Reload Qlik Sense app during promotion

January 21, 2022

We noticed that many customers are reloading their Qlik Sense apps in Development and moving them to production with data. The single purpose for most customers is that they want to prevent Business Users from seeing an empty app while the reload is running and taking more than 30 minutes or so.

The disadvantages of this approach is that your production data needs to be available in Development and will stay in PlatformManager until the item is removed. That takes up a lot of disk space but is also inefficient since after some time the data is no longer relevant.

This is why PlatformManager offers a reload during promotion. While we promote your app you can check the option to reload the app with the latest data using the data connections from the destination Qlik Sense server, mostly your production environment. We will only replace the current version after the reload has finished. So, your Business users will always have an app with data while you can still store the app without data or with a minimal test dataset.

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. Want to make sure you keep track of the release and more? Be sure to check our website or follow us online! Twitter or LinkedIn

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,
