Qlik™ Data Integration

Additional SaaS application connectors

Qlik™ continues to expand Qlik™ Cloud Data Integration connectivity by adding three more business applications that can now be used as data sources.  By eliminating the need for custom connectors to access these sources, data engineering productivity increases and the time it takes to get information to the data consumer is reduced. The new connectors are for:

  1. Anaplan, which provides business planning software;
  2. Oracle Fusion, a suite of applications built on Oracle Cloud;
  3. Oracle Fusion Project Management, which is used to manage project deliveries.

Qlik™ Replicate

The May 2024 release of Qlik™ Replicate delivered a number of improvements related to connectivity with Snowflake, Databricks, SAP, AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Qlik™ Data Analytics

Updated DynamoDB Connector

This connector has been updated to be based on ODBC instead of JBDC.  The Qlik™ DynamoDB connector now also supports authentication using AWS IAM credentials (access key & secret key) or a credentials file.  Note that the previous JDBC-based Qlik™ DynamoDB connector will continue to be supported until the end of July 2024.
