Job queue processing optimized

PM 4.5.3 Possibility to run more than one job at the same time

Until version 4.5.3 PlatformManager executed all jobs (i.e., import, check-in, extraction, checkout, promote) sequentially. So, each job had to wait for another job to finish.

While most jobs are processed swiftly, the job queue can grow when many jobs are requested in a short amount of time or when large time-consuming jobs like import, check-in and data extraction are added.

The Job Queue mechanism is now optimized to run in parallel (whenever possible). This means that at the same time an
extract job is running a check-in, import, checkout or promote can be done.

Also
import, check-in and extraction of items that use another BI Service can run at the same time.

The maximum amount of parallel job can be configured to get the most out of your PlatformManager installation.

This feature is most powerful for customers with multiple BI solutions (i.e., QlikView & Qlik Sense) managed by PlatformManager. For example: extraction of a QlikView application does not hinder any Qlik Sense jobs in the queue. It can almost double the job load capacity of PlatformManager, depending on the mix of job types in the queue.

But even with one BI solution working with PlatformManager becomes so much smoother. You don’t have to wait for this huge big data app to be imported by a developer before your promote job is processed. It can all be done at the same time.

Sneak Peak new UI

The PlatformManager user interface is aimed at being able to quickly find and execute functions. The UI is also excellent for this and we even get positive feedback about the user-friendliness. In terms of look and feel there is room for improvement and we took on that challenge some time ago.  We engaged a specialized design agency to investigate what a good, user-friendly and modern interface should look like. After discussions with Partners and customers, this resulted in a design that we are very satisfied with and which has also been coordinated with various customers. The reactions are very positive and we now want to give you a sneak peek so that you know where PlatformManager’s design is headed.Figure 1 shows the navigation between modules and the folder structure. Figure 2 shows the columns settings for Development. You can now select the columns you want to see, put the columns in your order and define the width and sort order per columns.

Reference case: PIXUM – BI Application Lifecycle Management with PlatformManager

PIXUM Diginet in Germany has been a valued Customer using PlatformManager for QlikView and Qlik Sense since 2017. EVACO, our Solution provider in Germany, has done a great job and Pixum was able to use the software productively in around three weeks. According to Hendrik Gruβ, PlatformManager offers three major advantages for Pixum. On the one hand, PlatformManager ensures that several people do not further develop an application at the same time. “You can see directly who is currently working on an application.” In addition, the automated version management includes rollback functionality: “You can use it to publish new versions in the development and production area and have them tested and approved using a corresponding process, or if necessary, switch back to an old version. This allows you to provide more flexibility for developers, and setup a better control and management of approval to publish applications on your production servers. Furthermore, the system offers the possibility of analyses of different applications: “We can read and understand the load scripts outside of QlikView and QlikView Sense. For example, the number of fields and objects or loading routes can be displayed. When new developers arrive to the team, they have full transparency,
