Business intelligence vendor, QlikTech, will add social capabilities to its QlikView Business Discovery platform, using Chatter Connect from Salesforce.com to up its collaborative credentials. The idea is to allow users to share information within workgroups and teams.
The announcement was made at Dreamforce 2011, in San Francisco.
“QlikView’s Chatter integration enables business users to collaborate around data-driven decisions,” QlikView senior vice-president, Anthony Deighton, said in a statement.
“Building on the Chatter enterprise collaboration platform extends social BI to a new set of users. Now, QlikView users can benefit from Chatter’s social collaboration, and users in Chatter have visibility to insights discovered in QlikView.”
Organisations that use QlikView and Salesforce Chatter can embed Chatter feeds and comments and into QlikView apps and dashboards, while maintaining privacy. The idea is to help build context around data and help the organisation to use business intelligence to make faster and better decisions.
QlikView will also use the Chatter platform to push updates to users.
The integration was designed in partnership with Centerstance.
