Data Integration: Improvements in Endpoint Support and Talend Cloud Integration
Enhancements this month focus on changes to support for both data sources and data targets. With the acquisition of Talend, these updates enable users to bring their Talend and Qlik Cloud closer together. Here is a breakdown of the key highlight improvements over the last month.
1. Publishing Dataset and Field Level Lineage
In a similar fashion to Qlik Cloud Analytics, Qlik Cloud Catalog allows for Qlik Cloud Data Integration users to have oversight across the areas of Data Lineage and Impact Analysis. Users can now assess the impact of changes to any artefacts within a Data Integration project. This will allow users to highlight and proactively resolve any issues arising from changes to artefacts.
2. Enhanced Support for PostgreSQL-based Data Sources
Enhanced data type support for Multirange data types now include INT4MULTIRANGE, INT8MULTIRANGE, NUMMULTIRANGE, and TSMULTIRANGE. This enhancement opens out the support for a wider range of data types for customers wishing to use PostgreSQL as a data source.
3. New Support for Data Source and Target Versions
In a continuation to the point of supported and unsupported data sources and target, the following data source and target versions are now supported:
- Microsoft SQL Server 2022
- Oracle 21c
- PostgreSQL 15.x
- DB2 13.1 (when working with IDM DB2 for z/OS)
- IBM DB2 for iSeries 7.5
The following data target versions are now supported:
- Databricks (Cloud Storage): Databricks 12.2 LTS and Databricks SQL Serverless
The ongoing changes to the supported data source and data target versions ensure that Qlik can continue to support customers with their needs around their required data sources and targets.
4. Enabling a link to Talend Cloud from Qlik Cloud
Customers who have an existing Talend Cloud tenant can now enable Talend Cloud as an item from the launcher menu in Qlik Cloud, enabling users to navigate with ease between the two products. Further information on this can be found on the Qlik help site. This will allow users of both Talend and Qlik Cloud to navigate between the two products with ease.
5. New Regions Support
Data Sovereignty can be an issue to customers who are based in certain regions. Qlik Cloud Data Integration now supports tenants in Germany and the UK regions. This will make the adoption of the Qlik Cloud Data Integration platform easier for users in these countries who wish to use both the Qlik Cloud Analytics and the Integration platforms.
6. End of Support Data Source and Target Versions
To ensure Qlik remains supporting the most current and up-to-date data source targets and version, the following source versions have been discontinued:
- PostgreSQL 10
- MySQL 5.6
- MariaDB 10.3
Similarly, support for the following data target versions have been discontinued:
