Qlik announces analytics upgrade to Qlik Sense
The company unveiled the latest update during the recent Qonnections 2017 customer and partner event.
Qlik, a provider of visual analytics software, recently previewed the latest release of its Qlik Sense platform. Powered by the QIX Associative Indexing Engine, Qlik showcased new functionalities of the platform at the recent Qonnections 2017 customer and partner event.
Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products, said: "Qlik pioneered the category for user-driven, governed self-service BI. With Qlik Sense, we continue to expand the market by creating a scalable, secure, and cloud-ready platform that organisations can consider the centrepiece of their enterprise-wide BI deployment."
"Our platform approach allows us to address a breadth of use cases with more depth than other offerings. The openness of the underlying platform expands opportunities for custom analytics apps, embedded BI, and developer innovation leveraging new technologies like artificial intelligence and natural language generation."
As part of its presentations at Qonnections 2017, Qlik showcased the new advanced predictive analytics integration capability that is geared for direct data exchange between the QIX engine and third-party calculation engines. The company has reportedly also release integrations with their interface for R and Python, which in turn enables advanced calculations with external tools to be visualised with Qlik Sense.
One of the newest editions to Qlik Portfolio is the Qlik GeoAnalytics, which allows Qlik Sense and QlikeView users to add maps to their respective apps. Coupled with automatic geo-data lookup, users can access to crucial special information that is then display in different types of visualisation formats suited to the needs of the business.
"With our industry-leading global partner network at the ready to bring these solutions to market and our rapidly growing community of developers, we've hit an exciting point in the next phase of industry leadership, extending beyond visual analytics," added Deighton.
