Easy Deployment with PlatformManager for your QlikView en Qlik Sense environment

October 8, 2019

You are finished with developing you app and everything is ready to move to production, but now?! Export, import again. Are you sure that everything is correct? Do you know what the dependencies are? Are there no conflicts between the different applications? How much time do you need for the deployment process? The deployment to your Qlik production environment is unfortunately not so simple. This process takes a lot of time and energy from you developers. Often you have to download the files, move them to the other server and upload them again. This process is very error prone. Because who gives you the guarantee that the app that you are uploading is the same version as the one you downloaded earlier? And how does the app get the right data? Do you have to change the data connections of the script in the production server? And how do you know which extensions an QVD’s are being used? Are they already in production or do you have to take them as well? Is there a reload task available? In short, this process is very error prone and can have some bad consequences. Maybe the app can’t be reloaded, it contains

Application Governance – The key to a successful BI strategy!

June 11, 2019

Choose a BI strategy! The reason for companies to choose BI strategically is obvious. They want to be the best and beat their competitors. A reliable BI solution plays a crucial role in this. There are three elements that determine BI’s success for a business. How to make your business a success? • An innovative BI solution • Data Governance • Application Governance Why should you use Qlik as a BI solution? Qlik is a great BI solution. The associative engine and working in-memory architecture makes QlikView and Qlik Sense unique and allows users to quickly analyze large amounts of data. If you want the analysis to be successful, this largely depends on the quality of the data. Data Governance helps to make the data increasingly reliable. Without reliable data, the outcome of an analysis by a business analyst is unreliable, therefore worthless. Many companies do not realize that the application is at least as important as the data. If the data is reliable but the Qlik app is not, the result is still unreliable. Even when working with Qlik and the Data Governance is regulated, the result of the analysis is as strong as the weakest link! Can I trust

Are you ready to use Multi Development?

May 23, 2019

Ever wanted to edit a Qlik Sense app with Multiple Developers simultaneously? Ever asked yourself why Multi Development is still difficult? What is your challenge by using Qlik together with your colleagues? We see that most Qlik Customers are developing new apps in a waterfall kind of way, or they manually merge multiple versions of an app into one. However most of the time that results in you being again last in line in the development chain. Right after your fellow colleague, who always needs more time for his part then planned. In conclusion this gives you less time to make your changes properly. Keeping up with the latest technological developments and start using Multi Development! User interfaces and capabilities of apps have grown quite fast over the past decades but some things are still the same as 20 years ago. Working in text based code and merging these changes is not very difficult. Traditional solutions like GIT, SVN and TFS are fully capable of doing this. And when they see a conflict, you as a user need to solve it. Does is work the same for Qlik Sense? Doing the same for a Qlik Sense app however is a
