Using Qlik (Attunity) Connect on OpenVMS? Let us know.
This message is for all Qlik (Attunity) Connect customers running on OpenVMS.
As you will be aware, Qlik announced last July that they would no longer be developing this product and that support for the product would finish in December this year (2021). Recently we have been contacted by a number of interested parties, wondering if VSI was going to offer some kind of alterative solution and/or support for these customers.
As a result of that interest, we have held conversations with Qlik, where they explained the rationale behind their decision. We also took the opportunity to discuss on-going support, and Qlik stated that they had no issue with VSI providing L1/L2 support for the product (no engineering support).
Unfortunately, we do not have a comprehensive list of Connect customers on OpenVMS, so I am asking those customers to contact VSI by sending an email to email@example.com. We can then discuss our plans for Connect on OpenVMS going forward and see if they actually align with customer requirements (some simple market research).
Any questions, please feel free to contact me directly or use the email address above.
