I am trying to present a case to my management to do qlik upgrade "11.0 SR2" to "11.2 SR5". I am looking for some good points to make my case strong tomorrow... Please help with somereference or good points so i could make my case strong.
Support for IE11 its the first reason I can thing of. Then, also:
- A new Map Extension. See http://community.qlik.com/blogs/qlikviewdesignblog/2013/12/20/qlikview-112-sr5-and-maps
- Sharepoint 2013 supported
- Support for Windows 8.1
Check out the attachment for details.
The biggest reason would be the change they have made to the .share files to keep them from becoming corrupted. This would be worth the upgrade.
Apart from what Bill says, to what I totally agree, you also have several hundreds of bugs fixed and new functionality with Direct Discovery 2.0, the hybrid approach of QlikView to Big Data.
EDIT: Probably the biggest reason of all them is that QlikView 11.20 is the current branch fully supported of the product and being developed with fixes and new functionality via service releases. There will be no further service releases for 11.00.
Stability and increased performance enhancements in Ajax. Greater stability in shared files (used for DR and or clustering) if applicable to your installation
Windows 2012 support
Good Browser support
Hope this helps ?
That's what preprod and Q&A and test environments are for: you first deploy QlikView in that environment, confirm that it behaves as you expect, then you upgrade your production environment.
