QlikTech has announced its position as a global business intelligence partner of Logica, the leading business and technology company.
Building on the company’s existing regional relationships with Logica, the new partnership will expand QlikView’s solutions being offered across Logica’s enterprise clients.
“We recognise that information-rich organisations are looking for easier to use, more agile solutions around business intelligence. To support that growing need, we are building a substantial global capability around QlikView’s Business DiscoveryTM approach," says Stéphane Jaubert, MD of BI at Logica.
"This global partnership signals that we are actively leveraging our strong industry consulting and business intelligence skills, and increasing the focus on analytics to improve the value we bring to customers.
"We believe we can help QlikView meet the challenges of enterprise deployments and strengthen the benefits of consumer-oriented business intelligence.”
To date, Logica has more than 100 consultants trained on QlikView throughout Europe. More than a dozen new client relationships with government and high-profile private sector organisations have been established with QlikView as part of an overall Logica solution.
“Logica’s business reach across Europe has been an important addition to our partner channel,” says Peter McQuade, QlikTech’s VP of global alliances.
“Thanks to the work of partner teams from both companies, Logica has experienced significant regional proof of QlikView success, which has led to its proactive co-ordination to expand QlikView adoption throughout its global BI practice.
"Logica is a strong example of how QlikTech seeks to grow strategic relationships with leading IT companies to address the strong demand for non-traditional BI.”
In Finland, Logica has included QlikView for data analysis and reporting as part of their “Municipalities Model” for integrating systems to run municipalities more efficiently, and is moving forward with other solution models for public and private sectors clients.
In France, Logica has leveraged its QlikView success in Scandinavia with internal knowledge transfer and local training to win new contracts. This includes a third-party maintenance agreement with a major pharmaceutical company.
In Portugal, QlikView has become an important BI offering.
Through Logica, QlikView has been adopted by key organisations in both national tourism and major retailers.
