Insight from Big Data with QlikView and Google BigQuery
With Google’s recent launch of Google BigQuery, developers and business users can quickly and easily gain business insights from massive amounts of data without any hardware or software investments. In partnership with Google, QlikTech has developed a dashboard (http://us.demo.qlikview.com/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=qvdocs/American%20Birth%20Statistics.qvw) that visualises and crunches millions of rows of birth-record data.
The app provides seamless integration with BigQuery using its extension and custom connector capabilities. With QlikView’s custom connector, users can load BigQuery data into memory and explore information freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions. The QlikView extension object provides a direct connection from QlikView dashboards to Google BigQuery, which enables users to ask ad-hoc questions on large volumes of data and get answers in seconds, without creating a single line of SQL code.
