4 Key Differences of QlikView Compared to Other Reporting Tools

#The major differences in QlikView:
One of the QlikView’s primary differentiators is the associative user experience it delivers. QlikView is the leading Business Discovery platform. It enables users to explore data, make discoveries, and uncover insights that enable them to solve business problems in new ways. Business users conduct searches and interact with dynamic dashboards and analytics from any device. Users can gain unexpected business insights because QlikView:

Works the way the mind works. With QlikView, users can navigate and interact with data any way they want to — they are not limited to just following predefined drill paths or using preconfigured dashboards. Users ask and answer questions on their own and in groups and teams, forging new paths to insight and decision. With QlikView, discovery is flexible. Business users can see hidden trends and make discoveries like with no other BI platform on the market.

Delivers direct — and indirect — search. With Google-like search, users type relevant words or phrases, in any order, and get instant, associative results. With a global search bar, users can search across the entire data set in an application. With search boxes affiliated with individual list boxes, users can confine the search to just that list box. They can both conduct direct and indirect searches. For example, if a user wanted to identify a sales rep but can’t remember the sales rep’s name — just details about the rep, such as that he sells fish to customers in the Nordic region — the user can search on the sales rep list box for “Nordic” and “fish” to get the names of sales reps who meet those criteria.


Next Steps:


Delivers answers as fast as users can think up questions. A user can ask a question in QlikView in many different ways, such as lassoing data in charts and graphs and maps, clicking on items in list boxes, manipulating sliders, and selecting dates in calendars. Instantly, all the data in the entire application filters itself instantly around the user’s selections. The user can quickly and easily see relationships and find meaning in the data, for a quick path to insight. The user can continue to click on field values in the application, further filtering the data based on questions that come to mind.

Illuminates the power of gray. With QlikView, users can literally see relationships in the data. They can see not just which data is associated with the user’s selections — they can just as easily see which data is not associated (see Figure 1). How? The user’s selections are highlighted in green. Field values related to the user’s selection are highlighted in white. Unrelated data is highlighted in gray. For example, when a user clicks on a product category (say, bagels) and a region (e.g., Japan), QlikView instantly shows everything in the entire data set that is associated with these selections — as well as the data that is not associated. The result? New insights and unexpected discoveries. For

example, the user might see that no bagels were sold in Japan in January or June, and begin an investigation into why.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.


What does Hadoop do...

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
