This module will introduce the topic of QVD files, which are used as a data source for Qlik applications. The three main use cases for QVD files are: increased app development; reduce stress on the data source and provide data synchronicity; and facilitate incremental load.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what QVD files are
  • Learn how to use QVD files and explore the benefits
  • Create and load QVD files
  • Examine security aspects when using QVD files
  • Implement a QVD layer structure for optimal document development and load performance
  • Recommendations for unofficial use cases like archiving and data warehousing

This course is no longer being updated to later versions of QlikView. However, the course topic is still relevant and will apply to the current release of the software.
