Foundation v11.1 series: Getting Ready for SAPPHIRE NOW

By Jim Barker on Apr 19, 2016

You may have seen my blogs on various data governance topics, but this is my first product blog series related to my day job at Winshuttle.  Over the past year, I’ve been involved in product development efforts leading up to the launch of our Foundation v11.1 product at SAP’s SAPPHIRE NOW conference.

These are exciting times at Winshuttle, with the recent release of our Studio v11 desktop product and now Foundation v11.1 on the horizon.  In this blog series, I will share how this new offering will help you achieve better data with less effort to propel your business forward. Foundation v11

Over the next few weeks I will write posts on several things to look forward to in this latest product release including:

  • Excel Workflow
  • SmartTable
  • Dashboards
  • UI Improvements
  • Data Governance capabilities
  • Composer performance features
  • Encryption
  • Support Information
  • Foundation’s time-to-value

I will describe how Excel based workflow can help you correct data quickly with orchestrated workflow and strong governance.  I will also illustrate how our new dashboard capability can help you manage data stewardship tasks and monitor workload.

I look forward to sharing the fruits of a collection of top-notch engineers and unified global effort that allowed this product to come together at Winshuttle.
