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 this is still difficult?

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. Most of the time that results in you being again the last in line in the development chain right after your fellow colleague, who always needs more time for his part then planned, which gives you less time to make your changes properly.

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.

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!

PlatformManager by IN4BI 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.

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.

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
