Cluster/Sense Templates is launching NewHub today, a solution that aims to transform the Qlik Sense user experience. The product is a portal that displays native applications (QVF) and Qlik Sense mashups in a single interface, in a friendly and customized way.
Technically speaking, NewHub is a mashup installed on Qlik Sense Server, but unlike anything the market offers. The idea of developing the product was born from the needs of customers in customizing and centralizing access to Qlik panels.
The main advantages of NewHub are:
Add native applications and mashups in the same interface
The standard Qlik Sense HUB only displays native applications, without listing mashups. NewHub solves this problem by embedding mashups and applications within the same navigation context. Each App or Mashup retains its unique URL.
Customize the visual identity by changing the color palette and logo
The color adjustment and logo change is done by Cluster during the installation phase of NewHub. The product does not lose these customizations if Qlik Sense Server is updated.
Plug and Play
NewHub is a mashup with dynamically implemented features. All content control is done through the Qlik Management Console (QMC), leveraging existing and installed infrastructure.
Customizable Home and Menu
The NewHub Home screen provides a customizable list of applications, controlled via QMC. Simply enter tags, which will be used as categories by grouping the applications and mashups in the Main Menu. Applications with the “home” tag are automatically listed on Home.
All content displayed on NewHub comes from QMC or published QVFs and Mashups, so unlike other mashups, no HMTL maintenance, whether on Dev-Huv or any IDE, is required.
In the right bar you can follow the latest updates of your Apps and Mashups in the NewHub Activity Feed.
Photos users automatically
NewHub uses the QMC image library, allowing users to view their photos automatically, as well as their name and job title.
Stylization of native Apps
NewHub allows native QVFs to be stylized by changing background color, color of the native Qlik Sense bar, and more.
NewHub is marketed in SaaS format, where customers pay per user per month.
One of the main advantages of this format is that, in addition to paying only for the actual use of the tool, Cluster offers compatibility support and guarantee for new Qlik Sense releases.
