With the right presentation, your complex business data becomes meaningful and useful.
When we launched Q Series (with Q200 for Sage 200), we made a commitment to use the insights our customers provide to continuously improve the solution. Here is a preview of some of the new fetures we have built into Release 2...
Actual V Target
Let's face it, we all have targets to meet and beat.
Track performance against budgets and targets, with our new Summary Screen. Clear Charts, with auto highlighting of under / over performance.
Looks good on an iPad too!
Butterfly charts (with auto highlighting) allow to analyze multiple KPIs at the same. Switch perspective with one click (Customer, Product, Sales Person etc.). Drill and zone in on the highlights and problem areas, all from one chart.
You know the scenario. The meeting is about to start, you need some key figures to bring with you. Instant Reports allows you to build a custom report in seconds.
Simply pick the data and KPIs you want to see on the report, and it is instantly there. You can save reports for future use,
Switch between chart types with one click, to get the best view of your data.

Alfresco, the cloud connected content platform, recently announced that it has appointed QlikTech’s CEO Lars Bjork to its Board of Directors. Why has Lars taken on this position - in answer he said, "Alfresco is in a similar position to where QlikTech was just a few short years ago, with a huge market opportunity. With its unique combination of enterprise-proven cloud, mobile and on-premise content management, Alfresco has all the components to help enterprises navigate the shift to mobile and cloud productivity. Enterprises don't need a Dropbox alternative - they need Alfresco."
I think this is further evidence of the view that mobile and cloud productivity offers a bright future for technology companies. I also believe that it confirms the position that QlikView will move more and more to embrace these technologies.
Under Lars’ leadership, QlikTech has sustained tremendous growth while considerably expanding its geographic reach. Lars oversaw the company’s initial public offering (IPO) in 2010, which was recognized as one of the year’s top tech IPOs. Since taking the CEO position in 2007, the company has grown almost 400% from $80.6M to $320.6M, which is the valuable experience Lars brings to Alfresco as part of his role on the board.
I recently read a research note from CITO, sponsored by QlikView which compares the infromation you can glean from Business Intelligence with the results of 'Search' from Google.
'Google is not BI', it states candidly, because its search results return Web pages, not answers, and corporate data is not comprised of keywords. Rather it’s information is mostly numerical and highly dimensional, and answers must be computed rather than searched.
BI systems crunch narrowly predefined questions from laboriously assembled data sets, producing answers to a predetermined set of questions. BI was designed in a computing universe of scarcity—slow processors, limited storage, and expensive memory. But today memory is cheap and hardware exponentially more powerful. As Google discovered, it’s now possible to load massive databases into memory for instant analysis. Traditional BI dashboards don’t work like this. That’s because they don’t allow instant analysis of live data; they only allow analysis of the particular data that IT was requested to include. What’s needed is a fusion of Google’s simplicity and BI’s computational abilities. A Google-ized dashboard would be fast, scalable, and utterly intuitive, allowing users to explore data by simply pointing and clicking and choosing what they want. To do that the dashboard would have to be able to, like Google, access lots of aggregated data from many different data sources, define dimensions such as customer demographics, and create associations such as sales by region. User could ask and answer their own questions through a simple search and refine results with just a few clicks.
QlikView is a new kind of BI software providing users with tools to explore and visualize information. QlikView’s patented associative in-memory architecture allows users to ask and answer their own questions. Your job is to understand data,not grapple with technology. BI is no longer as good as your IT department’s last cube—it’s as good as the questions you ask.

QlikPower has welcomed the two new immigration initiatives aimed at facilitating migrant entrepreneurs to create jobs in Ireland, in return for permission to live in the State.
''This is potentially an excellent opportunity for us to attract investment for our software development inintiatives in Ireland, and could provide a much needed boost for the industry as a whole'' said Noel Shannon - CEO of QlikPower and Commence International.
QlikPower are currently developing the Q Series of Business Intelligence applications which are focused on providing rapid deployment of prebuilt BI solutions for particular target markets throughout the world. Q 200 is focused on Sage implemenetations, Q Vision is for Microsoft Dynamics customers and Q Retail is for RMS installations.
The Immigrant Investor Programme and the Start-Up Entrepreneur Programme will be formally launched by the Irish Minister for Justice Alan Shatter in March 2012.
The first programme will require between €400,000 and €2m of an investment by applicants, depending on the level and duration of financial commitment.
The second programme aims to foster new enterprises for which the applicant will have to have financial backing of not less than €70,000.
Approved participants and their immediate family will be allowed enter the State on multi-entry visas and remain here for two years. The visas will be renewable.
Applications for both programmes will be considered by an Evaluation Committee comprised of relevant State Agencies and Government Departments.
