Decision Management

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

This release contains a number of fixes that improve the configuration and execution of Batch decisions – specifically, a number of usability improvements and addresses some issues when creating strategies on IE8.  

  • Batch Decision functionality has been enhanced in the NBAM environment.
  • In NBAM, users can run the strategy execution batch based on the Seed list class instead of the customer class. 
  • Interaction data will now work even if Action or Organization  dimensions do not have values set.
  • Running a strategy which includes a Data Import of a structured page reference will work in batch mode.
  • Security was enhanced on the VBD Planner.
  • The Access of Role to Object rules have been enhanced to allow users to create new Dimension Operator records.
  • The NBAM Segment On Canvas will now fetch the SegMap data, even when the generated extended segment class has not been added to the Pages and Classes of the strategy.  The SegMap property will (if it exists) be added to a list of properties to fetch, even if the strategy indicates that it is not used.
  • When a strategy is defined on a customer class, users may now specify the list of required properties to fetch for the input definition.
  • When creating a new strategy, there is now a section to add a Strategy Results class like Business Issue or Group.

Reporting & Data

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

This release fixed many existing unlocalizable elements in 7.1 reporting interfaces (The Report Viewer, Report Editor, Chart Editor, and the Report Browser) and now they are fully localizable. Changes were made to make Listview, summaryview,  and report viewer display possible WCAG 2.0 level A and AA support.

  • Parameters may now be used in a sub-report join condition.
  • Report Definition localization has been enhanced.
  • Standalone ListViews with embedded SmartInfo have been improved to resize appropriately when the SmartInfo section is expanded.
  • The data section of a report will now display in all of the available space when a fixed header option is selected.
  • When localizing a listview with filters, tool tips are translated.

Customize your report headers

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can customize the way that the header for all of an application's reports will be displayed by overriding the section pyReportEditorHeader. Save a copy of this section into the application's ruleset, then edit it to display the information, images, and layout that you desire. Once changes are saved, each of your application's reports will automatically use the updated header.

Advanced inline report filters

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can create a custom section and use it to display report filter controls at the top of the report, replacing the default display. The custom section can include basic controls (such as a drop-down menu or text entry field), and the controls can only provide values for the filter functions established in the Edit filters section of the Query tab for the Report Definition.

Application overlays are enhanced to include more rules types that business users can change through the Decision Manager portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Revision management overlays have been extended to include additional rule types (decision tree, and map value), enhancing the extent to which business users can review and change the logic used in strategies. For more information on this new feature, see the Revision Management landing page.

Direct deployment of decision parameters

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Direct deployment overlays now enable business users to own decision parameters. Revisions based on this new type of overlay can be directly activated by Decision Manager portal users. For more information on this feature, see the Revision Management landing page.

Predictive Analytics Director portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Predictive Analytics Director (PAD) has been integrated into Pega7, allowing you to develop and generate predictive models that can be used in strategies and process flows. The following new rulesets have been added to PegaDM to support this functionality: PredictiveAnalytics-IntSvcs, and PredictiveAnalytics-UI. For more information on rules using models generated by the Predictive Analytics Director portal, see About Predictive Model rules.

Third party models integration made possible by directly importing PMML in predictive models

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Predictive models can now import models in PMML format. The PMML integration in predictive models allows you to use third party models without extra conversion and configuration. For more information on this new feature, see About Predictive Model rules.

Improved adaptive model accuracy

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Enhancements have been made in the grouping scores method that is used to create the adaptive model outcome profile (also known as: classifier). Because scores form the base for calculating propensities, these changes make models more accurate. The enhanced grouping scores method is available with any new model generated in Pega 7.1.7 and does not require any changes to existing adaptive model rules or adaptive model components. For more information on adaptive models, see About Adaptive Model rules.

In-memory Adaptive Analytics Manager process

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The new internal Adaptive Analytics Manager (ADM) process running in PRPC makes it possible to use adaptive analytics without the availability of the external ADM server. Although not a replacement for the external ADM server, it streamlines the design and development of applications making use of adaptive analytics. For more information on the configuration that allows your application to use the internal ADM process, see the Infrastructure Services landing page.
