Qlik Expands Sense Cloud with New SaaS Offering

Announces the Qlik Sense Cloud Business delivering visual analytics in the cloud for the creation, management, and sharing of apps, whether SMB or workgroups within the enterprise

Hosting its Qonnections 2016 customer and partner event, Qlik has announced that it is expanding its Qlik Sense Cloud offerings with the introduction of Qlik Sense Cloud Business. Qlik Sense Cloud Business enables anyone from SMBs to individuals and workgroups within an enterprise – to create, manage, and collaborate with visual analytics in the simplicity of the cloud. It is poweredby the patented QIX Associative Indexing Engine and provides the security, scalability, and performance of the industry-proven Qlik visual analytics platform. By lowering the barrier to entry and providing a business-ready, subscription-based cloud offering, customers can benefit from Qlik Sense Cloud Business immediately with no capital costs.

As per the release, Qlik Sense Cloud Business extends the power of data-driven insights to users and groups throughout an organization with its drag-and-drop interface, visualization and associative experience in a responsive, HTML5 client. In addition, data management capabilities empower users to combine data from diverse sources, including in the cloud, uploaded from on-premise, and third-party apps, to quickly create rich, interactive apps. This user experience is underpinned by Qlik’s Associative Model, which enables users to probe all the possible associations that exist across all of their data.

Current Qlik Sense Cloud Basic and Plus offerings provide individuals with all the advantages of Qlik Sense combined with the ability to easily share analysis and insights. This cloud-based model allows organizations to add new users and apps as requirements change, with the elasticity to support current and future needs. Several cloud-based, value-add services are also available including Qlik DataMarket and Qlik Sense Charts.

Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products said, “Our cloud strategy encompasses more than just an infrastructure or Software-as-a-Service play. At Qlik we see an exciting opportunity for cloud-based value-added services to optimize the visual analytics experience. Likewise, because people do not make decisions alone, sharing in the cloud will always be an important part of our collaboration strategy.”

Qlik Sense Cloud Basic, Qlik Sense Charts, Qlik DataMarket, and Qlik Sense Cloud Plus are available today. Qlik Sense Cloud Business will be available in the second half of 2016, the release said.
