New Era of Qlik™ Visualizations

Qlik™ Introduces a New Era of Visualizations

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a visualization can tell a million stories.

Our ability to tell stories is an art form as old as language itself. From ancient cave paintings to oral traditions passed through generations, the essence of stories has evolved alongside our communication methods. It began with visual tales etched on cave walls, transitioned into spoken narratives, and eventually found its way into written, printed, and typed forms.

Ultimately, modern analytics and visualizations serve the same purpose as sharing and retelling stories: guiding business users to make important and informed decisions. These decisions, however, are not made alone, and require stories to persuade and engage others, often in boardrooms or video calls. But the goal of the story remains unchanged: to inspire action, instill confidence, and ensure safety.

So, what happens in the next chapter?

Today, Qlik™ has the pleasure to announce a new era in data visualization and dashboard design. With the latest advancements in Qlik™, you can bid farewell to the days of grappling with custom style sheets and juggling third-party add-ons. It’s time to explore your creativity and take control of your narrative like never before!
