Change is constant!
Aaaaarch… let’s pretend that is what you said the last time you lost some work due to IT issues, server reset’s, replaced files, session closures and the worst of all… that illusive delete button.
The challenge with company IT backup policies are the levels. They can generally provide you with a database backup not a file backup. This would be 80% of our assessments.
One of our customer’s we assessed actually did replace a file by accident and has this exact challenge which is everyone would need to export their work, run the backup of the total database, everybody needs to import their work back into Qlik Sense. There really should be an easier way and we have created it!
- System/Database level backups
- Takes about a day+ to restore a backup minimum
- Generally many people involved as it may require others to export and reimport their work post the restore process
- Costly process with support, IT, development and business staff involvement
- May require multiple sign-offs for regulatory requirements
- The process is not without it’s nuances… generally
