This paper is designed to provide information explaining how QlikView can be integrated with R. R is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. The R language is widely used among statisticians for statistical software development and data analysis (http://www.r-project.org/).
There are a couple of ways to integrate R with other software such as QlikView. This paper focuses on using COM interface and explains the details on the integration. Please note that the integration requires some code development in Visual Basic and a basic understanding of R language. This solution is tested with small data sets and could be suitable for the cases where the business users make selections on the QlikView application and uses the selected data sets for advanced statistics by using R. The goal of this document is to provide some guideline to technical resources on how QlikView R integration can be achieved.
