Why Qlik – Embedded analytics, custom applications and extensions

Qlik® has a simple philosophy: Visual analytics should allow you to discover every possible connection within your data. And our vision of analytics for everyone goes beyond just self-service to deliver technology, resources, and support for developers building visual analytic solutions for consumers.  We don’t limit the possibilities for what the greater visualization and app-building community can imagine.

Extending Qlik Sense with custom visualisations

Qlik Sense visualisation extensions enable new ways of visualising data and enhance user input and interaction. The visualisation extensions are regular Qlik Sense objects that you have added your own rendering code to. They can be charts of different types, or other items like tables or filter panes. In QlikView®, these types of extensions are referred to as Object Extensions.  Visualisation extensions can be integrated with other systems and visual libraries, new selection objects and productivity components can be added, and it can all be done using open standards such as HTML5, JavaScript® and CSS. 

Embedding Qlik Sense in web applications

Embedded analytics seamlessly integrate analytic capabilities and content into business applications, products, websites or portals. It lets users quickly access relevant data and insights in their daily workflows without slowing down and switching to use a separate analytics application. This makes it easier for organisations to empower employees, customers, suppliers and partners with the information they need right where they work to answer questions, make better decisions and take action faster.

Qlik Sense apps, sheets and visualizations can be embedded in (for example):

  • Portals
  • Web applications
  • Intranet and extranet sites

There are two ways of embedding the Qlik Sense content:

  • iFrame integration using the Single Integration API
  • Div integration using the Capability APIs

Expanding Qlik Sense

You can integrate Qlik Sense in your own software using the Qlik Sense APIs and SDKs. It can, for example, be integrated as a:

  • Windows application
  • Web-based application
