Advanced Analytics

Doing Data Science By Matching The Best From Two Worlds

Qlik is a brand, when it comes to model data, foster the understanding of logical associations via its iconic green-white-grey scheme and to visualize information. By introducing the Advanced Analytics Integration for Python and R in the June 2017 Qlik lifts its disruptive experience to new heights. From now on, it is possible to leverage advanced and predictive analytics in a real-time fashion and melt them with Qlik’s awesome capabilities. While there are a lot of courses and lectures out there focusing on Qlik and Advanced Analytics individually, this Sense Deep Dive is different!

It is designed to teach the essentials for combining Qlik and R in a real-time integration and to get the most out of both cutting edge standards in data analytics. In a truly step-by-step approach, we start with the basic like installing and configuring Qlik, R and the Advanced Analytics Integration. Next, we review central concepts of Qlik and R and will implement simple examples. Then, we will make our way up to more complex use cases and learn how to implement different algorithms to solve a specific business case, learn how to use training and test data properly or to deal with problems like imbalanced datasets. Beyond that, we will learn how to visualize our analytical findings interactively and how to avoid common pitfalls. Also, we learn how to monitor and debug our solutions. Advancing forward, we will see how the progress in automated machine learning enables organizations and individuals to leverage Advanced Analytics on large scale by turning the Business Analysts into an Analytic Superhero. Finally, we will build our own project and use our (newly acquired) R knowledge to leverage its APIs for integrating our models with Qlik.

So, with every new lection we build on what had already learned and move one extra step forward. After every diving session, we will introduce a new valuable concept, that you can apply right away in live examples.

In summary, this Sense Deep Dive has been designed for Qlik developers und Power Users with a solid experience and practice, which want to increase the analytical value added by their solutions or are keen to start adding advanced analytics competences to their portfolio. Even with no deep statistical background or expert knowledge in R you will be successful on this deep dive, since the concepts and methods used are explained throughout the course!

Advanced Extension Development

Learn How To Build State-Of-The-Art Visualization Extensions And How To Leverage All Needed Qlik APIs

Qlik’s flagship product Qlik Sense is the modern standard of self-service analytics platforms. Designed by a mobile first approach, it can be accessed from any device by the responsive web client, developed in AngularJS, providing an easy to use drag-and-drop interfaces to create flexible, interactive data visualizations. Data analysts can explore data with smart visualizations that automatically adapts to the used parameters. Although many types of data visualizations are already shipped within the product, we’re more than lucky Qlik provides a plug-in mechanism to extend the visual UI by so called visualization extensions. Visualization extensions use the same set of technologies as standard Qlik Sense visualizations, and if developed properly, the handling of them is identical to standard visualizations.

This Sense Deep Dive is designed to teach fundamentals of Qlik Sense visualization extensions and how to develop them. This includes to understand concepts of the used web technologies and frameworks like AngularJS and the necessary building blocks and components of an extension. Beyond that, you will learn how to use the given APIs for using data structures and how to integrate interactions.

The deep dive will also give you insights into the Qlik opens source projects such as Enigma.js, the engine API wrapper, and how to adapt and implement them. But we will not stop here. We will teach you also our best practices and advanced technics like our own ready-to-go frameworks we’ve developed over the last couple of years.

This Sense Deep Dive has been designed for Qlik developers with an intermediate web developer skillset, which want to increase their knowledge in extension development and speed-up their own projects.

Advanced Scripting

Modelling Data With A Deep Insight Into Qlik’s QIX Engine

For years now Qlik is a leader in the Business Intelligence world. One reason for this success story is the associative model with its catchy green-white-grey colour scheme. Through filtering the user is guided down an analytical path inside the data. But how does it work and how can we optimize the analysis experience as a Qlik developer?

This dive is designed to teach the fundamental understanding of a performance optimized data preparation within the Qlik universe. In several simple exercises the behaviour of the QIX-engine will be depicted. Easy to understand exercises leads to a clearer comprehension of what was taught. We will apply our knowledge through a challenging real world example. Therefore, we will load petrol station information with more than 100 million records. Using a wide range of functions, we will solve concrete problems with best practise examples. Additional semantic excursions of the RAM consumption will complete your knowledge as a Qlik developer.

