Qlik (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), today showcased the winning Qlik Hackathon application, Medair Interactive Scorecard, which was built and designed by Qlik partners Speros Kokenes of Axis Group and Jason Mondesir of Aculytics. Built on QlikView.Next, the scorecard supports the fundraising efforts of international humanitarian organization, Medair, one of the two official Corporate Charity Partners of the Qlik Change Our World Corporate Social Responsibility program.

Medair is a global organization that helps people who are suffering in remote and devastated communities around the world to survive crises, recover with dignity and develop skills to build a better future. The Medair Interactive Scorecard provides a visual snapshot of the impact changes in funding would have on the number of beneficiaries in a given humanitarian response.

The Qlik Hackathon, held at the company’s 2014 partner conference, Qonnections, focused on helping Medair’s fundraising efforts by challenging teams to use QlikView.Next and its platform with open APIs and web integration capabilities to develop an impactful application for the organization. The Hackathon was also supported by Qlik partners, HP Vertica and GNIP.

In just one day, participants leveraged Twitter data and Medair’s internal information on budget, expenditures, fundraising and beneficiary data on the types of emergencies Medair responds to and how many people they have helped around the world to build an application. The goal was to uncover impactful insights that the organization can use now and in the future.

“It was incredible to see Qlik, HP Vertica and GNIP come together to support this event and utilize our data from remote locations around the globe to help us analyze our work better. The resulting applications will help not only Medair but other humanitarian organizations in the future,” said Wendy Dyment, MD, MPH, Senior Health and Nutrition Advisor for Medair. “The winning entry stood out by examining multiple variables and creating an internal scorecard showing the relationships between our funding, impact, donors and the types of humanitarian crises we respond to – from disease outbreaks to natural disasters. We can now calculate the amount of money it would take to reach all the beneficiaries in a certain crisis in the world with just the slide of a mouse.”
