Qlik worked best with a dimensional data-architecture and the official recommendation as the best compromise between efforts and results is a star-scheme. But Qlik is very flexible and therefore you could mix your architecture like you want - it depends only on your requirements, knowledge, experience, time and budget to develop the most suitable architecture respectively datamodels.

To understand the differences between both approaches and how it could be implemented within Qlik see here:
