- by Radu Cotarcea
Qlik has announced on August 30 the addition of Qlik Accelerate as an expansion of its Qlik Consulting Services. The addition is a consulting service meant to "deliver applications designed and built by industry experts for real-life business scenarios,” which would allow businesses "to gain faster insights into their data, maximize the quality of their applications, minimize the time and costs in app development, and further improve user adoption rates.”
Qlik Accelerate is available to any business already using Qlik Consulting Services and it’s portfolio includes (a) sales performance, (b) travel & expense, (c) supply chain and (d) healthcare.
Peter Harteveld, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development of Compuware, commented: "Through Qlik Accelerate, we were able to be up and running much faster with an application that is robust and meets our exact needs. The Qlik Accelerator suite for Sales Performance has provided us with the foundation to unlock the full potential of Qlik in immediately finding insights within our accounts and opportunities that previously would take multiple hours to find. This has allowed us to manage our business in a much more proactive, focused manner."
Peter Szary, Vice President of Global Consulting Services at Qlik, added: "Businesses of all sizes continuously look for cutting-edge ways to get and stay ahead of the competition and need not only an analytics solution to uncover insight, but also consultancy to maximize the value a business receives from such solutions. By leveraging Qlik Consulting and our team of industry experts, businesses are able to maximize the value of their Qlik solutions swiftly to ensure early and continued user adoption. This leads to a developed framework that turns data into meaningful insights, oftentimes sparking opportunities for individuals to quickly visualize and explore data in depth, reveal associations, and derive insights to drive better business decisions.”
Qlik was recently acquired by Thoma Bravo, reported on by Savage Intel on August 23, 2016.
