The cloud hub

The cloud hub is your starting point. Interact with apps, find and explore data, and create collections of apps.

Depending on your permissions, you can also create and share apps, upload apps, add and load a data file, or create a data connection.

Insight Advisor

Insight Advisor helps you explore data and create analyses.

Insight Advisor uses the Qlik cognitive engine and a logical model of app data to create visualizations and analyses in an app. As an app creator, Insight Advisor helps you create app content. As a business user using apps for analysis, Insight Advisor helps you create analyses outside of what is available in the app.

For more information, see Creating visualizations with Insight Advisor.
