  • Social Business DiscoveryUsing concepts from the consumer world, social Business Discovery enables business users to collaborate on discoveries and generate multiplicative insights. Social Business Discovery helps organizations optimize business decisions by making it easier for people to take into account each other’s inputs, perspectives, viewpoints, and expertise.Users can collaborate on creation of analytic apps and can define and answer their own questions―in formal or informal groups, in real-time as well as asynchronously. In teams and groups, business users can explore data together to forge new paths to discovery and insight.Comparative AnalysisQlikView 11 takes our core associative analytics capability further through the introduction of comparative analysis. Comparative analysis enables business users to choose multiple selection sets in the data and visually compare these user-defined data sets to spot trends, outliers, or differences.Mobile Business DiscoveryWith mobile Business Discovery, users get insight “on location.” Mobile Business Discovery enables people to take advantage of being in a particular place at a particular time. QlikView on Mobile delivers true Business Discovery and the full power of QlikView to the mobile device, including associative experience, interactive analysis, access to live data, and search.Rapid Analytic App PlatformWith Business Discovery, there are no “end users.” Every user is the start of something, a node in the creation of information that is no longer highly centered and radial. A rapid analytic app platform helps business users contribute to the creation of analysis quickly and painlessly―without requiring lots of ongoing involvement from IT.Enterprise PlatformWhile Business Discovery platforms must deliver business user benefits such as insight everywhere, an app model, remixability and reassembly, a social and collaborative experience, and mobility―they can’t stop there. Business Discovery platforms must also provide capabilities for IT, such as security to protect sensitive data, the ability to crunch massive volumes of data quickly, and advanced yet easy-to-use administration tools.
  • The social Business Discovery themeIn our vision of the future of Business Discovery, a social and collaborative experience is front and center. Using concepts from the consumer world, social Business Discovery enables business users to collaborate on discoveries and generate multiplicative insights. Social Business Discovery helps organizations optimize business decisions by making it easier for people to take into account each other’s inputs, perspectives, viewpoints, and expertise.The new social Business Discovery capabilities in QlikView 11 build on existing collaboration functionality in the QlikView platform including collaboration objects, shared bookmarks, Microsoft Office® integration, and QlikView web parts for use with Microsoft SharePoint®.Why did we invest in this theme?Some of our investments in this area – like our new annotations capability – are driven by customer requirements.With others, such as collaborative sessions, we are demonstrating our thought leadership and innovation, and making a statement about where we think BI is going.
  • All significant business decisions are made in teamsPeople come to decision through discussion and collaboration among stakeholders. They work together in groups and make decisions based on multiple inputs: analysis of data as well as multiple peoples’ opinions, insights, experiences, and research. ====================With social Business Discovery:Users collaborate on creation of analytic apps and can define and answer their own questions―in formal or informal groups. They communicate with each other in real time and asynchronously to collaboratively explore data, forge paths to discovery and insight, and arrive at decisions. And they explore Business Discovery apps through a social lens to find the data and insights that are most relevant to them. With social Business Discovery, people can make unexpected discoveries and organizations can streamline the decision-making process.Our position is that the QlikView Business Discovery platform should be available to users in whatever context users want it. Some people—or people at some times—want access to social and collaboration tools right there in their decision app, in the moment when they have an observation. At other times, they may want to access a decision app while someone brings up a point during a discussion taking place on the enterprise social network. Either way, QlikView offers a way forward to better decisions and better-run organizations.
  • Annotations improve context and establish a record of how decisions were madeWith this new annotations collaboration object, QlikView users can engage each other in discussions about QlikView content. A user can create notes associated with any QlikView object. Other users can then add their own commentary to create a threaded discussion. Users can capture snapshots of their selections and include them in the discussion so others can get back to the same place in the analysis when reviewing notes and comments. QlikView captures the state of the object (current selections), as well as who made each note and comment and when, for a lasting record of how a decision was made.
  • Collaborative sessions bring decision makers togetherCollaborative sessions improve the quality of business decisions for geographically-distributed and mobile users—or anyone who works in teams to analyze information and make decisions. Users can jointly interact with a QlikView document in real time―sharing selections and testing scenarios together to better uncover insights and solve problems.Collaborative sessions deliver bidirectional, real-time, interactive QlikView app sharing. Users can share a QlikView document with anyone else, including those who don’t have a QlikView license. A user invites others to join a session by distributing a one-time-use URL. Each participant interacts with the same QlikView app at the same time, for the duration of the session—without having to pass control manually from one to the other. Collaborative sessions work on tablets and smart phones as well as desktop and laptop computers.
  • The important thing to show in this screen shot is “Stop Sharing.” The person who initiated the session can at any time click “Stop Sharing” and the shared session will end.All other participants will no longer be able to see the application.The initiator can also end a session by simply closing the browser.
