For just a few hours now, QlikView 12, the latest version of one of the world’s leading Business Intelligence platforms, has been available on the market. Besides several innovations familiar from the beta version, the software now offers additional interesting functions.
Around two months after ending the beta test phase, Qlik has published the latest release of its proven analysis solution, QlikView 12. Even before the official release, users were able to get a first glance at several of the new features and extensions. The new features include the improved QIX Engine, extended touch functions, and a new online help portal including context-sensitive help pages to provide support during product use. Furthermore, the beta version already included optimisations pertaining to the security of external interfaces.
Direct integration of Qlik DataMarket in QlikView has also been added to the official release of QlikView 12. The innovative, cloud-based data service provides users with access to a large collection of different data records in a variety of thematic areas, e.g. population numbers, currencies, and weather. The data that may be accessed and used directly from QlikView is partially freely available and partially subject to a charge.
Besides this, QlikView 12 includes a RESTful API Connector. This enables a seamless connection between QlikView and other web-based data sources that also possess a RESTful API Connector. For example, QlikView may be simply connected to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, without the need to involve third-party providers or use other extensions.
