What's New in the Qlik Data Catalyst June Release? QVD Support and Graphic Lineage
Today Qlik Data Catalyst's June Release is GA. There are two features of note in this release:
First, Qlik Data Catalyst will provide support for the catalog of Qlik Sense and QlikView QVD structures. QDC will provide the ability to scan Qlik directories, identify QVDS, and provide a full profile and searchable catalog view of the QVDs in your directories. These QVDs can be transformed in QDC with other QVDs and non-QVD files and can be shared as CSV files to non-Qlik BI tools such as Tableau and Power BI. This is the first time that Qlik is creating a simple, open integration framework to non-Qlik applications.
The second important change is a significant improvement to the data lineage view of data assets. A new, graphical user interface will show source, transformations, and publications of data sources so as to understand impact analysis and improve transparency to the source of data. This includes an ability to import external metadata to enhance the lineage view for the end user and governance community.
Powerpoint slides are attached that provide a bit more detail and have a graphic of our new lineage screen.
