XactTime Software Product Updates

Current version: 6.511.45

Deployed: 8/3/2019

6.511.45 (Deployed 8/3/2019)

  • Integration of new layout engine and control composition frameworks to allow for future UX enhancements
    • Real-time responsive and scalable icons have been introduced for faster page loading and adaptability to modern browser viewports
    • Most on-screen common functionality controls (calendars, pagers, etc.) on administration screens have been replaced with modernized, commonly themed controls completely re-written from the ground up
    • Real-time feedback is being introduced in select functions such as the customer creation screen that allows the user to monitor progress for long-running tasks
    • All web components are now fully patched to each component’s latest versions, reducing security risks and enhancing compatibility with the latest browsers and web standards

Core product enhancements optimize performance for modern hardware, computing environments, and user trends

  • Core product functions have been fully converted to the Microsoft .NET 4.6.1 framework which allows embracing of modern architectures and software standards such as machine learning and future AI enhancements
    • Shift away from hardware-based licensing to software-based licensing allows XactTime to operate in the cloud and virtualized environments without a gateway system that links the cloud to the local network where a machine must be present with a hardware key
    • Streaming data enhancements to the core libraries allow XactTime to stream data from the database servers instead of loading full datasets which vastly improves performance and lowers the memory footprint and overhead
    • Provider-based database enhancements utilize the latest optimizations by using Microsoft data access libraries that compile provider-aware dynamic SQL queries instead of long-form and product dependent queries
    • Enhancements that enable automatic scaling for multi-core processor packages, taking advantage of modern CPU architecture by distributing work over multiple processor cores instead of residing on a single processing core, making simultaneous user sessions more responsive and less prone to crashes
    • All-new caching system enables often used but seldom changed data to reside in memory instead of being recalled from the database
    • All system components are now fully patched to each component’s latest versions, reducing security risks and enhancing performance with the latest computing standards
