What's new in this version

What's New?

  • Major development on core engine components (23.2.6) that improve VDM's overall performance, scalability, stability and usability. (Task 1615)
  • VDM's Datawarehouse feature now stores Grid Level expressions for both the Detail and Summary Grids. (Feature 1627)

Bug Fixes

  • (Bug 1621) - VDM: Scheduler Appointment Options Differ Using Database vs Calendar File
    • When the Calendar file is used, we don't have all the options available. (Minutely / Hourly / Time Zone, etc.)
  • (Bug 1623) - VDM: Scheduler - Job Management Errors
    • After changing view / execution order and saving the job, the next job you would open will have the wrong order of your jobs.
    • Adding views to an existing job would cause job to inherit the execution of the selected view when clicking add.
  • (Bug 1624) - VDM: VDM: Finished Reports - Designer Button Opening Multiple Tabs
    • When clicking on the FInished Report Designer Button with the designer already open, VDM would open another tab for the Finished Report.

Designed for any user who needs access to their SQL projections in InterSystems Caché, InterSystems DeepSee, InterSystems IRIS, InterSystems IRIS for Health and InterSystems IRIS BI databases. VDM features a drag and a drop query builder, interactive data grids, charting, gauges, data visualizations, banded report writer, report scheduling and batching, as well as web reporting capabilities.

VDM leverages the Managed Provider for .Net to communicate with InterSystems databases, and no ODBC drivers are needed to access the SQL projections for InterSystems Caché, InterSystems IRIS and InterSystems IRIS for Health. VDM accesses DeepSee.RESTClient.cls for building MDX queries and communication with InterSystems DeepSee and InterSystems IRIS BI.

v10 features a new Report Scheduler and Automation process that has an Outlook inspired look and feel. We've also introduced a new feature called Insights, a report repository and data warehouse that is powered by the Scheduler.


While VDM is not a SQL syntax editor, the graphical query builder can be bypassed and SQL scripts can be pasted directly into the Advanced Query form for execution against your InterSystems database.

The InterSystems DeepSee and InterSystems IRIS BI features are currently EAP.

Community feedback on our project is appreciated.
