For those of you keeping up with newer Business Intelligence (BI) tools – Qlik (maker of QlikView and Qlik Sense) bought Vizubi ( maker of NPrinting) on 2/13/2015.
These two tools work well together, so it was a good decision on the part of Qlik. NPrinting extends the capabilites of QlikView ( they are working on doing the same for Qlik Sense… stay tuned.). After you’ve spent a lot of effort on a QlikView workbook full of reports and insight, NPrinting helps you email, distribute & schedule output in various formats ( html, MS Office ( Word, Excel, PowerPoint) ). This helps the consumers of your actionable business insight, by extending your QlikView ouput to more than just the authors and analysts with QlikView IDs.
This aquisition by Qlik should make the technical integration of the two tools easier over time. We look forward to seeing how Qlik simplifies these steps to distribute your insight with a hope that development efforts in Qlik Sense include an integrated NPrinting widget or menu.
