Migrating to Qlik Cloud

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


The Qlik Cloud migration process lets your organization adopt Qlik Cloud at your own pace.

When migrating from QlikView or Qlik Sense Client-Managed, your assets are reusable, and you can continue to build on existing investments without starting 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 Cloud.
