This May, Qlik Qonnections, the premierBI conference, was held in Orlando, Florida. Steve Rimar, CEO & Founder of Analytica Consulting presented: Big Data Analytics with Qlik & Splunk to over 140 conference attendees.
What is Spunk? Splunk is generally used as a machine data/log analytics platform and has a powerful search index that can hold massive amounts of information. This can be web server logs, device logs from millions/billions of users, etc. One thing it lacks is the visualization and interactivity available in the Qlik product suite. Steve’s presentation on the Splunk Connector, covered how to integrate the two technologies to create a world-class solution for analyzing big data on top of log files with Qlik.
The San Diego Qlik User Group meeting was a great success! The event was on May 3 at AleSmith Brewing Company and had over 25 in attendance, including people from AMN Healthcare, Sony, BD, Prometheus Labs, GreatCall, Hologicand and UCSD Health. We had a few brief presentations going over QlikView/QlikSense tips and tricks, use-cases and product roadmap. However, there was plenty of time for networking with cold beers and appetizers. The next Qlik User Group meeting will be in Orange County on Thursday, June 1. Click here to register for this fun and informative event.
