With an ever-growing number of companies around the world needing to build out their data estate on the Microsoft platform to get to data insights faster, TimeXtender has announced a new partnership with QlickiT, Helping you drive innovation with your data.

This agreement with TimeXtender, a recognized global software company enabling instant access to any type of data in the organization to support advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), allows QlickiT to offer its existing and future customers across United Kingdom Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender.

Discovery Hub® is a high-performance data management platform, anchored on automation, that accelerates time to data insights by up to 10 times. It allows an organization to connect to various data sources, and catalog, model, move and report on the full lifecycle of data – in a single, integrated application that supports core analytics, the modern data warehouse, IoT, AI and more.

“QlickiT has been helping companies for many years with their data platform needs and we’re always looking for innovative ways to upgrade and modernize their data infrastructures,” said John Elliott, Managing Director, QlickiT. “With our new partnership with TimeXtender, we’ve found a way to do just that. Discovery Hub® simplifies and strengthens the creation and management of an organization’s data infrastructure. With Discovery Hub®, businesses can eliminate using a patchwork of tools and move to a complete and modern data management platform. We look forward to offering this technology platform to our customers.”

TimeXtender Discovery Hub® is Microsoft Azure certified and designed to give users instant access to their data in the cloud. Developed with a cloud-first mindset, Discovery Hub® provides a cohesive data fabric across Microsoft on-premise technology and Azure Data Services, creating a future-proof, modern data estate that evolves with technology advancements.

“TimeXtender and QlickiT share a common desire in helping customers move from using disparate tools for cataloging, modeling, moving and documenting data to using a complete data management platform,” said Heine Krog Iversen, CEO of TimeXtender. “By partnering with TimeXtender, QlickiT can offer their customers Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender across United Kingdom to help companies automate and simplify the building of their data estate by using our single, integrated platform. This results in a dramatic reduction in costs and accelerating time to data insights. We’re excited to help QlickiT across United Kingdom.”

Reload Log File Dates and Times - Qlikview November 2018 onwards.

Please see the following notice from Qlik re the stamping and naming of log files with Dates and Times.

https://support.qlik.com/articles/000060298

The effect of this many of you will not notice until you start looking at your logs and start thinking that your jobs have started an hour earlier. Please be aware that this is an intended behaviour from Qlik. They have stopped recording the times based on the server time, which will take into account Summer Time changes and now only record the actual UTC time (Co-ordinated Universal time) which is GMT regardless of summer time. In winter we will have the correct time and in summer it will be one hour behind the actual time in the UK. Anyone outside of UTC+00:00 will be completely different.

Qlik Sense has always used UTC time for the time in the log files and therefore there is no change but you may have wondered why it was always an hour out in summer, this is why.

Note this does not affect the actual time that it runs just the time shown in the log. A job scheduled to run at 2pm will run at 2pm (14:00) but the log file will show 1pm (13:00) in summer 2pm(14:00) in winter.

Qlik acquires CrunchBot and Crunch Data

Natural language AI bot CrunchBot has been acquired by Qlik. The bot enables users to ask questions of their data in a conversational manner in Qlik Sense or on popular communication platforms like Skype. Alongside that product, Qlik have also acquired the AI experts at Crunch Data. It is fantastic that Qlik continue to invest in powerful new technologies, enhancing the ability of employees to (in this case, quite literally) converse with data. Their continued focus on the power of AI and data literacy is exciting, keeping Qlik on the bleeding edge of visual analytics. You can find the media take on the acquisition here.

What does it mean for me?

CrunchBot is available today as a value-added solution to Qlik Sense. Read more about that here. Like previous acquisitions, CrunchBot will be incorporated into the core Qlik Sense product, in this case enhancing the existing insight advisor functionality. Previous acquisition, Podium Data, has undergone a similar process and is available as Qlik Data Catalyst, which accelerates the delivery of trustworthy, actionable data.
