Qlik releases new capabilities, underpinned by Snowflake integration

By Catherine Knowles
Fri 17 Jun 2022

Qlik has announced multiple new and enhanced capabilities designed to help customers maximise the value of their investment in Snowflake Data Cloud.

These services expand the ability to both feed Snowflake with near real-time data and more easily access data in real-time and action it for decision making across the enterprise, the company states.

Snowflake head of technology alliances Tarik Tarik Dwiek says, "Customers are looking to augment their investment in Snowflake with services that accelerate the access and availability of near real-time data for modern analytics.

"We are excited about Qlik's latest SaaS platform integrations with Snowflake, which can make it easier for customers to leverage near real-time data through Snowflake to improve decision-making across the organisation with up-to-date insights."

Qlik enhanced its Cloud Analytics Services for Snowflake with two new features that help customers drive more value from near real-time data when deploying Qlik's cloud platform with Snowflake.

Direct Query enables users to automatically generate pushdown SQL to query Snowflake on demand from within Qlik Sense. This combines the ability to optimise Snowflake queries with immediate access to the most recent data, while allowing for the creation of best-in-class visualisations and dashboards in Qlik Sense.

Qlik's FinOps and query optimisation analytic applications expand on Qlik's existing Snowflake usage dashboards and provide CDOs and data leaders with a comprehensive understanding of what is driving Snowflake usage and how to best optimise Snowflake workloads to improve the user experience, the company states.

Qlik also released new and enhanced Qlik Cloud Data Services capabilities for Snowflake, including:

  • Real-time change data capture and movement to Snowflake including major databases, SAP, mainframe and SaaS applications.
  • Data warehouse automation for model-driven code generation, which dramatically reduces the time, cost, and risk to realise the full potential of Snowflake.
  • Reverse ETL to replicate enriched data from the Snowflake platform back to the operational systems of record.

At QlikWorld, Qlik's recent customer and partner event, organisations such as ABB, Best Buy Canada, CSS, Harman, Novartis, SDI and Urban Outfitters showcased how they leverage Qlik solutions with Snowflake to activate data for insights and action.

ABB demonstrated how they combine Qlik Data Integration to feed Snowflake with SAP and other data sources to unlock the hidden value of data at scale and help create deeper insights faster.

Best Buy Canada showed how they partnered with Accenture, Qlik and Snowflake to accelerate the delivery of the initial phase of a multi-phased data ecosystem modernisation journey in the cloud.

CSS outlined how they built a modern cloud data lakehouse with near real-time data ingestion and fully automated creation of analytics structures for rapid business insights by using Qlik Data Integration with Snowflake. SDI showcased ZEUS, their MRO technology platform, which digitises a portion of the supply chain by leveraging Qlik and Snowflake to uniquely summarise activity for any supply chain manager.

Qlik SVP of technology alliances Itamar Ankorion says, “We're seeing continued customer success and growth in demand to leverage Qlik and Snowflake together to advance cloud data analytics strategies.

"These recent new features and enhancements, including Direct Query capabilities and Cloud Data Integration Services, are part of our continued investments to innovate and help customers accelerate time to value and drive more insights and action from their data.”
