QlikTech today announced its position as a global business intelligence partner of Logica, the leading business and technology company. Building on the company’s existing regional relationships with Logica, the new partnership will expand QlikView’s solutions being offered across Logica’s enterprise clients.
“We recognize that information-rich organizations are looking for easier to use, more agile solutions around business intelligence. To support that growing need, we are building a substantial global capability around QlikView’s Business DiscoveryTM approach. This global partnership signals that we are actively leveraging our strong industry consulting and business intelligence skills, and increasing the focus on analytics to improve the value we bring to customers,” said Stéphane Jaubert, Managing Director of BI at Logica. “We believe we can help QlikView meet the challenges of enterprise deployments and strengthen the benefits of consumer-oriented business intelligence.”
To date, Logica has more than 100 consultants trained on QlikView throughout Europe. More than a dozen new client relationships with government and high-profile private sector organizations have been established with QlikView as part of an overall Logica solution.
“Logica’s business reach across Europe has been an important addition to our partner channel,” said Peter McQuade, QlikTech’s VP of Global Alliances. “Thanks to the work of partner teams from both companies, Logica has experienced significant regional proof of QlikView success which has led to its proactive coordination to expand QlikView adoption throughout its global BI practice. Logica is a strong example of how QlikTech seeks to grow strategic relationships with leading IT companies to address the strong demand for non-traditional BI.”
