The new Dynamic Asset Provider (DAP) framework enables the use of dynamic images from external sources via a “URL feed” in the Editor.
A dynamic image is an image that is updated in real-time through variable information provided by the CHILI publisher Editor.

This framework has now been extended to connect to any service that is accessible via a URL, enabling businesses to access the most current information driven by numbers or data. A company’s quarterly financial reports, for example, would use charts to highlight revenue growth that occurred in that time period.

It allows users to have automatic updates of information such as – though not limited to – charts or diagrams using numbers of percentages in an Excel file. In this example data would come from the Excel file into the attached data field associated with the chart of diagram, saving time and ensuring the accuracy of the data presented in the chart or diagram.
