Essbase connector

The Qlik Essbase Connector enables Qlik Sense and QlikView to efficiently load data into an app from an Essbase dataset. The Essbase Connector uses an XML for Analysis (XMLA) service to retrieve data from Essbase cubes. An XMLA service is a SOAP service that uses the XMLA format for communication.
