Is Qlikview Desktop and Development Environment Different?

Hi,

I have given estimation for 3 different environments installed in 1x2 VMs (DEV,QA and PROD).But the suggestion came as 2 QVs and one test server. So the sizing came for QA and PROD and for Qlikview Desktop. Qlikview Desktop means the development Server?

Re: Is Qlikview Desktop and Development Environment Different?

1) How are we going to have licensed version in Qlikview Desktop?

if you have a server with named licenses (QlikView production server as you can lease from a Qlik prod non from a Qlik test; ask QlikView for the difference (price, etc, ....) prod vs test) you can lease the license from the server and use for 30 days (then connect to the server for another 30 days)



2) Once Dashboards are developed ,How are we going to have that tested, is it something like placing the dashboard in test server and testing it?

Yes. Also the Dashboard developer can do some (a lot) of testing in the Desktop.

When the dashboard is developed, you can deploy the Dashboard (Qlikview document .qvw) on the server, give permissions to users, reload (load in the dashboard the data from database, files, ...), etc.....)

Then the test users open the Dasboard (in the browser or in the browser with IE plugin or with the Desktop (open in server)) and test it.

Deploy is a copy of the Dashboard from the pc (where it was developed with QlikView desktop) to the server.

3)So we can also directly test in QA once the dashboards are developed in Qlikview Desktop..

You can deploy and test the Dasboard on the server you want (QA, DEV, PROD, Acceptance, etc, .....).

Qlikview Desktop is the desktop application used to develop qlikview documents. Qlikview Desktop is not Qlikview Server.

QlikView desktop is the tool to develop documents (dashboart, report, etl)

Server is needed to give the users access to the documents (usually with a browser) in the different enironments (DEV, QA, PROD)

Hi

Thanks for the replies !!!

As I see in my Quotation,the hardware specifications for Qlikview Server and Qlikview Publisher has been done only for Production and QA and sizing for Qlikview Desktop(No QVS mentioned) ...What about Development Environment?

Re: Is Qlikview Desktop and Development Environment Different?

The presence / absence of the development server depends by many things (money, amount of data, requirements, etc ...).

Sometimes it does not mind having the development server.

Sometimes I used the same server (or server groups) x 2 environments (I assume DEV QA) differentiating the folder of DEV and QA.

Please also understand that with QlikView desktop (which often is on a PC, not on the server) you can develop and testing throughout the document and that under certain conditions (eg amount of data manageable from the PC used in development) you can avoid the development server.

It's quite difficult to answer, probably talking to the partner that follows you or a QlikView representative can clarify these issues.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies !!!

So Development Environment doesn't mean necessarily to have Development Server(QV Server).we can have just Qlikview Desktop.

1) How are we going to have licensed version in Qlikview Desktop?

2) Once Dashboards are developed ,How are we going to have that tested, is it something like placing the dashboard in test server and testing it?

3)So we can also directly test in QA once the dashboards are developed in Qlikview Desktop..

Ok.so as my Hardware specifications offer mentions QV Server and QV Publisher only for QA and PROD,

and Hardware specification given for Qlikview Desktop,we No need to install QV Server separately for development Environment where my Qlikview desktop is... and it also applies if we have separate boxes as well for all the three environments.Correct? so the steps here:

1) Develop the dashboards in Qlikview Desktop

2) Place the Dashboard in Source folder pointing to QA for testing

3) Distribute through QMC and publisher

4) Move to Production.

Kindly Confirm...
