Building a model in an on-premises environment using the Advanced Analytics connection
In Chapter 5, we prepared an environment for R and Python using the Advanced Analytics connection with Qlik. In this chapter, we are going to utilize this same environment. This exercise will use R specifically.
In general, there are two ways to utilize the Advanced Analytics connection with Qlik applications. These are the following:
- Live connection: A live connection interacts with the third-party machine learning environment from the user interface while the user interacts with the application. A live connection enables what-if scenarios, simulations, and similar use cases. It is best for light models that do not require extensive training. The idea behind live connections is explained in the following diagram:
