Completely Revised DMN 1.1 Support with Simulation
Enable and increase your company’s digital transformation by automating decisions within business processes. Innovator 14.1 now fully supports DMN Version 1.1 in Conformance Level 3. Use the full power and strength of expression provided by DMN to evaluate even the most complex of operational issues and add them to your processes as automated decisions. Tap your existing data mining and machine learning knowledge by combining predictive model markup language (PMML) functions. Simulate your decisions, even while you are modeling, to obtain even better results, faster.
Model Data Import and Export with Microsoft Excel
Benefit from existing information through simple and efficient data exchange with other people or systems. Use the new Excel Export feature to provide any model information in a structured form and even adopt changes in the model using Excel import. Excel Import allows you to easily create multiple model elements at the same time, e.g. as initial data import from a system involved. The import dialog will guide you through how to adopt your data into the correct element types and properties and will let you know of any possible issues that may occur before the import is carried out.
Improved Version Management and Remote Management
Modelers in your team can now use the client in Innovator 14.1 to create and manage new model versions themselves. As administrator or application manager, you can use the user administration to assign the necessary rights and set resource limits to ensure smooth operation. The administration program has many new ways to quickly and efficiently manage Innovator models without needing to log-in to the server computer locally. Another new feature is the option of assigning multiple extra symbolic names that can be used in links. For example, you can release links that will remain valid even if the original model version has changed.
Enterprise Architecture Modeling now with ArchiMate 3.1
Innovator 14.1 supports the latest ArchiMate 3.1 modeling standard. You can use it to depict your company’s value chain. You can now also profit from an integrated import and export for standard-compliant ArchiMate-XML documents. There have been several improvements made to details, such as mapping relationships to relationships. This enables you to map your company’s architecture precisely and efficiently in Innovator.
Systems Engineering with SysML
You can now use Innovator’s renowned capabilities to analyze and design your complex technical systems using SysML 1.5. Describe your system modules’ composition and structure using block definition diagrams and internal block diagrams. Specifically illustrate complex flows using sequence diagrams or state machines. Add textual requirements to provide a complete model of your system that is always complete and consistent for system development, test or documentation.
