Start saving time with Development and Deployment of your Qlik and SAP/BO assets.

Recently, we talked to some of our customers, and they told us that they couldn’t imagine having worked without PlatformManager before. They explained the pain points they were suffering which they no longer need to worry about, such as:

  • The lack of having integrated Version Control and Deploy capabilities embedded in the BI solution
  • Having no information about what has changed and what needs to be tested
  • No insight in dependencies
  • No restore capabilities

GIT Is Great – But So Are We

GIT Is Great – But So Are We

GIT is the most used version control system in the world, it’s been around for decades. A lot of potential customers we speak to use GIT as a corporate standard, and it’s always difficult to get across that we aren’t competing with GIT, but that we can just help businesses in ways that it just can’t. Look, we’ll show you. It’s an easy comparison to make, we understand that. GIT manages some of the key things that PlatformManager also takes care of, the difference is – it’s not purpose-built for Qlik or the business environments that Qlik is deployed in. GIT isn’t going anywhere, but we are growing because our solution does things it can’t, and those things are the keys for your business to unlock true control over app development, testing, and deployment. GIT Isn’t Always The Best Answer We’re writing this having had far too many meetings with prospective clients who can’t get over the fact that GIT does some of what PlatformManager does. It’s a common roadblock that we have to overcome, and we’ve figured out the easiest way to explain it. GIT is a very professional solution, but it focuses on a different audience than us.

How Can A CEO Trust A Dashboard?

Does your CEO trust what you’re telling them?

A CEO bases their decisions on data. They do that because they’ve learned how important it is to make decisions around insight. Some of these decisions have massive implications on the short and long-term success of a business, so it’s an understatement to say that data is important. So how can CEOs trust what they see on screen? There are many reasons that people come to distrust what they see in an app. Whether it’s inconsistencies in presentation, or old data still being delivered, people responsible for building BI applications need to know how to deliver up-to-date, accurate data, in the way their business users need – particularly if it’s the CEO. But what’s stopping them from doing that already, and how can they overcome these roadblocks? What CEOs Need To See There are two components that determine the quality of analysis – data and the overall quality of the app. Firstly, the output of any app is going to be built on data. The end product can have a perfect UX, but if the data isn’t up to standard, then the app won’t be as effective, or reliable, as it could be. There is a wide range of governance

Giving A Helping Hand To BI Developers

Want to make your BI developer's lives easier?

BI developers are an often underappreciated bunch. They work to rapidly shifting business needs, tight deadlines, and often, with little appreciation. So wouldn’t it be great if you could make their lives easier? Well, luckily you can – just take a look at how PlatformManager helps. When we talk about our solution we often look at the direct business impacts. But the great thing about a tool that makes businesses better is that it often has a really positive effect on the people who use it. Doing the best for your developers and arming them with tools that make their job simpler, and their lives easier, can only lead to better work, so let’s show you how PlatformManager lends a helping hand. Managing Change Think, for a moment, of a team of developers, and we’re not talking about two people sitting across from each other at a desk, we’re talking about teams of five or more – particularly those who are working remotely. They might all be tasked with working on changes to the same app at the same time. This app is likely to be live for business users, so downtime stops other parts of the business from operating.
