Qlik, a provider of visual analytics tools, is updating its Qlikview platform to strengthen its analytics capabilities.
“Qlik has really been leading and pioneering in the market of business intelligence and data discovery since it was founded over 20 years ago,” said James Fisher, vice president of global product marketing. “Qlikview 12 is really the first generation of our data discovery solution in the market. We’ve been hugely successful really differentiating that solution around the power of our associative model which powers our underlying engine.”
Qlikview version 12 brings QlikView onto the same modern QIX Associative Data Indexing Engine (QIX) that powers Qlik Sense. The update is available immediately and QlikView 12 Personal Edition is available for free download at http://www.qlik.com/download.
By having Qlik’s complete product portfolio on the same engine, Qlik will deliver greater compatibility between its products and ensure that future investments made in the QIX engine for performance, security, and connectivity will benefit both QlikView and Qlik Sense customers.
Other features include a next-generation QIX engine, security enhancements such as stronger encryption and improved encryption handling, a powerful mobile experience and true device independence, improved clustering that upgrades scalability to support more nodes in a QlikView Server cluster, native connection to Web services such as social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), CMS systems (Alfresco, Documentum, Adobe), and other online services, and free and subscription-based data-as-a-service.
“This is a really important milestone for us, long awaited by our customers, and is really something which I believe is a real foundation for our long term strategy and differentiation in this market in terms of a platform based approach to visual analytics,” Fisher said.
