Introduction

Communicating with the Tangent Information Modeler (TIM) in Qlik Sense

Using TIM from within Qlik Sense is possible, because of a Server-Side Extension (SSE) that has been developed for this purpose. This SSE gives Qlik Sense users the freedom to benefit from TIM capabilities without having to leave the familiar environment offered by Qlik Sense. The SSE provides various functions which can be used directly in assets in Qlik Sense, therefore integrating seamlessly with Qlik Sense's native way of working. This SSE is not yet available, the planned release is in Q1 2020.

The first version of the TIM SSE for Qlik Sense will support TIM's unique technology called RTInstantML, allowing users to get direct forecasts based on the data in their hypercube. This version will also help users gain deeper insights into their data, the models used by RTInstantML and the resulting forecasts, by providing functionality to look into the features used in the calculation of the forecast. For more information, please read through the section on Transparent Models.
