It enables optimal control of the administration and distribution of Qlik versions within a business intelligence (BI). Developers and system administrators thus obtain a secure tool for effective management of development and deployment in QlikView or Qlik Sense via one or more environments within the enterprise.

Version Control & Deployment


Secure management for QlikView and Qlik Sense

The use of QlikView and Qlik Sense applications in companies is often confusing. Different versions are in circulation or individual software adaptations have not been adopted across the board. The QlikView and Qlik Sense applications can also be used via different drives and not via a central server. For effective and safe use of QlikView and Qlik Sense, the best and safest option is to have uniform distribution of the software, deployment to the users and centralized management from a single control point. The Version Manager supplies this for Qlik. Thus multilevel authorizations, user security and clear rights management can be achieved and potential risks minimized.

Easy administration with WIP (Version Manager for Qlik)

In large companies and sophisticated SMEs, the organizational effort of using Qlik applications is increasing. In BI solutions that tend to use QlikView or Qlik Sense intensively, challenges and problems arise daily:

  • Several Qlik developers are working on parallel on applications
  • Code consistency must be checked constantly
  • The tidy logic of the program code starts to unravel
  • The applications will not run via a server

Administrators now have a powerful tool in the Version Manager for Qlik, allowing them structured and secure distribution and management of the Qlik application deployed and providing the greatest possible transparency. The Version Manager for Qlik works as an administrative tool for QlikView Version 10 and Qlik Sense version 2.0.

Benefit with WIP (formerly Version Manager for Qlik - VM4Q)

By managing Qlik based applications through WIP, not only administrators benefit for the distribution and management of applications in the enterprise.

  • Automatically creates versions with unique naming conventions

  • Meets the requirements of compliance bodies due to its transparency

  • Reduces the administrative burden of Qlik applications to a minimum
