Today our Leigh Kennedy, Principal Enterprise Architect, will walk you through Systems Development lifecycle concepts used with the Qlik Active Intelligence platform.  This is a 2 part series, this entry covers Part 2. Part 1 can be viewed here.

In our last video we looked at how to implement complex SDLC environments in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS. However we only looked at this from the point of view of a single path from Development to Production. Some organizations also separate their SDLC tiers horizontally. For example a customer may have Finance, HR and Sales in separate work-streams due to governance, information barriers or simply by preference. How to achieve this is not immediately obvious in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS.

In this video we will show how we can build context-aware applications so, your applications will know not just whether they are in Development, Test or production, but also whether they are a Sales, Finance or HR app. We will do this using built-in functionality of Qlik Cloud. We will also look at using these techniques to manage external script libraries so we can ensure we use the correct version of libraries based on where our apps reside.
