Data is certainly the most discussed aspect of any application integration into an existing process landscape. And it is an important aspect of qashqade as well.Therefore the qashqade application provides a comprehensive data management functionality which will allow you to keep the oversight of your data and even more to create new data to test your hypothesis and scenarios – without interference to your actual data which is still used operationally.
