Revenue: Not disclosed
For a company that has signed on 3916 new customers in the past 12 months, at an approximate rate of 14.9 per day, it is little wonder that QlikTech’s QlikView product has now reached more than 542,000 customers in 94 countries around the globe.
QlikView was developed in 1993 during work on a tool for analysing multi-dimensional data for TetraPak.
QlikTech’s patented, in-memory associative technology was called QlikView for its simple, “point-and-click” qualities, installable as a standard program on PCs from the launch of version 3.15 in 1997.
While QlikTech’s global growth is considerable — 50 percent revenue growth in 2008 alone — its local achievements are equally notable. Life Pharmacy, one of QlikTech’s key New Zealand clients, was awarded Best Pharmacy Group at the 2009 Pharmacy Awards in large part to its use of QlikView to solve complicated and specific analysis and benchmarking requirements.
