QlikTech has announced that NOAD's EQM product suite supports QlikView.

NOAD's EQM product suite provides QlikView customers with solutions to cost effectively control change management, automate and monitor business intelligence life cycle processes, conserve resources, and control costs on an enterprise scale.
With businesses becoming more regulated, NOAD EQM4 will help these companies move toward mandatory compliances such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPAA, Basel II and GxP.
“As QlikView is increasingly deployed across the enterprise, it’s important for IT departments to have control over its use within their organisations.” says Anthony Deighton, senior vice-president of products, QlikTech. “Business users enjoy using QlikView for their ability to gain quick answers. By adding NOAD’s capabilities to an organisation’s use of QlikView, IT can gain the same quick answers on matters of consistency, compliance and security.”
Whether deployed in one department, across several geographies or across the enterprise, QlikView customers who take advantage of NOAD EQM can leverage:
* Change Manager – automatically track all QlikView instances within a company, including originator and listing of all changed versions with associated authorisations.  This tracking provides a means to easily keep compliant, from design through release to production, so passing an IT audit is never a problem. For each application, management can define a process to ensure that components automatically pass through the defined phases, and that company policies and government legislation are enforced. NOAD EQM4 Change Manager's security features provide powerful authorisation and authentication. Users are grouped into roles, and are granted varying levels of authority, providing more control over access usage.
* Deployment Manager – automatically distributes QlikView components or other QVD files to designated target locations at each stage of the development lifecycle. NOAD gathers, distributes, and installs the components as specified by an organisation’s IT policies and protocols. This eliminates the security concerns and inconsistencies of manual file transfers, and coordinates arrival regardless of location or system type, logging all application objects and content. Development managers and auditors can review distribution history, analysing project productivity, failure recovery and compliance with technology change regulations.
“NOAD EQM4 will allow QlikView customers to expand their business intelligence needs to the enterprise level by providing greater control with confidence supported by easily produced evidence.” said Andre Grift, CEO and President of NOAD.  “In QlikView’s spirit of simplicity, NOAD EQM4 can be deployed within days, have users trained in hours and bring control, quality and security instantly.”
