Qlik Sense is a data analytics platform that processes data in a special way using its own Associative Engine. Three distributions are available—the Desktop version is hosted locally, the Business version is hosted by Qlik (SaaS), and the Enterprise version can be deployed on both on-premise and cloud sites.
MANTA’s scanner can now connect to a Qlik Sense Desktop or Enterprise server; extract the metadata necessary for data flow analysis; process essential Load Script statements, which define how data is loaded into a Qlik Sense application and how it is transformed; and analyze the usage of the data loaded from physical data sources in visualizations used in the applications’ sheets.
