RADNOR, Pa.--()--Qlik® (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, today announced it will host “Qlik Virtual Forum: Unleash Your Intuition,” a free virtual event on March 26 in the Americas. Regional virtual events will be held on March 24 in Asia Pacific and March 25 for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Thought leaders and business experts will discuss the latest strategies, solutions and tactics to enable participants to visualize the data that matters to rapidly discover insights.



Everyone has data but it is how they use the data that makes a difference. The Qlik Virtual Forum will provide participants with information and best practices on how to leverage data from any data source for governed fact-based decision making to help accelerate their decision making for competitive advantage.


Featured sessions for Qlik Virtual Forum event include:


Self-Service Analytics: From Static Reporting to Dynamic Discovery – Surya Mukherjee, Senior Analyst, Information Management, Ovum

For most enterprises, self-service and visual analytics solutions cannot be a “yes we do” or “no we don’t” discussion. Organizations that ignore the prevalence and virally expanding popularity of free-to-try desktop analytic tools are doing so at their own peril; shadow IT usually thrives in the most locked down of IT environments. In this session, Mukherjee explores the pros and cons of these solutions and how to work self-service into the overall analytics strategy.


Personal Analytics. Punk Analytics. Pick up your data and play – James Richardson, Business Analytics Strategist, Qlik

Inside every organization, users want to be actively engaged with their data; however, few of them have had the technology to effectively do so until recently. With visual data discovery, more and more people are moving from passively consuming data to actively using it. It is now the era of punk-style analytics, where anyone can play with data in order to learn and make better decisions. Richardson explains what defines this new do-it-yourself approach and what it means for organizations.



Fast & Curious: How to quickly get to your data and ask any question – Anthony Deighton, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, Products, Qlik

Deighton provides an inside look at the power of governed self-service visualization and discovery with a tour of Qlik® Sense to show users how they can rapidly create visualizations from any device and any data source.


Analyze to Innovate - Putting Data At the Heart of Your Strategy – Donald Farmer, Vice President Innovation and Design, Qlik

Organizations today put a great emphasis on innovative thinking, but often do not know how to start putting it into practice. In this presentation, Farmer will explore how detailed analysis and exploration of existing businesses can be the springboard for leapfrog ideas and initiatives. He will look at the basic needs of an innovation strategy and the various sources of data and insight that participants can use to inspire fresh thinking going forward.
