The provider of Tableau focuses on building Customer Experience and developing solutions that facilitate data analysis and visualization. The main changes introduced in 2020 included richer data modeling capabilities and greater capabilities of use of the original VizQL engine.

In the case of Qlik Sense, Gartner emphasizes the flexibility of choice – the tool is available in both SaaS, on-premise and cloud versions (multicloud and platforms of most providers). Qlik bets on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and self-service solutions, and the key tool’s functionalities take advantage of Qlik Cognitive Engine which has been used and developed for 25 years.
