Integrate Event Studio functionality into C11 Analytics core

Event Studio in v10.2.2 was a very handy toolset that allowed businesses to schedule jobs with much more detail than the regular scheduler. We were able to verify conditions, and create detailed step by step actions to take. Also, the communication towards the end-user (sendouts) was refined, supported HTML content and was highly customizable. That said, the product was flawed and buggy in many ways.

We don't request a straight port to v11. No, instead, we request to consider to take that functionality as a base, and develop in one of the future releases of v11 a way to allow our admins to schedule, with conditional checks, a report view or dashboard view, in Excel, HTML or PDF, and send it to a list of users taken from a data source. Make sure that e-mail content can be formatted in HTML and customized with parameters received from the Data Warehouse.

Such functionality is vital. We understand the push from IBM towards self-service and users running content directly on the platform. But top management will always want to see dashboard overviews and summary reports in their mailbox. Nowhere else.

Thank you
