Part of Qlik’s strategy in supplying enterprise customers with an end-to-end analytics strategy is to deliver a more comprehensive portfolio that helps address one of our customers’ biggest challenges – the data itself.     In support of this mission, Qlik recently acquired Podium Data, an enterprise-grade data management company whose solution simplifies and accelerates the customers’ ability to manage, prepare and deliver data to every business user across a diverse data landscape. With the addition of Podium Data, Qlik now has the ability to deliver an unparalleled enterprise data management solution – capable of transforming raw data into a governed and “analytics-ready” information resource for QlikView and Qlik Sense. 


This is exciting news for Qlik customers. The Podium platform can optimize and leverage existing data within an organization, as the technology develops a comprehensive understanding of data sources, and then curates, enriches & transforms all data into business-ready information.   It provides a complete data hub offering with key capabilities, such as:


  • Intelligent Data Profiling and Onboarding
  • Automated Data Quality
  • Data Preparation and Publishing
  • Smart Data Catalog

With the addition of Podium Data, Qlik is now able to directly address a set of common data challenges that exist within many organizations and will enable our customers to be data-driven organizations.   


We are thrilled to have Dr. Paul Barth, Founder and CEO of Podium Data, on Qlik’s Management Team.  As a highly respected and recognized thought-leader on business driven data strategies and best practices, his recent article on CIO.com “Migrating data to the cloud: Back to the future”  supports Qlik’s vision of enabling companies to be data-driven organizations.    Endless insights with control and confidence in data is now possible…
