    The QlikCommunity team would like to take a minute to recognize one of our top contributors- Miguel Angel Baeyens. Mr. Baeyens has been an active member since November 2009.

    I reached out to Miguel to learn a little more about his history with QlikCommunity. Here is a brief summary from him.

    December Top Contributor Spotlight- Miguel Baeyens.png

    "I was told that the QlikCommunity was the place to be as well as the best reference point and a good source of knowledge for every QlikView Developer. I quickly joined and started searching and finding tons of interesting discussions and materials covering all kind of topics that helped me to thoroughly understand the technology. I started contributing just a few days after joining, in an effort to give back to the Community. I truly enjoy each challenge that makes me deepen my knowledge as I become more confident with the software. My eagerness does the rest.

    As my job requires me to know every step in the development process, I find every aspect of the QlikView technology useful. Hence my willingness to contribute in all sides (Server, Mobile, Design and, of course, Development)."

    We also spoke at length about some of his experiences which I wanted to share with you.

    How long have you been using QlikCommunity?

    I have been using the QlikCommunitysince my introduction to the QlikView world which goes back to November 2009,when I joined my current company as BI Consultant. I did have experience with the database world and data ware housing and data mining, using the SQL Serverfrom Microsoft above all. But never used a BI tool like QlikView. So I receiveda couple of days of training on QlikView and I was told that the QlikCommunity was a very useful source of knowledge, going even further than the Reference Manual. So off I went...

    Over the next few weeks, I asked about 3 questions and then realized that was able to help people with their own questions as I became more and more confident with the different aspects of QlikView, the script, design, Server, network issues... Since then, except for short periods of time when my job required some extra miles or- if while travelling my wife suggests not to carry the laptop with me... I have been participating every day.

    What are the most valuable resources you have found here?

    The most valuable resources are -of course- other peoples experience on how to face issues which are usually the same or very similar to the ones I'm facing. In particular reading posts from Rob Wunderlich, Oleg Troyansky, Vlad Gutkovsky and John Witherspoon among others have been very helpful. The posts which have helped me the most are usually long and have very detailed answers on how QlikView works. I also value the participation of QlikTech experts, like Stefan Bäckstrand, Johannes Sunden, Kristofer Säll, Bjorn Wedbratt and of course Jason Long. The company contributions give a lot of consistency to the structure and content of an official product forum.

    In what ways have you found that collaborating here has been helpful to your organization?

    I'm not the owner of the company I work with, but it's not unusual to receive private messages or mails asking for collaboration and ideas from co-workers and customers. Some customers end up looking for additional information related to QlikView and they are always referred to the QlikCommunity. I have learned a lot and also made many valuable contacts whom I like to reference and share.


    Is there a memorable example you can share where use of online community has made a significant difference to you or another QlikView user?

    There is one which happened last April, during Qonnections 2011. It was my first time attending this event, and QlikTech organized a Social Media/Community meeting. I was walking around the hall of the hotel reading emails on my phone lost in my thoughts, and this guy comes up to me smiling and shakes my hand. He turned out to be Richard DeRocco, who I helped few days ago with some issue. He bought me a beer and we had a long discussion about this and that. We became good friends and still send each other notes from time to time. That lovely incident marked me.It made me realize- Hey! I am helping actual people! From that day on I started to see each name and each question differently. It's not about getting points or about being a reference. It's about helping real people that don't hesitate to thank you for what you have done. I felt (and I still feel) humble and thankful, and above all, lucky.


    Thank so much Miguel for your contributions to the QlikCommunity! It wouldn’t be the same without you and others who take time to share ideas and help other members.

This event will be held online in a special forum, and QlikTech employees will be on hand to answer your questions. By having these conversations online, we can collaborate on topics that impact a large number of our community members and enable you to have conversations with the people who work directly with the product.

    For our QlikView 11 Ask the Expert event, we will have three QlikView experts from our product marketing team who have been working directly on the recent QlikView 11 launch. Each of our experts has broad rangeof QlikView product experiences but a slightly different perspective.

