This release in particular features some new “In-memory Cache” technology which can be used to report at speed across very large volumes of data, so reports will run much quicker than previously, along with a number of other Aqilla enhancements to support widescreen displays etc.
The new Query In-memory Cache option minimises the query interchange between the Excel workbook and the Aqilla server and reduces the chance that the same query is refreshed multiple times in the same recalculation run. In other words unless it is expressly required to do so, SharperLight will report against a set of data held in the computer’s local memory rather than constantly going back to the server and downloading what could be a large of volume of data to deliver the results to Excel.
The Aqilla API (Application Programming Interface) has also been extended to provide access to Fixed Assets reference data by and via the RESTful interface. In other words this allows for other 3rd party systems (once authenticated) to on demand, automatically create new asset records as well as being able to query and update existing ones.
Other enhancements include the ability for various views throughout Aqilla to switch into a wide screen view to make better use of commonly found wider 16:9 format screens, proper handling of browser "back buttons" and enhancements to debtor statementing and payments processes.
