Yesterday at our annual Qonnections partner summit in Miami, QlikTech VP Product Management Donald Farmer presented the themes for “QlikView.next,” the code name for the next generation of the QlikView Business Discovery platform.
QlikView.next will be a series of software releases centered around these themes:
- Gorgeous and genius. QlikView.next will continue to win the hearts of QlikView business users and IT professionals alike with a user interface that is intuitive, fun, and highly productive. QlikView.next will make it easier than ever before for users to understand the context of numbers by exploring associations, comparisons, and implications.
- Compulsive collaboration. Compulsive collaboration is collaboration that is so natural and easy that people can’t resist participating. QlikView.next will put QlikView at the forefront of users’ shared decision making.
- Mobility with agility. This theme is about access to full Business Discovery from any device. We are designing the QlikView.next user experience starting with mobile first, rather than developing a desktop experience and then modifying it to work on tablets and smartphones.
- Enabling the new enterprise. With QlikView.next, IT pros will be able to optimize their QlikView environments and offer self-service Business Discovery to growing numbers of users, utilizing ever-increasing volumes and variety of data.
- The premier platform. With QlikView.next, we are continuing to focus on delivering platform capabilities like data connectivity and application programming interfaces to our customers and partners. This theme is about enabling customers and partners to quickly and easily deliver apps and solutions that are perfectly relevant to their users and customers.
We are moving full speed ahead to execute on the QlikTech mission statement: “simplifying decisions for everyone, everywhere.” The primary influences on our vision for QlikView.next include the consumerization of IT, social software taking root at work, pervasive mobility and device independence, and the Big Data explosion.
