During the JUG we present the attendees with some of the big initiatives to help us envision the future of JADE beyond 2020 and help us understand which features will be life-changing to them.

Check out the ideas below and head to the JEDI portal to vote, leave your comments and follow the journey of your favourite ideas.

How did we come up with a list of features?

We looked into more significant, more strategic ideas that came from our customers, architects and developers. This is by no means an exhaustive list of initiatives we are considering for the future versions of JADE, so if you don’t see your top idea on our list – please let us know via the Jedi portal!
