Alteryx at the Qlik Conference #Qlik14 – Data Blending, Advanced Analytics and Data Discovery

Today is the last day of the Qlik Customer Conference. The Alteryx team here in Orlando met a lot of great companies that are using Qlik for data discovery, and are now interested in Alteryx for more data blending and more advanced analytics.

We had come great conversations and handed out the Alteryx Visual Analytics Kit for QlikView® and Qlik® Sense. Alteryx also gave away iPads to a number of people at the show.

BIPB, Alteryx and the Visual Analytics Kit for Qlik

After Alteryx announced a partnership with Qlik, our consultants at BIPB set out to prove integration between Alteryx and QlikView.

This meant building nine marketable QV dashboards utilizing the same data as the Tableau kit. It was a fun challenge to meet aesthetic expectations set by the Tableau kit, despite the Tableau product generally yielding prettier dashboards than their competitors. We ended up plugging the Tableau color palette into Qlik which worked quite nicely!
