Qlik’s has successfully completed the acquisition of Talend. With this, Qlik expands its offerings to enable modern organizations to unlock, transform, analyze and take action on data. Qlik customers now have access to the automated delivery of reliable and business-ready data. This increases both operational efficiency and innovation that ultimately lead to more strategic business decisions.
“With the acquisition of Talend, Qlik offers significant benefits to the customer. For example, we offer a more extensive product range and improved support services. In addition, we invest in innovation and R&D,” said CEO Mike Capone. “Qlik’s broad expertise in data integration, analytics, AI and machine learning combined with Talend’s solutions deliver the most comprehensive results in the industry.”
Fragmentation of data is increasingly caused by the proliferation of different information sources that are not connected to each other. With Talend, Qlik offers a new set of solutions that connect resources. Technological backlog and additional costs are also prevented. As a result, confidence in the company grows as it becomes clear that reliable data is available when it is needed.
“The services of Qlik and Talend complement each other perfectly. Customers benefit from the entire data lifecycle no matter where they are in their digital transformation,” said Mike Leone, Principal Analyst for Analytics & AI at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Numerous data initiatives, such as labs and communities, are trying to build trust within data ecosystems. This is not just about data, but also about processes and people. Customers can now take advantage of robust data integration capabilities and data management, enabling them to make a difference in systems and build trust.”
Qlik and Talend solutions extend capabilities in many key areas, such as data quality, transformation, application connectivity, and API services. Qlik also remains accessible to virtually any data source, target, architecture or methodology, so customers always have the data they need, when they need it.
Qlik’s acquisition of Talend has established a leadership position in multiple market categories. For seven years in a row, Gartner has positioned Talend as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools, and a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Solutions for five years in a row. Qlik has also been a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms for thirteen consecutive years.
