The New Xplenty

The New Xplenty

Benjamin Franklin once said: “Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”

Since our launch in 2012, Xplenty has worked hard to achieve this kind of continuous growth and progress, and we’ve made great strides. We have helped thousands of users - including Fortune 500 companies and small-to-medium-sized businesses in a variety of industries - organize their data and prepare it for insights. Our users have run countless jobs on Xplenty, and our platform has helped them streamline their data and ultimately improve their long-term strategies.

Now, Xplenty is getting even better with a brand new platform. We have been working on creating a new, improved platform for the past 12 months, and we are excited to announce that it is finally ready to launch.

The New Xplenty Platform

Faster and Slicker

The new platform looks better and works faster, giving you a more positive user experience and allowing you to create, edit, monitor and control your data pipelines more intuitively and effectively.

Advanced Search Options

Search can be a powerful tool and an immense time-saver, allowing users to find information more quickly and easily. Here are some new things you will be able to do:

search

Use the new free text search bar to search for Jobs and Packages by status, duration, start or end date, completed or failed status and much more.

Define Dependencies Between Tasks Using WorkFlows

Quickly and easily create dependencies between data flows. By defining the relationships between your packages, you can trigger automatic actions (e.g. execute “Impressions load” and after you successfully execute “Daily aggregates”). This can help automate your pipelines, allowing you to run different types of packages with minimal manual effort.

Data Flow

The new Data Flow is faster, modern and slicker-looking than its predecessor. We improved the user experience, simplified the entire data pipeline process and allowed for more advanced, streamlined capabilities.

Create more fields and components

The new data flow designer can handle many more fields and components throughout the pipeline.

Inline X-Console

The Inline X-Console is now available directly in the new package designer, rather than appearing in another tab. It lets you test Xplenty functions right in your pipeline to see exactly what will happen and how they’ll work. This can help avoid mistakes or confusion when creating new packages.

Improved Expression Editor With Built-In Examples

The improved Expression Editor is better and more streamlined than its predecessor. Now, you can add more functions, use code, and connect multiple sources at once during the transformation phase. This allows you to quickly and efficiently create more complex and useful pipelines.

Auto-Layout

When you’re working on a pipeline and using many components, it’s easy for the screen to become messy and unorganized. Auto-layout prevents this from happening - with one click, the tool organizes your components and cleans up your screen, allowing for faster, more efficient work.

Keyboard Shortcuts

New keyboard shortcuts will help you save time and increase your overall efficiency.

Compatibility with v2 APIs

Xplenty’s new platform is built completely on top of the v2 API, which allows you to fully control your process and use it from your own services. Read more through our documentation.

Our product and R&D teams listened carefully to all of your feedback and worked hard to deliver the features that you need most in an all-new, robust, user-friendly platform. With this new release, we’ve completed the transition to the new Xplenty platform, all with the aim of creating the most intuitive and effective ETL platform available.
