Augmented analytics

Business logic

A robust business logic layer provides the ability to create business rules and metadata to customize and guide the behavior of Insight Advisor when generating insights and interacting conversationally with users. It includes the ability to logically group fields, classify data, specify default behaviors, define preferred relationships, and more. Natural language processing can also be customized, including defining vocabulary rules and synonyms for more natural interaction.

K-means Clustering - Expanded Functionality

K-means clustering on-board the Qlik Engine was released in September. This function allows data points to be grouped into clusters based on similarity. It’s a highly useful function for customer segmentation, fraud detection, and many other use cases.

In this release, we have improved our KMeans functions with auto-clustering support. When a user sets 0 for the number of clusters, an optimal number of clusters for that dataset is calculated. This enhancement builds on Qlik's advanced clustering capabilities.

Visual analytics and usability improvements

Images in Custom Tooltips

Users can now load custom images in tooltips for more styling options. They can feature an image from the media library or reference one by a URL. This offers further flexibility and enhanced options for app development, as images are a great way to provide additional context when hovering over an object.

Copy sheets between apps

Users can now copy sheets between apps to improve productivity for power users and application developers. This is a highly requested feature from our customer base, as it drives faster insights across the organization.

Copy measures between objects

Another feature to speed app development, users can quickly copy measures between charts. This is a small, but powerful feature enhancement that drives faster insights within an organization.

Other chart improvements

  • The ability to hide disclaimers in charts; a user can now decide whether the disclaimer for additional data points should be visible or not.
  • Increased measure limit in the Waterfall chart, which now supports 50 measures instead of 15.
  • Extended functionality in table mini charts, including others, and null.
