Product Versions

This document aims to give an overview of all active product versions in Holistics.

How many versions are there in Holistics?

In brief, there are four different versions with different :

  • Version 2.0: This version requires you strong technical knowledge since all reports are built directly from scratch by using SQL. This version is no longer being actively developed.
  • Version 2.5: A combination of 2.0 and 3.0 where you can both keep the old way to create reports from SQL and experience our Data Modeling Layer.
  • Version 2.7: A more stable and upgraded version than Holistics 2.5, where 2.0 and 3.0 features are used and managed separately. Hence, it provides 2.0 customers a clearer migration path to 3.0 version.
  • Version 3.0: our latest, actively developing version.

To differentiate these four versions in details, please take a glance at the following table:
