Over the past two months, Connector Factory has released more capabilities and connectors for data integration, data analytics and application automation.

Qlik™ Data Integration

Additional SaaS Application Connectors

Qlik™ continues to expand Qlik™ Cloud Data Integration connectivity with a new set of connectors that has just been released. These connectors will enable you to gather business data from more applications that focus on finance, advertising, and human resources as well as other subjects.  By eliminating the need for custom connectors to access these sources, Data Engineer productivity is increased and Data Consumer’s time to insight is decreased.

Improved Interface

More capabilities have been added, and we have consolidated all connectors into one common interface.

This includes improved searching and filtering capabilities along with displaying all recently selected connectors.

Qlik™ Replicate: New Databricks Authentication Type

Qlik™ Replicate recently added OAuth authorization protocol support with Databricks. In the November SR release of Qlik™ Replicate, Qlik™‘s OAuth support methods have been extended to Databricks endpoints. This is paving the way for supporting more endpoints with the OAuth protocol in the future.

Qlik™ Analytics

New SAP ODP Connector

Recently, Qlik™ expanded its support for SAP with a new SAP ODP connector for Qlik™ Cloud Analytics. This connector provides connectivity to the SAP Operational Data Provisioning (ODP) framework which includes many benefits to SAP users vs. previous, existing SAP connectors including:

  • Simplified access to CDS Views and HANA Views
  • Access to Extractors, without the use of standalone network service
  • Usable with an SAP Runtime license
  • Does not require any separate Qlik™ SAP Connector license
  • No need for an SAP transport installation, particularly useful with an SAP managed cloud system
  • Up to 25% faster performance vs. Qlik™’s existing SAP connectors

Note that this new connector is separate from an SAP ODP Connector that’s already available in Qlik Data Integration Client-Managed.
