Arria NLG for Qlik Sense

Use Arria’s extension for Qlik Sense to augment your dashboard with meaningful, automatically-generated narratives to support your decision making beyond visuals alone.

Take a look at the video introduction, and see below to get the extension and its accompanying documentation. We also offer a showcase project so you can see the Arria extension in action.

With Arria’s extension, you get three options for adding narratives to your dashboard:

  • Out-of-the-box insights. In this option, simply click to choose dimensions, measures, and statistics. Click again to generate text from them immediately. In the add-in’s UI, this is called Configure Narrative.
  • Extendable insights. In this option, you can customize the out-of-the-box narratives by revising scripts in NLG Studio.
  • Programmable narratives. This option gives you the most flexibility, and enables you to create your own custom narratives for specific use cases, with the full programmability of NLG Studio. In the add-in UI, this is called Create Custom Narrative.
