More Intelligence: PlatformManager 3.5 releasedFebruary 20, 2017
This week we released PlatformManager 3.5, our latest solution for BI Application Lifecycle Management and Application Governance supporting Qlik Sense, QlikView and SAP/BusinessObjects.
One of the most important changes in this release is the way we support migrations from QlikView 11 to QlikView 12. PlatformManager now enables you to edit/restore/view QlikView 11 items using a QlikView 12 implementation. This will assist you in your company’s gradual migration from QlikView 11 to QlikView 12.
The Workflow that we used to have has been replaced with the Checklist. This new feature provides various advantages:
- Ability to use different checklists per environment based on item type or used BI solution
- Ability to implement a default checklist per item type or BI Connection
Whereas the Workflow was a sequential process, the Checklist tasks can be approved in a more random order. This provides more flexibility to users during the approval process. Each checklist task can be mandatory or optional.
When promoting a Release, PlatformManager will try to match the destination paths using the source paths.
Qlik Sense Datasource path validation
Qlik Sense Data Connections are now validated with a single click (on the “Continue” button). In earlier versions you had to approve the connections for each item separately. This is a more user-friendly way of using this feature which requires less clicks.
