QlikView Deployment Issues

Harlan Webber
Vice President, Business Continuity Manager / Information Security Officer / Project Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Never has this been a problem, but mostly in our company, we focused on using QlikView standalone. We had tons of core and server architectures, and QlikView was used to improve reconciliation and quality control. Ultimately, there is great power in using QlikView to be an enterprise solution (in the right context). But the user base was able to get so much productivity out of our approach. And to get an enterprise solution in place required a budget and resources, which we did not have. View full review »

There is no general rule, but we use the deployment framework, which allows us to produce a QV application user with four different levels of deployment: * One level for the extraction of the data (1 to 1) * In the second level, we get the original tables and based on the user requirements, build the data model and make the necessary transformations. * In the third level, we get an intermediary state of the data model to be loaded in the end-user application. * The fourth level contains the end-user application. We do a “binary” load, which is a command line in the QlikView script that allows us to copy 1-1 to the application we are copying from, in this case, from the third level. We have separate development from production and testing in a highly reachable environment (cluster environment). View full review »

Qlik is able to import data directly from a transactional database and create joins between the tables in there. However, I encountered a performance issue with high volumes of data. Therefore, I suggest designing a data warehouse and use it instead as Qlik’s data source. The performance will be much better. View full review »

Licensing costs are a big one, see aforementioned point. Second would be the hardware requirements from a developer point of view. Because of the in-memory allocation of the application, really big data sets take a really, really long time to load, often times making the user wait quite a while for the loads to finish. If you are making changes to one dataset on an application that has multiple load statements, there isn’t an option to only reload the changed statement. Instead, the entire load has to be redone and thus the cycle begins again, as does the waiting. View full review »

We implemented different versions of QlikView within a few years, starting with version 8, Small Business Edition to Enterprise. We also moved to new hardware environment, but never had any issues. All versions we had in production were always stable. At the same time, we never used the first release of a new version for the server environment; the QlikView application has always been tested. Developing and deploying new reports are always tested in test environment before we publish. Scalability of reports should be considered separately. View full review »

No issues at all. This application requires very little care and feeding. Cannot speak to big data scaling, our largest data sets are in the 1TB range — but no problems noted at that level. View full review »

You can encounter deployment issues if you do not follow good / recommended “best practices”. Such issues can always be resolved through better design of the implemented solution. By adhering to good practices, deployment, stability and scalability should not be an issue. View full review »

We had issues. After deployment, while extracting data from SAP BW, a timeout error occurred many times. We haven’t found any solution for it. So, we have to keep reloading the job on QMC until it gets successfully reloaded for the day. View full review »

Deployment is very easy and quite stable. Only drawback is that the server can stop functioning if not enough memory is available, so that needs active monitoring once you are close to the limit. View full review »

There’s no version control, which means you can't roll back to earlier versions once overwritten/published. View full review »

QlikView is an in-memory product, so large dashboards place a significant load on a server's memory. This needs to be carefully considered when sizing your environment. View full review »
