Today we proudly deliver our third software release of the year, version 4.3.0, which is now available for our customers to download through Microsoft Azure Marketplace and AWS. We are incredibly excited about the new features in this release as they focus on improving customer experience. The team at Exonar have worked really hard to simplify the complexity of our software into an experience which is as intuitive and seamless for our platform users as possible.
Taking centre-stage in version 4.3.0 are the introduction of dynamic tutorials. As users come and go within roles within the organisation, it’s important that individuals can adopt technology quickly without extensive training in advance. These interactive tutorials lend a helping hand to new and existing users of the platform by taking users on a step-by-step learning experience, as if a trainer was sitting beside them. We’ve included ten initial tutorials with this release, covering a a range of key tasks and activities a user might look to complete. It is likely we will add additional tutorials in future, and we even envisage customised tutorial flows for specific needs of individual customers.
These add a personal touch to our product and ensure our customers are equipped to protect and power their data in the best possible way.
Also receiving a makeover in version 4.3.0 is our platform homepage, which has been redesigned to take users from insight to action in three logical steps. Users can quickly Find the specific information they need from a mountain of data, Visualise this data to gain valuable insight, and finally Automate searches with workflows to see changes to your data quicker.
In addition to these new features, we’ve also made other enhancements to our product, fixed a few bugs, and logged some known issues, all of which can be viewed in our 4.3.0 Release Update Document. We now invite all of our customers to plan their upgrade by contacting our Support Team or Head of Customer Success, using the normal channels.
Our next release is planned for Q4 2020 and will include the launch of our public API and updated data source connectors to operate with our latest crawler technology.
Today we’re excited to deliver and make available our latest software release, version 4.2.0, to customers, with download also available through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and AWS from the end of this week.
This release is all about updating and improving our connectivity into Microsoft 365, the world’s most widely deployed employee productivity software, used by the majority of medium and large Enterprises. Having already released an improved Exchange 365 connector the uses the Microsoft Graph API, this release adds new and improved connectors for SharePoint 365 and OneDrive for Business too. This version also contains a number of other minor feature enhancements and improvements.

The strategy plots our route to retain our world-leading position in data discovery at scale; driving deeper customer value within the product; and integrating with third party technologies to form broader solutions to data-related challenges faced by organisations across the globe.

This is just one of many improvements in an increasingly exciting product roadmap, with some big and exciting news coming in the next few months”.
