QlikView, the world’s leading new generation business intelligence software, has been named Best Midmarket Software Solution at the annual Gartner Midsize Enterprise Summit East, held last month in Atlanta.
This was the latest in a series of industry recognitions for QlikView, the flagship product of Swedish company QlikTech, which produces in-memory analysis and reporting software. In May, QlikTech made the Red Herring 100 list of the most innovative privately-held companies. (Previous winners spotted by Red Herring’s editors are the early eBay and Google.)
Also in May, QlikTech was selected as one of six “Fast Track” innovators during the annual Software 2007 event, for its demonstration of financial viability and market adoption with customers.
During April, the Sand Hill Group recognised QlikTech as one of the 25 most innovative players in the software industry and in January, Gartner positioned QlikTech in the “visionaries” quadrant in its Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms.
Industry analyst IDC named QlikTech as the fastest growing BI software company in the world for the third year in a row in late 2006.
“We are honoured to be recognised for our innovation and ability to deliver a powerful solution that is affordable and easy to use,” says Rick Pitts, president and CEO of QlikTech North America. “This year has been an exciting one for our customers, our partners and our company. We believe this recognition reflects what we're seeing in the market – an increased appetite for simple, powerful business analysis.”
Davide Hanan, MD of local distributor QlikView South Africa, adds: “South African companies are showing the same appetite. Everyone wants the flexibility, speed and ease of use that QlikView offers. With QlikView, we are able to deliver what users have been dreaming of for the past 20 years.”
As well as being named Best Midmarket Software Solution, QlikTech was also nominated by attendees for ‘Best Execution of a Software Solution’. At last year’s summit, QlikTech was awarded ‘Best Execution of a Midmarket IT Solution’.
