iVIEW Dataflow

Remove the complexity of code

with iVIEW Dataflow

For businesses wanting to save time and money on data application builds or are looking for a cost-effective way to enable internal teams to service their business’s data requirements more easily, iVIEW Dataflow is an easy to use, visual front-end interface that creates code for you, standardizing the use of code within your business and enabling your business to move towards a self-service environment.

Key Features

Benefits

Save Time With Standardised Code

iVIEW Dataflow is a code-free framework for Qlik that helps you save time and money. Everything is configured in a central repository so there is no need to make changes to the code, no need to search when conditions change.

Governed ETL Processes

All workflows are structured according to Qlik’s best practices and compatible with an integrative corporate BI strategy. Give your Qlik projects a standardized structure and simplify your deployment process. Comprehensible, easy-to-read ETL logic, also for non-Qlik-developers.

Powerful Workflow Engine

Data integration and dimensional modelling with an intuitive and powerful stack of ETL operations for the BI developer. The generated Qlik code is readable and well documented.

Automated Workflow

Dataflow makes use of Qlik’s own APIs for a controlled, flawless deployment to Qlik Sense or QlikView. Unify your deployment processes and allow for a continuous delivery in your BI projects.

State-of-the-art Technology

Dataflow uses Java as a standard backend technology and its repository can be installed on standard SQL databases or even use Excel.

Supports QlikView To Qlik Sense Migration

An ETL process based on iVIEW can be migrated from QlikView to Qlik Sense, by «pushing a button». The central repository and code engine will do the rest for you. Taking self-service to a new level.

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

Version control allows the user to view various versions, import a workflow from excel or zip files, create empty versions and clone the active version and if needed set it as the active version.

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

Using iView Dataflow, it is possible for the user to view the dataflow dependencies as a process-flow. This function also demonstrates the process-flows with GUIs, external and internal dataflows and the input and output tables to follow the development. This process works with your applications within Qlik.
The process-flow view has shortcuts to add, edit, move, link and remove dataflows.
The folder view enables the user to view all the contents of the workflows in one central area for ease of use.

Dataflow Views

The user can create, clone, edit and delete dataflows within iVIEW DataFlow. It is also possible to check the QVD and QVS generated by the workflow created.

Steps in Dataflow

It is possible to show and hide advanced options to facilitate the navigation between steps when building a dataflow.

File View in Dataflow

With file view the user can see the generated code (QVS) and the QVD format.

Add Operation & Quick selections

Under Steps you can add an operation and gives you the ability to have shortcuts to the following features:

Add operation – this feature allows for a creation of an operation from columns to rows, concat, extraction, Delta and segmentation.

Under Quick selection a user has many features including extraction, delta and segmentation.

Transformation: allows the user to load, inline, custom, join, concat, change columns to flows, change rows to columns, create a time series, create a hierarchy, run a script check and for mapping.

Modelling: Allows the user to use the modelling functionality.

Processing in Dataflow

In the processing section, the user can build and deploy the workflow to Qlik Sense.
The user can also identify if there were any errors and check for details during the process using the magnifier.

Connections

Manage Dependencies

Under connections, the user can manage workflow dependencies using the dropdown to speed up the process and increase efficiency.

Manage Connections & Variables

A user can also manage and check connections as well as variables in this section.

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.
