Impact Analysis in QPR Suite 2015

In QPR Suite 2015 is the Impact Analysis relevant anymore? Is this feature covered in the new version without the extra installation?

It's not part of the QPR Suite 2015.1. It will be an add-on for 2015.1.

I've understood the Impact Analysis add-on is now less relevant in the new version 2015.1, as there's more flexibility in the configuration of the navigator views? Is this true?

Yes, Virpi is quite right: there are some Impact Analysis reports that can be now implemented on the client as navigator views. However, there still are quite a lot of cases, where a model analysis view cannot be implemented using the navigator view; in these cases, the Impact Analysis add-on can be utilized. Basically Impact Analysis add-on implements a path navigation language while navigator views are based on a more simplistic model element filtering approach. Due to this fundamental difference in implementation approaches the Impact Analysis add-on provides better support for implementing simple reports.

The following Impact Analysis reports will be implemented as client-side navigator views in the forthcoming ODM 2015.1 release:

Do we have an existing demo about the impact analysis available?
