Leverages unprecedented level of open APIs recently unveiled in Qlik Sense
Qlik launches Qlik Branch, which provides simplified access to the open and powerful APIs of Qlik Sense and QlikView for better and easier integration with home-grown and third-party web technologies and applications.
Qlik Branch is disrupting the Business Intelligence industry norms and fostering collaboration and innovation by providing open access to how enterprises interact with and extend Qlik Sense to create web sites, visualizations, applications, and more. Because all projects are shared under open souce licensing, not only can users create and post solutions, but they can also find solutions and download extensions with complete source code for free. Solutions posted on Qlik Branch will not require official Qlik support as is provided in certifications on Qlik Market. The Qlik Developer Relations team will be on hand to support the sharing and exchange of ideas.
Qlik Branch is live with over 2000 registered users and 100 projects in its debut at branch.qlik.com, featuring extensions, mash-ups, web applications, and more.
“We are not precious about what the best visualization is to solve a problem. Just like our corporate culture, we believe true disruptive innovation is best fostered through openness and exchange,” said Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO. “Qlik Sense has given us an opportunity to totally rethink the developer experience. We want to give developers everywhere the ability to explore the potential of Qlik Sense to create and share offerings that provide an added dimension to the user experience. With Qlik Branch, we create a game-changing platform for developers to accelerate innovation to bring the best ideas to market.”
