Flexera has been working on an automatic process to create releases for the next/later versions of an existing product in Technopedia to allow for immediate recognition without having to go through the coverage enhancement (aka gap-fill) process.
The probabilistic nature of this capability takes into consideration all prior/existing recognition rules and mappings as well as patterns of existing versions already in Technopedia.
This process will help us in identifying the potential new versions which leads into creation of new releases faster.
Customer can get the benefit of immediate recognition for the submitted discovered/evidence data.
Through the new mechanism we have identified around 4,600+ potential new releases that will be created in Technopedia. releases will be added to Technopedia (according to the scheduled implementation below), however, they will initially miss some details like lifecycle dates (General Availability, End of Life, or Obsolete dates). Further curation will be done to complete those missing details soon after.
Here’s the plan on how these changes will be implemented:
· Approximately 500 new releases will be created in Technopedia each week
· These newly created releases will show the lifecycle date values (General Availability, End of Life, or Obsolete dates) as “Not available” with the Exception fields showing “To be curated”
· Within a week or two, these releases will be reviewed and further curated with the correct values (upon which the “To be curated” exception will either be removed or replaced with more appropriate values)
· Customers can expect approximately 1,000 release updates every week (500 new releases and updates for previously created 500 releases). See the schedule below:
