Gartner has named Qlik as part of its Leaders Quadrant of Magic Quadrant for analytics and business intelligence platforms.

It is the tenth consecutive year the company has been positioned in the leaders quadrant, and marks its inclusion in this particular Gartner Magic Quadrant since 2006.

"Qlik is helping customers accelerate business value through data, providing a full range of capabilities to go from raw data to real-time insights and action," says Mike Capone, Qlik CEO.

"Our company continues to grow profitably, and our strong performance has enabled us to invest in delivering an end-to-end platform that includes data integration, AI-driven insights and conversational analytics. With our recent acquisition of RoxAI we are providing automated intelligent alerting for real-time decision making as we continue to invest in capabilities that increase datas value for every organisation," he says.

Modern data analytics encompasses an entire workflow, from initial data preparation, integration and cataloguing, to AI-driven insights, to sharing and taking data-driven action.

"Organisations are accelerating the business value of their data with Qliks unique end-to-end data integration and analytics platforms, which deliver value at every point across the entire data and analytics pipelin," Capone adds.

 "With the industry's only end-to-end data integration and analytics platform, and most robust set of SaaS analytics offerings, Qlik gives organisations the ability to democratise access and use of enterprise-ready data for action for every employee."

Paul French, director of business intelligence, visualisation and reporting, data analytics at Nationwide Building Society, says sata is a crucial part of his company's DNA and employees' everyday work.

"Empowering employees with the right information and the confidence to make decisions with it is vital. Qlik has proven to be fantastic in helping to consolidate disparate data, break down internal silos and drive value," he says.

"By making data more visible and intuitive, business teams have gained new insights across many processes, increasing efficiency and fostering a data-enabled culture."

Qlik is also helping organisations adopt a Data Literacy as a Service approach to creating a data-driven culture through the recent launch of the industry's first Data Literacy Consulting Service and its Signature Services.

"Data Literacy as a Service is a holistic always-on customer success approach designed to drive a data-informed culture by optimising three components: the value of analytic technology and processes, human capital through a comprehensive, ongoing and product-agnostic data literacy adoption program, and mission-critical analytics with a 24/7 enterprise support foundation," explains Capone.
