Much like Taylor Swift, we here at Vizlib have also been on an epic tour of North America.
The QlikWorld Tour is a thrilling expedition through the world of data analytics and Business Intelligence. As advocates for data-driven decision-making, we’re proud to be Silver Sponsors for an event that brings together industry leaders and visionaries.
It’s been an incredible journey so far.
In this blog, we’ll share some of the key insights and highlights from our time on the QlikWorld Tour in Dallas, San Francisco, New York City, and Atlanta.
What have been the highlights?
In-person discussions and connections
Grant Horun is an Enterprise Account Executive at Vizlib. He loves connecting with Vizlib users, so it’s no surprise that his favourite part of the tour was “getting to meet our various customers and potential partners in person.”
Andy Thomas, Senior Customer Success Manager at Vizlib, agrees. He very much enjoyed “the chance to meet customers in person that [he had] only spoken with on the computer.”
Great learning opportunities
QlikWorld Tour always has some amazing speakers, and the “exciting presentations” were one of Andy’s highlights.
From the latest Qlik innovations to industry news, it’s great to hear the latest data analytics conversations!
What are our key takeaways?
One of the best parts of these in-person events is the opportunity to keep our finger on the pulse of everything analytics. Andy and Grant picked up some hot topics that are worth keeping an eye on for 2024!
All about Write-Back
According to Grant, “the benefits of Write-Back and real time analytics” have been the biggest topics on tour. Andy agrees that Write-Back is by far the most discussed of Vizlib’s extensions.
If you’re not already using it, Vizlib Write-Back is a powerful feature that allows you and your team to edit, update, and comment on data points or entire rows, directly in your Qlik Sense dashboards.
This preserves the most efficient and intuitive analytics workflows, and helps to ensure up-to-date data for the best decision making.

Qlik Sense and Qlik Cloud are the future
Andy says that his takeaway is that “Qlik SaaS is the go forward direction for all Qlik Sense customers,” and Qlik Cloud, with its “exciting new features” is an exciting prospect for those in the Qlik ecosystem.
