are you trying to make thematic maps or heat maps? Heat maps are in general derived from point data while thematic maps use the boundary data and colorized them based on a specific attribute like sales.
Not sure if you had time to look at the following insurance demo from Pitney Bowes, where they demonstrate Spectrum Spatial for BI by using the QlikView connector. The solution has a lot of capabilities but is a COTS solution for QlikView and some other BIs. https://secure.vidyard.com/share/MazYZjNQyqvdPEh10tA_vQ
