What is QlikView?

QlikView is a business intelligence platform.  It allows for quick development and deployment of business intelligence and analytics applications, and for easy consumption of those applications through the web by those authorized.

QlikView has a unique associative data model feature that allows for all of the data to be used for analysis without pre-defined drill-down or drill-through relationships.

QlikView also has an included-excluded type display feature (sometimes referred to with the phrase … the power of green-white-gray) that allows users to not only see what data is included in the selected set, but also see what data is not included, thereby enabling data discovery.

QlikView holds data for its applications in memory, which allows it to deliver results quickly without the need for pre-calculated / pre-aggregated cubes.

These features help to differentiate QlikView from other BI platforms, and are some of the reasons for its growth and its leadership position in the BI space.
