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.
