  • Set Analysis for Beginners

    Michael Tarallo, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Qlik

    Sometimes you need to look from another angle to get a better, more complete perspective. The same is true for your data. With Set Analysis you can restrict metrics to a specific set of data, define conditions, and ignore selections, enabling a deeper dive into the information in front of you.

    In this session, you will learn:

    What Set Analysis is
    How Set Analysis is used
    The Set Analysis Expression
    Our new Set Expression Builder

    You'll see how the expression leverages data already loaded into Qlik with demonstrations that work in both QilkView and Qlik Sense.

  • Advanced Analytics Embedded Into Business Processes

    Moving from "Discovery" tools that allow free exploration of data, to more process driven analytics can magnify the impact of your data driven solutions. At Ford, we are implementing advanced analytics in all areas of our business. The magic is in how it is implemented - not how advanced the analytic might be. This session will showcase some of these implementation techniques that are yielding extraordinary economic benefits!

  • Secrets of the Qlik Architect

    Deepak Vadithala (DV), BI & Data Visualisation lead, JPMorgan & Chase

    In the past, to become a Qlik developer, one needed to know Scripting, Data Modelling, Set Analysis and SQL etc. However, with the launch of Qlik Sense, a Qlik developer’s role has changed considerably. With Qlik Sense offered as a self-service platform, it is essential for Qlik developers to expand their skills beyond data modelling. Qlik Sense has many APIs to extend, embed and expand. It is a rapidly evolving product and keeping up with the rapid growth of new technologies is not an easy job.
    Many Qlik developers lack foundational architecture skills, and traditional software architects do not understand the Qlik ecosystem and capabilities. Software architecture introduced a lot of jargons and metrics, which might be overwhelming for developers which could lead to a skill gap.
    Having enterprise and solution architecture skills is the foundational building blocks of a successful Qlik Sense installation & implementation. This session will teach you how to think like an architect and will explain the different types of architects. The session will also introduce architecture jargons and it will highlight the importance of agile architecture and the roles, expectations, and “ilities” a Qlik architect. Finally, this session will cover different topics of enterprise architecture such disaster recovery, mitigating SPOF, building resilience and finally security landscape.
