Qlik has released QlikView 12, which brings QlikView onto the same QIX Associative Data Indexing Engine (QIX) that powers Qlik Sense. By having Qlik’s complete product portfolio on the same engine, Qlik delivers greater compatibility between its products and ensures that future investments made in the QIX engine for performance, security, and connectivity will benefit both QlikView and Qlik Sense customers.

Key features of QlikView 12 include:

Latest QIX engine: QlikView 12 now runs on the second-generation QIX engine that powers Qlik Sense. QlikView customers will benefit from the performance improvements delivered via a seamless upgrade through the updated QIX engine and are able to more easily share data models between Qlik Sense and QlikView.

Security enhancements: QlikView 12 boosts stronger encryption and improved encryption handling, with the ability to meet the highest level of security requirements for the most demanding companies and government and military organizations. Centralized client request handling and XML parsing are enhanced to evolve with security best practices and cryptographic standards.

Powerful mobile experience and true device independence: Now all functions available in the QlikView Web client are accessible on touch devices without limitations, including exploration, collaboration, and creation capabilities. In addition, on hybrid devices, users can now switch between using a mouse, pen, and touch without having to refresh applications manually.

Improved clustering: QlikView 12 offers improved scalability supporting more nodes in a QlikView Server cluster. The result is significant performance improvements for organizations supporting high numbers of users in multi-node environments.

Native connection to Web services: A new RESTful API connector improves compatibility with social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), CMS systems (Alfresco, Documentum, Adobe), and other online services. There is no longer a need for a third-party vendor or extensions to support this type of connectivity.

Free and subscription-based data-as-a-service: The on-demand availability of normalized data sources that users can quickly pull in for added insights are key to more informed decisions to drive competitive advantage. With Qlik DataMarket, users can access a comprehensive library of external data directly within QlikView 12 to allow users to augment and cross reference their internal data to gain context and drive deeper insights.

QlikView 12 is available immediately. QlikView 12 Personal Edition is available for free download at http://www.qlik.com/download. Although QlikView 12 is a simple upgrade, the common data model and engine may be an opportunity to assess analytics needs across the Qlik product portfolio. Qlik Services can assist customers with planning and transitioning between products as appropriate.
