Hey everyone

Did you know that the latest release across Liberty by Netcall® includes updates for Liberty Create and RPA? The new features included in the 2023.1 release include a number of major improvements alongside suggested improvements that came from the Community Ideas Portal!

So, what is included in this new version?

Liberty AI, adds increased functionality and flexibility alongside new models. Improvements include:

  • Model Regeneration – users are now able to retrain existing custom models with an updated dataset, while maintaining existing integrations with RPA or Create and without needing to start again from scratch. This saves time whilst allowing you to continually improve the accuracy of models with new data.
  • Time Series Model – adding this model type allows for the analysis of time-series data to extract meaningful statistics and other characteristics the data. For example, looking at historic data that fluctuates within week, within month and within season to forecast activity in future periods.

Liberty Create, adds improvements for performance, resilience and user experience. These include:

  • Architectural Changes – the PHP version the platform runs on has been upgraded to PHP 8, producing a number of core processing improvements to the code. Database Schema changes have been applied which primarily focus on record relationships with the aim to improve the processing speed of relations. Composite caching has been introduced which will also contribute to speed improvements. Test Studio has now been rewritten to continue the work done in v22.3 with some minor usability enhancements
  • Document Reader Service – offering the capability to read the content from documents loaded into Create to allow the data to be used for searching, indexing and general document management.
  • Charting Engine - the charting engine used in Liberty create has been rebuilt. The new charts give more modern styling and will enables a wider range of charting types, using graphs that are more interactive & responsive. Where possible all options from the previous charting library have been implemented & existing configurations will be migrated during the upgrade process.
