Re: Skills needed to become Qlikview Architect?

Hi Ramesh - Many of the QlikView Architects we see within our customer base are stepping back and looking at the QlikView deployment as a whole.  I like Vishal's list and would add types of skills that impact the whole environment:

- Designing reusable data layers

- Designing complex application architectures

- Designing governance and self service processes

- Performance monitoring and tuning

- Capacity planning

- Security

Things like that.  Hope this helps!

I put some thoughts about skills needed to be a QlikView developer into a blog post.  As mentioned by Marcus Spitzmiller many people have skills that span the entire implementation - not just the architecture.

The blog post can be read here: What Makes A QlikView Developer?
