We may be a QlikView partner, but we take an interest in Tableau.
Their Data Visualisation capabilities are some of the best in the business.
Tableau 6.1 has just been announced, and it is interesting to see that Apple iPad optimisation is included. It looks good, and knowing Tableau it will work well.
QlikView has a fully-enabled iPad and mobile capability, and it has been out for some time. Check our blog post from April for proof!
When you develop a QlikView App, you develop it once, it works in a Browser, on mobile, everywhere. There is no additional software, licencing or anything else, it just works!
I think the real message here is that Architecture matters. Qlikview and Tableau have truly flexible architectures under the hood. They can change their products more readily. Traditional BI 'Stack' Vendors are struggling to make their architectures respond to the pace of change, weighed down by the myriad of acquired products in their platforms.
Technology, Businesses and Customers are moving faster than a 3 to 4 year release cycle. But today, why can I still only see a video, or images of their mobile capabilities, and not live apps that I can explore on my iPad?
Today, iPad's for business are hot, even hotter for BI, they are the ideal form factor for mobile BI. Next year who knows what will happen? Qlikview's architecture ensures your BI can go wherever you need it to go.
