“The most useful thing was understanding the foundational elements of Qlik and how to make a start in a proper way. This is a very worthwhile course. Qlik is an intuitive tool to use for analysts and you can get up and running very quickly. What Steve and Quick Intelligence do is formulate the training to make sure you get the most out of the systems you have available.”
BI Consultant, delegate in summer 2018
Our Qlik Sense training course takes delegates on a journey from clicking “Create New” on their first Sense app through to having a multi-page application. You won’t need any specific prior knowledge, but an understanding of numbers and data handling is an advantage. There is a strong focus on best-practice, both from a development and a visualisation standpoint, so even if you already use Sense or QlikView this course can help fill gaps in your knowledge and take your skills to the next level.
The course is based around a real world data set (MOT pass rates in Torquay) and we look not only at how to interrogate the data but also what kinds of questions it is possible to ask from a data source. You may find some interesting insights even on data which are not your own!
Every step of the way the course gives insights and advice which can be applied directly to whatever data you have to analyse. The material is delivered by a skilled consultant with many years experience of delivering business solutions for clients, who will be happy to answer any questions you have.
We look at what Qlik Sense is and how it works from a user
perspective. We look at the data we are using and quickly
get to the point of having our first interactive visualisations.
The properties and options around these charts are explored,
allowing you to customise your visualisations. Options for
theming your applications and making them more engaging are
explored. Some techniques for cleaning dirty data and deriving
new values are also looked at.
Further thought is given to best-practices in application design, as we explore Master Items and how visualisations, dimensions and measures can be made available for self-service analysis. Each of the chart types available in Sense is examined, looking at not only how each type can be created, but also when they should (or should not) be used. We also look at tabular presentation of data, in both straight and pivot tables.
