New features in our release PlatformManager 4.0

Reload your Application after promotion

Our mission is to make the development of an application more efficient for you as a developer. As a result the end user can spend more time analyzing the data. For that reason we continue to develop PlatformManager and continue to expand. Ultimately PlatformManager makes your development process more efficient and much easier.

In PlatformManager 4.0 we developed a new feature which allows you to run a reload of an app during the promotion process.  You don’t have to switch to your Qlik Sense app to reload your application because now the option is integrated in PlatformManager.

Multi-development

PlatformManager allows multiple developers to work on the same Qlik Sense app, simultaneously which will speed up your development process. 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 previous version visualizing the differences.

Top 4 benefits of Multi Development in PlatformManager 4.0

  • Allows multiple developers to work on the same Qlik Sense app, simultaneously
  • Developers no longer have to wait until the app is checked-in.
  • Changes are synchronized to all developers so merging is not required

Application Governance – The key to a successful BI strategy!

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
