Project – QlikView Dashboard creation using 3 principles of DAR
Topics – This project involves understanding the concepts of the QlikView Dashboard, Analysis, Reporting (DAR) methodology to creating and building of QlikView applications. This way you can reuse your earlier QlikView Worksheets with minimal changes thus saving you time and effort. You will have hands-on experience in designing the Dashboard, creating Analysis Page and ultimately develop the QlikView Reports with DAR implementation. You will learn about the business overview, deploying user-driven controls for data filters and reporting of specific details in this QlikView Dashboard project.
