Governed, enterprise-class technology provides centralized control with no tradeoffs

Finding a balance between the needs of business and IT has always been a challenge. But Qlik Sense is data visualization software that was designed to serve them equally: business users get total flexibility and agility while your IT team maintains centralized control and governance.

Governed, User-Driven Creation

Business users need to be able to explore data and answer questions on demand without waiting on IT to create or update their visualization apps. But data needs to be secure, consistent and trusted—and Qlik Sense provides robust governance to make this all possible.

Shared Object Library:  Pre-built data, expressions and visualizations ensure consistent use of data and values.

Progressive Creation:  Allows you to grant users additional access to create their own visualizations, sheets and stories as their skill set increases.

Managed Data Connections:  Ensure all applications use common data sources without needing hard-coded database connections within the visualization app. Access is controlled by security rules.

Best-of-Breed, Rapid App Development

Qlik Sense delivers value in less time by giving developers a faster way to give business users access to data visualization and exploration capabilities.

Rapid Development Environment:  Easy-to-use interface enables developers to create data visualization apps, including drag-and-drop techniques and collaborative development.
