At its annual customer and partner event Qonnections, BI provider Qlik announced, among other things, the further expansion of its Multi-Cloud and Augmented Intelligence offering. Thus Data Literacy in companies will be further increased and supported in the best possible way.
Qlik therefore continues to pursue the approach of “3rd Generation BI” – a combination of integrated analysis functions, the use of Augmented Intelligence and Data Democratization. Data should be able to be used anywhere in any company and made available via extensive (cloud) options. Human intuition and machine intelligence should go hand in hand via integrated analysis functions. The relevant extensions were already partially implemented with the April releases and will continue to be published with the coming June versions.
Extensive and flexible deployment options
The last version of Qlik Sense Enterprise, which was released in April, can therefore be fully deployed in the Qlik Cloud Services environment as part of Qlik’s multi-cloud framework. A deployment via Kubernetes in a public or private cloud is also possible. Some new functions also simplify the management of users, content and licenses in different environments (e.g. Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud platform).
Deeper insights through Artificial Intelligence
With the new feature “Associative Insights” (available since April) and the “Qlik Insight Advisor” (introduced last year), the areas of Augmented Intelligence and Machine Learning were expanded by combining the associative and cognitive Qlik engines. This has created even more opportunities to analyze data in various directions and gain new insights, for example by showing the user possible, even deeper, correlations and by making suggestions for further data analysis. The final decision, however, remains with the user’s intuition.
More news with the June version
For the upcoming June release Qlik Sense has announced further innovations in the field of Augmented Intelligence. Among other things, natural language analyses and extended import options into the Qlik Cloud Services as well as a new Qlik Sense Mobile Client and SaaS products for groups and teams will be supported. QlikView users will also find it easier to use Qlik Sense.
The most important data and analysis innovations can also be heard in the keynotes of the Qonnections 2019 event.
