Value List Compression Portlet

Are there any plans to introduce a portlet that mimics the behavior of AtanaSoft's CompressTool on Viewpoint? (Maybe even license the IP from AtanaSoft or work with AtanaSoft for them to develop the portlet)

AtanaSoft's CompressTool is a great tool to use for identifying opportunities to improve your value list compression however when working with multi-terabyte tables it requires many hours of analysis to complete. Unfortunately, as a client desktop tool it assumes (requires) that the connection for that client is going to reliable for the duration of the analysis. 

Obviously this portlet/service would likely require the ability to be run in the background as a web session may timeout based on Viewpoint settings. Just thinking aloud here on the forum to see what opportunities may exists.

Rob,

Excellent suggestion. Let me discuss with various engineering groups to see what our options are.
