Qlik Drives Transformation to Cloud-First, SaaS-Based Analytics Platform With New Multi-Cloud and Augmented Intelligence Capabilities

Innovations and Extended Deployment Options All Available Under
Single License Model for Customer Flexibility and Choice

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Qonnections 2019 – Qlik
today outlined multiple innovations in multi-cloud and augmented
intelligence that are establishing Qlik as the leading enterprise,
SaaS-based analytics platform company. Built around the core Associative
Difference® in its data analytics platform and its
cloud-native, Kubernetes-based architecture, Qlik is now able to deliver
Qlik Sense® Enterprise exclusively on Qlik Cloud®
Services. This aligns the Qlik® analytics platform with
customers’ cloud-first corporate strategies, enabling unparalleled
deployment choice and flexibility and a seamless experience for users.
It also makes Qlik the leading modern BI and analytics platform vendor
to provide broad multi-cloud deployment options, all available under a
single subscription licensing model.

“Enterprises want insights at scale throughout their organization and
across their ecosystem, and need flexibility and choice when deploying
analytics. Qlik is meeting those needs head on with our latest
innovations in multi-cloud and augmented intelligence,” said Mike
Capone, Qlik CEO. “With our SaaS-based platform, Qlik delivers real-time
data and analytics to organizations where and how they need insights,
helping them lead with data when solving their most difficult

The multi-cloud and augmented intelligence enhancements in the April and
June releases of Qlik Sense Enterprise advance the central aspects of
Qlik’s vision for the 3rd generation of business intelligence: the
democratization of data, augmented intelligence and analytics embedded
everywhere. This vision demands that all data be available, requiring a
modern cloud-first approach to data discovery and delivery. It enables
increased data literacy through technology, augmenting users’ access and
consumption of data through the cloud. And it leverages SaaS-first
access to applications and data through the cloud to activate analytics
from the C-Suite to the edge of an organization. By democratizing data
and making it universally accessible through these models, an
enterprise’s analytics strategy can drive insights, improve
decision-making and transform the organization.

Multi-Cloud and SaaS-First – The Enterprise Choice for Analytics

Enterprises need an analytics platform that leverages the cloud across
the entire organization regardless of where data resides. Unlike many
vendors that dictate a cloud strategy based on their agenda instead of
their customers, Qlik is the only leading analytics vendor to provide
broad, multi-cloud deployment options, all available under a single
subscription licensing model.

Qlik is leading customers’ ability to achieve scale and discover
insights that drive significant transformation through our cloud-native,
Kubernetes-based architecture,” said Mike Potter, Qlik CTO. “Our unique
approach provides the flexibility, elasticity, and portability that
modern analytics use cases demand that directly impacts an
organization’s ability to leverage data for business results.”

With the latest release of Qlik Sense Enterprise, Qlik now enables users
to deploy Qlik Sense Enterprise entirely on Qlik Cloud Services, Qlik’s
SaaS environment. Additionally, businesses can choose to deploy Qlik
Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes in the public or private cloud of their
choice. And all deployment options for Qlik Sense Enterprise – including
Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows – now work cohesively as part of Qlik’s
multi-cloud deployment framework that can be managed as one instance.
Customers now truly have cloud analytics choice through a single
platform with Qlik. Additional features and benefits include:

  • Full certification on Google Cloud Platform, Amazon and Azure, with
    ability to support Red Hat OpenShift
  • Ability to deploy and manage multi-site, multi-cloud deployments as one
  • Deployment options with a new management experience that simplifies
    management of users, content and licenses across multiple environments
  • Simple subscription license model that incorporates both on-premise
    and cloud usage

Augmented Intelligence – Associative Insights Bring Hidden Meanings
in Data to Life

Building on its industry-leading augmented intelligence and
machine-learning capabilties, Qlik recently debuted a new integrated
element in its analytics platform called Associative Insights. This
powerful new feature combines Qlik’s associative and cognitive engines
to suggest hidden insights in data, directly expanding a user’s data
literacy by augmenting their intelligence as they explore their data.
The Qlik Associative Engine uniquely identifies data values that are unrelated
to a user’s selections or questions. The cognitive engine now can
analyze those unrelated values and reveal the most significant insights
that might have been overlooked. With Associative Insights, users are
prompted to ask new questions previously left unexplored, leading to
transformative new discoveries and “aha!” moments.

Associative Insights is the most recent example of Qlik’s commitment to
building augmented intelligence and machine learning directly into its
platform. This expands on existing capabilities such as Insight Advisor,
which auto-generates and suggests the best analytics and insights to
explore based on the overall data set and a user’s search criteria, and
Qlik’s precedent-based
machine learning
which allows the Qlik cognitive engine to get
smarter over time, continually learning from user interactions, feedback
and other input sources. Qlik’s augmented intelligence and
machine-learning capabilities are truly unique because they work
directly with Qlik’s associative engine, combining the power of AI with
human intuition.

Qlik Sense – The Platform for the Enterprise Analytics

The breadth and depth of Qlik Sense allows organizations to meet the
broadest range of analytics use cases from a single platform, leading to
consistent, data-driven decision making. The Qlik Sense June 2019
release will include innovations in augmented intelligence, including
expanded natural language search support for Insight Advisor and
expanded user reach for precedent-based learnings directly imported into
Qlik Cloud Services. Qlik Sense June 2019 will also include:

  • A suite of Qlik Sense SaaS products for groups and teams, with a
    seamless, digital trial path
  • Direct connections in the cloud to additional applications such as
    Salesforce and SAP
  • The ability to access QlikView® applications through Qlik’s
  • A Qlik Sense Mobile for Blackberry client and a containerized version
    of Qlik Sense Mobile built for Blackberry Dynamics EMM, supporting
    advanced management and security for BYOD (bring your own device)
  • Support for the Mobile Iron EMM platform, along with mobile
    collaboration with push notifications for Android and iOS applications

Qlik Sense Enterprise now also includes features that make it easier for
QlikView customers to adopt Qlik Sense for dual-use. This includes a new
unified licensing capability, which allows organizations to unlock both
QlikView and Qlik Sense with a single license key, and integrated links
to QlikView apps from select Qlik Sense environments. The integrated
links to QlikView apps from Qlik Sense environments provides customers
with a single place for their end users to go to access any Qlik app.
These features further Qlik’s efforts to make it as seamless as possible
for organizations using QlikView to add Qlik Sense to take advantage of
the latest innovations in Qlik’s overall platform.
