RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QlikTech, (NASDAQ:QLIK) a leading business intelligence software company, today announced the tremendous momentum and popularity of its QlikView Personal Edition. The company started by averaging 6,000 to 7,500 new users each month, but in the past several months have seen numbers rise steadily to a record 10,900 in November 2010. These are individuals registering to download the free, powerful QlikView analysis platform which allows users to build a custom BI application for the visibility they need to explore their data to make better decisions.
Keith Edmonds, IT executive with Aon, a global provider of risk management services, insurance, and human capital consulting, downloaded QlikView Personal Edition on his laptop prior to boarding a flight home to New Zealand from Singapore. With no previous QlikView training at all, he was able to develop a fully-functional revenue analysis application, covering a host of countries in Asia – all while on his flight. “By the time I landed in Auckland, I had developed the first application for our company, and I immediately took it back to management,” said Edmonds. “The fact that I was able to load a significant amount of data, build my application and have it completely functional by the time I landed, made it clear that QlikView was the solution that we needed.”
With QlikView, users can analyze any data, from business expenses and budgets, to in-depth product research and statistics about a favorite pastime or source of entertainment. QlikView includes everything individuals need to immediately develop and work with custom applications on their own – eliminating the need for data warehouses, reliance on experts or even dedicated training. If users do have questions, they can visit the expansive and active user community, QlikCommunity, for insight, examples and answers as they begin working with QlikView.
“QlikView Personal Edition fits perfectly into QlikTech’s philosophy of giving users access to the data they need when and where they need it. We think this is a great way to show people who are new to QlikView the power and control you can feel by exploring your own data to make it meaningful, visual, and even fun. This comes from our belief that people should be allowed to try before they buy and get the results they expect in a rapid and convincing way, rather than purchasing on a promise,” said Anthony Deighton, Senior Vice President of Products for QlikTech. “Our continued commitment to simplicity and ease of use to put users in control is what’s driving more and more people to download QlikView each month.”
