a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence,
today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders
Quadrant of the 2013
Business Intelligence and Analytics Platform Magic Quadrant report*.
This designation marks the third consecutive year that QlikTech secured
its position in the Leaders Quadrant based on completeness of vision and
ability to execute. Gartner Magic Quadrants provide a snapshot of how
vendors perform in a market segment with the goal of helping end users
make better informed decisions about companies they may be looking to
partner with, or whose services or products they may want to purchase.
The full report is available for download from http://www.qlikview.com/mq2013.
According to the report, “Increasingly, Gartner sees more organizations
building diagnostic analytics that leverage critical capabilities, such
as interactive visualization, to enable users to drill more easily into
the data to discover new insights.” The report also states that “The
vendors in the market have overwhelmingly concentrated on meeting this
user demand. If there were a single market theme in 2012, it would be
that data discovery became a mainstream architecture.”
“This is a big year for us because every vendor in the Leaders Quadrant
now has some type of self-service BI offering, which signifies that the
category we pioneered has transformed the entire BI industry,” said Lars
Björk, QlikTech’s chief executive officer. “We’ve always been a
disruptive force in the BI industry and our years of innovation creating
this category provide competitive advantage to the opportunistic add-on
offerings. It’s so exciting to maintain leadership in a thriving market
that we initiated. Gartner has chronicled our path from visionary to
challenger to leadership and we look forward to many more years of
redefining the market.”
QlikTech’s history of growth in the new category of self-service BI
continues as companies seek alternatives to traditional software
solutions that take too long to solve their Big Data problems. In June
2012, QlikTech acquired Expressor’s data management solution to help
facilitate the expansion of QlikView deployments so people in an
organization can have the data they need to make better decisions with
critical IT security and governance. In Fall of 2012, the company
announced QlikView Direct Discovery, providing QlikView’s associative
experience on top of data coming directly from external Big Data
sources, and enables users to combine that Big Data with data stored in
memory. This insight for everyone can be deployed in a mobile
environment or with a social and collaborative experience.
Over these years of continued innovation and changing the face of BI,
QlikTech maintains its commitment to become the de facto global standard
for how people gain insight from their data. With QlikView’s patented
core technology, associative experience, and collaboration and mobile
capabilities, users can ask and answer streams of questions on their own
or in teams and groups, wherever they happen to be working. Users can
continue to explore information freely rather than being confined to a
predefined path of questions and they gain rapid time to value in
deployments that can be productive in just days or weeks.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
