    Comments about oreilly QlikView Essentials:

    If you're a novice BI user and want to learn the basics of data modeling and dashboard design in QlikView, this book is a good option. It is based on a business case that takes you from the identification of the data sources and takes you all the way to the deployment of the application, so you will learn a bit about loading data, creating relationships between the tables, avoiding loops and synthetic keys and creating all sorts of charts and tables. You're probably familiar with the Adventure Works database, so you'll have no problem in understanding the fields and tables that you'll encounter in the 8 chapters that compose this title.

    Besides the traditional "app building" tutorial, QlikView Essentials also take some pages to talk about security and application deployment, so even if you're not a seasoned system administrator, you'll get a good picture about how to release your analyses.

    Although not as extensive and detailed-oriented as QlikView 11 for Developers, this title is a good first approach for anyone who wants to know more about how to build and present dashboards to the business users.
