Automating Qlik documentation with NodeGraph

Industry: Healthcare/Hospital
Organization size: >3300 employees with ~100 Qlik apps
Years using QlikView: since 2011
Challenge: Efficiently establishing and maintaining data transparency
Solution: Automating Qlik documentation with NodeGraph

In collaboration with NodeGraph Partner Heyde

Introduction

This case story explores the ways in which NodeGraph helped Heyde’s customer establish and maintain data transparency by automating their Qlik documentation. The customer in question is an organization operating in the healthcare/hospital industry with over 3 300 employees. Their QlikView environment consists of ~10 different data sources, ~100 Qlik apps, and lots of dependencies. Read on to find out more.

Challenge: Efficiently establishing and maintaining data transparency

The healthcare organization in question was facing the challenge of establishing and maintaining data transparency in a cost- and time-effective manner. As Marc Kaiser, BI & Architect & Partner at Heyde explains, their only option prior to implementing NodeGraph was to manually document their Qlik Solution.

“Before NodeGraph, we actually suggested [that the customer] document step-by-step and we then had to issue quotes for that documentation process and that’s usually where the customer stopped because it was so intense to document everything.”

Solution: Automating Qlik documentation with NodeGraph

The solution to the challenge was simple. By using NodeGraph’s automated documentation feature, the customer was able to drastically minimize the cost and time needed to maintain regular documentation of their QlikView Solution. So how does this work? With the click of a button, NodeGraph collects all the node comments, metadata, tables, fields, related files and database statements for the chosen application into one single document. This way, the organization in questions will always be up-to-date and in the know. And, most importantly, they never have to manually document ever again.

“NodeGraph helps us with basically one license and one install, and everything is done within minutes..”
