Baidu is using Qlik Sense to improve its cloud services platform and provide an enhanced data analytics experience to its customers.

Qlik Sense will be integrated into Baidu Palo to enable self-service visualization analytics on the Palo OLAP engine, giving Chinese enterprises the ability to achieve greater agility in aggregating data from various sources to make data driven business intelligence decisions.

By incorporating Qlik into the Palo OLAP engine, Baidu aims to provide start-ups in China, especially those enterprises on Baidu Cloud, with greater support in driving data analytics among cloud or filed sources.

“We are very excited to implement Qlik Sense into Palo OLAP to provide users in China with innovative self-service visual analytics,” said Yang Liu, General Manager, Baidu Open Cloud.

“Qlik Sense has an open API and powerful features, and is suitable for enterprise level applications. The close cooperation and technical integration of the two companies has led to more powerful and flexible business intelligence solutions, which will greatly enhance the user experience.”

“With the popularity of big data, cloud computing in BI, social networks, and mobile applications in China these past few years, integrating a powerful visual analytics solution into China’s largest search engine company will only lead to greater value for businesses,” said Toni Adams, senior vice president Partners and Alliances, Qlik.

“Businesses of all sizes using Baidu’s Palo OLAP will now have the ability to take their analysis to a deeper level, leading to a better understanding of their business, as well as their customers.”
