More and more customers are committing to D♯. The number of license subscriptions and data professionals keeps growing. We are extremely happy that DSharp Oy is already breaking even, which is a testament to a highly competitive product and training program.

D♯ SmartEngine 2.5 has been rolled out to partners and customers. The release is mostly a technical upgrade, pushing three years worth of updates to the UI library, but also usability and analysis functionality have been improved.

The Training Program keeps on rockin’. Last week we had another sold-out Online Intro course, and the next one will take place in late September. We will also give the first Online Advanced course starting next week for those who have previously attended the Intro course, so that’s a good opportunity to have a pragmatic look at real-world situations and how to handle them using the D♯ Toolbox. Please contact us to join!

Growing Demand

After the digitalization leap caused by Corona many analysts are forecasting 10-15% growth for the data market in the next 5 years. Hence, the demand for Data Vault 2.0 and D♯-based Data Platforms is growing rapidly. In parallel the need for business-driven conceptual data modeling is on the rise as our customers and partners invest in data leadership, data governance, smarter data architectures, etc.

Summer Is Coming…

… and the Data Market is hotter than any normal summer day in Finland.

Instead of enjoying the beautiful summer, I am sitting in the air-conditioned office writing this story inviting you to join our growing D# Community.

Surf’s Up,


In April we rolled out version 2.4 of the D♯ Toolbox to partners, customer projects, trials and PoCs. Based on feedback from D# trainings and workshops within the D♯ Business Data Platform (BDP) developer community, we are now happy to announce a further improved version – v.2.4.1.

D♯ v.2.4 – a continuation of v.2.2 and v.2.3.

As the core functionality has been there since version 2.0, the functional highlights of D♯ 2.2 to 2.4 are mostly about streamlining many of the small development-phase tasks the BDP professional performs several times a day, thus further increasing productivity. This includes analysis queries, deployment functionality and usability features. On the core functionality side of things, as important groundwork for the future, the base for Business Vault automation has also been laid. Also, tutorials and other learning material have been expanded for use both in training sessions and for self-learning.

Many improvements have also been made to the commercial packaging of the software in order to enable support for a growing amount of BDP professionals among our customers and partners. The D♯ community is starting to take form as the learning process is improving in parallel:

  • Best recruits with the right background ->
  • D# demonstrations and D# Introduction course ->
  • Self-learning tutorials and D# Advanced course ->
  • PoCs, trials or technology evaluations ->
  • D# certifications.

We are inviting you to join us in creating new school data careers.

v.2.4 and v.2.4.1

Model and mapping analysis catch more modeling and mapping issues than before, leading to faster model-to-SQL -development cycles. The automatically generated HTML-documentation has been extended with Data Lineage diagrams for each automated entity. Changes in how the model based views are generated have greatly improved the query speeds. License and version management is clearer than ever and openness has increased further.

A summary of new features launched can be found here.

Data Warehouse Automation

During 2018-2020 LUT University went through major changes and mergers. The need for collecting and unifying reliable data to feed reporting, analytics and forecasting became acute. LUT, Cerion and DSharp co-operated in specifying and implementing a modern, scalable and flexible data platform to improve support for decision making in the new organization. In parallel LUT has also succeeded in creating a common data governance model for further development of the BI-solution.

During the first phase LUT has trained its own personnel to use the D# methodology and tools, growing into new age data professionals, and is now able to independently maintain and further develop the solution. Read more about the success story (in finnish) here.

The roles of DSharp experts in the first phase were:

  • Training and coaching customer and partner experts
  • Lead consultant for conceptual modeling and solution design
  • Methodology and tool box consulting and developer support
