Acquisition Expands Qlik’s Portfolio Beyond Analytics, Enabling Analytics-Ready Data Strategy to Drive Data-Driven Transformation
July 24, 2018
Radnor, PA – Qlik®, a leader in data analytics, today announced the acquisition of Podium Data, an enterprise-grade data management company whose solution simplifies and accelerates customers’ ability to manage, prepare and deliver analytics-ready data to every business user across a diverse data landscape. This acquistion expands Qlik’s mission, moving beyond analytics to being a provider of solutions that democratize data for every user to create a more data literate world.
Enterprise data strategies have evolved to rely heavily on the creation of data lakes, however customers are realizing that these and other data sources aren’t designed to easily and quickly deliver data to the business user. In many instances, data lakes have only increased customer data complexity and management headaches. According to Gartner Inc., “Through 2018, 90% of deployed data lakes will be rendered useless, as they’re overwhelmed with information assets captured for uncertain use cases.” (Gartner.
