RADNOR, Pa.--()--Qlik® (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, today announced that a record number of partner attendees will be on hand to kick off Qonnections 2015 (www.qlik.com/Qonnections2015), the Company’s tenth annual Global Partner Summit being held April 26-29 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

What:

   

Qonnections, which has brought the global Qlik partner community together for ten years, welcomes attendees from around the world to the three-day event to share best practices for the sales and support of Qlik solutions. Attendees will also discover how they play a transformational role in Qlik’s strategic roadmap, which will include details on the full spectrum of current and future product innovations. QlikView® and Qlik® Sense certification exams will be offered, along with 140 track sessions and 34 hours of hand-on training.

 

Back by popular demand is the Qlik Hackathon. Teams will be presented with several challenges involving MedAir, an international humanitarian aid agency providing help for populations affected by natural disasters or conflict and a Qlik “Change Our World” grant recipient and partner. Developers must use web skills, data, and Qlik Sense to achieve new insights and visualizations that best address the challenge. Every Hackathon participant will have access to Qlik Branch, a collaborative workspace and open exchange, and support from internal Qlik experts moderating the event.

 
Qlik will also host a Midnight Madness contest to discover the very best app building skills and development talent using Qlik Sense capabilities and functionalities. Contestants will form teams of two, three, or four developer fanatics, demo experts, or app magicians that are ready to push the boundaries on a user adoption business scenario. Each team will be provided with a scenario, clear requirements, and the challenge to create the ultimate self-service data visualization and discovery application app – all within the three-hour Midnight Madness timeframe.
