Qlik Sense also offers improved smart data preparation capabilities for business users to load, transform, and enrich their data without the need for complex scripting.
- Visual data profiling assists users in understanding their data as they load it into Qlik Sense, including auto-generated visual representations of the data through histograms and other visualizations. This greatly speeds up the ability for users to get to the point of analysis with new information.
- Data binning enables users to easily create data ‘bins’ or groups of numeric data, allows for easier analysis with granular numeric data. For example, users can now easily bin data into groups such as small, medium, and large.
- Table concatenation allows users to easily concatenate tables even if they do not have the same fields and field names. Now customers and partners can bring tables from two companies together even if they do not store data the same way.
Finally, Qlik Connectors™ now provides connectivity to hundreds of data sources, including file-based sources such as Excel® and XML, enterprise sources such as Oracle®, SAP, and ODBC databases, web-based sources such as Salesforce.com, and big data sources including Teradata, Cloudera, and others.

Qlik Web Connectors have grown to include more than 40 to popular web applications and services such as Bit.ly, Google® Search Console, Google® AdWords™, Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM, and more.
Expanded Enterprise Capabilities Empower Associative Search
Experience for Big Data
Qlik’s big data capabilities have been enhanced to include On Demand App Generation templates built directly into Qlik Sense, enabling users to navigate big data sources using associative search to discover areas for detailed analysis. On Demand App Generation empowers the user to automatically generate a purpose-built analysis app every time they select a slice of a very large data source. Now, self-service users can get up and running with big data easier and faster.
Advanced Analytics Integration, GeoAnalytics Strengthen Qlik Platform
Through its open APIs, Qlik now offers integration with best-in-class natural language generation and processing, advanced predictive analytics, and an immersive experience including augmented intelligence. New advanced predictive analytics integration capability allows for direct data exchange between the QIX engine and third-party calculation engines. Qlik has released integrations using this interface for R and Python. This allows for advanced calculations from external tools to be visualized within Qlik Sense, in real-time as the user explores. With this capability, users can combine the power of Qlik’s Associative Model with advanced analytics to better support use cases such as fraud detection, sales forecasting, and inventory management.
With the newest edition to the Qlik portfolio – Qlik GeoAnalytics™ -- both Qlik Sense and QlikView® users can easily add maps to their apps with automatic geo-data lookup to reveal crucial spatial information and then overlay them with different visualizations to see the whole story in their data. Users can not only seamlessly drill down into information dense maps that contain millions of points, but also use Qlik GeoAnalytics cloud-based service to analyze geo-data in combination with non-geo data for use cases such as determining potential store locations or calculating supply chain delivery times. Several geospatial and mapping improvements have been made, such as supporting shapes, drill down, multi-layer maps, and increased data density.
