1. QlikView 11.20 Service Release 9 Beta is now available:  Qlik recently released QlikView 11.20 Service Release 9. This release includes around 80 bug fixes and no design changes, only added support for iOS8.  Personally, I’d install more stable Service Release i.e. SR 8 and you can test SR 9 on the sandbox.

2. Tagetik and Qlik OEM agreement: Interesting move by Qlik to integrate with Tagetik. Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for performance and disclosure management, financial governance and business intelligence, and Qlik have signed an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement. Through this integration, Qlik customers will be able to natively access all data stored in Tagetik applications while Tagetik’s end-users will have a powerful, fully integrated tool for data analysis, reporting and dashboarding. Good move by Qlik which benefits the Qlik Customers.

3. Qlik Launches Qlik Sense for Enterprise-class Governance and Performance: Qlik revealed some information about Qlik Sense to the industry analysts and Partners. It’s very exciting to understand the new license model. Qlik introduced more flexible token-based licensing model for Qlik Sense to provide greater flexibility for license management.  Qlik Sense tokens can be allocated to named users, or leveraged across multiple login sessions for one or more users. With the token-based licensing model, customers can deploy multiple servers, across multiple geographies, to optimize for performance and availability without paying any additional costs. They’ve reveled information on the following topics:

  • Smart Search and Smart Visualizations Accelerate Time to Insight
  • Anytime, Anywhere Collaboration Enables Broader Knowledge Sharing
  • Enterprise-Class Governance and Security Provides Centralized Control
  • Availability and Pricing
