QlikView becomes a Challenger - Gartner's Latest BI Report
Because of it's success in 2009 QlikView has moved from Visionary to Challenger in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for BI Platforms.
Among QlikView's strengths Gartner notes that it is a self contained BI platform that permits rapid application development, is particularly suitable for those users who want to reduce dependence on IT departments and ranks very high for ease of use and low cost of implementation. It has powerful performance capabilities on large data sets albeit fro smaller numbers of end users than the traditional vendors.
They point out that "A perfect storm" of factors has been key to QlikView's success. QlikView's innovative and disruptive combination of in-memory technology, built-in data integration and mashup capability, and intuitive end-user tools hit the market at a time when 64-bit computing enabled scalability of that model. At the same time, users were disillusioned with the need to go through IT for analysis and the economic environment favored smaller, low-cost deployments.
Gartner frequently sees companies deploy QlikView for use in rapid prototyping and requirements gathering, even alongside - and while they take a much longer time to deploy - their enterprise BI standard platform.
Enhancing its low-cost value proposition, since 2009, users have been able to download a free version of QlikView 9 for personal use, with extensive, free, Web-based training available. Also, QlikView can now be deployed in the cloud via Amazon EC2 to further speed time to value, scale capacity on the fly, and give users the benefit of lower upfront costs.
