June was a month that was nothing short of exciting. The June 2020 Release highlights included data analytics enhancements to augmented intelligence, visualizations, and connectivity as well as notable improvements to our data integration platform. No sooner was this release out the door that we launched QlikWorld Online - our annual global user conference. This was our first virtual QlikWorld event and it was bigger and better than ever. If you missed the event, it is still available now here on-demand thru the summer to catch our keynotes, 100 breakout sessions and too many other resources to list in our Data Discovery Zone. At QlikWorld Online it was clear that Qlik is continuing to prove its position as a BI leader in its SaaS offering which is echoed in our July monthly release to the cloud.
Here’s a closer look at highlights of our July cloud release to further our innovations in SaaS for 2020.
The July cloud release supports our continued focus on providing more functionality for QlikView users to manage, consume, and explore QlikView content in the cloud. April included automated uploads of QlikView documents to Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS for consumption, as well as the launch of our Analytics Modernization Program, which provides QlikView customers cost-effective options to adopt Qlik Sense Enterprise at their own pace. The May release included the ability to upload QlikView content to Qlik Sense Business.
Export QlikView content to Excel
The July release gives users consuming QlikView documents in the cloud the ability to export data from those documents to Excel. This capability is one of many features we’re adding to our Qlik Sense SaaS offerings to provide more flexibility for users to work with their existing QlikView content in the cloud.
Bookmarks for QlikView
The first phase of delivering bookmarks for QlikView in the cloud is here. Now, anyone using QlikView in the cloud will be able to:
Create Personal Bookmarks - Add/Remove/Replace
Apply on Top
Include Layout State
Include Scroll Position
Replace Bookmark for AJAX client
Additional support for QlikView bookmarks in the cloud will be added to future releases.
Connectivity Enhancements to Include More Data Sources
With each release we continuously provide access to more and enhanced data sources, broadening users’ ability to connect directly to business-critical data and combine multiple data sets from multiple sources. The July monthly release is no exception. We’ve added connectivity for Microsoft Dynamic CRM and JIRA. Additionally, we’ve added read-only support to view web storage data from OneDrive. With more data sources readily available, there are now more opportunities to uncover hidden actionable insights.
