According to Qlik, they are “the most flexible Business Intelligence platform for turning data into knowledge.” More than 24,000 organisations worldwide have enabled their users to easily consolidate, search, and visually analyse all of their data for unprecedented business insight using Qlik’s simplicity. Taking just minutes to learn, the automatic associations of Qlik create endless possibilities for making ad hoc queries without requiring tediously defined structures and hierarchies, as is typical in other data analysis tools. Qlik promotes unrestricted analysis of application data, helping users make time-saving and accurate decisions.

Qlik brings a whole new level of analysis, insight, and value to existing data stores with user interfaces that are clean, simple, and straightforward. With Qlik, businesses can rapidly deploy fast, flexible Business Discovery apps that provide business users with dynamic views of the information they need to make decisions. Unlike most business intelligence software, with Qlik business users can ask and answer the next question, and the question after that, without going back to an expert for a new report or data visualization. The answers are already there, available through simple clicks and taps.

At the core of Qlik is their patented software engine that generates new views of data on the fly. Qlik compresses data and holds it in-memory, where it is available for immediate exploration by multiple users. For datasets too large to fit in-memory, Qlik connects directly to the data source. Qlik delivers an associative experience across all the data used for analysis, regardless of where it is stored. Users can start anywhere and go anywhere; they are not limited to predefined drill paths and preconfigured dashboards.
