Retail: build with data

QlikView, QlikView South Africa, Qlik South Africa, B2IT

Improvement constitutes progression. That which has already been achieved does not become superfluous – it is a foundation. It is necessary. And this notion permeates all areas of change. Escalators never became a replacement for stairs and paperbacks have not faded into insignificance in the wake of the e-book.  

Just so, the retail industry is branching out rather than changing lanes entirely. Experience allows one to build on from what and where one started. This can be done – this should be done – by responding and reacting to big data.

Cleaning up Temp Tables and Fields in QlikView and Qlik Sense.

QlikView south africa

Most of the time we use temporary fields and tables in our load scripts in Qlik.

Usually we have some sort of a naming convention like temp_TableName or TableName_temp.

I quite like the way a temp table is identified in SQL with a #-prefix, so I adopted this naming convention for my temp fields and tables in Qlik.

This brought with it a nice advantage in that all the #-fields and #-tables are listed at the top.

Now you can easily see if you have any temp fields and tables left in the app.

This got me thinking: if all my temp tables and fields follow a strict naming convention, I can identify and drop those at the end of my script easily, and not have to worry about them being left behind.

QlikView: looking into a good data model

Qlik South Africa

A well designed data model is a significant factor behind the success of a QlikView project. The architecture and structure of a data model must be well thought through to avoid strings of complicated and unnecessary data presenting itself in the future. 

Let's focus on what QlikView professional Steven Dark says about rocky data model foundations and starting a QlikView project the right way:

“What all too often happens is that the data model from the underlying source database is pulled in, with its existing join fields and system field names. A developer will be forced to deal with some immediate issues, such as synthetic keys, but will sometimes (once they have something that ‘kind of works') leave it at that.  This can sometimes be okay on small data volumes – but it certainly will not scale and causes much extra effort down the line.”
