Manage data files on QSB

Is there any way to manage data files on QSB better than come to data manager of each app and do re-upload manually? I have a workaround like using connector to GGC or dropbox, but it's much better to use only 1 cloud-based place to manage data.

It all depends on what is meant by "better". What you have mentioned as workaround is usually how you load source data to apps without the need to re-upload manually.

Thanks for your reply!

Get Power Bi as example, they have a built-in on premise data gateway, a kind of tool to synchronize your local data sources to cloud data set which can be used directly by Power BI cloud. Then, we won't need any other cloud based tools.

I manage my QVDs in Dropbox. They are created by QlikView storing QVDs in to Dropbox. My Qlik Sense Business App pick them up from Dropbox. This way there is no manual intervention. 

You mention PBI. I seem to be picking up a lot more PBI queries at the moment, but it seems to be pricing related. I think out current global  situation must have something to do with it?
