The following 14-min video shows how the Delta Tags technique easily replaces another commonly used approach to incremental loads (based on variables) in QlikView and Qlik Sense, and demonstrates why the Delta tags approach makes the process more reliable while still being highly efficient and configurable. Another important aspect of this technique that is demonstrated in the video is how the Delta Tags approach works very well with segmented QVDs (a.k.a partitioned QVDs) in an incremental scenario, something that is not as straightforward to implement with other approaches.
