One of the great strengths of Qlik is its simplicity and accessibility, and there is a lot of valuable material publicly available designed to get you up and running with the program. What is a lot harder to find is targeted tuition tailored for the intermediate and advanced level. Much of the support provided for more specialized problem solving comes from knowledge shared throughout the informal ‘Qlik community’ of online forums and blogs, and many users do not realize the vast potential of the platform.

    Summary: Learn an easy method to deliver a Qlik Sense app as an embedded web page. Yes, the spelling of this post’s title is intentional 😉 I just came off a week of Qlik Sense API & Integration training with Nick Webster of Websy.  I’ve been nothing short of impressed with the integration and reuse options […]

  • Document Analyzer Batch Analysis July 18, 2017
    I’ve received several requests to provide a batch interface to the popular QV Document Analyzer tool that will provide for analyzing multiple QVWs with a single command.  It’s now available for download here. The script is a windows cmd file.  Because many browsers block download of cmd files, I’ve provided it with a “txt” extension. […]

  • QlikView for Developers: Update June 30, 2017
    Today PacktPub published a new version of Miguel García’s and my 2012 book, QlikView 11 for Developers. Now released under the version-agnostic title QlikView for Developers, the book can be used for QlikView 11, 11.2, 12 and 12.1. (and given how little love Qlik has shown QlikView recently, probably every upcoming version, if any, after this) […]

  • What I learned about Qlik Sense security February 23, 2017
    When comparing Qlik Sense to QlikView, the most obvious differences are on the front-end, with its completely overhauled and fully responsive design. Other major differences are the server-based development, the use of Master Items and the shift towards APIs, mashups, extensions and widgets. Somewhat less prominent, though very deserving of your attention, is the security model […]

  • Q-Tip #17 – The Curious Case of a Wildcard Load and a Join May 9, 2017
    It’s been a while since I had a chance to write a blog article… I can’t complain though, because preparing and delivering the Masters Summit for Qlik in Munich was a lot of fun. I also took a few days off and jumped to Prague, which was awesome! Interesting discovery (at least to myself) – in Prague,...

  • Q-Tip #16 – What’s Special About Those Derived Fields December 20, 2016
    Ever since the introduction of Derived Fields in Qlik Sense, I was curious – what’s so special about them? Are they different from any other fields that are stored in your data set? Are they stored or calculated on the fly? Do they work equally well in Chart dimensions, in Filters, and in Set Analysis...

  • Q-Tip #15 – Excluding the Excluded October 27, 2016
    It’s been a while since I found an interesting topic, worthy of a blog article… This Q-Tip originated from a question that we received at the Masters Summit for Qlik in Ausitn, TX. Here is the question: Hmm… at first I was puzzled and couldn’t even come up with a direction for the possible solution....
