To help explain these, my good friend Mike Tarallo has created a series of videos that explains what each one is, how they are used and who uses them to show how we address them with Qlik Sense Enterprise.
The key point here is that Qlik Sense Enterprise delivers against all of the use cases and if you are a net new customer to Qlik that is exactly where I’d encourage you start. With a single platform, single UX, HTML 5 and responsive design plus shared and common data models with rich governance across all five use cases. Of course if you are just looking at building for embedded or custom use cases or you are an OEM/developer we have packaged these development capabilities under the Qlik Analytics Platform offering as well. QlikView fits into the platform as well with many common elements including the exact same engine with the release of version 12. QlikView will also be enhanced with annual releases. So if you have an investment in QlikView, you can continue to expand your guided analytics environment with confidence. Should you find a need to expand to other use cases you may want to consider adding Qlik Sense Enterprise.
Why is our platform different?
For a start, let me call out the pink elephant. Platform does not equate to antiquated stack vendors with underlying technology platforms. I’m sure you know the “red” or “blue” logos I’m referring to. Instead, we are very specific about a focused visual analytics platform, which delivers all the underlying technology and ecosystem needed to support any of the modern business intelligence or analytic use cases described above. Unlike other stack ‘platform’ vendors, you don’t need layers and layers of infrastructure just to get a simple report, or dashboard or self-service solution. With Qlik you can start with one simple use case and move to the others, whenever you want. This is only made possible with a modern visual analytics platform that offers all of the following:
As with most things there will be those who claim to offer a platform but I’m pretty confident our approach is unique. A single platform, with a uniquely powerful associative model to drive against all analytics use cases. Learn more about our approach here: http://qlik.com/see-the-whole-story/
