Qlik has extended its strategic partnership with Google Cloud with the release of Qlik Data Integration on Google Cloud Marketplace.

Google Cloud customers can now purchase Qlik Data Integration alongside their investment in Google Cloud to help drive more use and value from all their data, the company states.

The launch is the latest step in the developing relationship between Qlik and Google Cloud. Late last year Qlik launched a joint offering with Google Cloud to enable customers to drive more value from SAP data on Google BigQuery, reinforced by Qlik's SAP on Google Cloud Expertise designation.

Recently, Qlik achieved Premier Level partner status, and was included as a partner in the recent launch of Google Cloud Cortex Framework.

According to the company, these events build on Qlik's integration with Google Cloud, giving customers increased confidence to successfully deploy Qlik Data Integration alongside Google Cloud to accelerate their cloud data strategies.

Qlik Data Integration automates real-time data streaming, refinement, cataloging and publishing between multiple source systems and Google Cloud.

Qlik drives agility in the analytics process through automated data pipelines that provide real-time data streaming from the widest set of source systems (including SAP, Mainframe, RDBMS, Data Warehouses and more) and automates the transformation to analytics-ready data across Google Cloud.

Qlik's domain and technical expertise in migrating data from any system to Google Cloud is reflected in Qlik being a partner in the recent Google Cloud Cortex Framework launch, the company states.

The Framework endorsed solution reference templates and content for customers to accelerate business outcomes with less risk, complexity and cost, according to Qlik.

Given its initial focus on accelerating SAP data, Qlik offers expertise in managing SAPs complex, application-specific data structures into formats optimised for BigQuery with its SAP on Google Cloud Expertise designation, the company states.

Google Cloud director partnerships Manvinder Singh says, “Organisations are increasingly looking for solutions that help them to extract more business value from their data.

"We're pleased to have Qlik Data Integration available on the Google Cloud Marketplace and provide customers with more ways to make use of their data and technology investments.

Qlik SVP technology alliances Itamar Ankorion says, “Cloud platforms like Google Cloud are serving as key aspects of customers' strategies to unlock more value from their core business data."

Ankorion continues, "As a premier partner and certified for our expertise in transforming and delivering real-time data from any source, augmented by our new listing on the Google Cloud Marketplace, customers can easily procure and deploy with confidence Google Cloud and Qlik together to help drive data-driven decision making across their organisation.
