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

Job queue processing optimized

PM 4.5.3 Possibility to run more than one job at the same time Until version 4.5.3 PlatformManager executed all jobs (i.e., import, check-in, extraction, checkout, promote) sequential. So, each job had to wait for another job to finish. While most jobs are processed swiftly, the job queue can grow when many jobs are requested in a short amount of time or when large time-consuming jobs like import, check-in and data extraction are added. The Job Queue mechanism is now optimized to run jobs parallel (whenever possible). This means that at the same time an extract job is running a check-in, import, checkout or promote can be done. Also import, check-in and extraction of items that use another BI Service can run at the same time. The maximum amount of parallel job can be configured to get the most out of your PlatformManager installation. This feature is most powerful for customers with multiple BI solutions (i.e., QlikView & Qlik Sense) managed by PlatformManager. For example: extraction of a QlikView application does not hinder any Qlik Sense jobs in the queue. It can almost double the job load capacity of PlatformManager, depending on the mix of job types in the queue. But

Job View Enhanced

PM 4.5.5 A filter for a specific period is added to the JobView The JobView monitor shows all (re)scheduled, running, passed, cancelled and failed jobs. For instance, failed imports, successful promote, etc. Now it is possible to not only filter jobs based on status, but also on time period (i.e., last week). Monitoring your jobs becomes so much easier. You select the status and time period of the jobs to get an overview. This overview helps you to manage your job queue. When a job failed it is possible to rerun the job immediate or schedule it to be executed at a specific date and time. Already scheduled jobs can be canceled or rescheduled if so needed. This is great, for instance, if an import failed because of a missing extension. After importing the extension the import job can be re-run instead of going through the import wizard again.

Support for Qlik Sense SaaS (hybrid)

In our 3 phase Qlik Sense SaaS support approach we are now working on Phase II. Phase I was tested and released in 2021 and enables customers who have an on-premise Qlik Sense implementation with additional Qlik Sense SaaS tenants to usePlatformManager. The synchronization to the QS SaaS tenants is fully executedby the Qlik Sense synchronization process. Phase IIgoes a step further in a way that PlatformManager can also take over thesynchronization to the QS SaaS tenants. We believe this is a more integratedapproach with additional features which are of great use for Customers workingin a hybrid environment. What we aim to achieve is that the QS SaaS tenants are also controlled and visible in PlatformManager. Features that will be provided are: Automated deployment to a QS SaaStenant of apps and Extensions. If necessary, we will change the owner of theapp. Automatically changing the Dataconnections used in the Qlik Sense app during promotion to the QS SaaS tenant. Move the app to the requireddestination space. A reload can be fired after orduring promotion. Phase IIIwill support a fully operational DTAP implementation running in QS SaaS. Wewill start a research project around April 2022 to investigate the bestfeasible approach for this.
