Qlik Sense training now in SaaS


As Qlik is scaling up their efforts in the cloud and adding more functionality to the SaaS editions of Qlik Sense, Ometis is following their lead. All of our Qlik Sense training courses are now adapted to be consumed in Qlik Sense SaaS. At the moment we are offering four (soon to be five) different courses in Qlik Sense ranging from a novice level, where no experience with Qlik is required, to an advanced course including scripting and data modelling.

All you need is an Internet connection and preferably two screens. One screen works just fine but since the training content and demonstrations are shared over video, your experience will be greatly improved if you use one screen for the content and instructions, and another screen for your exercises.

The training is designed to give you hands-on experience where the majority of the time is dedicated to exercises. You will be doing the exercises in our Qlik Sense SaaS training environment where all the required apps and files are shared in a common space. As you can store and load data files in the Qlik Sense cloud account, there is no need to access data on a local server.

What’s new compared to before? First of all, you will learn how to navigate and create content in the cloud hub which looks a bit different from the hub in Qlik Sense on Windows. Besides the user interface, one of the main differences is the collaboration possibilities in how you access, store and share data. You can access and store data files either from a personal data folder or from a shared file location, such as SharePoint, OneDrive or Google Drive.

Our training courses in the cloud is a great way to try out the SaaS edition of Qlik Sense, or to continue building on your existing skills. Take a look below for a summary of all the courses. To find out more or schedule a training session, please contact the Ometis team today.
