Qlik Strengthens Visualization and Data Preparation Abilities

Qlik is unveiling the next version of its Qlik Sense Enterprise platform, combing enterprise readiness and governance with visualization and data preparation capabilities, according to the company.

“Qlik built the category for user-driven, self-service BI. With Qlik Sense, we continue to expand the market by creating a scalable, secure, and extensible platform that organizations can consider the centerpiece of their enterprise-wide BI deployment,” said Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products.

Qlik Sense Enterprise 3.0 improves upon the platform’s management and administration capabilities to support IT with more effective auditing, configuration, and governance for broad multi-geography deployments.

New user interface enhancements in the Qlik Management Console (QMC) provide configuration options for content and resources that drive quicker deployments  and proper use of apps, objects, and data. Additionally, Qlik Sense Enterprise is now in Korean, Polish, Traditional Chinese, and Turkish.

 “Our platform approach allows us to address such a breadth of use cases with more depth than other offerings,” Deighton said. “The openness of our platform expands opportunities for custom analytics apps, embedded BI, and developer innovation.”

Users will also benefit from new visual search capabilities that allow them to search across charts and data. Visual exploration capabilities now allow users to explore and discover insights in analyses using governed metrics and dimensions.

Collaboration is a key focus of this release, with the platform including a storytelling feature that allows data stories to be directly published to Microsoft Office and PDF.

In addition, Qlik NPrinting, which previously supported only QlikView, now supports Qlik Sense with new centralized pixel perfect reporting to create visually-appealing reports.

In addition to these deep upgrades, Qlik is releasing Qlik Sense Cloud Business.

This will enable anyone, from small and medium-sized businesses to individuals and workgroups within an enterprise, to create, manage, and collaborate with visual analytics in the cloud.

"At Qlik we see an exciting opportunity for cloud-based value-added services to optimize the visual analytics experience” Deighton said. “Likewise, because people do not make decisions alone, sharing in the cloud will always be an important part of our collaboration strategy.”
