Qlik today announced Qlik Sense® Business, the latest offering supporting its cloud-first, SaaS strategy. Qlik Sense Business is a new version of Qlik Sense that provides a simple and fast path for customers of any size to access the world-class analytics of Qlik’s patented Associative Indexing technology. The new product is the first and only pure SaaS offering that brings the power of the 3rd generation of data and analytics to small business and groups, accelerating their journey to modern analytics more quickly and with greater ROI than any other offering in the market.
“Qlik is driving the third generation of business intelligence software with our cloud-first, enterprise SaaS analytics platform,” said Mike Potter, Qlik CTO. “Qlik Sense Business extends the opportunity to lead with data to any organization that wants to get started quickly with enterprise-grade analytics. With the core benefits of Qlik Sense and our cloud-native architecture, Qlik Sense Business helps any organization rapidly improve data literacy and data-driven decision making with a built-in upgrade path that grows their analytics alongside their business.”
Qlik Sense Business leverages the latest technology to provide a richer analytical experience than the prior Qlik Sense Cloud Business offering, the solution this new offering replaces. For existing customers, migrating from Qlik Sense Cloud Business to Qlik Sense Business gives them the same outstanding speed, performance and availability as Qlik Sense, with a clear path to easily upgrade and continue their analytics journey with Qlik in the cloud. It will also be offered as a 30-day trial for all potential Qlik customers to evaluate the power of Qlik analytics. Some of the many benefits of Qlik Sense Business include:
Qlik’s Associative Engine, self-service app creation, visual data preparation, interactive dashboards, and smart search,
Automated AI-generated insight suggestions,
Direct connectivity to over 40+ data sources,
A personal space, where individual users can create and share their own content,
Five shared spaces, where users can co-develop and control access to apps,
The same redesigned hub as Qlik Sense Enterprise that enables easy content management and sharing for end users, and
A new management console and MyQlik portal for self-service management and administration.
“Organizations of all sizes are increasingly considering vendor-managed, cloud-based services for BI and analytics, but many also want options for hybrid- and multi-cloud deployment,” said Doug Henschen, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research. “Constellation Research added Qlik to its Q3 2019 Shortlist™ for Cloud-Based Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms on the strength of advances in both its SaaS offerings and underlying software support for the preferred cloud standards of Linux and Kubernetes.”
