Reading RSS Feeds with Qlik REST Connector

Qlik Sense can consume data from just about any data source and present it visually. One rich source of data you may not have considered though is the RSS feed for a blog.

Triggering events with Qlik, IFTTT and Webhooks

Something I often say is that a Qlik dashboard is only worthwhile if it causes someone to take an action. But what if that action could be taken automatically? IFTTT (If This Then That) is a platform that allows different services to talk to each other and trigger events. In this post I look at how a Qlik load script can start an action. Specifically, it defines how you can play We Are The Champions on the office stereo when a new customer is won. Obviously. […]

Naturally I turned to Qlik Sense for help. The app I created is available to download and this post describes how to set this up for your own Netgear router. This entire interactive view of your logs can be built using only free components. […]
