Informer 5.1.2 Release Provides Unparalleled Querying Efficiency for Dataset Management

Raleigh, NC – February 4th, 2020 – Entrinsik, Inc. (, the leader in intuitive business intelligence, today announced the general availability of 5.1.2 to the Informer platform which unlocks a bundling module that will foster better sharing and accelerate the spread of best practices for data throughout the organization. By eliminating the requirement for complex IT support and expertise, Informer users with proper credentials can now quickly and easily share Reports, Datasources, Jobs, Users and Teams with colleagues or partners.

5.1.2 brings bundling to the Informer platform for quick import and export of any or all components from the Informer system. The release also provides new improvements for better data visualization, management and security.

“Over the past decade, we have built an incredible foundation as a leading business intelligence solution, connecting thousands of people with insights from their data to make informed decisions that solve business problems. Working with our customers we were able to transform how they scale their business, allowing data driven decisions to reach more people, while maintaining an intuitive experience for our users,” said Doug Leupen, Founder and CEO of Entrinsik. “Promoting collaboration through bundling will accelerate the pace of adoption and lead to better outcomes for our customers.”

Making Data Insights Sharable

As organizations look to become more data driven, they are stymied when it comes to scaling to new departments, as installation, implementation and replication of new instances can be labor and time intensive. The new bundling feature with Informer addresses this issue by providing users a consistent, easy way to share instances. A replication that used to take days can now be completed in minutes.

Easy Deployment Across Multi-Tenancy

One of the greatest assets of Informer bundling is the ability to quickly and easily update multiple contexts of a single multi-tenant Informer environment. Partners can disseminate gold standard content or share best practices from individual Users to the entire ecosystem, providing continuous improvement for all.

Query Large Datasets Without All the Latency

Outside of Informer, queries can take hours or even days to process millions or billions of records, but using Informer Datasets allows organizations to curate the exact desired data with its respective governance rules, work flows, and calculations, which are indexed into Elasticsearch for quick sorting and filtering. With the options of Append and Upsert, Informer will only add the new and updated records. This is particularly useful for larger organizations needing near real-time Reports on millions of transactions. A user can set Informer to refresh a Dataset periodically throughout the day and only add new or modify changed records. The new options present as follows:

  • Replace – remove all records and replace them with the new query results.
  • Append – add new records.
  • Upsert – add new records, update existing records while never removing old records.

Additional new features and capabilities from Informer 5.1.2 include:

  • User Defined Fields – Providing a flexible data sharing design that allows you to show different data sets to different sets of Users. Managers can now create a master Report, with individuals only seeing the data that is relevant to their role.
  • Private Filters – When you work with filters saved to a private folder, you can run Reports with confidence. No one else has access to the filters, so you’re the only one responsible for changes.
  • SQL Savelists – Enable Savelists for customers that moved from U2 to SQL.

Other features and improvements, including enhancements to Pivot Tables, and the ability to apply selection criteria to normalized values and bug fixes across the system can be found in the release notes on the Informer Help Center.
