Over the last 11 months, the web guys at QlikTech and I have made a lot of tweaks and improvements to make the QlikCommunity site easy to use and navigate for our members. However, the main reason that we've grown to over 26,000 members in that time is the great content that is found on this site. If it weren't for the discussions happening in the forums, great example QlikView files in the Share QlikViews section, and interesting blog entries from QlikView developers and users, no amount of site features and improvements would keep you, our members and visitors, engaged and returning regularly.

Most of the content on this site has been created by our members, and we hope that this will continue. That being said, one of our goals for taking QlikCommunity to the next level is more QlikTech-generated content for this site. Our employees are immersed in all things QlikView every day, and we are working to bring more of their knowledge, insights and opinions to you. We recently launched the QlikView Blog, which is collectively written by a handful of QlikTech employees and will cover topics ranging from enterprise deployments to sales strategies to notifications of new releases and updates.

Some of the other ideas we've been considering include:

  • A video tour of our R&D facility in Lund, Sweden
  • Video interviews/chats with members of the Product Management, R&D and Support teams
  • Live chat sessions with QlikTech employees
  • More in-depth technical screencasts, how-tos and demos
  • Hosting QlikView application "contests", where we will provide a dataset and choose the best application submitted from the Community

These are just some ideas that we've come up with, but ultimately, we want to produce what YOU want to see: content that helps you know more about QlikView and use it more effectively every day. We'd really appreciate it if you could give us some feedback on the ideas presented above. If you have something else you'd like to see from us, we'd love to hear that as well.

Thanks for helping us improve the QlikCommunity!

Hello to all! I hope that you had a great end to 2009, and your 2010 has gotten off to a productive and exciting start!

As you can see, we've made a few changes ourselves over the past few months. The most noticeable change has been the redesign of QlikCommunity to reflect the new design of our corporate website. While we are extremely proud of the site, we aren't comfortable resting on our laurels; we are committed to constant improvement to make the site as easy to use and useful as possible.

The most important measure of a website's utility and functionality is the opinion of the people who use it every day: YOU. Without an easy to use interface and a reliable infrastructure, our members will not create and foster the great discussions that are the lifeblood of a great online community.

To that end, we've created a 5-minute survey that we'd like our members to complete, which will help us to understand who is using the site, what features you find the most useful, what you think we're doing well, and most importantly, the parts of the site (and the QlikCommunity as a whole) on which we need to improve. We will keep the survey open for the next 30 days, and once we've collected all of the information, I will share it with you on this blog.

I ask you to please take a few minutes to fill out this survey, and help us to keep improving the QlikCommunity for you and the more than 25,000 members that have joined us here. Thank you!
