Throughout your career you will experience many firsts. Your first completed project, your first customer success, your first promotion, your first win and of course....your first loss. I wanted to do something different for you all, so in this edition of the Qlik Innovation Blog I share my story of my first encounter with Qlik's Associative Difference. (Actually known as the Associative Experience back then.)This is a true story dating back 14 years ago. Now at the time I was NOT at Qlik, I was working for an Open Source BI competitor and in a very competitive sales situation competing against Qlik, QlikTech at the time, and its data visualization product QlikView.I originally planned sharing this as an opening presentation story in slide-form to open my session at QlikWorld, but due to the pandemic I did not have that chance. So I decided to take it a step further and create a short story about my experience in an entertaining and fun way. I hope you enjoy it.Please keep in mind, just to reiterate - the tale I share was my experience as it happened 2006 when at a competitor so I refer to older products and company names. We all know that Qlik certainly has evolved since then, and I have been with Qlik for almost 9 years. So definitely a lot has happened, especially with the introduction of our next generation data analytics platform, Qlik Sense. Today our unique patented associative engine still uncovers hidden insights but is now also combined with powerful AI capabilities that makes finding answers quicker and easier and is now available in a SaaS deployment model, allowing you to scale your enterprise analytics to meet the ongoing demands of your business.So take 5 mins to sit back and relax and enjoy the story of my first encounter with the Associative Difference.For more information, videos and demos of the Qlik Associative Difference, please see these resources:Register for the August Do More with Qlik Sessions:https://youtu.be/Ru1NqbSt3EMhttps://go.qlik.com/Do-More-with-Qlik-Webinar-Series.html?sourceID1=YTShareTry Qlik Sensehttp://qlik.com/tryqliksenseIntroduction to the Qlik Associative Experiencehttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Design-Blog/The-Associative-Difference-Tour-Redux/ba-p/1530203Associative Insights - new augmented intelligence capabilitieshttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Design-Blog/Qlik-Associative-Insights-A-Simple-Yet-Practical-Example/ba-p/1573869Practical Example of the Associative Experience - Uncovering hidden insightshttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Design-Blog/A-Practical-Example-of-the-Associative-Difference-Uncovering/ba-p/1552384Global Smart Searchhttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Design-Blog/You-should-be-using-Global-Smart-Search-Part-of-the-Associative/ba-p/1561960

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.

My boss asked me recently how many charts Qlik Sense supports, which led me to thinking: What counts as a chart? Should I just count the number of charts in the asset panel and the visualization bundle? That’s easy: 28, but there are many more...
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.
Due to COVID-19, we’re experiencing a massive shift in the way work is done – from home. BYOD has become the norm, rather than the exception. One of the coolest features of Qlik Sense is its responsive design. Instead of having to test and adjust dashboards separately for different screen sizes including mobile devices, you want to rely on a product that does the hard work for you.Responsive design automatically and intelligently adjusts visualizations to the device you’re using. This is particularly important when mobile is widely-used within your organization. Responsive design can boost your productivity in numerous app development and consumption scenarios. It’s more than just mobile, optimizing for all screens and adjusting to monitors of all sizes, with different aspect ratios, or when creating a custom sized window when multi-tasking. In a recent survey of former QlikView-only customers who adopted Qlik Sense, 70% ranked mobile capabilities extremely important or important factors in choosing a modern BI solution.With responsive design, users have the freedom to work in and across all environments and screen sizes without constraint, and designers need not be concerned with ensuring their content will render correctly on all devices. Apps can be built and consumed anywhere.As a mobile analytics solution, Qlik Sense actually analyzes data, while most other BI and visualization tools only provide relatively static, pre-defined views to mobile devices. Qlik Sense does not restrict exploration and analysis on mobile devices in any way. It delivers your analytics directly to the point of decision. All features: visualization, analysis, creation, collaboration, and administration are available anywhere. Through Qlik Sense responsive design, smart visualizations are arranged on an adaptive grid, adjusting to the display’s form factor. Adjustments include:Re-sizing chartsRe-scaling level of data detailOptimizing visual representations themselvesAdditionally, Qlik Sense has a native mobile app to allow users to consume their dashboards even if they are fully offline and disconnected from any network. Once a user has downloaded a dashboard to their mobile device, they have access to all the features, including search and full interactivity offered by the Qlik Associative Engine. The best part is that you will always operate within the governance boundary defined by your organization, even when offline. This is true self-service.No matter the device, Qlik Sense delivers a completely optimized experience. Try Qlik Sense Business, with new functionality that allows you to upload and consume QlikView documents from a single hub.
