Using Stats NZ Maps in Qlik

As I mentioned in my last post we have loaded the KML into Qlik Sense but it's not that useful as the Name field is missing and being populated with an automatically generated value p<rownumber>. If you open the KML file in a text editor you will see that for...

Qlik Sense Desktop – Loading QVD

SAML Proof of concept – Part 1

The minimal proof of concept for any SAML solution is to secure two different websites with SAML. For this I decided to secure an off the shelf SAML ready product we had already installed (Qlik Sense) and a simple bespoke application running on Apache. This blog cover...
