As Business Discovery is being adopted as an alternative BI platform, QlikView.Next will give users the immediate insights they need and IT professionals the enterprise manageability and governance they require.

It supports the way human curiosity naturally Standing out from the crowdsearches, filters, questions, and finds associations in data to find meaning in information – more easily revealing insights and enabling decisions in the process.

“We’re excited by the direction QlikView is moving with QlikView.Next,” said Marc Hoppers, Managing Partner of Cogent Company. “The five key tenets of QlikView.Next are that it will be 1. gorgeous and genius, 2. mobile first, 3. compulsively collaborative, 4. open and standards based, and 5. made for the enterprise with scalable and flexible architecture and licensing.”

“Customers want to move from passively receiving reports to actively participating in analysis. These evolving requirements lead them to replace traditional BI with QlikView to put knowledge in the hands of those making decisions, increasing competitive agility and creating demand for Business Discovery as their core platform,” says Anthony Deighton, CTO and senior vice president, Products at QlikTech. “We built the category for user-driven, self-service BI and now we continue to expand the market by creating an extensible platform that companies can consider the centerpiece of their actionable intelligence strategy.”

QlikView.Next’s key value as an alternative BI platform is in its use of Natural Analytics which places data into the natural flow of how people think as they make decisions. Natural Analytics enables anyone to explore complex data, making and sharing discoveries using natural human abilities. It enables people to:

  • Discover through Association & Comparison:  Supporting natural human curiosity, Natural Analytics helps people progress from a single data point to make connections to other data points. It intuitively guides users toward the answers they’re looking for, while uncovering new and unanticipated data relationships. Users easily see connections or uncover disconnects or surprises.
  • Decide through Collaboration & Data Dialogs™:  People can engage in interactive, live discussions around data and decision paths instead of static data or predetermined decision paths. These Data Dialogs help create consensus as multiple people make, mark and share discoveries and work together through collaborative sessions. In this way, Natural Analytics enables truly social BI.
  • Do through Persuasion & Action:  Natural Analytics enables people to easily show the data relationships behind their conclusions, and to interactively explore contrary points of view in the data as decisions are considered. There is no longer a need to “take a discussion off-line” to allow time for new reports or visualizations to be developed, because questions can be answered and answers validated immediately in a 90379ecca398a0e7372e9a03e0b44720discussion or presentation.

“Cogent’s followed the trends of business leaders, and it’s clear that analytics is at the top of executives agendas, and not just the top technology executive,” said Marc Hoppers, after a long conversation with industry analysts.
