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.

  • qcb-qlik-sse, A General Purpose SSE November 12, 2019
    In Qlikview we have the ability to add function to the scripting language by writing VbScript in the document module (sometime called the “macro module”).  Typical  additions included regular expression matching & parsing, Qlik Sense does not have the module feature, but both Sense and QlikView share a similar feature,  Server Side Extension (SSE).  SSE is typically positioned […]

  • Load Master Items in Script? October 3, 2019
    At the Masters Summit for Qlik, I always try to show something new and cool.  At past events I’ve shown things like Alexa selections in Qlik Sense and the new Document Analyzer for Qlik Sense. So what do I have lined up for the upcoming Amsterdam and Washington DC events? In QlikView we use variables in a […]

  • Using JSON as HyperCube Data Payload September 25, 2019
    Summary: In this post I suggest a case for formatting measures as JSON to allow for easy consumption in an Engine-API webapp. In a recent customer webapp project with my partners at Websy, I found that using JSON for data in Qlik hypercubes was a useful technique. The app displays an overview of metrics collected throughout the organization, along with contextual clues […]

  • Auto AutoNumber your key fields September 27, 2019
    A quick note on a cool feature that I recently learned from Oleg Troyansky: AutoNumber. I hear you thinking: “What? You didn’t know about AutoNumber? It’s been around for years. Hand over your Luminary badge!“. Admittedly, this is also what I thought when I hear Oleg mention it but it turned out that I misunderstood. […]

  • Q-Tip #21 – AUTONUMBER, so old, so new! October 7, 2019
    Hi there! Long time no talk… As you can imagine, I’ve been busy – Master Summits for Qlik, my own “QlikView Your Business” master classes, etc etc etc… Plus, it’s not too often that we see something so interesting and so exciting that warrant a blog article. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough… Anyway, speaking […]

  • Q-Tip #20 – Showing All Values in Qlik Sense March 18, 2019
    Those of us old enough to have used QlikView will remember a feature that allows showing all dimension values in a chart, even if there were zeroes or no data for those values. In Qlik Sense, unfortunately, there is no such feature. After a bit of tinkering, though, I found a solution for this. And […]

  • Q-Tip # 19 – Insights, Anyone? January 21, 2019
    Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning – these buzzwords are now all over the press, the Internet and social media. In the process of outsourcing everything possible, we are now actively outsourcing human intelligence, replacing it with machines. Oh wait, that sounded wrong. Perhaps we are just trying to make our work easier and more productive, constantly […]
