With over 25 years in data and advanced analytics, Qlik helps enterprises move faster, work smarter, and lead the way forward with end-to-end solutions for getting value out of data. The company’s vision is a data-literate world in which every organization can use its data to improve decision-making and solve the most challenging business problems. In partnership with Microsoft, Qlik is empowering organizations to achieve more.
Qlik does business in over 100 countries, serving over 50,000 customers. With the acquisition of Attunity in 2019, Qlik expanded its portfolio with innovative data integration technology and expertise to help organizations overcome the complex challenges of quickly transforming data into business value. The Qlik Data Integration platform (formerly Attunity) is the optimal solution for organizations looking to make data available for analytics or modernize their data estate on Microsoft Azure.
By deploying Qlik Data Integration, Azure customers can automate and stream data from a variety of sources into various Azure data services quickly, easily, and securely. Together, Qlik and Microsoft are accelerating data analysis, combining the automated data-delivery capabilities of the Qlik solution with the agility and openness of the Microsoft Azure platform to enable data modernization initiatives.
Qlik Data Integration makes it possible to deliver real-time data at volume to any Azure artificial intelligence and advanced analytics service. A company’s data becomes available on a single platform, where it can be truly useful: easily accessible for exploring, sharing, and making strategic decisions. Qlik and Microsoft technologies empower business decision-makers and everyone in an organization—to make discoveries that lead to measurable outcomes and transformative change.
Better data for faster decisions
More organizations are turning to the cloud as a solution for analytics where they can build modern data platforms, including data warehouses or data lakes, as well as innovative analytic solutions that enable AI using real-time data. The practical benefit of this important development is greater business agility with faster time to decisions based on more and better data.
“The evolution of analytics capabilities and AI services on Azure is creating more demand for our data integration solution and more ways for customers to benefit from their data,” says Itamar Ankorion, Senior Vice President for Technology Alliances at Qlik. “Now we can create solutions faster across more Azure services to meet our customers’ increasing needs.”
Organizations around the world are looking for ways to modernize their operations and accelerate business value through technologies that can access and integrate data from multiple sources. There’s a growing need to manage large volumes of data stored in multiple legacy sources, access it easily, and use it to make smarter decisions. Qlik’s strong alliance with Microsoft offers customers more freedom and flexibility to choose where their data is stored, where the analytics takes place, and how and where users can access it seamlessly, whether on-premises or in the Azure cloud.
The widespread adoption of Azure cloud technology and the migration of data and applications has been transformative for customers. Organizations are finding significant business value in digital transformation with Qlik and Microsoft solutions, including savings on infrastructure costs and reduced management overhead, plus increased resiliency and agility. Azure AI and advanced analytics enable such business outcomes with faster time to both insight and decision-making, plus accelerated business growth and profitability.
The availability of AI and advanced analytics services on Azure is driving customer demand to use these capabilities to improve business outcomes. Azure AI-enabled predictive models, for example, analyze patterns in historical data and detect the learned patterns in new data to improve growth and productivity, transform jobs and businesses, and contribute to meaningful financial benefits.
“Something we’re seeing in today’s analytics environment that’s very different than before and I’m talking about customer expectations and needs is agility,” says Ankorion. “Organizations need to move much faster. The cloud gives them that opportunity, which we complement with our data warehouse automation solutions, enabling enterprises to accelerate time to value and iterate faster to deliver business value.”
Qlik is helping customers integrate data and deliver it faster in a way that’s fit for purpose, often in real-time, to take advantage of the insight, visualization, and prediction across the range of Azure AI and analytics services.
