    Predictive Analytics



      I saw the presidential demo app and it looks very awesome. It got me thinking about Predictive Analytics.
      Can we do Predictive Analytics in QlikView or do we need another type of software?


      Thank you,

          This strongly depends on what you mean by 'Predictive Analytics'.

          You can easily make applications with QV that helps you to present/analyze the history data and your forecasts.

          In some cases the forecasting can be implemented. It's possible but often is not so easy as QV works with whole tables not with cells. In some cases you could even give the users ability  modify you forecasts changing the parameters.

          Anyway there is a plenty of useful tools that can help you with predictive analytics

          But in the end you usually have to interactively present and share your complex results containing a lot of dimensions, facts and relations and that is where QV can definetly help you.


          (Some tools can be integrated with QV, for example: http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-2975).
