Specialist business intelligence (BI) software product development company, QVAuctor: ebiexperts, recently announced its new distribution partnership with South Africa Qlik Master Reseller (SAQMR, SAQlik).

"I am very excited by the partnership with ebiexperts. At SAQMR, we are focused on becoming the analytics journey partners for our customers, and WIP contributes significantly to us realising this vision. Ensuring that users' needs are communicated, documented and tracked from conception to release of the app is a critical component of speeding up the journey and ensuring the destination delivers on expectation," says James Hickman, MD, SAQMR.

The distribution partnership covers the African continent and all SAQMR sub-partnerships. This partnership enables us to formalise an African strategy, in which both parties can actively participate.

"Being able to partner with the calibre of SAQMR emphasises that our Qlik agile life cycle management strategy is the correct solution for the market, enabling organisations to manage their Qlik developments, environments and files effectively. SAQlik, a multi-award-winning Qlik Master Reseller, and its sub-partner network, have implemented world-class solutions within the region! We will work actively with SAQlik and their sub-partner network to ensure the quality and thus stability and assurance of Qlik across the continent," says John Paul Kirton, CEO, QVAuctor: ebiexperts.

ebiexperts' latest release of its flagship WIP product provides great value. It offers the ability to control the publication promotion through workflow and execution of publisher tasks directly from WIP (among other valuable features).

"We have many clients with mature, well governed IT procedures. The development, test, production cycle is well defined with Qlik Sense Enterprise, so why WIP? Primarily because it amplifies the skill of the administrators. The workflow engine is ideal, supporting agile development practice. A key feature is Complexity Analysis, which gives administrators a consistent benchmark for evaluating Qlik Sense Apps before promoting to test or production; of course, all this over quality version control. WIP is a brilliant example of the value of the Qlik Sense Enterprise platform/API strategy," says Adam Barrie-Smith, CTO, SAQMR.

Any customers and sub-partners on the African content can contact SAQlik directly for any support they may need: sales@saqlik.com.

South Africa Qlik Master Reseller

South Africa Qlik Master Reseller (previously known as QlikView SA) has been a member of the EOH group of companies since 1 July 2014, facilitating a great partnership that aims to accelerate growth for Qlik in southern Africa directly or through its specialised partner channel. SA Qlik MR's portfolio of products meets customers' growing needs from reporting and self-service visual analysis to guided, embedded and custom analytics. Over 1 800 customers rely on Qlik solutions to gain meaning out of information from varied sources, exploring the hidden relationships within data that lead to insights that ignite good ideas.

These solutions bridge the gap between traditional BI solutions and inadequate spreadsheet applications. The in-memory associative search technology that Qlik pioneered, pioneered the self-service BI category, allowing users to explore information freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions. Appropriate from SME to the largest global enterprise, Qlik's self-service analysis can be deployed with data governance in days or weeks. The platform's app-driven model works with existing BI solutions, offering an immersive mobile and social, collaborative experience.
