As we settle into 2021, now, more than ever, data is the lifeblood of any organisation. It is critical to have the latest data always available to make the right decisions, which means you need to build efficient data pipelines for data delivery and keep data moving so it can be the pulse of your business.
Now, there are many challenges in freeing your data from siloed source systems where the data is constantly changing. This is especially the case with legacy systems, such as Mainframes and SAP.
It’s just as important to take into consideration what the data will be used for once its landed – more often than not somewhere in the cloud, taking advantage of all the benefits cloud has to offer. But, who are the consumers? How will they find the data? You need to be able to answer these questions. If you can’t get the data in there fast enough, it won’t deliver a good experience to your data consumers.
This is where Qlik comes in: Our open, end-to-end platform has all these considerations covered and more. We can help you take raw data and transform it into analytical-ready data and make it available to the rest of the business at scale in secure and governed ways.
Our Data Integration Platform can help you build Intelligent Analytic Data Pipelines with automation. The platform features Change Data Capture (CDC) and other smarts that help reduce manual work burden, allowing you to model the data more efficiently. Whether it’s in the cloud, Data Warehouses or Data Lakes, your data will always be up to date. That data can then be catalogued and made available to allow data consumers to shop for data on their own and publish to any BI tool of choice to analyze and find insights. However, if you add Qlik Data Analytics to the mix you, you will get actionable insights delivered to the right people, at the right time, enabling you to make quicker and better decisions.
We are continually improving the end-to-end solution to make your life easier, saving time and effort on manual tasks so you can concentrate on higher business value projects.
Improved Data Integration Workflows
In November 2020, we continued to streamline data integration workflows. Qlik Replicate now automatically registers managed target datasets into Qlik Catalog, which will always be kept up to date in real time via CDC and allow you to better leverage Qlik Catalog's powerful capabilities.
