Björk continued, “I am confident in the steps we are taking to make QlikTech more enterprise ready from a sales, product and services perspective including delivering against the opportunity of Big Data -- making data accessible and actionable for the business user. With our key differentiators such as our associative search technology, our recently announced QlikView Direct Discovery, and our expanded partnership strategy including companies such as Teradata, we are strengthening our ability to execute, and improving our position within the enterprise market.”
