The data discovery tools you need in Qlik Sense

The data discovery tools you need in Qlik Sense

All businesses are inundated with data. To get real value from the continual flood of information, users should have easy access to data exploration tools.

Data discovery tools help everyone – from data scientists to business users – confidently dive into business data and easily extract insights. These solutions should bring together data from different sources in the business and support how users work with it. The goal: to simplify data exploration and ensure the tools do all the heavy lifting through embedded analytics, AI and Machine Learning technology.

Familiar look and usability

Ideally, data discovery tools should have a familiar-looking interface – like a web search platform – to encourage more user adoption. It should have UX, like drag-and-drop functionality. Users need a hassle-free experience when they’re trying to ask and answer their business questions. And when they’re winning with the process and making smarter decisions, the team and whole business win!

Simplify data with more visualisation

Another way to hook non-technical users is with visual analytics. Visual analytics is a method of exploring and analysing with easy-to-grasp imagery. Since many people are visual learners, you can help a broader range of users grasp complex data through eye-catching graphics.

Vizlib’s value-added products for Qlik Sense enable all users to create customised, impactful data visualisation, without the need for any technical coding skills.

Independent data exploration

A modern approach to analytics is to empower all users to create reports and have them ask their own business questions. This allows more people within the business to understand data science without relying on assistance from IT.

The more tech-savvy staff are, the more they will need quick and easy access to data. Faster business insights lead to a better competitive edge.
