As part of our ongoing SaaS product roadmap, we are excited to announce the launch of Qlik Sense Business, our newest SaaS offering designed to help groups and teams collaborate on analytics and make faster data-driven decisions.


Is this the same as Qlik Sense Cloud Business?

No, and it’s not just a name change, either. Qlik Sense Business is a new, enhanced offering with more capabilities that groups and teams can use to build and share apps for greater discoveries.
Qlik Sense Business runs on Qlik Cloud Services, our cloud-native, Kubernetes-based SaaS platform that also hosts Qlik Sense Enterprise.  Qlik Sense Business users will now benefit from the same speed, performance, and availability as our enterprise SaaS users. Additionally, Qlik Sense Business also shares the same enhanced and redesigned user interface, cloud hub, and management console as Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services.

Qlik Sense Business users benefit from:

•  Full Qlik Sense analytics capabilities, including the Associative Engine
•  All of Qlik’s latest augmented intelligence capabilities, including insight suggestions
•  Drag-and-drop app creation and fully interactive apps
•  A personal space to create your own content and share with anyone you wish
•  Five shared spaces where your team members can do-develop and share apps
•  Direct data connectivity to over 40 data sources
•  Automated data refreshes


The global roll out of Qlik Sense Business is underway. Be one of the first by to start your 30-day trial now. You will be able to create your tenant in minutes, and begin creating and sharing apps immediately – all without any downloads or installations. 

Currently a Qlik Sense Cloud Business user?

Stay tuned for upcoming details next months. We’ll tell you how you can migrate from Qlik Sense Cloud Business and subscribe to Qlik Sense Business. You’ll also be eligible for a limited-time offer savings when you migrate your existing cloud subscription.

I've been comparing the load time for QSCB to QSB.

I'm loading data from an in-house Microsoft_SQL_Server database

  • QSCB = 7.00 minutes 
  • QSB = 2 mintues 30 SEC

Another comparison.

A calculation to generate figures for one sheet for 1 table, three bar chart and 6 KPI's

The page showed aged debtors over time. For 30  60 90 days etc. I set this up using 'as of Month'. It was a time consuming slowish calculation to complete (the only slow sheet to update in the various Apps I set up for a client)

  • QSCB = 28 seconds
  • QSB =   11 seconds

Other comparisons show that QSB is around 2.5 times quicker. So a  big improvement. Hopefully its not just due to user numbers?

Hi, 

 

Looking forward to this. We just got a QSCB subscription and have already hit the limitations within QSCB.  Qliksense is becoming embedded into our organization and our Executives already want more. Really looking forward to this. And as a company, we would want to be an early adopter. 

 

Regards 

Varsh

Some doubts
If you already use Qlik Sense Cloud Business, are you required to migrate to QSB?
Suppose I'm going to migrate to QSB, how will I handle the loads I use today with BropBox connections?
DropBox has made it very, very easy. I have a data extractor that runs on the client server and saves the files in the DropBox directory that syncs to the cloud and then QSCB reads it.
Another issue is the price, we have some projects triggered, but the amount that was passed to customers is $ 15.00, but the QSB doubles the price.

If you already use Qlik Sense Cloud Business, are you required to migrate to QSB?

I assume yes. This would involve downloading Apps (I did this but removing data - by using Exit script in Apps -  as QSB struggled to handle uploading larger Apps). This part should be reasonable straight forward as once the connections are set up they apply to all uploaded Apps automatically. But maybe everyone will also need to set up a new account too. This hasn't been announced yet 
Suppose I'm going to migrate to QSB, how will I handle the loads I use today with DropBox connections?

Refer above. Qlik are working on getting the Dropbox connector set up. Although I have just checked and it hasn't been done yet.

DropBox has made it very, very easy. I have a data extractor that runs on the client server and saves the files in the DropBox directory that syncs to the cloud and then QSCB reads it.

I did the same. It worked very well. Although the Qlik View (as QV PE was much easier to set up) automatic extraction stopped at regular intervals. We have now moved to a direct extraction using the Microsoft SQL Server connector. But QSCB doesn't allow incremental loads using QVDs. Hopefully QSB will.
Another issue is the price, we have some projects triggered, but the amount that was passed to customers is $ 15.00, but the QSB doubles the price.

see above comment by Josh In addition, "Qlik Sense Business is $30 USD per user per month and we are planning in an introductory offer to our existing QSCB customers that I'm confident will be most agreeable" What I'm hoping is for current QSCB users Qlik will retain the lower price. And Qlik will also introduce a low use price. With restriction per user of hours per month (or whatever works). Make it a per user restriction (rather than a group restriction) to keep it simple. Say $30 per month for power users and maybe $15 for low use. With an easy upgrade to power user if required

Thanks for your reply Robert99.

Is the QSB already stable for use or still in the process of adaptation?

For example, I created a test account and created a connection for Amason S3, but it does not allow you to select data, it only allows you to edit or delete the connection.
