These updates will be available for accounts that have elected to upgrade every 3-6 months with Long Term Releases, rather than the regular biweekly release. This is more common for Tulip customers in the life sciences, aerospace, defense, and other regulated industries. If an organization does not utilize LTS with Tulip, then these features have already been rolled out over the past few months.
Tulip is introducing new features in Long-Term Support (LTS) 9 to improve how organizations can centrally manage their applications to standardize and share best practices, ensure compliance, and accelerate value.
- Enterprise App Exchange
Curate, manage, and share apps between workspaces within your organization. Applications stored in the Enterprise App Exchange can be standardized to ensure compliance and improve quality. Organizations can also accelerate app building and speed to value by providing template apps for app builders to configure.
- Additional Updates
Improve documentation with file uploads to tables, speed up review processes by exporting feature flag values from each software version, and increase control in your operations by mapping multiple data sources to each machine.
LTS 9 introduces a major update to Tulip Workspaces to streamline app sharing across your organization: the Enterprise App Exchange.
The Enterprise App Exchange provides a standardized and curated list of centrally managed apps that users can install for a faster time to value. An account owner can begin setting up by designating a workspace as the App Exchange. The Account Owner then adds a published app to the App Exchange where users in other workspaces can install an app. This adds a copy of a curated app to their Tulip Workspace for immediate use.
One benefit of having a centralized repository for managing apps is standardizing app usage across the organization to ensure apps are validated and contain company best practices. This enables organizations to have greater control over their operations, produce high-quality products consistently, and reduce the burden on compliance.
Apps in the Enterprise App Exchange can also be used as templates and customized locally in each Tulip Workspace. With Tulip’s no-code capabilities, organizations can leverage citizen developers closest to the operational challenges to unlock innovative solutions that increase productivity and overcome site-specific inefficiencies. Template apps installed from the App Exchange enable citizen developers to significantly reduce the time-to-value and deploy apps quicker than ever before.
Having the right information at the right time is crucial for engineers, operators, and leaders to make the right decisions. The latest updates streamline workflows by increasing data agility, enabling organizations to reduce time spent looking for documents, verifying information, and aggregating disparate data sources.
Streamline documentation by uploading files directly into a table and ensuring essential data is stored at every app completion. With an easier file-sharing experience, you can efficiently distribute documents important for quality, compliance, and process improvements.
Speed up review processes by exporting feature flag values to a CSV and comparing current settings to previous software versions.
Users can now map machine attributes using multiple data sources. This enables use cases where users can combine events sent from apps with machine data to override a machine’s state.
