in the following I will ask a couple of questions to achieve a better understanding of the possibilities with Data Catalyst in combination with the traditional qlik range (view/sense).
My interpretation of the functionality of Data Catalyst is that this tool provides customers a better organisation and understanding of their data while providing analytics tools for the data. I can combine different data sources and combine them with keys.
Traditionally the qlik applications (view/sense) do not need an extra data warehouse to organize the data sources. While going through the ETL process the qwf files are generated by script to use them within the applications. I can use a qvd file in more than one application at the same time.
My first question is about the correctness of my assumptions above. Am i right so far?
Focusing on Data Catalyst now, I would like to know...
1) if Data Catalyst can be seen as a "qlik native data warehouse", where i can organize all my input sources?
2) if I can extract and transform the input sources like i can do it with qlik view scripts?
3) if i can connect the Data Catalyst automatically with third party systems like e.q. SAP BW via connectors?
My questions lead into the direction that i am thinking about using a well organized "data warehouse" with user interface possibilities instead of all the individuell scripts and files. My goal would be a central system, where all input files are transformed and updated, which provides the qvd files for all the different applications (sense AND view).
Is that a realistic option or do i misunderstood the meaning of Data Catalyst?
Thanks in advance!
