Easy Deployment with PlatformManager for QlikView and Qlik Sense

October 8, 2019

You are finished with developing your app and everything is ready to move to production, but how?! Download, move to a different server, upload, move to the correct stream, change the data connections. Are you sure that everything is correct? Do you know what the dependencies are?

How much time do you spend on publishing apps, tasks, extensions?

Deploying Qlik apps, tasks and extensions to your Qlik production environment is not so simple. And it takes a lot of time and energy from your developers or administrators. You have to download the files, move them to the other server and upload them again. It’s easy to make mistakes while doing this and it takes a lot of time!

What can go wrong? 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 in the script while working on the production server? And how do you know which extensions and QVD’s are being used? Are they already in production or do you have to publish them as well?

In short, a lot can go wrong resulting in your Business Users not being able to analyze your data! Stop this and make your Publication process go smooth and automatically.

How do you know your dependencies?

The main goal of developing Qlik apps is to enable Business users the ability to analyze the companies data. Therefore you develop Qlik apps and publish these to the production server where Business users use them to analyze your data. Everybody wants that to happen quickly, efficiently and with a minimum chance of errors. Most of the time the app has dependencies that you are not aware of. Often QVD’s are used to provide the data and extensions are often used for visualizations. Sometimes an external script is used and a binary load is done. But how do you know all these dependencies?

Easy Deployment with PlatformManager!

With PlatformManager deployment is easy. With just a few clicks you can publish your Qlik apps to any server. Would you like to promote multiple apps that depend on each other? Then you can build a release and publish that to your production environment. Is something wrong? Did you overlook something when testing the app? No worries, you can restore the complete release package and keep your production environment consistent. Would you like to publish to the same server or different servers on other locations? It’s all possible. And not just for Qlik apps but also for Extensions and Reload tasks. Simple and effective. Want to know more?
