Qlik® was recently named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms 2022 Vendor Assessment (Doc# US48061021, July 2022). IDC MarketScape is the IT industry’s premier vendor assessment tool, providing in-depth quantitative and qualitative technology market assessments. In this report, IDC detailed the value of Qlik Analytics and its complete range of capabilities designed to help organizations drive more insights and value from their data, especially in hybrid cloud environments.
The market for business intelligence and analytics (BIA) continues to grow in both overall size and importance as every organization looks to drive more value from their data, especially in the cloud. As the report states, “Business intelligence and analytics software is one of the most visible pieces of the technology stack that enables data-driven or data-informed decision making and greater enterprise intelligence. While data warehouses, data lakes, lake houses, and various data integration and data intelligence software form the foundation of an organization’s data and analytics technology architecture, it is BIA software that data analysts, business analysts, and others in the organization interact with daily.”
Qlik’s one-of-a-kind associative technology brings unmatched power to the core of our industry-leading analytics experience. Qlik goes beyond the limits of query-based analytics and dashboards, with the ability to connect and combine data for analysis from hundreds of on-premises and cloud sources. And with AI-generated analysis and insights, automated creation and data prep, search and natural language, and AutoML and predictive analytics baked directly into the experience, employees from the C-Suite to every level in the organization can better leverage and drive impact through data-driven insights from Qlik.
“Qlik Sense is the analysis tool our analysts and data engineers always dreamed of. Any BI tool offers data integration and standardization and can display select indices on a dashboard, but we need to understand user trends to mine data and plan our next moves. I’m confident that Qlik delivers exactly what we need to achieve that,” said Kazutaka Yorozu, Data Analysis Infrastructure Engineer at SEGA.
