Gartner Magic Quadrant 2021 named SaaS company Qlik a Challenger for Data Integration Tools. This designation marks the sixth consecutive year that Qlik has been recognised in the quadrant.
Commenting on the development, Qlik Chief Product Officer James Fisher said Qlik’s data integration platform is helping leading organisations create, automate and manage their analytics data pipelines as part of their journey to Active Intelligence.
“Our unique, agnostic platform is helping enterprises access, transform and deliver the real-time data essential to data-driven decision making, and is a key element in helping customers drive their modern analytics, cloud migration, data lake management, and data integration strategies,” said James Fisher.
Qlik’s data integration platform, when combined with the company’s analytics platform, delivers the industry’s only end-to-end approach to Active Intelligence, where technology and processes trigger immediate action from real-time, up-to-date and trusted data to accelerate business value across the entire data and analytics supply chain.
Qlik partners with global cloud and platform providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, as well as organizations like Snowflake, Databricks and Confluent in delivering data warehouse automation, data lake automation, streaming integration and SAP migration, with continued expansion with global systems integrators like Accenture, Cognizant and Tata Consulting Services.
Qlik’s vision is a data-literate world, where everyone can use data and analytics to improve decision-making and solve their most challenging problems. A private SaaS company, Qlik provides an end-to-end, real-time data integration and analytics cloud platform to close the gaps between data, insights and action.
By transforming data into Active Intelligence, businesses can drive better decisions, improve revenue and profitability, and optimize customer relationships. Qlik does business in more than 100 countries and serves over 50,000 customers around the world.
As part of Qlik’s vision of active intelligence with deeper visibility into the lifecycle of data, increasing confidence and use of data for informed actions, the company announced the acquisition of NodeGraph so that it can enhance end-to-end analytics data pipelines
According to Arvian Research the acquisition of NodeGraph, a customisable metadata management solution, is expected to drive “explainable BI,” a higher level of visibility and trust in data.
“Acquiring NodeGraph advances Qlik’s vision of Active Intelligence, where technology and processes trigger immediate action from real-time, up-to-date and trusted data to accelerate business value across the entire data and analytics supply chain,” states Arvian Research.
