The Academic Program was thrilled when Virginia Tech invited us back to be part of their annual business intelligence bake off. The bake off was created by Professor Hoopes who teaches an MBA course about Predictive Analytics and Data Mining for Executives. Unlike previous years where students focused on a variety of tools, this year Qlik was the tool of choice!
Qlik's very own David Lyon, a Solution Architect joined in on the weekend long bake off to introduce Qlik Sense and kick off the weekend. Students attending the course joined the Academic Program for free software, a year of free training, and the option to receive a Qlik Sense certificate after passing the Qualification exam. After the bake off, students will continue using Qlik during the semester on a case study focused around higher education.
