4 benefits of using HTML mashups in Qlik Sense applications

Qlik Sense has been evolving with each new release, and in recent years it has brought an increasingly better experience to users who make use of “self service” analytics.

However, for less experienced users who prefer to browse ready-made dashboards and analyses, the tool’s visual limitations often directly impact the experience.

One of the most efficient ways to solve this problem is through the use of web mashups.

By using HTML design mashups within Qlik Sense’s “DEV-HUB”, the same dashboards “come to life” and introduce important features that profoundly impact the user experience.

What is a mashup in Qlik Sense?

Before understanding what its advantages are, it is important that you understand what a mashup for Qlik Sense actually is.

Now that you’ve briefly understood what a mashup for Qlik Sense is, let’s get to its advantages.

The main advantages of using mashups

Layout customization

Colors, typography, branding… using mashups, we have complete freedom to create web elements based on the branding of each company.

Mobile first

With mashups, you can customize the interface to simulate a native iOS or Android app, accelerating Qlik Sense adoption.

Multiple native panels in the same mashup

Having directors and managers access different applications to consolidate business information is not very practical.

Using mashups, we can unite content from multiple Qlik Sense apps into a single interface.

Templates for the entire organization

In order to have a single design pattern, companies can use mashup templates.

There are still a plethora of possibilities when using Qlik’s APIs and building mashups – not just visual, but also functional.
