Qlik Core is an analytics development platform built around the Qlik Associative Engine and Qlik-authored open source libraries. With Qlik Core, you can take advantage of the powerful associative engine to build, extend and quickly deploy your custom interactive data-driven solutions, highly scalable and cloud-ready. Combining complex data sources, scaling on-demand during peak and off-peak use and integrating seamlessly within already existing infrastructure to manage security will help developers solve some of the major challenges of building cloud-ready, analytics-driven applications. Supported by a backbone of Linux and Docker, Qlik Core applications can easily be embedded into any stack, IoT device, application, web page etc.

The Qlik Associative Engine differentiates from other vendors by dynamically calculating and providing associations based on data selections, without needing to rely on query-based analyses which are restricted to linear exploration within a partial view of the data.

Open Source

We believe in Open Source! Much in Qlik Core is developed as Open Source. We encourage you to explore the different git repositories, star your favorite repositories, file issues, and send pull requests.

We are on GitHub at Qlik - Open Source Software.


Qlik Core is designed to take advantage of the power of container-based solutions and microservice architectures, such as Docker.

The Qlik Associative Engine on Linux, provided as a Docker image, forms the foundation of this.

Developers building their solutions on Qlik Core are provided with a large range of powerful technologies, for example Kubernetes, which enables container orchestration and elastic scaling of multiple Qlik Associative Engine instances in distributed environments.

Use Cases

Use cases show solutions and examples of what business scenarios that can be implemented with Qlik Core. The use cases show both how data analytics problems can be addressed, and how to use Qlik Core together with different technological platforms.

If you are looking for complete solutions to get inspiration from, or to start building your own solutions with, the use cases together with our tutorials provide a good starting point.

More information can be found in the Use Cases section.
