The 2019 Qlik Federal Analytics Summit in Washington, DC showcased the evolution Qlik has been going through over the past two years, which has created a really compelling value proposition:

  • Data Literacy mission―Qlik's campaign to democratize data is in its second year and going strong. It is at the heart of a virtuous cycle to both improve society (literacy is good!) and advance Qlik's brand.
  • Adept moves regarding scalability and portability―Qlik Sense on Kubernetes; true portability across public or private cloud, on-premise, and SaaS (Qlik or managed service provider).
  • Impressive enhancements in the analytics engine that powers Qlik Sense―rich APIs; Qlik Core; Associative Big Data Index.
  • Solid ecosystem―Qlik recently purchased Qlik Data Catalyst (Podium Data) for data management and data discovery, and Attunity for data movement and data integration. These new products – now with deeper hooks into Qlik Sense, while retaining their heterogeneous integration capabilities – paint a compelling end-to-end picture for data architects, while squarely communicating to the C-suite that their investment in Qlik won't paint them into a corner.

In addition to Qlik's own content, this event is always a great chance to see the great things the federal government and non-profits (e.g. Office of the Undersecretary of Defense; GSA; Mercy Ships) are achieving. They are the embodiment of Qlik CEO Mike Capone's entreaty that if you want to compare Qlik to its competitors, choose a hard challenge you're facing and real outcomes you are trying to achieve. To everyone we met yesterday: keep up the great work!
