What is QlikView?
QlikView® is Qlik’s proven data discovery solution for creating rapidly developed, highly interactive guided analytics applications and dashboards, purpose built for business challenges. Built on the patented QIX engine, the unique associative model in QlikView allows everyone to freely explore all their data, across all their data sources, to see the whole story instead of just the partial views offered by query based or hierarchical tools.
With Qlik’s patented Associative Data Indexing technology at its core, QlikView delivers:
Purpose-Built, Guided Analytics Apps
QlikView offers interactive dashboards and analytic apps, purpose built by developers, that guide the user to discovery. Users can take advantage of highly polished apps with customized user experiences, specific to business problems. QlikView apps offer a beautiful, pixel perfect user experience, delivered through any browser, that can be customized for complex use cases and solutions while still allowing for an unmatched level of interactivity and discovery.
Qlik’s Associative Model for exploration and search
Qlik’s Associative Model allows everyone to see the whole story that lives within their data. Users of all skill levels can explore freely, probing the possible associations in their data using simple selections and searches, without restrictions or boundaries. After each click, the patented QIX engine instantly recalculates all analytics to the current context and highlights data relationships using easy-to-understand color cues: green (selected), white (associated), and gray (unrelated). Users benefit from this speed-of-thought feedback every time they ask a question, allowing them to gain understanding and take next steps.
Advanced analytics and visualization
Users can evaluate information and solve problems using a variety of visualizations, and perform advanced analyses such as comparative analysis and what-if-analysis through simple interactions. QlikView visualizations include a variety representations such as trellis and spark line, and advanced analytics such as comparative and what-if allow for users themselves to select data sets and context for scenarios.
Collaborative analytics for sharing insight
Social data discovery
QlikView allows users to work in groups and teams to analyze information, both synchronously and asynchronously, using session sharing for live meetings and annotations for offline discussion. Annotations allow users to append discussion threads to visualizations with context, and live session sharing allows for multiple users to access the same QlikView session together, with full interactivity. This means more people working together to make better decisions.
Online and offline mobile apps
QlikView provides access to apps on mobile devices through the browser and the QlikView for iOS app, which allows for online and offline use. QlikView on Mobile provides access to the same apps with unrestricted exploration on any mobile device, and the QlikView for iOS app offers the best of both worlds – full interactivity when connected and downloaded views for offline access. Mobile users can access information and analytics while on the go, even working offline on iPad, allowing them to solve more problems as they arise.
Qlik NPrinting reporting
With NPrinting, users and organizations can generate and distribute Microsoft Office and pixel perfect reports using data and analytics from QlikView. Qlik NPrinting supports a variety of Office and pixel perfect formats, with broad, managed distribution and on-demand access, allowing QlikView to serve as the standard for both interactive analytics and reporting.
