QlikView’s unique, patented in-memory associative technology is the foundation of our next generation business intelligence (BI) platform. It virtually eliminates problems and complexity plaguing traditional disk-based business intelligence tools – an inability to rapidly create analyses, slow access to limited data and data sources, and reliance on IT to create and change analysis. QlikView’s in-memory analysis solution empowers users to consolidate disparate data sources, search associatively, and visualize and analyze answers to critical questions.
QlikView’s in memory approach eliminates the dependence on rigid, pre-built data models. This allows users true self-service, so they can easily create their own dashboard view of the data, allowing IT to focus on managing capacity and deployment rather than servicing an endless queue of analysis report change requests.
Because QlikView operates entirely in memory it can combine business intelligence data from any number of sources with high performance, regardless how those sources perform on their own. This in-memory technology provides the fastest way to gain insight into how different parts of a business relate. QlikView achieves this by associating data into memory from any source such as: transactional systems like Oracle, SAP®, salesforce.com; traditional disk-based data warehouses like Business Objects, Cognos, Hyperion; databases like SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL that power your custom applications; and local data in Excel and flat files. And, because the business intelligence data is held in memory, it eliminates disk-based cube limitations, making all your data quickly accessible.
QlikView allows users to search and interact with their business intelligence data in the same way they think – associatively. Users can instantly see connections and relationships between data residing in different applications, systems, organizations, and regions, all by themselves. For instance, a car dealership chain could load maintenance data and vehicle lease trade-in history data into the QlikView in-memory solution regardless of where it is and instantly see relationships between maintenance records, lease trade-in timelines and car value, allowing them to predict which customers are likely to trade-in leases, and which customers are most profitable.
The human ability to visually perceive relationships in business intelligence data is our most powerful analytic capability. QlikView’s in memory technology gives users the ability to see information in charts, graphs and tables, as well as the ability to interact with those visual analytics in real time. Everything in the QlikView in-memory reporting can be clicked on, and every click provides a new view of the underlying business intelligence data instantly.
QlikView’s associative analysis allows you to see explore relationships that go beyond the linear and obvious. Never seen or used a QlikView application before? You can go and try one right now at demo.qlikview.com. In just a few minutes, you’ll not only see charts, graphs and numbers, but how associative analysis lets you ask any question, test any hypothesis, explore any angle, and share what you find.
The QlikView in-memory business intelligence solution can be deployed to ten people or hundreds of thousands; it can scale from small data sets to terabyte scale dataset with billions of records. Because computer memory is thousands of times faster than hard disks, QlikView’s technology foundation of in-memory BI can draw from multiple data sources, conduct sophisticated analyses, and rapidly and reliably serve them up to all simultaneously-connected users worldwide without load issues.
