Qlik Competence Center
Qlik, formerly known as QlikTech, was founded in 1993 in
Sweden and are currently headquartered in Pennsylvania, USA. From the start, the company set out to
deliver Business Intelligence software solutions for small and large
organizations. Their first product was called QuikView, which stood for "Quality,
Understanding, Interaction and Knowledge”.
In the past years, Qlik quickly made a name for itself as
its products where characterized by the power of simplicity and velocity by
which data could be explored. As the software was relatively easy to use, it
can be considered the first vendor of true self-service BI-tools. They branded the solutions to be "Data Discovery", recently renamed Business Discovery, and started to
take the BI industry by storm. Recognition of analysts such as Gartner quickly
followed, and all of the big vendors had to come up with an answer to their revolutionary product QlikView. The product introduced in-memory technology, in combination with an associative way of linking data-elements.
Currently Qlik serves over 33 000 customers spread across 100
countries, and are still growing at exceptional rates.
Qlikview is the main
product, but they have recently released a second product line called Qlik
Sense. They continue to put focus on the self-service aspect of BI, data visualisation tools for the end-users and the
speed of delivering business value to its end-users.
element61 offers specialized services for both these
products, ranging from training, implementation strategy -including making the choice between QlikView and Qlik Sense- to full end-to-end
implementations. Our highly skilled consultants are ready to assist you in your
journey towards true self-service BI. Contact us today !
