"Qlik's position in the Leaders quadrant is driven by progress on its roadmap for augmented analytics, improvements in marketing strategy, and ease of use." While Qlik's enterprise governance and Associative Engine for free-form analysis have continued to dominate as a differentiator.
Different at the Core
Early on, Qlik set out to solve the biggest problem with modern BI tools – restricted linear exploration. Qlik’s unique associative technology brings all data together without complex data warehouses, and enables users to freely explore in any direction they want, leaving no data behind, and no path uncovered. The ability to combine all data sources quickly and easily, search and explore without limitation and pivot your line of thinking based on what you see is the core differentiator at the heart of Qlik’s leadership in the industry.
This free form exploration is valuable because insights come from truly understanding the data from all angles. To do so across an organisation, it is critical to elevate the level of data literacy of all users.
Over years of continued innovation and changing the face of BI, Qlik maintains its belief that all people need to drive analysis from any data source – on premise, in the cloud, in a hybrid environment, internal or external – without restriction or limitation.
Qlik continues to expand the market by delivering an extensible, cloud-ready platform that companies of all sizes can consider the centerpiece of their analytics strategy. Qlik Sense® is built on a fully integrated, cloud-ready platform powered by the patented Associative Indexing Engine. Qlik Sense combines enterprise readiness and governance with intuitive visualization and exploration, advanced analytics and self-service data preparation capabilities.
