2022 zoomed by, didn’t it? And this year is just beginning, we would like to rewind and take a look back.
We have launched our cloud-ready Mail & Deploy SaaS solution, developed plenty of new features for you, finally saw the return of in-person events, helped you with your easy and complex support cases, and partnered with even more great Qlik partners around the world.
If you missed our monthly news or feature releases or haven’t had a chance to follow our updated roadmap, now is your chance for a recap of what happened in 2022.
New to Mail & Deploy in 2022
Mail & Deploy goes Cloud
There is nothing more exciting than welcoming a new product. This year, Mail & Deploy went to the Cloud and we launched our new fully cloud-ready Mail & Deploy SaaS solution.
Mail & Deploy SaaS transfers the principles and existing benefits of Mail & Deploy Version 3 to the cloud.
Our new fully cloud-ready SaaS solution enables easy reporting out of Qlik® in the cloud. Mail & Deploy SaaS offers a seamless experience for users to simply log in and start using Mail & Deploy capabilities, without the need to download or install any software. Qlik® users have the full range of functions of the classic on-premise solution, but Mail & Deploy takes over the maintenance work in terms of hosting and updates.
With this offering, we followed Qlik® ‘s cloud strategy and can offer Qlik® users who are already using Qlik®’s cloud-based model or who are considering the transition to the cloud an attractive reporting solution.
If you are booking a product tour via https://www.mail-and-deploy.com/request-your-product-demo/ you can see for yourself which benefits our SaaS solution can bring to your business.
During the past year, we have made Mail & Deploy even better! Our team worked hard and developed multiple new features for Mail & Deploy. We really think there is something new and beneficial for everyone.
While we are excited to bring you even more innovation in the new year, it is worth reflecting on all of the new capabilities that have been unlocked over the last 12 months.
