Analytics8's President shares some of the highlights for him during Qlik's annual partner conference, Qonnections.
The annual Qlik partner conference, Qonnections, has become quite an event for both Qlik and Analytics8. We’ve been attending for the last five years and as the event has grown (to 1365 attendees!) we have increased our participation. This year we sent thirteen of our staff and were one of two platinum sponsors.
Qlik does a fantastic job educating their partners and getting us excited about what’s to come. We were excited to learn about Qlik’s plans around data syndication and Qlik Sense 2.0. It was fun to see Qlik taking about data syndication, something we have promoted for quite some time and even built into our products. Qonnections continues to be a great opportunity for Analytics8 to grow our Qlik practice – from software sales to consulting to training to promoting our own products.
Just before the conference, we were able to close our acquisition of GlobeQlik and announced the general availability of QlikMaps for Qlik Sense. We met hundreds of current and potential new partners and customers at our booth featuring QlikMaps, at various sessions we presented, and at the Tuesday evening QlikMaps-sponsored entertainment.
A highlight of the conference was winning “North American Solution Provider of the Year” for 2014.
For Analytics8, Qonnections was a great success! We’re already looking forward to Qonnections 2016!
