QlikView, a leader in user-driven business intelligence (BI), today announced it has been positioned by Gartner in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2014 Business Intelligence and Analytics Platform Magic Quadrant report.

This designation marks the fourth consecutive year that Qlik secured its position in the Leaders Quadrant based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner Magic Quadrants provide a snapshot of how vendors perform in a market segment, with the goal of helping end-users make better informed decisions about companies they may be looking to partner with, or whose services or products they may want to purchase.

According to the report: “By 2015, enterprise buyers of BI platforms will predominantly purchase platforms that support both strong and broad business-user-accessible data discovery capabilities and IT-driven enterprise features for data re-use, governance, security and scalability.”

The report also states: “By 2015, the shifting tide of BI platform requirements, moving from reporting-centric to analysis-centric will mean the majority of BI vendors will make governed data discovery capabilities an expansion of, and the prime competitive capability for, their BI platform offerings.”

“It’s exciting to be a part of the pace of change in this industry. When we started in the Magic Quadrant, established ERP stack players dominated, and as the pioneer in data discovery, it’s great to see that the paradigm has definitively shifted,” said Lars Björk, Qlik chief executive officer. “We are encouraged that the identified trend of governed data discovery is aligned with our roadmap from our acquisition of Expressor to our plans with QlikView.Next ”
