Qlik Sense April 2019

The Qlik Sense April 2019 release includes significant advancements to multi-cloud capabilities – including a new enterprise Saas deployment option, as well as additions to the market leading AI capabilities, a new Qlik Sense Mobile for Blackberry client and enhancements to mapping and visualization capabilities.

Augmented Intelligence

Associative Insights

It is offering new Augmented Intelligence (AI) insights, that reveal what is hidden in the data. It is driven by the Qlik cognitive engine and Qlik associative engine working together. These Associative insights helps users to discover and understand the significance of values in the data that are not selected.

Visualization and Mapping

New capabilities were introduced: setting default map backgrounds for improved customization and Bar & Area Chart and Bullet Chart in the Visualization Bundle.

Map enhancements

The new release makes it possible to set a default map background for all new map charts. Users can choose now to set their own predefined background instead of using the Qlik standard one.

The following feature enhancements for mapping were added as well:
  – the ability to include new lines in labels, with an improved look of labels in background maps (it was also added to Qlik GeoAnalytics).
  – new size legends for map point layers.
  – the capability to insert images in map background layers. It’s suitable for simple images (drawings, floor plans, etc.).

Visualization Bundle

  – Bar & Area Chart (a bar chart with transition effects, connectors and labels).
  – Bullet Chart (a bar chart used for tracking towards a goal, showing target, or actual and bands for good/bad/average).
