Business Value of Qlik Web Connector with QlikView (Google Analytics)

Dear All,

Besides the Qlik Web Connector can connect real-time data from Google Analytics. Is there any other benefits for using it?

Regards,

Leo

Hi Leo,

The Qlik Web Connectors is a suite of over 40 connectors that perform in a consistent manor and reduces the technical skills required to extract data from supported platforms.

Benefits, to name a few, includes:

  • You don't need to worry about API changes, since the connectors are maintained
  • Wide range of supported platforms to meet an organisation's ever changing needs
    • Use the free Standard connectors or,
    • Subscribe to only the Premium connectors you need
  • It's a small learning curve...
    • you just need to add the generated Qlik script in your Qlik apps
    • once you can use one connector, you can probably use the others since they're laid out in similar ways
  • It works with both QlikView and Qlik Sense
  • Once the data is in Qlik, analyse it like any other data
    • in isolation or mashed with other data sets
    • enrich Qlik data with the included sentiment connectors
  • The list of connectors is increasing to meet changing needs

I hope this helps to highlight some of the benefits.

If you have any concerns or further questions, let us know.

Dear Darren,

Glad to see your respond. However, the users think the benefits are not convincing enough.

They just think export data from Google Analytics as Excel, and then load it into Qlik.

They do not want to pay more money for the web connector unless some convincing ROIs there.

Regards,

Leo
