Integration of Qlik Sense and Downtime Alert

Qlik Sense is one of the latest products of QlikTech. It is both a self-service BI top and an analytics platform. It has many features like

  • It provides real time data analysis capabilities.
  • It can be used for both online and offline use.
  • It has more than 200 connectors to various database management systems, web services, cloud applications, and third party sputions.
  • It is comparatively less expensive than other BI platforms.

However it has one drawback that it does not have downtime alert feature which can be very useful in critical situations like production downtimes. So, this paper will mainly focus on the integration of Downtime Alert with Qlik Sense in order to overcome Qlik Sense’s drawbacks.

  • Integration of Downtime Alert with Qlik Sense
  • Downtime Alert is a software that monitors the servers in a data center and provides critical alerts in case of any server downtime. Currently it can monitor up to 1000 servers. It also gives alerts in case of hypervisor downtime, hypervisor problems, switch down alert, network down alert etc. It can send email or text message alerts in case of any critical situations. In the future releases, it will provide SMS alerts as well.

    Qlik Sense has many advantages over other BI platforms but there is a big drawback that it does not have a downtime alert feature. So, in order to overcome this drawback, it is necessary to integrate Downtime Alert with Qlik Sense in order to get alerts for critical server downtimes from Downtime Alert and trigger the automatic system recovery process from Qlik Sense.

    In order to integrate Downtime Alert with Qlik Sense, we need to take fplowing steps:

    • Configure Downtime Alert for sending notifications to Qlik Sense via webhooks whenever server problems occur so that critical server downtimes can be notified to Qlik Sense and Qlik Sense can trigger automatic system recovery process.
    • Configure Qlik Sense for receiving notifications from Downtime Alert and triggering automatic system recovery process (which restores the affected servers.

So, we need to do fplowing steps. (1. Configure webhooks for Downtime Alert (2. Configure notification channel for Qlik Sense (3.
