Introducing NetVisn 7!


Netvisn7Envisn is pleased to announce the release of NetVisn 7. The major theme of this new version is making it easier to manage change. Our goal has been to address routine tasks that administrators and developers face on a daily basis and significantly reduce the amount of time, effort and risk involved.

The major things that are part of this new release include:

  • New Security Editor in NetVisn 7 makes managing security a breeze. The drag-and-drop feature significantly reduces the number of steps required to manage accounts, groups and roles. The number of steps required to add a new user is reduced from 10 or more steps to only 2. And this new feature is really a big deal because it also works as an editor for distribution lists making what is currently a challenging task in Cognos almost fun with NetVisn. We know you will really like it.
  • Mass Specification Change with its fast find and replace capability instantly updates specifications for all Cognos studios. Whether you have a few changes to make or thousands NetVisn can handle them all.
  • Model Item Change feature performs multiple model item renames at once. Makes it easy to handle major changes to Framework Manager models that have undergone reengineering.

Our work on simplifying the process of managing change within Cognos continues and over the next few months we will be releasing more new features for NetVisn that address this subject area.

Let us know when you’re ready to make the move to NetVisn 7. Simply send an email to: support@envisn.com It’s a simple upgrade that will take only minutes to install.
