2017: Pushing the Boundaries

My previous blog talked about our successes in 2016. Now I’d like to focus on all that’s still to come in 2017.

If you have any questions about the topics listed here, please feel free to contact me for more information.

Qlik GeoAnalytics

At the end of 2016, we were evaluating third party add-ons for Qlik to enhance the out-of-the-box geospatial/mapping functionality. We concluded that the product from Idevio in Sweden was the best available, so it was great news in January to hear that Idevio had been acquired by Qlik!

The product has been renamed Qlik GeoAnalytics and is available to purchase via the Qlik pricelist, so now is the perfect time to talk to us about how it could enhance your location-based decision-making.

Qonnections 2017

Since we became a Qlik partner, we have always attended Qonnections, Qlik’s annual Partner & Customer summit. 2017 is no different and we’ll be taking a full team over to the US next month.

We’re looking forward to getting a glimpse of the new features Qlik are developing and bringing you all the latest information. You can stay up-to-date with all that’s going on at the summit via our social media channels, so if you’re not already following us, now is a great time to do so! Follow us on Twitter!

Events

There are lots of events in the calendar, here’s what to watch out for:

  • We’re exhibiting at Big Data Analytics on 22nd June. It’s the UK’s premier cross-industry event, showcasing the latest big data insights and innovations.
  • We’re hosting the Birmingham leg of this year’s Qlik Sense Tour event on 5th July at The Belfry resort. Come along to find out all about the Qlik Platform and how it can help your organisation. Register your place.
  • We’ll also be at IP EXPO Europe, 4-5th October – Europe’s number one enterprise IT event.
  • We’ll be hosting regular webinars to showcase all that Qlik can offer.
  • Roundtable events – the next one is on insurance on 11th May. Register here.

Partnerships

We’ve got some exciting partnerships to introduce you to. Firstly, we’ve teamed up with the guys at NodeGraph to offer our customers greater insights into the data lineage in their Qlik implementations.

Available for both QlikView and Qlik Sense installations, NodeGraph provides a clear way to assess where the data in your applications has been extracted from and where it’s in use. It also provides automated documentation to support your development teams.

Another fantastic partnership for 2017 is IN4BI. We now offer IN4BI’s Platform Manager for Qlik solution, which gives development teams increased control when developing and publishing Qlik applications. This is especially powerful if you have multiple environments (e.g. Dev, Test, UAT, Prod) as it helps users to manage deployment processes, rollbacks and changes across each server efficiently.

We’ll be adding more information to our website in due course, but please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about either of these new offerings.

Get Social

We’re committed to keeping you in the loop with all things Ometis, Qlik and data analytics related.

Make sure you check out our blogs each month on a variety of relevant topics, follow us on social for news, tips and insights plus subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know about the latest Qlik offerings.

Release of Qlik Sense 4.0 & Qlik Roadmap

Qlik Sense continues to follow the release schedule of 2 x minor releases (Feb/Sept) and 1 x major release (June) per calendar year.  The following schedule shows the expected release cadence across the whole Qlik Platform:

As well as expecting some great new functionality in Qlik Sense 4.0 this June, I was pleased to read the updated ‘Statement of Direction’ from Qlik about where they see their product development resources being focussed over the next couple of years.

It’s fantastic to see the level of continued commitment to innovate from the product team at Qlik. As expected, Qlik Sense and the Qlik Analytics Platform remain the key areas for investment in 2017 and beyond.

This is turning out to be another exciting year for Ometis. We’re very proud to be the UK’s largest, dedicated Qlik Partner and we’ll continue to grow our team of experts throughout the year to make sure we can continue to deliver the highest quality Qlik solutions available.

If you have any questions relating to the topics covered above, or would like to speak to one of our team about how we can support your adoption of Qlik solutions, then please get in touch.  We’d love to hear from you! Call us on +44 (0)330 363 9900 or email info@ometis.co.uk.

Top 5 Reasons to come to the Qlik Sense Tour 2016

Join the Ometis team at the Qlik Sense Tour in Manchester this June, and give your business the tools to create visual analytics that will shape your decision making for the better. Here are five more reasons to come along:

1. Learn about the benefits of Qlik Sense

You’ll get the chance to learn about Qlik; an analytics platform that allows you to use internal and external data to create, build and present invaluable visualisations for your company. This versatile platform collates data from a vast array of sources and uses it to create intuitive dashboards, making it easier for you to visualise all areas of your business.

2. Hear from our inspiring speakers

There’ll be a host of speakers from Qlik and Ometis to learn from, as well as our own customer presentation that will be provided by Gary Higgins, Financial Director at Pipers Crisps. Find out how Pipers Crisps are using The Qlik Platform to deliver detailed analytics across their entire organisation and towards their goals of having a stockist in every postcode throughout the UK.

Each expert will provide new insights into use of The Qlik Platform, providing current examples and case studies. Feel free to network with the speakers and have all your questions about Qlik answered on the day.

3. Hands on workshop

Want to see how it all works? There’ll be a workshop in the afternoon session, giving you the chance to see first-hand how Qlik can help your business. Demos of Qlik Sense will be available to watch on-screen, but trialing the technology yourself will give you a true taste of what it has to offer. The simple interface is easy to follow and you can add as much or as little data as you like; from info on sales figures and targets to expenses and customer trends, or any business data that you need to analyse. Visualisations are created instantly and you can modify and adapt them as and when you like with more data, ideas and figures. You’ll get the chance to:

  • Build a fully functional dashboard application
  • Easily navigate your application
  • Use interactive storytelling to present your findings

If you want to come prepared or can’t make the specific date then please feel free to download the desktop edition here, and contact Ometis for any support or guidance needed.

4. Networking opportunities

You’ll get the chance to network with Qlik, Ometis and your peers. Meet other like-minded visitors from your industry and share in their knowledge, learn from their expertise and pick up new tricks and techniques. New opportunities can often arise from networking as you make more connections and raise your business profile.

It won’t cost you a penny to register! Enter a few basic details to sign up to the event and we’ll see you at Hotel Football in Manchester on 29th June at 9am.
