Getting social with BI
QlikTech has released QlikView 11, which the company says enables social decision-making on its self-service BI platform to help business users collaborate for decision-making.
Further, in QlikView 11, the company introduces comparative analysis, designed to extend the QlikView associative experience to enable interactive comparison of user-defined groupings. Other key benefits of the release include making application development easier and faster, and enhancing QlikView’s manageability and security capabilities for large enterprises.
With QlikView 11’s social business discovery, workgroups and teams can collaborate by collectively exploring data in real time, as well as jointly creating analysis to quickly answer business questions and arrive at informed decisions. Comparative analysis is used for contrasting multiple data sets like market basket comparisons in a retail setting or stock performance analysis in financial services. QlikTech cites as an example, to compare the performance of two or more groupings of products, users simply select multiple products for each group, and QlikView automatically visually contrasts their performance—across regions, time periods or any other measure.
