What about our product?


Opensee’s Product Management and Developers have been working hard in the last few months to improve Opensee Enterprise’s and its user experience (UX):


| Front End

We have started to demo our beta Web UI. And to help guide additional functionalities and refine the UX, we’ll be arranging dedicated group discussions with our existing clients.


| Back End

A few examples among dozens of developments to improve our clients’ experience: for ingestion APIs, branches (Opensee’s approach to data versioning) are the only info needed, as an alternative to more complex calls involving commit IDs.

The use of vectors, a key feature of Opensee’s lightning performances, has been optimized through new JOINs for vectorised tables.

Also, the range of data type transferable to Python has been extended as well as the ‘filtering’/’group by’ feature, enhancing calculator performance and useability.
