Qlik is a market leader in the field of Business Discovery. As a company, it has been a pioneer when it comes to rapid returns on investment on business intelligence implementations. Its flagship product “QlikView” has been amongst the leaders in Gartner’s magic quadrant for the past three consecutive years. This bears testimony to the fact that Qlik and its offerings have a wide-scale acceptability among business users. The world of Business Intelligence has seen a paradigm shift over the last couple of years. With an increased level of market understanding and learning from customer experiences, Qlik has made significant developments in its product suite to suit the changing market demands.
With the evolving business scenario in mind, Qlik came up with “Qlik Sense®” in mid2014. Qlik Sense® is a self service data visualization platform; users can design their own applications using the simple drag and drop interface in Qlik Sense®. They can directly create their own applications on the web and share them through a centralized hub. A Qlik Sense® application can even be shared in the cloud. A real thought process has been put into the development of Qlik Sense® according to what the businesses of today require. For example, there is a native “Map” object available in Qlik Sense® which stems from the need for Map extensions. The end users can edit the properties of the objects on the screen directly through the interface. The “Qlik Dev Hub” provides a fast and easy approach to create extensions. In a way, Qlik Sense® gives the authority of the app to the end user and asks them to do their own data discovery in their own bespoke way.
