“Qlik is continuing to invest in helping customers take on their most
complex challenges with data, in order to drive the transformation
necessary to compete in the digital world. Our company is growing and
our strong financial performance enables us to further invest in more
end-to-end data and analytical solutions for our customers,” said Mike
Capone, Qlik CEO. “Most recently we completed the acquisition of the
CrunchBot AI-powered technology to further advance our cognitive and
conversational analytics capabilities.”
Qlik’s unique associative technology changed the face of analytics and
BI, and is an essential element in Qlik’s mission to supply enterprise
customers with the most robust end-to-end data management and analytics
platform and solutions. Through the Associative Engine, Qlik
enables customers to analyze information from any data source – in the
cloud, on-premise, in a hybrid, multi-cloud environment – without
restriction or limitations.
Qlik’s approach is more important than ever, given the key trends that
customers are looking to address through analytics: leveraging data in
the cloud, managing all data (not just big data), benefiting from
a single view into all their data, and leveraging augmented intelligence
to the edges of the organization. This year Qlik continued to leverage
the open nature of its platform to deliver innovation and enhancements
to its multi-cloud offerings, augmented intelligence and machine
learning within Qlik
Sense® through Insight Advisor and the recent acquisition of
CrunchBot, and expanded data management capabilities through the Qlik
Associative Big Data Index and Qlik
Qlik also expanded the ability of customers to benefit from two key
resources – previously untapped IoT data at the organizational edge
through embedded analytics and Qlik Core, and increased overall use of
data for faster and more impactful business decision making through
improved data literacy.
Core helps developers build new classes of data-driven
applications with the Qlik Associative Engine for the most cutting
edge IoT and big data challenges. Through a developer-focused model
purpose-built for the cloud, developers leverage Linux and a
containerized approach for the engine, along with supporting open APIs
and open source libraries for integration into non-dashboard projects.
Developers can try Qlik Core for free via Qlik’s developer
community, GitHub and Docker.
As organizations make more data available, it’s vital that users are
equipped to read, analyze and utilize data for decisions, communicate
with data throughout the organization, and use that data knowledge for
better outcomes. Qlik executed multiple programs across data literacy
to further the performance of all users, with nearly 20 data literacy
courses within Qlik’s
Continuous Classroom and the launch of the world’s first global Data
Literacy community. Furthermore, Qlik commissioned the first-ever Data
Literacy Index – a survey that showed the true business value of
data literacy to organizational bottom line performance.
