Thirty issues solved
QlikTech, the developer of the Business Intelligence software QlikView BI, has released version 11.2. In this version there are still thirty known issues at release time. QlikTech expect to solve them in the coming versions. More than two hundred bugs were solved in Service Release 2.
Limitations of QlikView 11.2
In the release notes of QlikView 11.2 the company also provides a list of product features. These are limitations of the product and are not likely to change in next product releases. One limitation is that ‘undo’ functionality does not work on notes and comments. When a note or comment is deleted, it is removed permanently. Most of the other limitations have to do with AJAX, Java, (mobile) browsers versions, charts and colors.
The macro script debugger for ETL has been removed from the product. QlikTech says that Microsoft no longer supports it.
Offline views on iPad
Compared to release 11.0 this version now supports offline working with a mobile client (iPad only). The user can use the iPad to select a number of bookmarks and only one list box, and all the data behind it is downloaded to the device. Interactivity is fairly limited when users work offline. This nice feature is only supported in 64-bit environments.
QlikView BI provides Business Intelligence tools for Data Discovery, simple reporting and Business Analytics. Their dashboard tools are powerful and easy-to-use.
