QlikView 10 Delivers Consumer Experience for Enterprise BI SoftwareOctober 16, 2010 No Comments
QlikView, a leading business intelligence company, recently announced the availability of QlikView 10, the only BI solution that combines the simplicity of the consumer application user experience with the power of enterprise BI. QlikView is already used by large global enterprises, including Campbell’s Soup, Canon, Fila, Gatorade, Panasonic, and Toyota, to empower business users to ask and answer critical business questions. QlikView’s disruptive consumer approach allows users to rapidly solve business problems in days and weeks, rather than traditional BI which can take months, a year or never at all. It’s why an IDC survey sponsored by QlikTech revealed that QlikView customers achieve significantly higher satisfaction with their BI systems than general BI users. On a scale of 1 to 5, 96% of QlikView users indicated the top three levels of satisfaction1. This was recently reinforced as QlikTech ranked number one in BI customer loyalty in the BARC BI survey2.
“Our extraordinary traction is a testament to the success of our consumer-oriented approach,” says Anthony Deighton, Senior Vice President, Product, QlikTech. “QlikView 10 illustrates our continued commitment to simplicity — from a user perspective with search and speed, from a development perspective with extensions for customization and from an IT perspective in terms of manageability. With QlikView 10, we continue to transform the entire BI industry, which is now struggling to catch up with us.”
Delivers the BI Consumer Enterprise
QlikView 10 combines the simplicity of the consumer application experience with the power of BI. With QlikView 10, any business user can become instantly productive by clicking through data to make more informed, timely decisions. It also features new visualizations that enable users to explore and understand their data more easily than ever. For example, new Mekko charts let users portray relationships and ratios among dimensional values within a bar chart. In addition, QlikView 10 lets users get to specific analytics more rapidly than ever with the ability to refine or change selections via a drop-down list for each selection.
QlikView 10’s Associative Search leverages QlikView’s in-memory approach to deliver the familiar experience of a search engine to find critical information and get fast business answers. Similar to Google’s new Instant Search, QlikView’s Associative Search provides instant results as you type. Its intuitive interface highlights important relationships between your data. QlikView 10 also extends Associative Search into every listbox across every dashboard, enabling users to quickly find detailed answers to critical questions.
Faster Than Ever
QlikView 10 delivers performance improvements across the board ― from data acquisition to end user interaction. QlikView 10’s new asynchronous AJAX support enables data objects to refresh in real-time without refreshing the entire screen. In addition, core calculation enhancements and multi-threaded reloads take advantage of a new generation of server hardware with large numbers of CPU cores. Beta testing indicates customers can expect 200-1,000% data loading performance improvements with QlikView 10 on multi-core machines. QlikView 10 also scales to meet the requirements of the largest global enterprises. It supports tens of thousands of connected users and billions of records, and delivers linear scalability that leverages the most advanced 64-bit Intel multi-core architectures.
QlikView 10 introduces a new level of integration possibilities, enabling users to extend QlikView with their existing tools and applications. With QlikView extensions, customers have a virtually endless array of visualization and other customization opportunities. For instance, QlikView 10 extensions can show visualizations of maps, flow charts and flash animations. And the new QlikView Data Exchange (QVX) makes it easy for third-party systems to output data that can be quickly accessed by QlikView. Importantly, all integration points into and out of QlikView are documented and openly available to customers and partners who build on our platform.
QlikView 10 gives IT total control with powerful, flexible and easy consoles for measuring, monitoring and deploying QlikView applications and data. It also offers centralized management capabilities, including load balancing, administration and refresh scheduling. QlikView 10 further enhances enterprise manageability capabilities by supporting legal and regulatory compliance initiatives with comprehensive, new end-user usage audit logging, as well as more detailed and distributed control over content distribution.
Works With Existing BI, CRM and ERP Systems
QlikView 10 enables enterprises to easily consolidate data from any source: operational applications such as Oracle, SAP and Salesforce.com; databases such as SQL Server, MySQL and Oracle underlying custom applications; traditional disk-based BI, and data warehouses such as Teradata and Informatica; data behind web services; and local data such as spreadsheets. QlikView 10 allows enterprises to better leverage their investment in existing business and warehousing assets with intuitive access and comprehensive analytics and sophisticated visualization.
