Qlik is pleased to announce the June 2020 product release, furthering our leadership in augmented intelligence, best in class visualizations, and platform extensibility.    Also, this release delivers updates to several data integration products, including performance improvements, expanded cloud platform support, and new certifications.  

 


5 min Summary

We are excited about the advancements made in Augmented Analytics, as we are introducing business logic into our cognitive engine.  With this new capability, customers can create metadata and rules to inform and guide the behavior of Insight Advisor when generating visualizations and insights.  In addition, supporting our global footprint, Insight Advisor now supports multiple languages when using search-based insight generation now with French, Spanish, and Russian, with additional languages planned for future releases.

Our cloud offering continues to get stronger to ensure that our customers can easily adopt our SaaS and client managed offerings, as we deliver high-value features to expand use cases and improve user experience and platform management.  With this release, we expanded connectivity delivering additional high demand data sources like Qualtrics, added more connectors in the Qlik Sense Add Data interface including Google Analytics and Twitter, and we have enhanced existing connectors.     

The June release also includes new embedded analytics capabilities that deliver further extensibility and value to the developer community and beyond.     With this, we launched Qlik.dev - our new developer portal for discovering, learning, and referencing APIs for cloud editions of Qlik Sense.  Beyond the portal, customers can now automate Qlik Sense SaaS editions into their DevOps processes with Qlik CLI driving greater analytic efficiencies from the command line.    And Qlik’s Nebula.js 1.0 library is framework agnostic, making it easier to embed Qlik analytics into other web applications and create custom visualizations to support even more customer use cases.   Don't miss Mike Tarallo's next "Do More with Qlik" series, which will focus on these elements of the release, featuring Jeff Goldberg who is the PM for all things embedded - APIs, Integration, and Identity.   Register here

Qlik Sense is “looking better than ever.”  In the past year, we have delivered over 50 new visualizations and dashboarding enhancements – and the June 2020 release takes us even further.   

Sparklines:  Enhancements of the straight table continue.  The cells can now feature a mini chart, a measure across a second dimension, also known as sparklines.

Table Customization Options:   The tables (straight and pivot) now have more options to customize the user experience including setting the scroll bar size and highlight rows on hover.

Bullet Chart Improvements: The bullet chart is a custom-built graph for presenting KPIs in a clear and informative way as possible. We have improved the bullet chart in Qlik Sense, with more customization options and support for standard Qlik Sense functionality.

Custom Tooltips Enhancements:  A number of enhancements to custom tooltips have been made, including:

  • Support for line charts
  • More information available in all charts
  • Titles and descriptions can now be dynamic through the use of expressions
  • Set expressions and expression modifiers such as ‘ALL and TOTAL are now supported
  • We have added the ability to hide default rows

 

Org Chart Enhancements:  It is now easier for users to interact with the Org Chart, through improvements such as a home button, autozoom, fully expanded mode, and border color options.

In summary,  Qlik Sense is stronger than ever with visual analytics. Check out our Qlik Sense Visualization Showcase app to see all this in action.

As always, you’ll find improvements to our value-added products, giving our customers more reasons to expand the possibilities of Qlik Sense deployments.  We have simplified and enhanced the installation process for Qlik Insight Bot, allowing our customers to get started more quickly and easily.  We have integrated licensing for Qlik Alerting with the Qlik Licensing Service, allowing customers to more easily manage licenses.  And our Qlik NPrinting customers will now benefit from expanded NewsStand functionality and the ability to customize visualizations with Qlik Sense themes.

Finally, this release delivers updates to several data integration products.  This release includes performance improvements and architectural updates for Qlik Catalog and delivers expanded support for source and target endpoints in Qlik Replicate, along with new certifications for Snowflake and expanded support for Databricks in Qlik Compose.

Don't forget to register for the next Qlik Insider series happening in August, it will cover the details of this release, and also the expected new features coming in July and August.   Register here.

Hi @Michael_Tarallo  

Can we upgrade from Qlik Sense Feb 2020 SR1 version directly to Qlik Sense June 2020 version? 

Usually, its mentioned in the upgrade notes section in the release notes but I didn't see it this time. 

Thank you!

Hello Sujeet - I would recommend you reach out to Qlik support first to confirm - but you can always try the install from Feb to Jun on your test environment first - if the upgrade is not supported - it should tell you. Thanks for your question.

Sirpod90 - if you mean scheduled refreshes for dynamic views - so I can kick it of on an interval - I don't think that is in there yet.

Hi @Michael_Tarallo 

The new Chart Monitoring feature is an important improvement for Qlik Sense and it's high on the wish-list of some of our largest customers that are using Qlik Sense on Windows. Really dissapointed to read that this will become available in Qlik Enterprise Cloud and Qlik Sense for Kubernetes, but not in Qlik Sense for Windows.

Hi @Michael_Tarallo 

This is getting more and more ridiculous. Dangling new features in front of our nose and then tell us, it's only for some of the users. Are you actually trying to neglect all your long-term customers that moved from QV to QS? Do you really expect them to also move to SaaS now? Not even talking about the cost here, but the effort to move stuff?

Christoph

Hi @Michael_Tarallo 

About the Chart Monitoring, you posted this is only available in Qlik Sense cloud-based ans SaaS (enterprise / business) deployments of Qlik Sense, but not Qlik Sense on Windows. What do you mean with "Qlik cloud-based"? Does this also include Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes?

Thanks

Steven
