We hope you had a joyful holiday season and ready to start a new productive year full of new challenges and avenues.
Our team has also prepared an ambitious plan for this year.
We will present new features that will hugely extend the opportunities of those who already use a pivot table and provide these opportunities to those who always wanted to use Flexmonster but was tied with some tech-specifics.
We’re happy to present our roadmap for two upcoming releases we’ve planned for 2020. But don’t forget that we are constantly working on our product and you can always find some extra features in our minor releases that we publish fortnightly.
Here’s what we bring to the table:
Our own API providing an ability to fetch already aggregated data from any server to Flexmonster Pivot. You can test this feature right away in our beta version.
Using our new custom data source API, we’re going to prepare a ready-to-use connector for the MongoDB database to extremely ease the connection process.
Flexmonster Pivot will be available for Python-based applications. This also applies to Jupyter Notebook.
Our pivot table will be available for R-powered web applications with Shiny.
A new ready-to-use wrapper for smooth integration with the Vue.js framework. Following simple steps from the documentation, you’ll effortlessly add the reporting functionality to your Vue app.
Тhe new mapping approach enables defining how the fields are represented and structured inside the component. It will be further improved in future releases.
Starting from 2.8, you will be able to get the aggregated data from the server with the help of a new custom data source API.
In a 2.9 version, we will release a server-side tool (based on this custom API) that will totally change the way of loading your data into Flexmonster Pivot.
In the 2.9 version, we’re also planning to shift the focus to a server-side part for our pivot by releasing a new server-side tool called Flexmonster Data Server. This tool will exchange data with Flexmonster Pivot with the help of custom data source API.
It will also contain connectors for different data sources and help unify the connection and data transfer proсess.
Flexmonster Data Server is coming with other notable features:
As a part of Flexmonster Data Server, we will add new connectors for different data sources:
Well, we are challenged a lot this year with our plan and very motivated to live it out for you.
Keep an eye out – we are going to announce the new release soon!
