Qlik Higher Education User Day 2022
After a 3-year pandemic break, we were excited to have the Qlik Higher Education User Conference back in our diary. It was the 20th iteration of this Qlik higher education event, that has been running since 2009.
The purpose of our Qlik Higher Education User Conference is to create a fun, collaborative environment where people can share information and expertise. Qlik users in the higher education sector demonstrate applications that are in use at their institutions. They also share some of the challenges they came across when developing their Qlik applications and how they solved them. All in all, the event is about open collaboration and helping each other get the most out of Qlik.
This year’s user conference took place at London’s iconic County Hall venue, set between the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. Over 50 delegates joined us from universities all over the UK, many of whom also attended the pre-event dinner on the night before. This dinner provided an informal setting to meet each other and have conversations with like-minded people from the same sector.
On the day of the conference, a common theme of the university presentations was the implementation of Qlik Sense. We had excellent presentations from Oxford Brookes University, Abertay University and the University of Brighton, showing how they had rolled out Qlik Sense to their user base. Whether that meant transitioning from QlikView to Qlik Sense, or implementing Qlik Sense alongside QlikView.
From our end, we also showed off the newest functionalities within the Qlik platform. This included tips and tricks on how universities can get the most of their investment in Qlik. Our presentations about the many new advancements in the Qlik platform included the product roadmap, Qlik Data Integration and Qlik AutoML. The Qlik platform is moving so fast that it was good for users to see the new features on offer.
The next Qlik Higher Education User Conference will take place in 2023, but we’re still deciding on the venue… any ideas?
