RADNOR, Pa. -- February 8, 2013

QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the
Leaders Quadrant of the 2013 Business Intelligence and Analytics Platform
Magic Quadrant report*. This designation marks the third consecutive year that
QlikTech secured its position in the Leaders Quadrant based on completeness of
vision and ability to execute. Gartner Magic Quadrants provide a snapshot of
how vendors perform in a market segment with the goal of helping end users
make better informed decisions about companies they may be looking to partner
with, or whose services or products they may want to purchase. The full report
is available for download from http://www.qlikview.com/mq2013.

According to the report, “Increasingly, Gartner sees more organizations
building diagnostic analytics that leverage critical capabilities, such as
interactive visualization, to enable users to drill more easily into the data
to discover new insights.” The report also states that “The vendors in the
market have overwhelmingly concentrated on meeting this user demand. If there
were a single market theme in 2012, it would be that data discovery became a
mainstream architecture.”

“This is a big year for us because every vendor in the Leaders Quadrant now
has some type of self-service BI offering, which signifies that the category
we pioneered has transformed the entire BI industry,” said Lars Björk,
QlikTech’s chief executive officer. “We’ve always been a disruptive force in
the BI industry and our years of innovation creating this category provide
competitive advantage to the opportunistic add-on offerings. It’s so exciting
to maintain leadership in a thriving market that we initiated. Gartner has
chronicled our path from visionary to challenger to leadership and we look
forward to many more years of redefining the market.”

QlikTech’s history of growth in the new category of self-service BI continues
as companies seek alternatives to traditional software solutions that take too
long to solve their Big Data problems. In June 2012, QlikTech acquired
Expressor’s data management solution to help facilitate the expansion of
QlikView deployments so people in an organization can have the data they need
to make better decisions with critical IT security and governance. In Fall of
2012, the company announced QlikView Direct Discovery, providing QlikView’s
associative experience on top of data coming directly from external Big Data
sources, and enables users to combine that Big Data with data stored in
memory. This insight for everyone can be deployed in a mobile environment or
with a social and collaborative experience.

Over these years of continued innovation and changing the face of BI, QlikTech
maintains its commitment to become the de facto global standard for how people
gain insight from their data. With QlikView’s patented core technology,
associative experience, and collaboration and mobile capabilities, users can
ask and answer streams of questions on their own or in teams and groups,
wherever they happen to be working. Users can continue to explore information
freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions and they
gain rapid time to value in deployments that can be productive in just days or
weeks.
