Actionable Data, On-Demand
Qlik Catalog makes business-ready data available, on-demand, to Qlik Sense users through its Smart Data Catalog. Enterprise assets, including QVD files, are clearly described with quality, operational, and usage metrics as well as business and technical metadata, including lineage and other user-defined properties. With a touch of a button, users can search for the data that they need, add data assets to their cart and publish to Qlik Sense or other analytics platforms. This role-based, secure shopping experience enables quick, easy access to data that people need while ensuring that sensitive data is protected.
From Raw to Ready
Let’s face it. Data is messy. When we finally find the data that we need, it may have records of suspect quality and often it is difficult to match across data sets because of differing standards for things as simple as country codes and date format. Qlik Catalog offers comprehensive data profiling to help analytics users understand the nature of data, a quarantine capability to isolate problematic data records, and a Prepare module to help execute transformations including standardization, joins, and aggregations. This process helps move data from raw to ready in a simple, self-service interaction that creates highly reusable data assets for the analytics community.
Smooth data conversion
Do you have data in mainframe, XML, JSON or others and would like to convert it to modern formats? Well, that is often a problem. Lots of different table structures, with complex hierarchy relations in different file types… So how can you make this fast queriable data? We have developed a framework that allows users, usually data ops, to very quickly and easily map out these data and convert it into the standardized table structures that we are looking for.
Enterprise ready. An agile, secure, and governed environment
Built on the principles of hardened data security and strong governance, Qlik Catalog delivers enterprise-grade scalability, reliability, and performance. It’s compliant with common industry standards and protocols (ex. LDAP, Parquet, Avro), so it easily integrates with other data management tools. Qlik Catalog facilitates the capture, enforcement, and monitoring of data access policies throughout the data lifecycle. It also tracks data usage. With Qlik Catalog, enterprises can automatically identify and manage sensitive information, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), using customizable rules-based pattern matching. And all data can be encrypted at rest.
