What’s new in BOXARR 7.0?
New sign-in and security of the modern enterprise
We have re-architected our back end and clients to facilitate modern single-sign-on procedures. Our new system can support a range of authentication mechanisms to ensure that logging into BOXARR is both easy and secure within your enterprise. Our new Docker architecture has the added benefit of being much simpler to install and update.
Improved navigation through nSight dashboards
Our browser-based client continues to improve, including lots of tweaks and refinements in this release that you will notice in better usability. These include a new ability to navigate between any number of full-screen widgets so that you can quickly get a custom window into a BOXARR model and browse through multiple widget views to gain actionable insight.
Easy to Filter in nSight
Another refinement that will stand out is the improvements to the user filter in the browser. Filtering is what allows you to drill down into a BOXARR model and focus on those things that are affecting your organization and its KPIs. nSight now includes a sophisticated filter bar that allows you to see precisely what you’ve filtered to, and modify that filter with ease. More usable filtering is what makes human-readable complexity possible.
New and refined charting widgets
Every release of BOXARR includes refinements to the nSight dashboard widgets, and you will notice all of them keep getting slicker. A notable new element in version 7.0 is a “doughnut chart” widget that allows you to get a comparative understanding of any data in your model.
Easier user management
BOXARR is an enterprise tool, meant to enable many users across your organization to understand complex challenges. As such, adding and managing user access is vital. BOXARR 7.0 features a refined workflow for that adding of users that will make managing hundreds or even thousands of users far easier.
Exciting preliminary developments in BOXARR 7.0
BOXARR 7.0 also features first looks at several revolutionary developments that we will be rapidly refining in coming releases:
Network editing in the browser
7.0 is the first release where it is possible not just to create dashboards of underlying BOXARR interdependency models, but to edit those models (something that was previously only possible through the nVision client). Expect this capability to be refined towards full in-browser editing the near future!
Management of model folder structure in the browser
Users who have worked with nVision will know that to organize the multiple models in BOXARR, it is possible to create folders and sub-folders of those models. This release brings the capability of managing those folders into nSight.
“User layer” editing
Along with these new edit-in-the-browser capabilities comes the ability to edit your own, personal version of the model (a “user layer”) that doesn’t interfere with the baseline model being used by other users until you want to merge that layer back, under careful security control. This capability makes exploring what-ifs even more powerful.
Upgrade to BOXARR 7.0
BOXARR customers with active subscriptions will be able to upgrade to BOXARR 7.0 from June 2020. We encourage all our customers to upgrade their platform at the earliest opportunity, so users can take advantage of the new enhancements and features. If you would like to discuss your upgrade, please speak to your BOXARR Account Manager, or contact us directly.
