Associative Data Engine
Qlik’s Patented Associative engine indexes every possible relationship in your data which helps you gain immediate insights and explore your data in any direction guided by your intuition. Unlike query-based tools, it does not contain pre-aggregated data and predefined queries. That allows you to ask new questions and create analytics without having to build new queries or wait for the experts. It allows you to discover dynamic associations and explore data relationships in multiple directions and see how your data is interrelated. This allows you to quickly view stories within your data without having to go through a long ‘wait’ cycle of re-building complex queries with the help of a data expert.

With its in-memory processing, its engine compresses data down to 10% of its original size. It gives much faster analytics with the columnar data store. The QIX engine allows fast analysis by computing aggregations and dimensions on the fly.
With the governed data framework, you can manage and secure your data assets by your IT department before users may access it. By centralizing and managing the data deployment and use, you can ensure data integrity and security and deliver users with trusted, credible data.
