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.

Today I’ll […]

  • Does Data Sort Order Impact Chart Calc Time? September 19, 2018
    Lately I’ve been digging into an old Qlik performance question.  How much impact, if any, does the order of Qlik data tables have on chart calc time?  My experience is that for a chart or aggr() cube with a lot of dimension values,  ordering of rows by dimension values can have a significant and measurable […]

    TL;DR: check out SenseTheme. At Bitmetric, my colleagues and I regularly meet after work to investigate and experiment with interesting methods and technologies, share knowledge and generally shoot the breeze (we’re all at different client sites during the week, so it’s a good time to catch up).

  • 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?
