Qlik has expanded its support of developers through the growth of its developer community and the debut of a new developer-focused platform.
Developers are creating new and innovative answers to the most advanced analytics challenges, tackling gigabyte-size data sets and navigating through various big data and IoT hurdles.
Now, they are looking to analytics vendors to provide easy to use and scalable approaches that help move projects forward quickly.
With a growing developer community through Qlik Branch and the Advanced Analytics Toolbox, Qlik is working to meet developers where they live - in environments like R and in the cloud.
Currently in beta, Qlik Core is a new platform for building data-driven applications leveraging Qlik's Associative Engine.
This platform will give developers the ability to use embedded and custom analytics to drive new business models, moving business intelligence from end-user driven to every possible interaction with data.
It will also include Qlik's open source library components such as halyard.js, mira.js, enigma.js, enigma-go, picasso.js and after-works.js.
Qlik Core builds on developer assets already in market like the Advanced Analytics Toolbox.
The Qlik developer community not only works on shared corporate projects - they join forces to drive world-impacting hackathons like the one that took place at Qonnections, which focused on helping its corporate responsibility partner C40 Cities address climate change with data from the City of Boston (C40 Steering Committee member) and their Greenovate Boston movement.
“Developers are a core part of the ecosystem that drives innovation in analytics,” says Qlik strategic marketing senior vice president James Fisher.
“With Qlik Core and our growing set of developer toolkits, Qlik is meeting developers where they live, at scale, to bring any data-driven application idea to life.
