BI provider Qlik has launched its product releases for June. Especially Qlik Sense has been extended with some new features. But there are also news regarding NPrinting.
The data visualization software Qlik Sense has received innovations in the areas of Advanced Authoring, visualizations and mobility. The highlights are:
Improved Advanced Authoring
With Qlik Sense June 2019, the possibilities for Advanced Authoring were expanded. For example, values from a table cell can now be copied quickly and easily to clipboard. Previously, this was only possible via detours. In addition, a new grid layout allows developers to choose the rendering method to sheets on small screens. In addition, the new version contains extensions to the container object (e.g. better integration capabilities).
Spring is here and comes with the new releases of BI provider Qlik. The new versions include cross-product innovations as well as new features and improvements for the visualization software Qlik Sense.
In addition to some advances in the multi-cloud-architecture, the introduction of the new AI offering Associative Insights and an optimization of the dual-use-option of QlikView and Qlik Sense, the April release wave also offers some new functionalities for Qlik Sense and NPrinting.
With its April releases, Qlik introduces new Enterprise SaaS deployment capabilities that give customers more flexibility on their journey into the cloud. Among other things, users will be able to deploy Qlik Sense via hosted cloud services as well as their own cloud infrastructure (via “Qlik Sense on Kubernetes”). All deployment options – including Qlik Sense Enterprise for Windows – can be used cohesively within a multi-cloud-framework.
Within the scope of the recently launched Qlik release wave, which optimized the data visualization platform Qlik Sense again, NPrinting has been equipped with new functions, too.
The most important new features of the latest NPrinting version include the following areas:
Password protection Since the September release, NPrinting has a password protection. It is possible to protect reports with both “read” and “read & write” passwords. Passwords can be set at report, publish task or user level. The preview in the Printing Newsstand is accordingly disabled for password protected reports.
Macros in Excel reports Concerning the creation of Excel reports, it is now possible to integrate Visual Basic macros into reports and publish them in *.xlsm format.
Cookies According to the new data protection guidelines, NPrinting cookies will be deleted immediately after session logout.
In addition, the latest version of NPrinting also contains numerous improvements relating to performance and stability.
Appealing reports can be generated and automatically distributed quickly and easily using the Qlik NPrinting reporting platform – in various formats via different channels. The add-on sources the required data and analyses for the adaptable reports from QlikView and Qlik Sense.
Qlik NPrinting uses QlikView and Qlik Sense as a data source and therefore accesses patterns and QlikView or Qlik Sense elements which the required reports are finally based on. Thanks to complete Microsoft Office Integration suitable report templates can be created in the native Office environment.
The reports can be produced in various standard formats, such as PDF, Excel, Word, PowerPoint or HTML and distributed accordingly – at a scheduled time or whenever they are requested by individual users.
They are distributed, e.g. by email or a transfer drive, but mainly through a centralized distribution system, the web-based NPrinting NewsStand Portal, which ensures that the reports are reaching their user extremely easy and fast. The user can finally subscribe to the required reports from a computer or mobile end device or have the available reports displayed or download them. As a result, the correct information always reaches the right recipient at the required time.
Qlik NPrinting also guarantees optimized flexibility, control and security through multi-engine scalability. Role-based security at app level ensures at the same time that administrators, developers and recipients only receive access to information that they are authorized for and is relevant to them.
