Discover everything you need to know about Qlik Sense, a powerful business intelligence tool. Learn how Qlik Sense empowers organizations to unlock insights, make data-driven decisions, and drive business growth.

When it comes to data analysis, Qlik Sense is currently the most talked-about data analytics platform, not least thanks to its greatest asset: its data visualization tools. Indeed, in terms of data-driven decision-making and reporting (in addition to QlikView), Qlik Sense offers end-users the very best at their fingertips for creating and managing interactive dashboards.

What is Qlik Sense?

Qlik Sense is a data visualization solution, but also a BI (Business Intelligence) solution developed by the publisher Qlik and launched in 2014. From data integration to visualization, it facilitates the analysis and gathering of information from Big Data’s exploitable data sources. In this sense, revealing relevant information is much simpler, making it easier to share knowledge.

What’s more, Qlik Sense makes the task of processing and understanding data less arduous, as analysis can be carried out in groups thanks to its associative engine.

What’s more, it’s easier to find answers to the questions companies ask themselves, thanks to a more summary process, enabling them to deduce their own conclusions.


What are the differences between Qlik Sense and QlikView?

In general, both applications are very effective when it comes to extracting information from data. But while they offer very similar user experiences, there are a few differences.

Qlik Sense is a more intuitive and easy-to-use tool than QlikView. The latter offers a more guided user experience, reducing the freedom of analysis somewhat.

For users who want to start with predefined analyses, QlikView is the best option. Qlik Sense is better suited to users who want to create their own analyses.

Why Qlik Sense?

Like QlikView, Qlik Sense offers numerous options for data analysis. In fact, this dataviz solution has nothing but advantages:

  • Facilitates data analysis by enabling data integration from different sources, whether databases, operational systems, data sheets or web data.
  • Intuitive, thanks to its drag-and-drop function, which makes work much easier and faster for the user.
  • Allows you to create interactive dashboards, making data storytelling far more comprehensible to the stakeholders responsible for decision-making.
  • The various presentations, whether tables or diagrams, are interconnected to present decision-makers with quality diagrams and much more precise information.
  • A responsive design that enables users to work on any device (computer, smartphone or tablet) and have their data interpretations available, anywhere.

Qlik cognitive engine: what is it?

Qlik Sense has undergone a major transformation in its latest version, and now incorporates a cognitive engine based on new Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence capabilities. This enables the cognitive engine to become more intelligent over time, continually learning from user interaction and other sources.

These new Qlik Sense Machine Learning capabilities are primarily intended for use in Qlik Insight Advisor, so that the latter can generate and suggest the best analyses and information to be explored through insights in a fully automated way.

The process depends entirely on the user’s data set and search criteria. In this way, it is possible to suggest relevant information to be presented to stakeholders. This is where Machine Learning comes into its own, as it learns from the user’s analytical interactions.

Users can train the Machine Learning algorithms through manual creation of analyses, modification of the cognitive engine’s suggestions and feedback. The cognitive engine also learns from additional reliable and governed sources such as business rules defined in global libraries and Qlik artifacts.

What is a SaaS?

Cloud services are classified into three types: IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

In the case of software as a service (SaaS), a provider offers software or applications in the cloud to interested customers, including companies in all sectors. In this way, those organizations that need the program for a certain purpose don’t need a local IT infrastructure on which to install it. They can easily access it via a web browser.

Previously, installing software on a computer required the use of a CD, not to mention all the energy wasted on constant updates and maintenance by professionals in the field. A SaaS service emancipates itself from all these difficulties. The supplier provides all software updates free of charge.


How does Qlik Sense SaaS work?

Qlik Sense is a data analysis platform packed with innovative features. Its SaaS version is divided into two categories: Qlik Sense Business and Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS.

Cloud data applications are important factors in a company’s development and growth, and to achieve the best results, it’s essential to have tools capable of optimizing analysis.
