The wait is nearly over for a significantly new WinSPC.
The much-anticipated WinSPC Version 9 release is coming soon. Version 9 reflects an unprecedented effort to touch every aspect of the product in order to improve its ability to solve your problems, become easier to use and easier to own. Let’s highlight some of the great new enhancements that you will experience when you upgrade to WinSPC Version 9.
A Contemporary New Look
WinSPC V9 has a completely updated look and feel. Actions have been standardized and behaviors simplified throughout. Users gain more control over their workspace with an interface that is new, yet still familiar. The result is more than a fresh look but a more productive and consistent experience for a variety of tasks, regardless of the context or platform.
New Dashboard Visualizations
Version 9 introduces a new Dashboard mode as a completely new framework for integrating disparate status items into a single view. Dashboards combine the filtering power of data sets with brand new visual elements, permitting end users to build an endless variety of views. These can be used to supplement other analysis tools within WinSPC or assigned to dedicated stations to create a hands-free “big board” status system. As the new foundation for sharing data and status, look for Dashboard functionality to expand the ways you are able to integrate important stakeholders and display timely production status events wherever needed.
New Attribute Data Sets, Analysis & Reporting
Version 9 brings attribute data into focus and enhances how attributes can be analyzed and viewed throughout the product. The WinSPC V9 Attribute Analyzer delivers the power of the analysis engine, with its filter builder and data sets, enhanced for attribute users. Filter your attribute content and then feed these data sets into analysis and visualization tools optimized for attributes. Analysis is most valuable when you can share it, so the Report Designer has eight new data views to showcase attributes within your reports.
New Archiving Capability
A completely new server-side archiving engine permits sophisticated data management and retention plan automation. Archives can be created instantly or scheduled. Destinations now include real databases accessed directly from the administrator tree. Archive databases can be accessed from within WinSPC to create datasets for analysis, to recreate customer reports or to revisit retired production projects.
Microsoft Active Directory Integration
WinSPC V9 now permits integration of its user management with the local Microsoft Active Directory domain to permit unified user management and the benefits of single-sign-on. Users can be existing domain users, WinSPC administered users or both. This can significantly reduce the overhead of administering and securing workstations as well as aid compliance with existing corporate security policies.
Integration with Microsoft Windows Security and Database Platforms
Microsoft has been hard at work consolidating, improving and revising its platforms and security models. WinSPC Version 9 has a completely new installation model and has been certified to track with these changes to simplify your installation, maintenance and upgrades. Version 9 includes integration with User Access Control and follows installation best practices for platforms like Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services. Likewise MS-SQL 2012 and Oracle 11g are fully tested and supported on Version 9.
Expanded Device File Integration Handling
Often the best integration of two systems is simply a file and WinSPC V9 has expanded its handling of files containing configuration information and data to make interoperability even more seamless than ever. Document interchange that was once only possible through programmatic exchange can now be configured visually.
New Visual Tools for Localization and Customization
The WinSPC team knows first hand how challenging it can be to add or modify localization content for each of your languages and or specialized site terminology. WinSPC V9 contains a new visual tool that facilitates interface localization and language string editing with full screen preview, thus minimizing the costs and cycles required to achieve the user experience you seek.
