This release contains major new UI enhancements as well as Task management improvements and bug fixes.
Following are the highlights of this release:
New task management capabilities in Data Director to make it easier and quicker than ever before for data stewards to action their task list.
The Entity360 page can now be used to create and edit records, giving all users a friendly interface for managing data content. This includes support for new field types such as a date picker and picklist, and it also includes field validation messages and different display options for read only fields and mandatory fields
Major architectural improvements led to 4x 6x increase in UI rendering and response speeds in IDD. Combining this with improved User Experience in Entity 360 driven UIs, IDD becomes a universal Master Data Management tool suitable for both Data Stewards and Business Users.
There no longer is a need for maintain user list and role assignment separately between MDE and Integrated Informatica BPM, role resolution and authorization are now seamless.
Smart Search now natively supports queries in Chinese, Japanese and Korean providing relevant and accurate results for faster discovery of relevant Master Data across multiple types of Business Entities managed.
Retrieving up-to-date and accurate Master Data is now much faster and easier with substantial improvements made to Smart Search querying and indexing areas.
Workflows can now be started and processed using externally available REST and SOAP Composite Object Services as well as Entity 360 based User Interfaces.
Dual Workflow Engine Support makes it easier to transition from legacy workflow engines to native MDE Informatica BPM integration.
With introduction of SOAP support in Composite Services, addition of Composite Services allowing to cover Merge/Unmerge operations as well as operations on Pending records, it becomes even easier to align the MDE integration plans with preexisting infrastructure policies.
Trillium v15 and Flash 18 are supported with this release of v10.
