Super Datasets make model consolidation easier

Consolidating various models, particularly in the context of ALM runs, has been a common challenge for AXIS users. Super Datasets can provide some relief through specialized functionality aimed at producing consolidated output from a network of underlying AXIS liability models, without the need to merge into a single Dataset. Super Datasets is defined within EnterpriseLink as a group of version-controlled Datasets. Our newsletter highlights both the benefits provided from using Super Datasets as well as key considerations for organizations when determining if they can fully leverage this functionality.
