Time flies! This time we present a summary of three months full of events, software releases, and developments from Cubewise.

Conferences

A lot of clients joined us in Paris and Hongkong to learn all about the latest developments in the TM1 and Planning Analytics market, get an update on tips and tricks and network with fellow TM1 friends. In case you did not have a chance joining us, we have captured the highlights in a couple of videos on our YouTube channel.

Cubewise CODE and other tools

ARC for TM1

ARC for TM1 got an update in March and April respectively. A major milestone was the support of more languages. In addition to English, you can now run Arc in German, Spanish, and French. On the technical side, the rules tracer is a big improvement, helping better understanding rule results and finding issues in your model. With the latest version 1.4.2, the Cubewise Code team also implemented a better interface for the TM1 loggers, plus fixed a number of smaller issues reported by the users.

Canvas for TM1

March was a busy month for the CODE team, releasing also a new version of Canvas. Version 3.2.0 brings support of OpenID authentication and supports the rules tracer from the latest PA versions.

Bedrock 4

Rewritten from the ground up to support the latest features of Planning Analytics, Bedrock version 4 was released! This is a major development and comes with a number of fundamental changes. Processes use the TM1 logger instead of log files, views and subsets are temporary by default and most important, v4 supports the new TM1 hierarchies.
