One of the tools I’ve developed as part of the Lean Data Processing Framework is an optimized implementation of the QVD Segmentation technique. This technique is typically used in Qlik Deployments that deal with large datasets, and allows us to split a large table into multiple QVD files. For example, storing one QVD for each month of data, rather than storing the entire dataset in a single file. While this technique has always been around, and other implementations exist that perform the same operation, the modified version that I’m sharing today focuses on reducing the time it takes for the process to complete by avoiding over-processing, and reducing the motion of data required in the process.
Today, I’m pleased to announce the release of RightQlik 2.0, now with support for Qlik Sense(QVF) files. This version of RightQlik integrates with the excellent open source tool corectl, which is built by the Qlik Core team, to provide easy access to advanced operations on QVF files like viewing metadata, exporting scripts and reloading the app with a single click.
