Well, Praveena.

Thanks for your respond.

Expect Star & Snow flake schema, have any other schema or other Data model available?

Can you explain what is ERP data model in Qlikview?

In my opinion there is no need to think about ERP datastructures within qlik which are mainly based on relational databases with normalized data. In qlik you will usually use only a very small part from the ERP system and datastructures are rather de-normalized and works best with a star-schema - whereby it's quite common to have some kind of mixed model-schema.

Hi,

My suggestion is to strive for the star schema, because it give best performance.

And, like Marcus wrote, do not think in terms of relational databases.  Rather think in terms of associations.

Dear Marcus,

I agree but some projects start with only ERP data, for that scenario - which kind of data will be in ERP?

In an interview, I faced this question and I answered for that but the interviewer was expected more information about ERP data model and what kind of data will be available in ERP.

I think this couldn't be answered in general. There are too many different ones. Maybe it's useful to start here: Enterprise resource planning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
