Main Features

Dataflow Main page

This contains a list of existing workflows as well as the ability to create, edit and explore workflows from the home screen.

Workflows Main View

The main view in Dataflow (workflow view) is an innovative layered architecture that gives the user the tools to build and manage multiple workflow definitions and variables, easily scale it when you need to and saves you time in the ETL process. In the Dataflow structure, the user can rewrite, clone and edit the work item.

Version Control

When working on a workflow, you have complete control over its versions. This feature enables you to easily mark a version as active or inactive, view the creation date, add a description, and even delete unwanted versions.

Another significant advantage is the ability to maintain a history of all created workflows. This means you can import a specific version or import it as an Excel file, giving you flexibility in managing your workflow data.

Furthermore, you have the option to clone the active version or create a new empty one, allowing for efficient workflow development and customization.

Version Duplication (copy)

Allows you to replicate workflows to a new environment, name that version or copy to a specific location. A user is also able to create a new workflow.

Process Flows & Folder views

With iView Dataflow, users can visualize dataflow dependencies as a process-flow, providing a clear overview of the entire dataflow. This feature showcases the process-flows using user-friendly graphical interfaces, both for external and internal dataflows, as well as the input and output tables involved in the development process. This seamless integration allows you to effectively manage and monitor your applications within the Qlik environment.
The folder view provides a visual representation of the dataflow’s organization, making it easier for users to understand the structure and relationships between different data sets. It helps maintain clarity and reduces confusion when dealing with many data sets.
Additionally, there is an expandable view within the folders, providing a detailed exploration of their contents.

Dataflow views

Within iVIEW DataFlow, users have the ability to create, clone, edit, and delete dataflows. This comprehensive functionality empowers users to efficiently manage their data workflows. Additionally, users can easily check the QVD and QVS files generated by the created workflows, ensuring data integrity and accuracy throughout the process.

Steps in Dataflow

Offers the flexibility to show or hide advanced options. This feature allows users to customize their workspace by displaying only the necessary options, reducing clutter and improving the focus on essential steps. By selectively revealing advanced options when needed, users can seamlessly navigate between steps and streamline the dataflow building process.

File View in Dataflow

The file view in Dataflow provides users with the ability to access and view the generated code (QVS) as well as the QVD format. This feature allows users to inspect the underlying code and data structure, facilitating a deeper understanding of the dataflow process.

Add Operation & Quick selections

Under the “Steps” section, users have the ability to add operations and access quick selections, which provide convenient shortcuts to various features in iVIEW DataFlow.

Add Operation: This feature enables users to create operations that manipulate data in different ways. Users can perform operations such as transforming columns to rows, concatenation, extraction, delta calculations, and segmentation. This allows for flexible and customized data processing.

Quick Selection: Within the Quick Selection section, users can access multiple features for efficient data manipulation:

Extraction: Users can perform data extraction operations to extract specific subsets of data based on predefined criteria.

Delta: This feature enables users to perform delta calculations, comparing data changes between different time periods or datasets.

Segmentation: Users can apply segmentation techniques to divide data into meaningful groups based on specific criteria or attributes.

Transformation: Users can utilize the transformation capabilities, including loading data from various sources, inline data transformations, custom transformations, data joining, concatenation of data, restructuring columns to rows, converting rows to columns, creating time series analysis, establishing hierarchical relationships, running script checks, and data mapping.

Modelling: Users can leverage the modelling functionality within iVIEW DataFlow to perform advanced analytical and modeling tasks to gain insights from the data.

The advanced view of add operation contains both the quick selection for the extraction and automation processes.

Deployment Process

In the processing section, users can build and deploy workflows directly to Qlik Sense. This integrated functionality simplifies workflow creation and deployment, enabling users to harness the power of Qlik Sense for efficient data analysis and visualization.
The user can easily identify and check for any errors or details during the process using the magnifier tool. This feature allows for quick error detection and provides users with detailed information to resolve any issues encountered during the dataflow execution.
By creating an analysis app within a dataflow, users can streamline the process of data analysis and reporting. They can directly access and leverage the processed data, eliminating the need to export or import data to a separate analytics tool.

Manage Dependencies

Under the Connections section, users can manage workflow dependencies using a dropdown menu, which facilitates faster and more efficient processes. This feature allows users to easily establish and manage connections between different workflows or components within the dataflow.

Manage Connections & Variables

In the Manage Connections & Variables section, users have control over connections and variables in the dataflow process.

Manage Connections: Users establish, modify, and verify connections between data sources, destinations, and intermediate steps. This ensures smooth integration, data consistency, and accurate data flow.

Manage Variables: Users define, update, and validate variables for dynamic values used in calculations and transformations. Managing variables provides flexibility and adaptability to adjust settings based on changing requirements.

Other Features

A user can search for concepts such as dataflows and operations inside the workflow through the dialog. This can also be searched by value.

Global Variables

The global variables tab defines various aspects of a dataflow or the environment when the script runs.

What's coming

Dataflow – On Demand

The on-demand model uses the iVIEW Dataflow framework with the wizard to automatically generate user-based applications based on a pre-defined data model.

This can be a powerful tool for organizations that need to build and deploy customer applications quickly & without requiring extensive development resources.

Front-End App on the Go

The direct connection between the Dataflow model and the KPI in the iVIEW Library would allow users to view and analyze KPI data in real-time, without having to manually transfer data between the two systems.

The split screen between the iVIEW dataflow model and the KPI dashboard in the iVIEW Library would enable users to quickly compare and analyze data, making it easier to identify trends and patterns.

Workflow Landscape in Dataflow

A workflow landscape is a visual representation of the various workflows and data dependencies within a system or project.

It shows how different data sources, applications, and processes are connected and interact with each other which helps to identify bottlenecks, redundancies, or potential issues in the system.

It can also help with data lineage and tracking of data movement.

It provides a clear view of where data is coming from and how it is being used.

It will also help identify the different applications involved and how they relate to each other.
