The book, Mastering QlikView Data Visualization, happens to be my lost adventures as a QlikView consultant. I haven’t promoted it much because after two years of writing, I was too anxious to run off to learn other skills. A year and a half after its publication, QlikView is still popular and customers continue to look for ways to squeeze everything they can out of QlikView like a tube of toothpaste. If you need help in doing so, I recommend that you read my book.
You’re Not Alone
A current Google trends analysis of Qlik-related search terms shows that “qlikview” keyword is still more popular than the tool-neutral “qlik” or the keyword for “qliksense” or “qlik sense.” Its relative popularity is in decline from its peak in June 2015 and will likely be surpassed by “qlik” in 2018 and by “qlik sense” in 2019/2020. However, these trends, along with my own personal experience working with companies that have invested much capital into QlikView, tell me that it will continue to be an important tool for many companies over the next several years.
A Bucket Full of Ideas
Mastering QlikView Data Visualization is my bucket full of ideas for these companies that have QlikView and are looking for new ways to analyze and visualize their data. Here are some highlights from the book.
