QlikView skill sets are a perfect fit for IT teams. To illustrate this point, the chart below breaks down the skills you need for QlikView development in two areas: general BI skills and QlikView-specific skills. The vast majority of skills needed for an enterprise deployment of QlikView are not only common to deployment of other BI platforms--but most likely ubiquitous in most IT departments.
This is important because new technologies can seem disruptive. The ability to use existing skills to get a new technology established and scaled out gives an IT group flexibility, continuity, and predictability in sourcing, training, and hardening a deployment.
There are a few skills that are specific to QlikView, although most people who have designed or developed in QlikView will tell you that these are intuitive features that take a fraction of the time to learn compared with other BI technologies.
When a BI tool has this close a match to an already-existing IT skill set, it opens the doors to many deployment and co-development options. IT groups can own and control as much of the development and design as they like, while still enabling business groups to participate in the delivery of Business Discovery applications that can expand the value and reach of a BI deployment more broadly throughout the organization.
QlikView and IT skills are like chocolate and peanut butter together (without the peanut allergies).
