Getting Started with K4 Analytics


Getting Started with K4 Analytics


K4 Analytics is a modular solution which seamlessly extends QlikView®and Qlik Sense® by adding integrated data entry with write-back support and leveraging the familiar spreadsheet interface.

What can you do with K4?

For example, with K4 you can manage a simple profit and loss statement with amazing speed and simplicity: just build the template in Excel®, link cells to data and use it inside Qlik (users are not required to have Excel installed).

You can enter data, text, dates, checkboxes and drop lists in K4, saving on the fly to a SQL database!

K4 does not come as a predefined business model, you can use it to build the application that you need.

How does it work?

The K4 solution is a web-service application driven by the K4 extensions for QlikView and Sense. The extension objects let it work seamlessly in your Qlik applications, in a multi-users and collaborative context.

The K4 extension loads dynamically from both Qlik and SQL datasets and merges them into an Excel file used as a template. The final application just requires the Qlik document.K4_Schema_White_Bkg.png
