Reporting continues to be at the core of the BI and analytics category for many. Not everyone has access to a dashboard, but most workers are still responsible for daily decision-making and subsequent action. Many execs and rank and file still prefer their daily/weekly flash style reporting to manage the business or obtain their go-to daily information.
With the introduction of the Qlik Reporting Service, Qlik puts our customers squarely on the path of a Cloud reporting experience as a complementary ingredient to our Active Intelligence vision.
What Is Qlik Reporting Service?
Qlik Reporting Services is a public API that provides the ability to compose multi-page outputs from your apps, leveraging your curated analytics in a report format. It can be easily used from within Qlik Application Automation or can be integrated into customers’ systems directly. Qlik Reporting Service is available to our Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS customers. This is our first major release on our cloud reporting journey and together with Qlik Application Automation it reimagines report task management using a low code/no code report process definition. Centralized reporting teams can now in a matter of a few inputs define burst reports to support management or operational reporting requirements and leverage their cloud eco-system to source recipients, and configure distribution channels.
We see three areas where our customers will reap immediate benefits with Qlik Reporting Service:
Automate report distributions: Time to value is an overarching benefit provided by Qlik Reporting Service. By utilizing automation, IT centralized reporting functions, as well as many savvy team members within line of business, can quickly learn to assemble, automate and accelerate the distribution of different reports needed by a wide variety of stakeholders across the organization.
Connect and Deliver: Whether through emailing to anyone (both Qlik users and non-Qlik stakeholders) or delivering through cloud storage connectors such as Dropbox, Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage, there are several options to support burst reports in Qlik Cloud.
Extend the reach of analytics: We can now provide scheduled or triggered cadence of Qlik Sense report insights to a customer’s wider business ecosystem, including to partners, suppliers, customers, agents, etc. extending Qlik’s analytics reach and increasing the investment value of our Qlik Sense SaaS analytics platform.
Qlik Reporting Service is now available to all Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS customers and includes 100 reports per tenant per month defined as a document output of a reporting services call.
We are excited about our latest data analytics innovation for the cloud. We invite you to revisit, rethink and reexamine your potential for reporting in the cloud with Qlik Reporting Service.
