Qlik launches Mobile for SaaS updates, drives continuous intelligence

By Catherine Knowles

Qlik has launched an enhanced mobile analytics experience with Qlik Sense Mobile for SaaS.

This is one of four key features being delivered in Q2 across Qlik's SaaS data integration and analytics platform.

These capabilities are designed to help customers continue their journey to Active Intelligence, moving from passive data consumption to informed action with continuous intelligence from real-time, up-to-date information.

Qlik Sense Mobile for SaaS is a fully native app for iOS and Android that provides an improved user experience, fully interactive online and offline analysis, and integrated alerting to drive action at the point of decision.

It delivers Qlik Sense analytics optimised for mobile consumption, with additions such as a single object mode for navigation, an intuitive selections bar, and a mobile collection in the hub.

With the Qlik Associative Engine running on-device, it supports fully interactive data exploration, allowing mobile workers to answer unanticipated questions in any environment, the company states.

Furthermore, integrated alerting with push notifications makes users aware of important changes in their data so they can respond in real-time.

Other key features being delivered in Q2 that support the journey to Active Intelligence include: collaborative notes, hybrid data delivery and self-service supporting.

According to Qlik, Collaborative Notes will help bring disparate team members together to collaborate across an entire analytics process, ultimately from initial data sourcing to dashboard design, insight delivery and continued exploration.

Notes will make it more easy for users to add the human perspective directly into analytics workflows by taking snapshots of analytics, adding narrative and context to analytics, and creating discussions to actively interact with others around data, the company states.

Users will be able to tag and invite others to discussions, creating a collaborative canvas for both real-time (synchronous) and offline (asynchronous) communication.

Supporting the ability to enable real-time analytic data pipelines, Qlik will be delivering Hybrid Data Delivery capabilities, the first in a series of new Qlik Cloud Data Services.

These initial capabilities will create and manage data sets that are automatically updated in near real-time as data sources change, supporting Active BI in Qlik Sense SaaS deployments.

This new capability will allow users to schedule the delivery of a chart or sheet via email, containing their data of interest in PDF format.

Scheduling options will include subscribing to specific charts on a monthly or weekly basis based on day and time preferences, with a link back to the analytics.

This is the first of several new reporting capabilities in SaaS planned for 2021 to deliver Mode 1 and Mode 2 analytics on a single cloud platform and user experience.

Qlik chief product officer James Fisher says, “Analytic data pipelines built for the cloud are the only ones that can deliver the real-time insights and action at the heart of Active Intelligence.

"With Qlik Sense Mobile for SaaS and our additional planned features, Qlik continues to enhance the only modern end-to-end platform that gives enterprises the analytic data pipelines required for real-time data delivery to capture business moments and drive unique value.”
