Introducing Tom Sawyer Launch Center and Schema Extraction for Microsoft Excel

Tom Sawyer Perspectives 9.0.0 Also Includes Improved Performance and New Model-Based Engineering Features

Berkeley, CA, December 11, 2019—Tom Sawyer Software, the global leader in graph and data visualization and analysis technology, announces the release of Tom Sawyer Perspectives 9.0.0.

The new Tom Sawyer Launch Center makes it easy to get started with Tom Sawyer Perspectives. With a single click, you can start Tom Sawyer Graph and Data Visualization, Tom Sawyer Graph Database Browser, Tom Sawyer Business Process, Tom Sawyer Model-Based Engineering, and the documentation for each module. You can also use the Launch Center to view licensing details and stop all the web servers from a single dialog.

In Tom Sawyer Graph and Data Visualization, customers can now use schema extraction for Microsoft Excel data sources and enjoy greatly reduced edge crossings in orthogonal layout. In addition, application start time is reduced by up to 30% and drawing view model update performance is up to 5% faster.

For customers with advanced Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) needs, Tom Sawyer Model-Based Engineering includes many more customization options including the ability to custom color objects by metaclass and allow to filter the diagram tree to show only diagrams that were previously saved by Tom Sawyer Perspectives. There is also special rendering for bus nodes and the ability to group elements by attribute and place them into a nested drawing structure. On the access front, an Internet connection is no longer needed to use the Tom Sawyer Model-Based Engineering web application.

Tom Sawyer Business Process can now automatically create lanes based upon the departments or roles of task owners. And, Tom Sawyer Graph Database Browser has a user-friendly embedded query editor and improved appearance rules.

This release also includes a new Web Application Developer’s Guide that describes how to create a web application from a Tom Sawyer Perspectives Designer project.
