QQtools

Beyond dedicated business solutions you can find in QQsolutions, we have developed in time also a set of tools and principles for processing data and creating generic apps regardless of industry and department. 

First QQtools for QlikView™ have been developed in 2006. Ever since we add, improve, and adapt them continuously.

Generic Solutions to Increase Trust, Security and Flexibility

Rather than to do the same thing twice, we prefer to build a library of basic processing and visualizations that allows us to offer similar solutions to a fraction of the usual effort and cost, dedicated to each beneficiary.
Here are some of these generally applicable approaches, that we have already prepared (some are usable in any application, industry, or department, others are somewhat more relevant in financial analysis):

A package of QQinfo, tools, plus methodologies and good practices that minimizes the risks of using incorrect analytics in the decision-making process.

It is one of the most important components of the concepts brought together in the QQtrust™concept, mentioned above.

When data confidentiality is extremely important to your organization, you may want certain subsets of data to be available only to certain people, while some users to have with access rights to the entire data set. 

Differentiated management of access to sensitive data within the same Qlik™ application, for heterogeneous levels of data access, can be defined in several ways, with QQsecurity™ providing everything a non-experienced Qlik™ administrator needs to control the rules of applicable security.

Dedicated applications or dedicated streams for different security level are no longer needed, making administration easier, and QQsecurity™ is ready to manage differentiated access rights for an entire set of Qlik™ analytics applications, including rules that apply simultaneously to a group of Qlik™ applications (files).

This is a special page, associated with certain generic processing, which allows medium & advanced users of Qlik™ (especially Qlik™ script and interface creators) to navigate the available data space within the Qlik™ application, to better understand the structure and content of the data.
Read more (coming soon !)

This concept, borrowed from world-renowned and expanded and improved Qlik™ experts, allows the reuse of already created interface pages, with any calculation formulas already defined, but also the quick and systematic addition of new calculation formulas to the entire analysis set of the respective application.

 In addition, this mechanism brings to the beneficiaries, from the first delivery, a huge number of options for reconfiguring the available views.Thus, most of the requirements for small changes in views are a priori addressed and resolved, without additional interventions and costs.

When an extremely clear separation between tax accounting records and additional data for managerial analytics, is required, each with a different accounting and financial treatment, it is wise to avoid keeping this additional information in the same system (ERP). Simultaneously, however, maintaining the data in 2 different systems also brings problems of doubling the effort of entering information, as well as problems of data synchronization and understanding the differences

QQadjustments™applies the principles of exception management, taking the basic data, mostly from the tax-accounting system and providing additional space for introducing alteration exceptions (add/ delete/ modify/ etc.).

Finally, the included Qlik™  analytics offer, by a simple selection, options to view:

  • the original tax-accounting version read from ERP,
  • or the adjusted version,
  • but also allows immediate highlighting of applied adjustments (for maximum consistency and transparency).

Generic Data Exploring & Evaluating Solutions

Early stages of reading and exploring data for creating new analytics often requires a separate set of tools from the ones used in day-to-day.

Therefore, these QQdev.tools, have arisen.

Fast identification of the data structures within a data base is the fundamental starting point of any BI project.

Generic Data Processing and Integration Solutions

Retrieving data, processing it, storing it, and sending it to other systems is becoming an increasing challenge, especially as the data sets involved become larger and more heterogeneous.

We address this challenge with generic, reusable, and reconfigurable tools.

We have encountered many situations in which we have been asked to distribute certain value records, of a certain kind, in many smaller slices, in proportion to other values nearby.
Possible areas of application: ABC (Activity Based Costing), CCC (Cash Collection Cycle) and Working Capital analytics on products and/ or suppliers.

SIRQ™ was first created in 2006 to give us the opportunity to repeat similar introductory projects (SIBs) with minimal effort and budget. Since then, we have been continuously improving, expanding, and transforming it.

SIRQ Gen4 is currently under development, aiming to bring in Qlik™ also the final configuring decisions regarding the data processing to be executed in Qlik apps.

For some time, we have started to replace Excel satellite tables with more powerful alternatives, capitalizing on online no-code database solutions. Such solutions bring more robustness simultaneously with the versatility of multiple online, multi-user editing options.

From the tried and tested options, we concluded that AirTable offers a major package of benefits, sometimes even in the basic, free, package.

We have already prepared a quick configuration package (AirTable Data Base & Qlik Scripting) for reading tables from an AirTable online database (or any other REST API data source).

Provides incremental partitioned reading of large tables of facts, such as sometimes:

  • stock movements
  • accounting notes
  • history of invoices issued and receipts
  • even detailed sales on invoice lines or products
  • manufacturing logs
  • quality logs

without having a significant  impact on the speed and frequency of refreshing analytical applications, while providing protection against overloading of servers (SQL, etc.) from which data is read.

It offers a more simplified approach to the challenges mentioned above, in QQpartitioning, for situations where the data sources are large in volume, but a little less overwhelming.

Transforming and delivering data sets in JSON format can be a major challenge, in particular:

  • if we are talking about large data sets.
  • if we must integrate data from multiple data sources, including heterogeneous sources as underline technology,
  • if we want a solution that allows rapid subsequent changes, using selections of options and not rewriting the whole processing code.

Immediate applications:

  • generating JSON sets that define automatic invoice creation based on incoming payments.
  • reporting commercial activity or inventory to suppliers & vendors

Transforming and delivering datasets into complex XLS and XLSX formats can be a major challenge, especially

  • if we are talking about large data sets,
  • integration of data from multiple data sources, including heterogeneous as technology,
  • if we want a solution that allows rapid subsequent changes, using selections of options and not rewriting processing code.

Immediate applications:

  • reporting commercial activity or inventory to suppliers & vendors
  • reporting commercial activity or inventory to suppliers & vendors

Transforming and delivering data sets in XML format can be a major challenge, in particular

  • if we are talking about large data sets,
  • if we must integrate data from multiple data sources, including heterogeneous as a technology,
  • if we want a solution that allows rapid subsequent changes, using selections of options and not rewriting processing code.

Immediate applications:

  • export in SAF-T format
  • generating XML sets that define automatic invoice creation based on incoming payments.

Repeatedly reading an XML data structure and mapping that data to a structured destination (database, or analytics system, or whatever) is very challenging when the XML structure is likely to change over time.

Our approach adds value by:

  • robust processing survives the appearance and disappearance of data substructures in the new XML data instance read subsequently
  • in addition, we identify, signal, and exhaustively exemplify the appearance of all new data structures, not yet mapped

Simultaneously associating a record in a database with a whole package of hierarchical belongings, but in which the inclusion of numerical values ​​is done only as a component, including with different arithmetic sign, is really a challenge of structuring and processing data. Most common place of application: P&L financial statements and Balance Sheet (profit and loss and balance sheet).

QQfallback™ is a tool that applies a set of configurable parameters that are defined through a fallback procedure. It is very useful for situation where a lot of entities requires a set of additional parameters to be managed manually. We developed a way to ease the effort by applying the management by exception.

Generic Solutions for collecting decisions directly in Qlik

Qlik™ is a decision support tool, and most of the times the taken decisions should be saved for further usage and transmission.

We strongly believe in the previous statement since 2005, when we became Qlik™. And since the solutions brought in time by Qlik™, haven’t been enough, we decided to develop further these functionalities.

After many attempts to use various borrowed solutions to directly introduce the Qlik™ interface the decisions (numerical or of any other nature) supported by the analytical interfaces we built over time, we decided to build our own Qlik™, our own Qlik™ extension care, which address this growing challenge and need.
