What do SCM, CRM, geographic modelling, network security and retail sales analysis applications have in common? They are just a handful among the many OEM solutions powered by QlikView, QlikTech’s business intelligence (BI) platform.
Many of these new and innovative solutions were showcased at Qonnections 2008, QlikTech’s annual Global Partner Summit which took place in Miami.
Through Qonnect, QlikTech’s global partner program, OEM Partners ranging from independent software vendors (ISVs), including software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers, to information providers embed QlikView technology into their own applications and services. As a result, vendors – and their customers – gain more powerful and visual dashboards, analysis and reporting capabilities in their industry-specific and functional solutions.
The Qonnect program provides OEM partners with the tools and support to integrate and deploy branded business analysis solutions in a matter of weeks. “Powered by QlikView” solutions developed through the Qonnect program enable companies to deliver enhanced business benefits and a better user experience to their customers.
“User demand for accessible and intuitive software has drawn a line between vendors who succeed with innovative, flexible solutions or stagnate in traditional software and business models,” says Anthony Deighton, senior vice-president of Marketing at QlikTech. “Qonnect OEM Partners are delivering value for their own businesses and their customers with enhanced powerful analysis that is fast to learn, integrate and change.”
