Qonnections 2019 is Qlik's annual user conference. Key news from this year's conference centered on acquisitions of Podium Data and Attunity, along with an expansion of certifications on Google Cloud Platform, AWS, and Azure, with the ability to support Red Hat OpenShift. Many of these announcements were centered on a key theme of a cloud and SaaS-first approach.
Beyond product announcements, Qlik also announced changes to their subscription model, adopting a single subscription licensing model regardless of deployment options. This will be helpful in providing clarity and ease of adoption. Ultimately, Qlik is investing in boosting access to and use of data, and focusing on the movements in the market. To see the full breakdown of the event, along with the impact to the market, watch my take below.