  • The Comparative Analysis themeQlikView 11 takes our core associative analytics capability further through the introduction of comparative analysis. Comparative analysis enables business users to choose multiple selection sets in the data and visually compare these user-defined data sets to spot trends, outliers, or differences.Why did we invest in this theme?Our customers can already do comparative analysis in QlikView 10, but we wanted to make it easier for them.In QlikView 10, when a user creates two different groupings (“selection states”) against the same data set for comparison, they must “detach” one of them. That detached set then becomes no longer interactive.In QlikView 11, users can compare 2 or more groupings of data and analyze the comparisons in a fully interactive way.
  • Business users can compare multiple selections of data inside one document, one chart, or one object, to spot trends, outliers, or differences. This makes it easier for business users gain new insights into patterns of use, opportunities and threats, and relative performance.An example might be:Let’s say you work for a food and beverage manufacturer. You want to create a marketing campaign and are trying to figure out which products to include. Perhaps you have a lot of unsold items in inventory.Compare on regions because you might want to have different groupings Maybe you want to get rid of inventory. What products to package with it to get rid of the inventory? And is it different per region?Comparative analysis in QlikView 11 allows the user to quickly spot similarities, differences, overlaps, and outliers.In this example, the user is comparing two different user-defined sets of products.In this screen shot, we are comparing sales of product subcategories by region.We have selected the year 2011.Then, in the blue section we see have selected two product subcategories: “bologna” and “cheese.” In the gray box area we have selected “donuts” and “cookies.”Insights from making these selections?In the Nordics we sell a lot more donuts and cookies than we sell bologna and cheese. In the other regions, the reverse is true.
  • This screen shot shows the same selections as in the prior screen shot: the year 2011, and two groupings: “bologna and cheese” and “cookies and donuts.” The data is displayed via a Venn diagram, which shows the overlaps in the data.On this tab in the application, we’re looking for overlaps on our customer invoices for various product groupings. This visual enables the user to quickly and easily see that for the product subcategories selected, there is no overlap between the two selected sets of data. In other words, we tend not to sell bologna-and-cheese groups (“baskets” or “sets” or “kits”) at the same time that we sell cookies and donuts.One possible insight? We might not want to run a promotion that contains both bologna and cheese and cookies and donuts.The user might continue to explore options until he or she finds significant overlap, which they could then use to identify cross-selling and upselling opportunities.
  • The mobile Business Discovery themeWith mobile Business Discovery, users get insight “on location.” Mobile Business Discovery enables people to take advantage of being in a particular place at a particular time. QlikView on Mobile delivers true Business Discovery and the full power of QlikView to the mobile device, including associative experience, interactive analysis, access to live data, and search.Why did we invest in this theme?Our mobile strategy is a direct response to customer requirements.They told us they want to be able to easily support multiple mobile device platforms.Our mobile strategy is focused on HTML5 browsers, so we can support multiple platforms with maximum interactivity.
  • Traditional BI vendors’ mobile offeringsClients specific to the device. This means that apps are built specifically for each platform (e.g., Apple iOS and Android) and form factor (e.g., smartphone, tablet) and developers must create dashboards and reports individually for each platform and form factor they support. This approach introduces considerable complexity for developers and IT in terms of data management, application maintenance, and security administration.Limited to static reports or dashboards. Most BI vendors that provide a mobile solution do no more than deliver static reports or dashboards via handheld devices. Although these reports may look good, the data sets are limited and analyses support only a small set of predefined questions. This ultimately means that the business value these apps can deliver in a mobile setting is compromised.Mobile Business Discovery with QlikViewFull power of QlikView on any deviceBring “place” into decision makingInsight “on location”
  • Support for browsers on multiple tablet platforms improves usability and time to valueOrganizations can get better usability and faster time to value from their QlikView investments by giving business users access to their QlikView apps via HTML5 browsers on a number of different devices. This means users get a seamless experience with their QlikView apps across tablets and desktop and laptop computers. They get the same functionality and interactivity, without waiting for developers to create new versions of the app for each specific mobile platform. QlikView 11 delivers full mobile functionality for tablets on Apple iOS and Android platforms.Browser support for smartphones makes optimal use of small touch screensBusiness users get improved usability by accessing QlikView on their smartphones using HTML5 browsers.When accessing the QlikView Server from a smartphone, users can choose to interact with their app one object at a time. For small-screen devices such as iPhone and Android Phone, single-object display mode delivers a more intuitive user experience without the needfor developers to rebuild applications.
  • The rapid analytic app platform themeWith Business Discovery, there are no “end users.” Every user is the start of something, a node in the creation of information that is no longer highly centered and radial. A rapid analytic app platform helps business users contribute to the creation of analysis quickly and painlessly―without requiring lots of ongoing involvement from IT.Why did we invest in this theme?Our investments in this area are driven by the broad “empowered consumer” trend, as well as specific requests from customers.With consumer technology, people expect to be able to “do it themselves” without reading manuals and calling customer support – whether we’re talking about home computers, consumer software like Facebook, or home electronics like television sets and washing machines.With QlikView 11, we continue to blur the boundary between “developer” and “business user.” We are making life easier for BI app developers, and enabling business users to do more and more on their own.
