Qlik Cloud: All you need to know about shifting to modern analytics

Qlik Cloud: All you need to know about shifting to modern analytics

The era of modern analytics truly began when QlikView launched. The now-classic analytics solution and the game-changing Associative Engine revolutionised how businesses can use data, increasing the accessibility of business intelligence like never before. 

Qlik has evolved and developed into Qlik Sense®, a next-generation modern analytics platform. This evolution has been fuelled by three major shifts in modern analytics: 

  • Democratisation of data
  • Augmented analytics
  • Embedded analytics

In this post, we are going to talk about the capabilities of modern analytics and how Qlik is supporting a shift to modern BI.

What are the capabilities of modern analytics? 

Modern data analytics is built on the Cloud. Enterprises are modernising their data environments and embracing the capabilities and benefits that come with them. 

The Cloud delivers notable benefits for teams and business leaders that have measurable impacts on productivity, efficiency, and bottom lines. For example, the Cloud offers businesses greater flexibility and agility, allowing them to access and assess data quickly.

Data types and sources are growing every day, from social media feeds to IoT—based sensor data. As a result, there is a huge amount of data that your organisation can tap into. Harnessing all this information for a complete picture of your business is now possible due to modern analytics.

This shift to modern analytics often comes at a lower total cost than ownership. The demand for resources in the Cloud is dynamic, changing at lightning speed and allowing you to lower overall costs by only paying for resources as needed. 

Moving to the Cloud is the way to modernise and gain a competitive advantage. Cloud data analytics bring benefits to people at every level of your organisation. 

  • CIOs and IT leaders benefit from agility and growth, speeding up the deployment of new products and capabilities and improving the adaptability to change in adapting environments. 
  • IT staff and developers can offload end-user reporting and one-off requests. This frees up time to focus on more important tasks and strategic projects.
  • Organisations save time and money on infrastructure. Rather than having a difficult-to-maintain data centre built on a legacy system with numerous security flaws, you can use the Cloud and eliminate software upgrade requirements as new features are delivered to you as they are rolled out. 

Qlik Sense is delivering these benefits to numerous organisations through world-class analytics. Using a Cloud-based service such as Qlik eliminates the complexities of installation, deployment, administration, and software upgrades.

How is Qlik supporting businesses shift to modern BI? 

Qlik democratises BI in a way that allows every member of your organisation, at all skill levels, to freely explore your data. The assistance of powerful AI means that data analytics becomes more accessible and that everyone in your team can use data to influence the actions they take on projects. Qlik helps you to uncover hidden insights, make smarter decisions, and drive better outcomes.

What is Qlik Cloud and how does Vizlib support it?

Qlik SaaS is developed to support the shift towards a Cloud-first technology approach. For Vizlib customers looking to shift to Cloud-first through Qlik Cloud or in the process of moving to Qlik Cloud Services, your teams will continue to get a top user experience with easy-to-understand visualisations that are familiar with on-premise.

A great example of this is Vizlib Sheet Menu. This popular Vizlib Library extension lets you mirror navigation bars’ design in your web apps. It’s simple to navigate and user-friendly, making it simple to group and neatly organise apps without writing a single line of code!

Vizlib Sheet Menu has the exact same interface in Qlik Cloud as on-premises. And this is only one of the many ways that Vizlib can bring back the features that users lose in Qlik Sense when they upgrade to Qlik Cloud.

Users can also forecast more accurately with Vizlib’s Advanced Analytics capabilities.

Linear Progression Forecasting gives leaders accurate ways to predict future business opportunities. For example, Scenario Analysis assists in evaluating various future scenarios for your projects so that you can calculate potential risks and prepare for any potential changes, mitigating the impact they will have on deliverables.

Vizlib ensures that the experience you get is the same when you migrate to the Cloud.  Matching up your Cloud and on-premises experience helps you make a fast and seamless migration to the Cloud and realise the benefits faster.


Use Vizlib’s solutions to shift to modern BI

For Vizlib customers looking to migrate all or some of their processes on Qlik SaaS (Qlik Cloud Services), we assist in the migration and ensure that your teams will get the same easy-to-use experience they’re familiar with their current on-premise infrastructure.

The combination of the user experience across your platforms, such as Qlik SaaS + Vizlib on-premise and in the Cloud can lead to numerous benefits such as advanced analytics and game-changing writeback capabilities.
