Affirma has announced that it is now recognized as an official Qlik Partner. Qlik is a business intelligence and visualization software company and has been a Gartner Magic Quadrant Business Intelligence leader for the sixth straight year. Affirma has formed a new partnership with Qlik to continue growing our business intelligence (BI) consulting capabilities. Affirma recognizes that BI needs and vendors are unique to individuals. The focus of Affirma’s BI consulting practice is to create better insights across all aspects of corporate data, and as a Qlik Partner, we can better fulfill that mission by expanding into Qlik products.
Your Data with QlikView, Qlik Sense and Qlik Sense Cloud
Qlik has a powerful array of software that can help you better visualize your data. The base of the Qlik products are QlikView and Qlik Sense. Both are data visualization programs, but each provides a different approach to business intelligence. QlikView is generally for programmers who want to create data models and charts for end-users while Qlik Sense is for the drag-and-drop user who wants the freedom to create data visualizations and dashboards. For data storage needs, we can help you connect Qlik Sense with Qlik Sense Cloud, which is digital storage space specifically for Qlik Sense that can be accessed by a desktop, tablet or smartphone. There is one major difference between Qlik Sense Cloud and most major cloud-space providers though – Qlik Sense Cloud Plus allows one user to share 10 GB of space with up to five users. Qlik Sense Cloud Basic, the free version, is 250 MB for five users. With Qlik Sense Cloud Enerprise, users can enjoy unlimited storage space with shared content libraries – all available for up to five users.
Enhance Your Data with Qlik DataMarket
Another Qlik product we can help you implement is Qlik DataMarket, which is data-as-a-service (DaaS). Qlik Datamarket can enhance your data sources by supplementing existing data with information centered on demographics, currency exchange rates, and other essential business and societal data. This is important because you have a greater ability to tailor data to your client’s needs, like if you were doing business in Europe and needed to translate currency into Euros or Pounds, for example. This powerful information can be searched for and matched by keyword. Qlik DataMarket is programmed with an index of over 200 synonyms, so if you search this index for the term “salary,” for example, Qlik Datamarket can also suggest terms like “wages,” “pay,” or “earnings,” to personalize the data you need. For users of Qlik Sense Cloud Plus or Enterprise, Qlik DataMarket will automatically be bundled.
Integrate All of Your Data and Share Reports
We can also help you implement Qlik NPrinting, which can create reports from QlikView and Qlik Sense. These reports can integrate data from multiple sources, such as Microsoft Office products and software-as-a-services (SaaS) providers, such as Salesforce, and then distribute reports as an email attachment or to Qlik Sense Hub, which is a centralized point for interconnected users to view.