  • Traditional BI has a few shortcomings with regard to development of analytic apps. Trad’l BI has the concept of “end users” – people who are at the end of the road, passively consuming software and information provided to them. Trad’l BI can take months if not years to deploy, and requires loads of professional services.In contrast, a rapid analytic app platform takes an iterative approach to development. Softens the edge between developer and business user. A rapid analytic app platform gives business users the power that traditionally would have been available only to developers or power users / analysts.Is about developing apps quickly and painlessly. The developer has all the needed tools in one package (e.g., ETL, development, dashboard creation, etc.). The scripting language is SQL-like. User interface design is WYSIWYG. Apps can be deployed to a server for consumption over the web with just a few clicks.
  • The largest number of new and improved features in QlikView 11 fall under this theme.The three pillars of the enterprise platform theme are:Performance improvementsEase of administrationSecurity management
  • Granular chart dimension control simplifies presentation of data in chartsGranular chart dimension control enables developers to more easily create meaningful comparisons among dimensions in a chart. Developers can more easily display the lowest values, first values, top values, etc., in a single chart. This required the use of macros and advanced aggregation functions in previous releases of QlikView.In QlikView 10, QlikView can still answer these types of questions, but it requires developers to create a complex aggregation function. In QlikView 11, it can be done with just a few clicks (checking off items in properties box).This will also improve performance of chart calculation. Calculations now happen at the chart engine layer, not the presentation layer.In this screen shot:The user can choose to see which product types make up X percent of sales.In this case, they do this with a slider bar.This image shows which product types make up 80% of sales.The user can slide the bar over to any other percentage to see which products make up that percentage of sales.
  • Improved layout options make it easier to create QlikView appsQlikView 11 has several improvements that make it easier for developers and business users to createQlikView apps:Conditional enabling of dimensions and expressions makes apps more intuitive and easy to use(Describe on next slide, which is a screen shot.)Container object enhancements make better use of screen real estateContainer objects give QlikView designers a means of presenting multiple perspectives on a set of facts in a single, space-saving object. Designers can create QlikView user interfaces that are more efficient and user friendly by placing multiple objects on a single tab, snapped together in a grid. Users gain consolidated viewing context.In QlikView 10, you could only see a single object in a container. Now you can have more than one object in the same container. If you minimize a container, all objects in that container are minimized. This used to require creating a macro.Improved tab navigation makes it easier to find QlikView content. In the Ajax client, we’ve improved the way users navigate from one sheet (tab) to another within a QlikView document.Users can now scroll through tabs to find the sheet they want, or select a sheet from a drop down menu. They can also add new sheets more easily.
  • Conditional enabling of dimensions and expressions makes apps more intuitive and easy to useDevelopers can now manipulate QlikView objects to provide refined context based on a user’s action, selections, or role, or the underlying data conditions. Developers can specify conditions that control when a dimension or expression is used on a chart, or when a table is used, based on any criteria.In this screen shotIn this image, the “conditions” for showing charts are the selections the user makes.If the user selects the “sales” metric, sales trends are displayed.If the user had selected “margin” the margin charts would have been displayed.Continues can include a user’s role, selections made, or any other criteria.Another benefit: performance improvement: In QlikView 10, we had “show condition” and even the conditions that were hidden were still calculated. With this new capability, only those dimensions and expressions that are being used will be calculated.
  • The Enterprise Platform themeWhile Business Discovery platforms must deliver business user benefits such as insight everywhere, an app model, remixability and reassembly, a social and collaborative experience, and mobility―they can’t stop there. Business Discovery platforms must also provide capabilities for IT, such as security to protect sensitive data, the ability to crunch massive volumes of data quickly, and advanced yet easy-to-use administration tools.Why did we invest in this theme?With each new release, we continue to provide capabilities for IT to help them better manage their QlikView deployments.QlikView 11 is packed with new and improved capabilities designed to improve performance of large deployments and make them easier for IT pros to secure and administer.
  • QlikView enables discipline at the core and flexibility out to the edges.We enable business users to explore data at their will, while IT ensures security, reliability, and performance.
  • The largest number of new and improved features in QlikView 11 fall under this theme.The three pillars of the enterprise platform theme are:Performance improvementsEase of administrationSecurity management
  • AccessPoint is the QlikView portal where users can find and access QlikView apps to which they have security rights. With QlikView 11, AccessPoint provides a more visually appealing and user-friendly experience for people accessing QlikView apps served up by QlikView Server. New and improved capabilities include a faster and more modern design, as well as the ability for administrators to assign characteristics/attributes to documents to make them easier to find and organizeand add a searchable description to a document.Users can search for and "favorite" apps, and more easily sort apps in a detail view.
  • QlikView 11 arms business users with multiple sources of insight. Business users can more easily make decisions based not just on hard numbers, but on inputs from being in a particular place at a particular time, as well as from interactions with other people. With our investments in the five theme areas of QlikView 11, we’ve take a major step forward in QlikView becoming the standard for Business Discovery.FYI In QlikView 10, which shipped in October 2010, our themes were: Easier to useMore open and extensibleFaster performanceEnterprise manageability
