Roadmap

SECOND  SEMESTER 2017 - version 2.5

As most important news, 2.5 release is going to include application "clustering" at server side.

This new feature will allow you to have more CMDBuild active instances running in parallel on different Tomcat systems and present on different servers.

This will ensure the overall operation of the system even in case of failure of one of the Tomcat instances used, resolving the only effective "single point failure" currently present.

Moreover, during the normal use of CMDBuild, will allow to distribute the workload across multiple servers, in case of a high number of concurrent accesses, making the solution "scalable", with no limitations other than the number of available servers. To the server scalability, will be also added a more efficient use of the database.

It is already possible to configure multiple instances of PostgreSQL in master-slave mode, "promoting" manually or automatically one "slave" to "master" in case of failure. A further step included in the ongoing developments, will be the use of the "slave" PostgreSQL instances to perform the read-only operations, thereby distributing the work among all the available databases.

 

2018 -  Version 3.0

The Tecnoteca designers are already working to the specific requirements that the new version of CMDBuild will have, and that will bring the project to the next decade.

This is not just a simple user interface revision. All the "client" code will in fact be completely rewritten, with the aim of the re-use of some parts with the "Mobile interface" and the Self-Service portal based on GUI Framework.

The performance aspect will be increasingly important, to ensure the best use for the operators.

The graphical aspect will follow the latest trends of web design, based on a minimalist interface, but at the same time able to have always available all the options and the most useful information for the specific context.

Completely new features will also be made available, features that we are currently considering includes contextual menus, dynamic validations during data entry, a greater integration between textual data and GIS representations and the relation graph, push notifications, a “time slider” to see the CMDB situation at past dates, etc.

Moreover the configuration mechanisms available for expert users will be extended, including the possibility to completely customize forms and widgets, the possibility to define triggers pre-and post-view of the form, the possibility to use Java APIs in the workflows, etc.

 

 

The roadmap is purely indicative, and may change depending on managers decisions and customer requests.
