Another release, another reason why Qlik is leading the 3rd Generation
With the launch of Qlik Sense Business and enhancements to Qlik Sense Enterprise in our September 2019 release we have again underlined why Qlik, the largest independent data and analytics vendor in the market, is leading the 3rd generation of BI and analytics.
Qlik Sense Business is Qlik’s latest offering supporting our cloud and SaaS strategy. This new edition of Qlik Sense is designed to empower users to get started quickly and easily without complexity. Qlik Sense Business shares the same cloud-native architecture as Qlik Sense Enterprise and is hosted on Qlik Cloud Services – which is Qlik’s highly-scalable, trusted and secure SaaS environment.
In addition to the launch of Qlik Sense Business, we have made several enhancements to Qlik Sense. We have added Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities to the Qlik Cognitive Engine, supporting natural language search in Insight Advisor. This capability allows users to more intuitively interact with Qlik Sense when exploring data sets and generating insights. Going forward, we plan to expand natural language interaction into more areas of Qlik Sense.
With this release, we have also enhanced our Advanced Authoring capabilities and added new visualization capabilities including a variance waterfall chart and location awareness in mapping. For mobility, we have improved EMM support for MobileIron and added support for the new iPadOS, and we are excited to announce that we now have integrated connectivity to Snowflake, helping to strengthen Qlik’s strategic alliance with a leading enterprise-ready cloud-based Data Warehouse.
For value-added products, we improved Qlik NPrinting with new authoring functionality supporting our customer’s journey allowing Qlik to be the enterprise standard for reporting and analytics. And the next release of the Qlik Associative Big Data Index will enable our customers to visually explore big data sources using new visualization and chart options.
Finally, we also launched another newproduct: Qlik Data Catalyst for QVDs – which is a streamlined offering of Qlik Data Catalyst specially focused on making it easier for existing Qlik customers to understand, catalog and consume QVD files.
As we look to the next release in November, be assured that we will continue to deliver innovative new capabilities supporting our leadership position in the industry. Stay tuned!
