Organization Setup superseded by New Application Wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Updated Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Starting in this release, Pega 7 features that integrate with the Word merge capability are now cross-browser. ActiveX controls (which are only compatible with Internet Explorer) have been replaced with Microsoft Silverlight. This plug-in must be downloaded separately from Microsoft because it is not shipped with Pega 7.

Common features that are affected by this change include the Specification form and Case Type landing page.

Prior to using these features, see the release note Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for more information about setting up their client systems.

Real-time event processing

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

Real-time event processing is a mechanism that can be used to analyze a high velocity stream of events entering the system and derive conclusions from them. It is possible to define metrics, measurements, and conditions under which subsequent trigger events are generated.

For details, see Real-time event processing.

Text analytics on the Pega 7 Platform

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The Pega 7 Platform offers users the capability to analyze units of text, extract quality information, and translate it into business intelligence. The text analytics functionality aims to determine the positive, negative, and neutral polarities (tone) of subjective sentences. It also provides mechanisms for categorizing units of text and classifying text elements into predefined categories. You can use it to analyze text-based content including news feeds, emails, and postings on social media streams, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

For more information, see Introduction to text analytics on the Pega 7 Platform.

Updates to the Data Flow rule

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

It is now possible to use report definitions as primary and secondary sources in the Data Flow rule. The data flows that are sourced by a report definition can be distributed on multiple nodes. When using a database table data set as the destination of the data flow, you need to select one of the save options for the data set (insert records or insert and update records).

Updates to the Event Strategy rule

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

When you design event strategies, you can use the Filter shape for basic arithmetic and text expressions. You can also specify start conditions for the tumbling and sliding windows.

Enabling historical compliance score data

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

Project stakeholders can now track the compliance score for an application over time to better understand and manage ongoing development adherence to Pega 7 Platform guardrails. The compliance score history can be displayed on a line graph on the Compliance Score tab of the Application Guardrails landing page. The data is collected daily and displayed in weekly increments, up to four weeks prior to the current date.

For more information, see Guardrails compliance score, Enabling compliance score history, and Compliance score trend reporting.

Updates to the Predictive Model rule form

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The Predictive Model rule form provides the XML schema preview for uploaded PMML models. You can use this preview to view the structure of a model and to correct errors before saving the rule. When the model contains errors, they are displayed in the Errors section at the bottom of the rule.
