Moving from QlikView to Qlik Sense SaaS

Qlik Sense is a modern data analytics platform that is built on the same software engine as QlikView but adds significant value to better empower everyone in an organization to make better decisions daily. Qlik Sense allows you to use one common platform for all users – executives, decision-makers, and analysts.

When moving from QlikView to Qlik Sense, assets are reusable, and you can continue to build on existing investments without having to start from scratch. In some cases, you can use the opportunity of having access to a modern platform to look at your existing assets with a fresh set of eyes and decide how you want to adopt them to make the best use of new capabilities and possibilities in Qlik Sense.

A Qlik Sense SaaS subscription can dramatically reduce infrastructure costs, consume QlikView and Qlik Sensevia a single hub, and automate entitlement management and version upgrades.

Qlik provides a simple, cost-effective way to leverage your investment in QlikView to embrace its next-generation BI capabilities by adopting Qlik Sense. The Qlik Analytics Modernization Program (AMP) can help you:

  • Expand your analytics possibilities
  • Adopt Qlik Sense at your own pace
  • Reduce the total cost of ownership of your Qlik solutions

For more information, see The Qlik Analytics Modernization Program.
