We are excited to announce the V0.7.0 beta going live for IBM Db2- Augmented Data Explorer.
In this release, we have focused on making it more secure and scalable, based on feedback from our enterprise customers.
With Augmented Data Explorer V0.7 we have focused on improving the following features:
User login and Access permissions
Every user has to login with a username and password to access ADE.
There are three levels of permissions that a user can have:
- Search- This is the default level of permission assigned. Users with permission are only allowed to search already crawled data.
- Setup and Edit data- Users with this permission can add new data sources, edit data sources and crawl new connections
- Admin- The admin user can add new users, integrate with an LDAP server and control the levels of permission other users are assigned.
2. Scalability and Performance
Dynamic task scheduling and parallel computing
This feature has a huge impact on the performance and allows users to explore large amounts of data at a fast pace. Users can also monitor the performance of the backend with the DASK dashboard, as they go about creating new connections and exploring the data. They can see how tasks are split among the workers and the time taken to execute the tasks.
To view the dashboard, open a new tab on your browser and type- http://hostname_of_server:8787/status
We have switched to a server-side computing model, allowing multiple users to access the same server. Users can access the server through a web browser and log in with a username and password or use the REST API to embed the search results and insights in an application.
Crawl data from multiple sources
Users can now crawl data from multiple data sources at once and manage those connections effectively with the new and improved Configuration tab. The new connection management tab allows users to see the number of schemas and tables selected, and also see the progress of the crawl with the status bar.
With improved caching and forecasting capabilities, the new version of ADE comes with improved NLG and more granular searches and forecasting capabilities. We have also tested the accuracy of our search results by comparing our results with that of a statistical tool.
