So, how do you solve this with Qlik? Adam developed a module called Qlik-CLI that provides a set of commands for viewing and editing configuration settings, as well as managing tasks and other features available through the APIs. By incorporating Qlik-CLI, the customer can now pre-set their configuration used in the automation for creating an environment. That means when Development is ready to hand over to Quality Assurance, the QA team can build their environment using the exact same configuration settings Development expects, and the same when moving from QA to Production. That’s true DevOps!
In another situation, a customer had extreme seasonal usage of Qlik. At points of the year, the users and volume of data could be almost exponentially heavier than other times. Therefore, they were looking for a solution that would allow them to expand and contract their Qlik server capacity in the cloud to meet their seasonal demand. By implementing DevOps with Qlik-CLI, they were able to not only save money in cloud-based servers by using only what was needed, but they also improved quality and productivity by focusing their attention on developing new apps and insights for their users.
