What is Qlik Core?

Qlik Core is a development platform built on top of the Qlik Associative Engine. With Qlik Core, you can take advantage of the powerful associative indexing engine from Qlik to build your custom data exploration and data vizualization solutions.

The Qlik Associative Engine differentiates from other vendors by dynamically calculating and providing associations based on data selections, without needing to rely on query-based analyses which are restricted to linear exploration within a partial view of the data.

Open Source

We believe in Open Source! Much in Qlik Core is developed as Open Source. We encourage you to explore the different git repositories, star your favorite repositories, file issues, and send pull requests.

We are on GitHub at Qlik - Open Source Software.


Qlik Core is designed to take advantage of the power of container-based solutions and microservice architectures, such as Docker.

The Qlik Associative Engine on Linux, provided as a Docker image, forms the foundation of this.

Developers building their solutions on Qlik Core are provided with a large range of powerful technologies, for example Kubernetes, which enables container orchestration and elastic scaling of multiple Qlik Associative Engine instances in distributed environments.

Live Demo

To see an example of what can be built using Qlik Core, a live demo is available at

The demo is built on the requirements from a fictive company, which provides an interactive application to assist doctors with drug prescriptions.

The source code for the demo, including more detailed documentation, is available as open source on GitHub in the qlik-oss/core-assisted-prescription repository.
