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. 

If you’re ever ready for more enterprise features – additional governance, API integrations and more data capacity – you can easily upgrade to Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services at any time.

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.

@rodrigo_dittric We sent an email out today to our annual subscribers about their migration processs.  We decided to do that now due to demand by our users and to give everyone the maximum amount of time to migrate.  Many of our users do not use the DropBox connector so we didn't want to hold things up for them.   

We do expect to have the Dropbox connector in place later this year.  If it is needed for your workflow, I would recommend you still start your migration so you can get to know Qlik Sense Business.  Then once the DropBox connector is in place you can complete your migration.  If you are looking for an alternative to DropBox, you may want to consider an S3 bucket as that connector is already in place in Qlik Sense Business.

Exporting Stories is something that we use every month to send information to customers. If this functionality is not available by the the time we are expected to migrate to the new system will the deadline be extended?

Hi,

 

So got the email and excited to move, but still having an issue with the SQL connection. On Qliksense Cloud there is an encrypt tick, but no Trust Server Certificate tick. Connection works perfect with encryption.

But on Qliksense Business cloud the Trust Server Certificate is always ticked on, but if I read the help file it states that this tick is not required.   I suspect this is causing the connection issue.

Any advise on how to rectify this?

Regards

Varsh

Hello,

I expect an email as well. I have started my "QSCB account" in July 2019. But I can see some limitations. I am open to test and if positif to migrate to this "QSB account".  Please send me the email as well.

QSB features: Can we manage "automatisation" via QMC => data refreshed daily, qvf exports daily, users access management, backup automatisation...

Kind Regards,

 

Mohamed El Hamrouni.

Hi,

We've been testing QSB for some time now and it looks very promising, however there are a couple of things that are not yet clear:

  1. One of our customers already received an email to migrate from QSCB to QSB. They use the dropbox connection, but that is still missing in QSB. It needs to be available before they can migrate.
  2. The first trial period expired. We tried to start the subscription, but were only able to extend the trial for another 15 days. The only other option is to contact sales. When will it be possible to create the subscription online (and add or delete users)?
  3. Is there going to be a free (limited) version like there is with Qlik Sense Cloud and if so, will it be possible to share apps with other people in something like a shared stream?

Keep up the good work!

Best,

Harm

@robert99 you can still invite users into QSCB as you normally would. The invitee will get an email instructing them to create a Qlik Account and then go to qlikcloud.com -Josh Qlik

@harm_dataspark Currently we are handling all transactions through a higher touch process to ensure everything runs as smoothly a possible. So you should proceed to contact sales if you are interested in purchasing. A digital commercial (“ecomm”) capabilities will be added later this year. -Josh Qlik

Dear all,

I am happy that Qlik is bringing QSCB to QSB, this is closer to QSE. My customers are SME and have then low budget for BI. These below requirements related to "scheduling processes" often come in discussion, I would like then to know if  these features are available (or soon) in QSB:

* Automatization of Visuals exports => make available a sheet with visuals to an internal website

* Automatization of QVD exports(a table) => to communicate data extractions to another system

As the console will be available in QSB, I might expect some scheduling of processes might be included. This scheduling process often lacks if we are not in QSE. If not possible with the QSB version, can we imagine a workaround that fits SME budget?

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mohamed.

Hi guys,

Is there any way to be notified when the Dropbox connect has returned in Qlik Sense Cloud Business as some of our clients rely on this and we cannot finalise their migration from Cloud to Business until this is back up and running?

 

Thanks!

@lachlanwwells 

We'll post an announcement in the innovation blog as we know many people are keen to see this go live in Qlik Sense Business.  You can subscribe to the blog to get all the updates. 

For clarity, Qlik Sense Cloud Business still has the Dropbox connector so there shouldn't be any disruption to current usage.

Have you any idea when Dropbox might be added to QSB. I can wait a short spell (like a week) but we have users now waiting for this conversion. Some new users where I said wait for QSB. So if it could be months I will just set up a work around (uploading Excel files into QSB as this is now all the client uses Dropbox and Qlik for now. But before everything was loaded from Dropbox. And the company use Dropbox a lot not just for Qlik)

 

Qlik Sense is a brilliant product. But sometimes (critical) information like this can be a bit lacking.

 

Thanks Robert

Good afternoon,

In the account I am using for testing, when an app is created within the workspace, it does not allow sharing.

Still waiting for my shorttime link to set up QSB, the mail mentioned to contact customer support should i not receive this email until 2019-09-20.

Is there a email adress to contact, i have a hard time to reach customer service via the web portal. Keeps asking me for logging in but doesnt seem to accept my credentials which work for  QSCB?

No section access is a bummer. Basically most wanted feature.

Hi,

I just added a user to our QSB environment and gave him 'admin' rights on space. However, he is not able to access the data load editor nor can he refresh the data for apps that he has not created. This makes it hard to work with more people on the same app. I would expect someone who has admin rights to do everything with an app that the owner of the space can. But there can only be one owner... Or am I missing something?

There is a failure to validate new user registration.

When the email of a user has already been invited by the administrator login and he makes the registration, and if the user then tries to register again with the same company email by this link (https://www.qlik.com/pt-br/trial/qlik-sense-business), registration is allowed again.

@sir_stone the Qlik team is finalizing the process of sending invites out to all annual QSCB subscribers this week and you should have an invite in the next few days if you don't have it already. To confirm you haven't received the email, double check your spam or junk folders (remembering the right email address).

If you're a monthly subscriber, you'll get your invite later (more details to come).

If you haven't gotten it in the next few days, open a support ticket without logging in, and give the support team your email address and subscription information. They know how to follow up and make sure you're on the list and resend the invite email.

Good morning Qlik team

I am about to migrate from a client's QSCB to QSB, but in my test account I have identified 3 issues that make migration impossible:

1 - When an app is created in a workspace you created, it does not allow sharing the app.

2 - In the personal workspace allows sharing, but there is another problem: The content that was developed, views are not visible.

We are working as fast as possible to delivery the Dropbox connector however I do not expect it to be in the next week or so.  It is expected closer to the cutover date.

Hi @rodrigo_dittric 

I spent some time with the team to look at the registration issue you brought up. It's possible I misunderstood, but we tried to have owners of two different tenants invite the same (non-owner) user to both tenants. In that case the first invite prompted the user to fill out the form to create a user. We logged out and opened a new incognito window and then went through the second invite process, and when the user clicked on the link, they were only prompted for a password; the account had already been created and was correctly being recognized.

Additionally, our testing shows that if a tenant owner is invited to a different tenant, they get the same behavior (simply asking for password).

If this is not your experience, or if there is a third scenario that is not covered here, could I ask you to record a video and send it so we can see what you're seeing?

Thank you!

Joe

We have tested this, and Section Access works in the new Qlik Cloud environment.

It's just that the "username" is a little bit difficult to find out, but one can test it with the osuser() function.

 

One has to enter the "IDP Subject" as USERID which you can find for your users in the QMC|License dialog

Hi

@Josh_Good 

@JoeParkerQlik 

Ive set up the main QSB account and invited one user (as a test to see how it all works)

The user accepted the invite and then got the screen below (and went no further at this point)

This seems to conflict with Josh's statement above

"The need for users who already have a Qlik Account to provided details again was a bug that has now been fixed."

is this an issue if an invited user just signs up again.

And will everyone have to sign in again in this way (I want to send out clear instructions for the users as we convert)

 

Thanks

I didn't understand your text very well, but the app that I matched for convenience doesn't show the views

Another problem is that it does not allow the option to share an app from a workspace appears.
