See the future in an instant

Unique to LemonEdge is our Canvas Technology. Users can make an instant copy of the live system, where they can make changes, test scenarios and more without impacting your actual books and records. Then, delete it or promote the changes to the live system. All with the permission controls and auditing trails you've come to expect.
User-friendly modelling

No technical input required

With Canvases, there’s no waiting around for IT or a software vendor to get replications set up and, equally, no confusion distinguishing between copies or managing them. Quickly copy your system, give it a name, and then get to work modelling in a secure and audited environment.  

Use the full power of LemonEdge

All the functionality in LemonEdge is available once your Canvas is created. You’re working in a safe, compartmentalised environment, but with everything you’re used to in LemonEdge. All your data, documents, and reports, along with the teams, roles and permissions, are the same.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any costs associated with using the LemonEdge Canvasses functionality?

No, as with all LemonEdge functionality, it is all included in the simple licensing model.

How do Canvasses work?

A little is our secret sauce, but we don't 'copy' the data as that would take too long. We have a way of overlaying your changes to the live system and all interconnected data to the changes being made. If you'd like to know more - drop us a note.

What happens to the data in the Canvas copy after the Canvas is finished with?

Data from a Canvas is deleted in full when deleted, with no residual data remaining on the server.

How is data from a Canvas promoted to the production environment, what happens if there is an inconsistency compared to the production data?

Selected data points from a Canvas are optionally selected to be promoted to the live environment (for example, when a Carry scenario is crystallised). If there is no inconsistency, i.e. no relevant changes have since occurred to the live data, then the selected data is copied to the live environment as if it had occurred in the live environment in the first place. If there is some inconsistency with the data in the live environment, e.g. if some production environment activity has taken place on that data since the Canvas copy was created, then the promotion to live is not permitted, with the pertinent reasons reported to the operator.

Are changes in Canvases audited?

Yes, as with auditing in the live environment, every change made in LemonEdge is fully audited, including those made in any Canvas, including changes promoted from a Canvas copy to live.

How is security managed in a LemonEdge Canvas?

Security in a LemonEdge Canvas operates at multiple levels. First, only authorised users can create/use Canvasses at the outset; second, within each Canvas, the same full role/security model applies as in the live environment. Third, a 4-eye approval process can be used to promote changes.

How do upgrades to the LemonEdge environment impact Canvasses?

Upgrades to the LemonEdge system are equally applied to any Canvas, hence there is no loss of functionality, data, or the relationships between them in a pre-existing Canvas.
