As usual we have had a lot of help in coming up with the key
    development initiatives. Thankyou to everyone who took part in the
    Beacon survey, earlier this year. As well as to those that gave us
    great ideas over the past six months or so. Your feedback continues
    to be critical to driving our innovation.

    The major changes in this release include:

    Analytic Dashboards

    The ability to link multiple reports together on a dashboard tab
    whereby when you interact with one (say drill down on region) the
    associated reports are all filtered by the same region selected. You
    will also be able to add standard report portlets to KPI tabs. This
    new level of interaction will provide end users with greater insight
    into their data.

    Map and Image Charts

    Improving data visualisation is one of the goals of Yellowfin. With
    4.0 you will be able to link your data to maps or images (eg a floor
    plan) and apply bubble charts or heat maps to them. So region based
    reporting will become far more interactive and visually appealing.

    Optimised Query Generation

    For reports built on Yellowfin views changes to the SQL generation
    will be optimised so that only joins and tables relevant to the query
    will be used within a report. All redundant joins will be dropped.
    This means that queries will run faster by being more efficient.

    Enhanced View Builder

    One of the areas in which we have received significant feedback is the
    Yellowfin view builder. Release 4.0 greatly enhances the
    functionality of the process but more importantly has vastly improved
    the interface. This really sets the benchmark for meta-data design!

    Formatting and Report Functionality

    Not to be forgotten the report out put process will also be improved
    with a host of changes that add functionality and visual appeal - with
    out adding additional complexity to the interface.

    These are only some of the changes for 4.0. Stayed tuned as we
    approach our release to hear more about what is in store.

    This release builds on the fantastic achievements of 3.3. Our focus
    continues to be on improving data visualisation (without sacrificing
    ease of use) and assisting our OEM partners to deliver excellence in
    embedded BI solutions. We are very excited about the functionality
    that is to be delivered in this release.
