QlikView’s Core Technology

QlikView is an In-memory BI Pioneer

In-memory is important for performance, but it takes a lot more to deliver a Business Discovery platform. Traditional BI based on queries and cubes may run in memory for faster response time, but they still require IT to manually maintain the data associations users depend on.

Memory Chips

The QlikView Difference

It’s what QlikView does with in-memory technology that really makes a difference.
The QlikView Business Discovery platform:

  • Has an inference engine that maintains the associations in the data automatically
  • Calculates aggregations on the fly, as needed, for a super-fast user experience
  • Compresses data down to 10% of its original size to optimize the power of the processors
  • Accomplishes both within a single, comprehensive product

The Result – Less Maintenance and Faster Deployment

Neither users nor developers have to maintain the associations in the data, so organizations can move rapidly from prototyping to deployment to refinement.

Technology + Ecosystem = Platform
