With expressor for QlikView, customers can leverage expressor’s:

  • Bi-directional Connectivity – offering users the ability to read, write, and integrate their QlikView data files (QVX) with other business systems including Excel.
  • Semantic Framework – enabling users to define a common definition and vocabulary for all of their data stored as business data objects within the expressor Semantic Framework. Users can easily map these business data objects to QlikView data files and other business systems and reuse them across the enterprise.
