Qlik Sense Gets Augmented Intelligence Boost

Qlik this month announced AI-driven enhancements that it says allow its Qlik Sense data analytics platform to deliver the most robust augmented intelligence capabilities for cloud analytics in the industry.

Many of these improvements are centered on Insight Advisor, the intelligent AI assistant in Qlik Sense. Specifically, the September 2020 release of Qlik Sense deepens Qlik’s augmented analytics with AI-driven assistance with a new conversational analytics experience, and new abilities in business logic, advanced analytics calculation, and search-based visual analysis on mobile devices.

A brand-new, conversational analytics experience has been added in the form of Insight Advisor Chat. The new, fully conversational analytics experience native to Qlik Sense SaaS is available in multiple languages, using natural language processing and natural language generation to understand intent and generate narrative and visual responses. For deeper exploration, it now looks across Qlik Sense apps for answers and allows direct transition to search-based visual analysis.

“Analytics users want to do more with their data, but often struggle with where to look or what next steps to take. Insight Advisor gives these users a complete and powerful AI assistant, built directly into Qlik Sense, to help guide them along every step of their data exploration and analysis journey,” said James Fisher, Chief Product Officer at Qlik.

“Qlik Sense users are only a click or question away from the assistance needed to derive more insights and value from data. And, with every interaction, Insight Advisor learns alongside them, creating a virtuous cycle where they become smarter together, increasing users’ data literacy and data usage.”

To make it easier to leverage AI-driven cloud analytics, Qlik also improved the migration path of data to Qlik Sense SaaS with the launch of Qlik DataTransfer. This easy-to-use utility is built directly into Qlik Sense, that helps organizations easily and securely migrate their on-premise and local data to the cloud. Qlik DataTransfer leverages the full ability of Qlik Sense to combine and transform data.
