Qlik and FME

Enrich Your Data with Location Information

Organizations are increasingly interested in bringing geospatial (location) data into business intelligence tools to gain valuable insights and make more informed, location-based decisions. For example, combining census data with geometries of neighbourhoods. This can aid in answering questions related to spatial patterns such as risk assessment for natural disasters or epidemics, or identifying the best suited site for a medical clinic or retail store.

This is why municipalities such as the City of Lier have used FME to extract raw data from a variety of sources, and put this information into QVX files for analysis.

Gain Intelligence from All of Your Data

Data silos are in place in every business, usually due to the tradition of organizing data by department. With FME, you can integrate all of this data, including databases, static files, data feeds, and geospatial data, to get the complete picture in Qlik. Equip decision makers with all of the information they need, right at their fingertips.

Creating map visualizations with your newly combined data is a great way to display large, complex information in a simplistic way. That’s why FME supports Qlik GeoAnalytics, the QVX exchange format, and all of the databases Qlik customers may choose to store their datasets.

Qlik Dashboard with FME

Save Time with Automation

Gone are the days of customized, one-off data integrations. With FME, you set up reusable integration workflows in a GUI. Because your workflows are visual, data scientists, C level executives, and everyone else at your organization can see and understand how data is moving.

Use FME to automate your workflows to run on a schedule or in response to events. You can load a centralized database that feeds the Qlik platform; provide a data download service for Qlik-friendly file formats; or stream data directly to Qlik via a REST or Web File connection. Most importantly, data is kept up-to-date for your Qlik dashboards.
