Loading and modeling analytics data
You need to add data sources before you can create sheets and visualizations in a Qlik Sense app. Data sources can be added in the hub or in an app.
Qlik Sense supports datasets and data connections. Datasets can be:
- Uploaded once and never modified.
- Replaced or refreshed with net new changes.
Data connections provide ways to access data sources you commonly use whether they are databases, local files, or remote files.
Once your data sources are added, you can load the data into an app and build your data model. You can take advantage of Insight Advisor’s analysis-based recommendations for associating tables and building data models, or you can create your own associations and joins. You can manage and modify the data from datasets and data connections once they are added in an app.
