MooD 17's release marks a major step towards modernising and future proofing the MooD Software platform.
The world around us is evolving at an unprecedented pace, and there is a clear demand for technologies to keep up with modern expectations. It has never been more important for MooD to take the time it needed to build the foundations to become more agile.
After 18 months of meticulous research and development, the Software Team is proud to deliver their vision for this major release:
What problems did MooD 17 look to solve?
- The current charts library looks out of date, out-of-the-box, and requires a lot of time to make them look nice
- Charts are not intuitive to configure and require a lot of upfront work, as well as further configuration to make them present in a way that is meaningful
- Business Architect is very difficult to learn how to use, and it takes a lot of time and effort to train a new user
- Users often do not know how to exploit MooD's powerful functionality
- MooD can become another data silo, as sometimes it requires human intervention or manipulation of data between MooD and other customer systems
- We currently have no automated vulnerability detection, or code quality analysis; meaning a lot of Developer time spent on manual inspection.
- Development and testing processes are slowed down by support of older technologies and functionality within the product, which slows down the implementation of new or improved features
Who will the above impact?
- Our customers and users;
- time taken to get started and/or to maintain solutions will be greatly reduced, therefore enjoying the benefits earlier
- users will find more power in MooD if it is more intuitive to use, therefore increasing value and benefits overall
- in the future customers can expect more efficient deployments and upgrades, packed with more value
- customers can be more confident in the security and robustness of the MooD software
- The Software Development team
- can better predict the impact of change and the effort required when developing new/existing features
- can improve the efficiency of development processes by reducing manual effort and impact analysis with less code to consider
You will find articles on all of the improvements made in this release; we suggest you at least read the article on the new charts library and the article on the new settings pane, so that you can familiarise yourself with the main changes in the product.
We hope you are as pleased as we are with the steps taken to improve the user experience and modernise the product.
Please feel free to reach out to the Support team should you require any guidance on the changes in this release.
