A new press release states, “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 acquisition 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.”
The release goes on, “Qlik believes an organization’s analytics strategy is only optimized when paired with a strong data strategy, and yet most analytics vendors are falling short on delivering in this area. Customers lack understanding of even what data they already have, and are left struggling to maximize their data’s value. Qlik’s multi-cloud capabilities and upcoming Associative Big Data Index are designed to help customers tap into all their data, explore massive data volumes in any direction and discover new insights. With Podium Data, Qlik will provide customers with an expanding enterprise data management solution to transform their raw data into a governed, analytics-aware information resource. Together Podium Data and Qlik will help break down bottlenecks and silos inherent in disparate enterprise data environments, and expand the value of data throughout the enterprise.”
