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 challenge and the traditional solutions are incapable of doing the same for a Qlik Sense app. However, allowing multiple developers to work on the same app simultaneously doesn’t have to be difficult. We have the solution and you don’t even have to merge the changes into a single version!

Multi Development with PlatformManager

PlatformManager allows multiple developers to work on the same Qlik Sense app, simultaneously which will speed up your application development. Developers no longer have to wait until the app is checked-in. They can work together in the same app at the same time. Just agree on who is working on which part of the app and you’re good to go. Every developer simply checks-out the app and starts developing new sheets, visuals or changing the script. When finished, they just perform an individual check-in.

During development changes are synchronized to all developers so merging is not required. When all developers have finished, the app can be published for testing and the new version can be compared with the checked-out version visualizing the differences.

A lot of time and money can be saved

By giving the developers the possibility to work together on the same app at the same time a lot of time and money can be saved.

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
