We make decisions large and small based on data—everything from movie times to sales results to stock prices. But decisions are social events and we also take into account the opinions, advice, experiences, and expertise of people we trust. How cool is this: today at the Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference we announced that we have extended the QlikView Business Discovery platform to Salesforce Chatter. Chatter is an enterprise social networking platform that enables users within an enterprise to connect with experts, collaborate with remote colleagues, manage team projects, discuss confidential topics, solve customer issues—and, now, collaborate and share information within and about their QlikView Business Discovery apps. (Click here to watch a short video showing QlikView working with Chatter.) If you happen to be at Dreamforce, stop by the QlikView booth (#408) in the expo for a live demo.
The Chatter enterprise social networking platform helps build out the context around data and create a lasting record of the factors that went into a decision. Companies using QlikView and Salesforce Chatter can now collaborate on data and analytics by embedding Chatter feeds, comments, and more right into QlikView apps and dashboards. They can participate in discussions about the data, sharing insights and collaboratively moving toward decisions. Chatter also pushes important updates to QlikView users so they can quickly respond to questions and participate in conversations.
QlikView for Chatter will be is available to QlikView customers as a free QlikView extension object. As soon as we have an online FAQ available I will update this blog post with a link.