This dive is intended for Qlik developers who wants to push their Qlik knowledge to the next level.

Advanced Security Course

Develop And Manage Your Own Customized Security Concept

Qlik’s capabilities as a self-service analytics platform are well known. In times of digitization, data security and data management is a valuable good. Behind the scenes, the administration of all Qlik resources can be managed by the Qlik Management Console, the QMC. Administrators use roles to allow access of users to any resources like streams, apps and sheets etc. Fundamentally, these roles are based on security rules. The opportunity to disable standard rules, adapt them or even create new security rules enables the development of a customized security concept, which fits everyone’s appropriate needs.

This dive focuses on the technical and conceptional understanding of the development of a security concept in a Qlik Sense environment. For this purpose, Qlik’s native ETL-tools in combination with the User Directory Connector (UDC) are used. Concrete use cases will be shown to develop security rules with best practice examples. In a step by step approach we will establish different user roles. Finally, we will have created an entire security concept.

Furthermore, we will master an automated license allocation, the basic principles of security rules and how to audit them. The fundamental understanding of operators, functions, Custom Properties as well as the different security levels in the HUB and in the QMC will complete your knowledge as a Qlik Sense administrator.

In summary, this dive has been designed for Qlik administrators who want to learn how to manage resources and how to create security concepts in the Qlik Sense environment

Extension Developing for Beginners

Qlik Sense Extension Development for Beginners

Qlik Sense is a fantastic platform for self-service dashboarding. Through its drag and drop interface, users can quickly assemble visualizations, enabling them to explore their data rapidly as they ask and answer question after question. With Qlik Sense's Extension APIs, we now have the power to integrate custom functionality and visualization directly into the Qlik Sense experience. This customization puts more power directly in the hands of users, allowing them to go above and beyond traditional analytics and use-cases while leveraging the ease of use of Qlik Sense's self-service model.

In this deep dive, we'll explore how to get started building extensions. We'll first introduce fundamental concepts of web development such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These are the building blocks that we will use to build our extensions. Then, we will review Qlik Sense's Extension API and walk through the different use-cases it enables. Finally, we'll put all of the pieces together through a series of exercises where we will build extensions that demonstrate the different capabilities of the API. These exercises will cover topics such as rendering a custom visualization, making selections and other actions from your extension, and setting up properties panels that make your extensions easily configurable by users. Along the way, we'll document best practices so that the extensions you build will be maintainable and supported long term.

The Qlik Horse Race at Lingfield Park Resort
Racing Hospitality

After painting the town red at the Qlik jam session at the fireside of Resort Schwielowsee near Berlin last November, our Qlik Luminaries and especially Ralf have been encouraged to keep a stiff upper lip when bringing Sense Deep Dive to Jolly old England.

After a long and intense training day, all Sense Deep Dive participants of are invited to join us for a typical English horse race! Even if our esteemed Ladies and Gentlemen have already answered the question, whether to Qlik or not to Qlik, it is important to bet on the right horse:

  • “QlikView”: the old champion for several years now has a grey forelock. But hey, oldies are goldies: if your stirrup has torn right before the race, you can fix it on your own. Assuming you know, where the correct checkbox is…
  • “Qlik Sense”: is young, easy to handle, responsive and already a secure alternative. However, before entering the race, make sure you have certified horseshoe and a Vizlib saddle extensions installed and a whip widget of course…
  • “Qlik Nprinting”: You’ll have to assume full risk! After all, if something goes wrong, you can always send in the sales team with a BIG year-end discount and silently vanish through the back door…
  • What if the above horses are boring and not for you?? Even though this might be their first public appearance, you can certainly put your last penny on the newcomers of the 2018 season “Big Data Indexing” and “Augmented Intelligence”

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A horse, a horse, a kingdom for a horse!
