Written by

Passionned Group is a leading analyst and consultancy firm specialized in Business Analytics and Business Intelligence. Our passionate advisors assist many organizations in selecting the best Business Analytics Software and applications. Every two years we organize the election of the smartest company.

The Business Intelligence vendor QlikTech has released a new version of its flagship QlikView Business Intelligence. In this version a complete new concept is added to the existing capabilities: set based analysis.

QlikView not focused on reporting

Vendors like BusinessObjects and Cognos were from the beginning focused on reporting. The Business Intelligence software pioneer QlikTech has never had some kind of reporting. Instead, they invested a lot of time in developing advanced tools for analyzing information, often very user-friendly. With the introduction of set based analysis they have added a complete new concept to their award winning Business Intelligence software for both businesses and (local) governments.

The selection possibilities are almost endless

Users are now able to select one or more members of a dimension and all the figures on the screen are automatically adjusted. Regardless of the visualisation. Even on custom-made dashboards selections are adjusted if necessary. The selection possibilities are almost endless. The newest version offers nested selections, inclusions, exclusions and so forth.

Other new features of QlikView 8.5 are:

  • enhancements for easier deployment and management
  • embedding QlikView directly into business applications
  • improvements in their API structure including J2EE server
  • simplification of the licensing structure; the distinction between 32-bit and 64-bit is removed.

QlikTech, famous for its OLAP-capabilities and ease of use, has told us that the newest release is thoroughly beta-tested by more than 400 people. The Chief Technology Officer of QlikTech, Jonas Nachmanson, describes QlikView as a solution that bridges the gap between all kind of Business Intelligence tools. They claim to offer a solution that is capable of reporting, dashboarding, OLAP>, data mining, PDF-export and analysis.
