QlikView and Qlik Sense can address specific needs within an organization. There may be a need to provide self-service data visualization capabilities from any existing data model that has already been created with QlikView. Instead of recreating that model in Qlik Sense it can be converted fairly easily by utilizing the existing QlikView .QVW file.
IMPORTANT: In order for this to work - you will need to disable DATA LOADING Standard mode and revert to Legacy mode - instructions on how to do this are in the online help: Disable Standard Mode
Note: There are some limitations in regards to hidden scripts and section access security with Qlik Sense Desktop. The free product does not offer any security. Qlik Sense Server will address your security needs in these areas.
