Qlik users often lack the ability to edit and plan data directly in QlikView or Qlik Sense. The company INFORM GmbH recognized the need and use of such an extension and developed Write!. With the help of this extension, it is possible to edit data directly in QlikView or Qlik Sense. This way, data can be corrected directly on-the-fly in the applications, or missing data can easily be added. In addition, complex plans can now be created in Qlik.
Editing in the Qlik interface is possible without having to integrate additional data sources such as Excel or CSV files. It can be used in the QlikView Desktop App as well as in the QlikView web view or in Qlik Sense. The data editing takes place here via any desired HTML objects, such as check boxes, dropdown boxes, calendars or even simple free text.
The data storage can take place in two variants. In the simple version, the data from Qlik is automatically stored in external files such as Qlik’s own database format (QVD). In the second variant, data storage takes place in XML or CSV files. Furthermore, Write! offers the market a unique write-back functionality, which provides the ability to restore the manipulated files to any source database. Indeed, it does not matter which database type it is; even playing back in SAP is possible.
In order to meet the specific needs of our customers and prospective clients regarding their Business Intelligence solutions, we rely on a network of strategic partnerships. As a result, we have decided to partner with INFORM GmbH. This gives us the opportunity to easily implement this extension, both in existing Qlik-based analysis and reporting tools as well as in new Qlik projects.
