As a developer, you have loads of data. We all do. Whether you’re trying to analyze it, visualize it, search it or filter it, you need something to perform the heavy lifting in terms of data manipulation, reactive data flow and data state management. And bonus if it creates a virtual layer over your databases and replaces the need for writing REST APIs while adding metadata for visualization components. The holy grail? Writing code that is useful, readable, neat and doesn’t mutate your data.
How do you get there?
Qlik Core is our subscription development component that brings the power of the Qlik Associative Engine to developers looking to exploit their data in highly-scalable, cloud-ready solutions. With Qlik Core, you can take advantage of Qlik’s powerful associative indexing and analytics engine. This means the ability to quickly and easily BUILD custom data exploration and data decisioning solutions and EMBED them into any stack, IoT device, process, application, web page, portal, Star Wars visualization – you name it. TL;DR — here’s the documentation.
First, let’s talk about the Qlik platform. We’ve been around for 25 years and our specialty is analytics. Our platform has powerful features like responsive and intelligent visualizations, collaboration and storytelling functionality, robust data control and role-based data security.
Underneath those features is our "secret sauce" that we call the Qlik Associative Engine. This is what’s responsible for the magic — the indexing and association of data as well as the blazingly fast in-memory inference and calculation engine that powers our platform.
As we said, we all have data. And data aggregation, manipulation and query writing can be really time consuming. Then the data changes and you have to do it all again. That’s when our Associative Engine perks come into play. With the Associative Engine, all data points are associated within a virtual data layer over your front-end and back-end systems. These associations exist even across tables, allowing you to change, model and visualize complex relationships between various data sources and tables. With these associations in place, you get:
And this Associative Engine is ready to help you through Qlik Core.