    Ask the Expert Event Blog post image.jpg

    This event will run on Thursday and Friday December 15th and 16th from 8am-5pm Eastern Standard Time. QlikCommunity Members are invited to ask questions or comment on discussions on the event page, and QlikView representatives will be on hand to participate and answer questions. Topics we will be focusing on arearound the different themes unique to this product launch:

    • Social Business Discovery

    • Comparative analysis

    • Mobile Business Discovery

    • Rapid analytic app platform

    • Enterprise platform

    This will be the first of our Ask the Experts event series, so be sure to send us a recommendation for topics you would like to see covered in the future.  We believe these events are a  great way for our community to learn more and participate with us directly, especially for product launches, revisions and new or hot topics in the QlikView community.

    We’re really looking forward to this event, and hope to see you there!

    As part of the relaunch of QlikCommunity this Spring, we touted a new capability called Ideas.  A facility where QlikCommunity participants can share ideas for product enhancements, see the suggestions of others, add views and indicate support by casting a supporting (or descenting) vote. As part of that launch we are busy seeding the QlikCommunity database with the content generated over the last couple of years by contributors in the SalesForce Portal.  Today we are closing the SalesForce Idea portal to any new contributions (including votes and comments) as we aim to complete the data transition into QlikCommunity.  For this SFDC based content we are preserving all names, votes, comments and ensuring its attributed correctly to your QlikCommunity profile.

    The QlikCommunity Ideas portal will be rolled out later this summer and will be open to everyone who is a registered QlikCommunity user.  We think you'll find a lot of energy and kindred spirits for your own suggestions.  We'll be announcing and demo'ing the capabilities as we near the roll out so stay tuned.  And thanks for all of the great contributions to date.

    You can find the announcement about this new feature of QlikCommunity and details of how to use it in this Community Corner post 'QlikCommunity Ideas'. Our great Community Manager, Jason Long, has even put together a snappy video to walk you thru the steps of creating an Idea and how to add your thoughts to someone else's idea.  For us on the Product Management side we are excited that this is a single location for all Community members to contribute Ideas and thoughts on those of others. We'll respond where appropriate and look to watch trends and thoughts as we go into product planning cycles. 

    But Ideas is about generating enhancement suggestions using the collective voice of the community. Some Ideas will take off and gain broad attention and support. Others may face demotion.  In the case of the latter, do not be discouraged.  What may start off as one Idea may spawn other insights and perspectives that you may not have originally had.

    Please remember that this Ideas area of QlikCommunity is for suggesting product improvements and not for requesting helping in solving a particular business problem with QlikView.  It is quite likely that in solving a problem with your current version of QlikView that you can generate an Idea to simplify the current approach. Give your community members examples of why and how your Idea can be put to good use.  Simple statements such as 'Add a flag to turn off feature XYZ' will not gain much support if your fellow community members dont see the value or application of the Idea.

    For those of you who submitted enhancement requests thru the Feature Request form in the old QlikCommunity, note that we have not imported those into Ideas.  As direct Community Member to Product Manager entries you may have formatted/worded them in a way that was not necessarily suited to viewing in Ideas. Similarly we've not brought entries from 3rd party community sites, such as LinkedIn, into this site. But we do have them in our back end system. Our intention is to keep and manage these requests with the input from QlikCommunity Ideas as we go forward.

    OK. So 'Ready-Steady-Go!' ... there are over 800 Ideas already out there, so plenty to peruse, comment and vote on (we've preserved all of the submission & voting records of those who were able to participate in the SalesForce Ideas portal).

    Happy Idea-er-ing ()

    As QlikTech’s first and only Community Manager up to this point, I have really enjoyed interacting with our QlikCommunity members as we've grown to over 57,000 members and millions of visits to our site. Last week, we added a second member to our QlikCommunity team, Sara Leslie

    Sara is an experienced community manager with over 12 years of web experience and 4 years of experience in online communities and social media. She has worked for a number of innovative companies including Cisco Systems, Brocade Communications and Johnson & Johnson. Sara has a great deal of experience in our community platform (Jive Software), so she will be jumping in as a moderator and content creator right away, and will help develop strategies for QlikCommunity as we continue to grow.

    In her free time (yes, we do step away from the keyboard once in a while!) she enjoys riding dirt bikes and competing in Dressage and long-distance trail riding on her horses.

    On joining QlikTech, Sara said, "I'm really excited to be a part of the QlikTech team! We have a lot of really cool projects in the works that help our users better leverage communities and our tools, and at the end of the day its about the user experience and how we can find new and better ways to get things done."

    Please join me in welcoming Sara Leslie to the QlikCommunity team, and be sure to add her as a friend to follow all of her great contributions!
