Qlik previewed Qlik Sense Enterprise 2.0, its newest release of its platform-based approach to business intelligence (BI) available in June 2015. Qlik Sense Enterprise, as the company claims, spans use cases across the organization ranging from self-service data visualization, to reporting and dashboards, to guided analytics, and embedded analytics, all based on the patented QIX Associative Indexing Engine. At its Qonnections Global Partner Summit, Qlik previewed functionality in areas of self-service data preparation, integrated reporting, and new visualizations.
“Qlik Sense has the potential to expand our business intelligence use case,” said CIO of Omnicom Media Group France, Vincent Cadoret, “Qlik Sense expands the co-creation with the end user, with more self-service possibilities and storytelling while keeping the power of the associativity engine of Qlik and reusing the data models of our existing QlikView applications. Storytelling is very interesting for proving value: it helps to drive a narrative without getting lost in a sea of data. For example, we’re interested in Qlik Sense storytelling for regular steering committees we have with clients to update on media productivity insights and trends.”
Qlik Sense can scale to meet all the needs of businesses as they grow, while maintaining the trust, security and governance that business requires. Qlik Sense was built from the ground up to deliver beautiful visualizations and ease of use for individuals, mobile and collaborative functionality for groups and teams, and enterprise class governance and manageability for the organization.
Current visualization tools provide ease of use for the Excel user, but they are not designed to scale, lack data governance and enterprise-class management. Qlik brings a completely different perspective to the BI market through its unique platform approach, giving everyone the ability to answer not just ‘what happened?’, but ‘why?’, as well as providing insight into ‘what is likely to happen.’
“Qlik Sense combines the productivity of personal self-service visual data discovery with the security, scalability, and governance features of production-grade, enterprise-wide BI,” said Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products. “This best-of-both-worlds strategy bridges the gap between fast, interactive visual analytics tools and powerful, large-scale production BI stacks.”
