Reporting solution for Qlik Sense SaaS
Qalyptus Cloud completes Qlik Sense SaaS with reporting capabilities. It offers the possibility to design custom reports and distribute them in different standard formats to unlimited recipients.
This article will introduce Qalyptus Cloud and how to move to Qlik Sense SaaS when you have NPrinting.
1. Qalyptus Cloud
1-1. Works with Qlik Sense SaaS
Qalyptus Cloud is a multi-tenancy solution hosted by Qalyptus and compatible with Qlik Sense Business and Enterprise. Your Qalyptus tenant has its database and files storage space. No installation is required or infrastructure to manage.
1-2. Advanced capabilities to design reports
Qalyptus Cloud allows you to design reports using your preferred tools. Get the power of Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and HTML to create pixel-perfect reports and answer your users’ questions.
Use your native or third-party (extensions) Qlik Sense visualizations in the report as an image or data table. Qalyptus will generate the report by receiving the image placeholder size and the table design. You are in control.
1-3. Distribute reports with confidence
Use your SMTP server to distribute reports to an unlimited number of users. Send the same report to all recipients or a filtered one for each recipient to see only the data to with he is entitled.
1-4. Advanced permission management
Qalyptus Cloud has a very detailed permission management system. Different roles exist to define user rights.
You can decide which permissions you want to give to each user for each element (task, report, filter, etc.).
2. Move to Qlik Sense SaaS when you have NPrinting
When you have NPrinting with Qlik Sense for Windows and want to move to Qlik Sense SaaS, you need to migrate your Qlik Sense for Windows to the Qlik Cloud platform and use an alternative to NPrinting because NPrinting is not compatible with Qlik Sense Cloud.
2.1 Migrate Qlik Sense for Windows to Qlik Sense SaaS
Migrating to Qlik Sense SaaS is not plug-and-play as many things are not handled the same way, including data connection, security management, and authentication mechanisms.
We recommend you follow the instructions described in the Migrate to Qlik Cloud section in the Qlik Help.
To understand the main differences between the two Qlik Sense SaaS editions (Business and Enterprise), we recommend you to read our article: Qlik Sense Business or Qlik Sense Enterprise? Which one is most suitable for you?
2.2 Use Qalyptus for your reporting with Qlik Sense SaaS
Using Qalyptus with Qlik Sense SaaS when you already have NPrinting allows you to reproduce almost all of your reports. In addition to integrating nearly all the features of NPrinting, Qalyptus offers more advanced reporting possibilities and unequaled ease of use.
The good news is that you can reuse your existing NPrinting report template files (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and HTML). All you need to do is replace the NPrinting shortcodes and image placeholders with the Qalyptus ones.
You can export your recipients from NPrinting and import them from an Excel file. If you defined filters for users, forget them. In Qalyptus, it is very easy to filter reports per user. You don’t need a complex configuration to send a filtered report to users. In Qalyptus, the process is very simple and doesn’t need any configuration or maintenance; a simple Qlik Sense variable is enough 😉 Learn more here.
The governance in Qalyptus is more advanced than NPrinting; you can define access and assign roles to users very finely (read, create, delete, execute, etc.). You will love it! Learn more here.
Switching to Qlik Sense SaaS and Qalyptus Cloud will not impact recipients who receive reports generated from Qlik Sense for Windows and NPrinting.
