The thermal Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect and the X-ray emission offer separate and highly complementary probes of the thermodynamics of the intracluster medium, particularly on their radial dependence. We already released JoXSZ, the first publicly available code designed to jointly fit SZ and X-ray data coming from various instruments to derive the thermodynamic radial profiles of galaxy clusters, including mass. JoXSZ follows a fully Bayesian forward-modelling approach, adopts flexible parametrization for the thermodynamic profiles and includes many useful options that users can customize according to their needs. We are including shear measurement in our joint analysis, and moving from single-cluster to multi-cluster analyses, allowing to quantify the heterogeneity of thermodynamic properties within the cluster population. At the same time, we are creating a suitable framework that effciently stores and optimally processes huge volumes of data being released by the current and new generation surveys.
