Two significant acquisitions of 2021 were also subject to assessment. Qlik’s portfolio grew significantly after the acquisition of two technology companies: NodeGraph and Big Squid. Qlik also introduced Qlik Forts, which allows customers to use Qlik Sense SaaS wherever their data is stored. Gartner also took into account Qlik Application Automation – a no-code visual interface that helps you easily build automated analytics and data workflows. Analysts also took into account Qlik’s recently announced listing on the stock market.
Qlik’s strengths as stated by Gartner
- Flexibility and Deployment – When it comes to deployment in a variety of environments, Qlik shows a high degree of flexibility. It offers on-premise cloud options – large cloud providers, different private and public clouds or a combination of these approaches. Customers can also take advantage of a wide range of SaaS.
- Ever-expanding portfolio of functionalities – Qlik has significantly expanded the portfolio of solutions thanks to a combination of its own strong innovation potential and strategic purchases. Recent acquisitions of Big Squid and NodeGraph will allow Qlik to bring its customers innovations such as autoM and advanced metadata management
- Customer engagement and data literacy programs – Qlik allows customers to use their programs to increase data literacy. Qlik also offers advanced programs that will allow customers with older QlikView solutions to take their game to the next level with the newer Qlik Sense product generation.
