What are the differences between the Qlik Sense Hub and a Qlik mashup?

Answer:

The hub is a default website that acts as the starting point for Qlik Sense users. It displays all the applications you currently have access to. It does not require any programming.

 

A mashup allows you to blend Qlik Sense data with other data such as web services, web pages, etc. You can change the look and feel of the page to compliment your company branding. Some programming will be involved as the mash up is made up of HTML, CSS and Javascript documents.
