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.
More and more companies are moving data and applications to public and private clouds to take advantage of scalable data storage and processing. At the same time, there is still a need for local data storage and processing, for example for legacy systems or due to security and compliance regulations.
To address these challenges, Qlik Sense is offering new ways to deploy a multi-cloud architecture since one of its latest releases.
With the new deployment package “Qlik Sense Enterprise for Elastic”, Qlik Sense installations can be flexibly distributed, consumed and managed across a wide range of environments – whether in the cloud or locally. The architecture can be easily and flexibly adapted at any time – depending on how business requirements change over time.
The multi-cloud capabilities were developed to provide users with a unified platform that is easily and economically scalable, irrespective of the different local and cloud infrastructures. Accordingly, all users have a single, common license and login in all environments to make access easy and seamless.
Customers can benefit from the multi-cloud features since the release of Qlik Sense Enterprise June 2018.
