Qlik Sense is a business intelligence and a visual analytics platform that supports a range of use cases, including centrally deployed guided analytics apps and dashboards, custom and embedded analytics, and self-service visualisation. The solution comes in three different editions – Qlik Sense Desktop, Enterprise and Cloud.

This application is designed to retrieve, map and ingest metadata from a Qlik Sense instance into Collibra DGC using the Collibra DGC Connector.

To achieve this we need to transform the inbound source Documents, along with its Sheets, Dimensions, Measures, Variables, Bookmarks and Data Connections from Qlik Sense into objects that the Collibra Data Dictionary will recognise.

The Qlik Sense Integration serves the following use cases (among others):

  • Increased trust and data citizen engagement around data streams that pass through, are collected by or are produced in Qlik Sense.
  • Enhanced data lineage diagrams, data dictionaries and business glossaries. In many cases data is captured, transformed and sourced from Qlik Sense with little documentation.
  • The data centre can track changes in Qlik Sense metadata in order to plan and engage with relevant business process owners accordingly.
