What is Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs?

A fully searchable catalog enables data consumers to easily find and select the QVDs they need without having to navigate complex folder hierarchies or rely on file naming conventions.

While QVD files (QVDs) offer many benefits to both QlikView and Qlik Sense users, it can be a significant effort to organize and optimize the many QVD files that a customer has created. It can also be difficult to find, understand, or provision QVDs across multiple Qlik applications and user communities.

Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs is a new streamlined offering of Qlik Data Catalyst that is specially focused on making QVDs easier to discover, understand and consume. With Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs, customers are able to easily catalog and profile QVD files to create a fully searchable catalog, allowing data consumers to easily find and select the QVDs they need without navigating complex folder hierarchies or relying on file naming conventions.

Note: Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs is a separate offering from the full-featured Qlik Data Catalyst which can already catalog QVD files, including the ability to publish QVD file content to any application or BI tool.
