Qlik announced updates to its business intelligence and data analytics platform designed to provide users with more value from their SAP data, according to a press release. New capabilities are headlined by a unified SAP connector that expands Qlik’s ability to leverage SAP data for analysis in any SaaS or client-managed environment. Qlik is also unveiling the first in a series of SAP focused data and analytics solution accelerators. The release comes on the heels of Qlik’s September 2020 update to its augmented analytics Insight Advisor.
Qlik offers a broad spectrum of BI and analytics tools, which is headlined by the company’s flagship offering, Qlik Sense. The solution enables organizations to combine all their data sources into a single view. The Qlik Analytics Platform allows users to develop, extend and embed visual analytics in existing applications and portals. Embedded functionality is done within a common governance and security framework.
The SAP Order to Cash analytics solution accelerator will provide IT and data teams a blueprint for modern data architectures while quickening SAP data modernization projects. The tool will utilize multiple components of Qlik’s data integration and analytics platform, as well as pre-built data accelerators and analytics applications. The new unified SAP connector will expand customers’ ability to extract SAP data more easily for analysis into Qlik Sense Enterprise through both an SAP BEx/InfoProvider joint connectivity and SAP SQL connector.
In a media statement on the news, Qlik Chief Product Officer James Fisher said “Customers are finding great success leveraging the agility of Qlik to create agnostic, real-time data pipelines on SAP data, in any cloud or analytics platform, that increases SAP data’s value for decision making throughout an organization. Our new connector and accelerator solutions for SAP data expand our industry leading capabilities in helping any enterprise more easily access, transform and deliver all their SAP data for analysis, insights and taking action.”
