iVIEW Library

Master the management of KPIs

with iVIEW Library

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are used by businesses to measure their performance against goals. Closely monitoring KPIs can help you gain a clearer view of where you are succeeding, and where there’s room for improvement. But in a data-heavy organizations, KPIs can become confused and lost, with duplications, redundancies and changes in logic invalidating them altogether.

See data clearly

Now you can master the management of KPIs, ensuring they are measurable, actionable, and transparent. iVIEW Library gives you the ability to track items across the Qlik landscape and Qlik Cloud environment within your organization.

It also does more than just KPI management. Let iVIEW Library handle all your master data management as a standalone web application for managing and deploying master data items and content definitions for Qlik. It gives you the opportunity to define and enrich your data and deploy it.

The iVIEW Library provides a single point of truth for Qlik content, providing one central library for all Qlik applications.

FAQ

CAN I GUARANTEE WITH THE iVIEW LIBRARY THAT ITEM DEFINITIONS MATCH MY DATA / DATA MODELS?

For items to be successfully distributed to Qlik Sense, there must be a direct dependency between the items managed via the iVIEW Library and the underlying data models and applications.

To address this, the iVIEW Library provides for direct mapping of Qlik Sense applications to centralised content.

A list of “compatible” Qlik Sense applications can be maintained via the metadata of each item, so that the affiliation to these applications can be checked before the content is distributed by the deploy action.

WHAT TECHNOLOGY DOES THE CENTRAL REPOSITORY USE, HOW BIG IS IT AND CAN IT BE ACCESSED?

For the data storage, you can choose between an embedded database (H2) and MS SQL Server database when installing the iVIEW Library. The latter serves as a repository and as a persistence layer.

The size of the database correlates directly with the size of the Qlik Sense infrastructure and how intensively the content is centralised. Basically, only metadata is held here. Experience shows that the size is in the small to medium MB range.

The database is openly accessible for read access, so that further analyses can be carried out.

WHAT SECURITY CONCEPT IS THE IVIEW LIBRARY BASED ON?

For the Qlik content, the library follows the security concept of Qlik itself 100%, i.e. the user only sees as much as in Qlik. This includes and considers the implemented security rules as well as the “Admin Roles” that are configured in the Qlik Management Console (QMC).

The iVIEW Library implements Keycloak as an authentication and authorisation module. An LDAP connection is provided by default. However, authentication can be extended to other methods and protocols, such as SAML, OAuth2, etc.

For authorisation, the iVIEW Library relies on two basic roles: Library User and Library Admin. The model can be extended to the individual functions of the iVIEW Library. For example, roles for Deployer, App Manager and Library Owner can be easily implemented.
