RADNOR, Pa. -- April 16, 2013

QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence (BI), today announced that Flybe, Europe’s largest regional
airline that boasts the UK’s largest market share of domestic flights, has
deployed the QlikView Business Discovery platform for revenue management,
improved business analysis, and fleet performance (punctuality and flight
efficiency). With existing BI tools in place, Flybe was not looking for a
replacement but there was a need for a complementary platform that could
provide more complex and detailed BI analysis of very large datasets.

QlikView allows the airline to gain near real-time data access straight from
its Oracle databases in a five minute process and refreshes data when
concurrent users are accessing and querying it, which is essential in
providing a consistent view across the business. Now with QlikView, Flybe can
monitor sales in near real-time which is crucial for management
decision-making and out of hours access.

QlikView, introduced to Flybe by Aviation Analytics, a consultancy serving the
aviation industry and focused on BI analysis strategies and delivery for
aviation, has quickly created new and detailed views for Flybe and designed an
application that understands the ‘pulse of the business.’ The airline’s
existing in-memory analytical tools could not compete on the same scale and
any upgrade of the existing toolset was not able to deliver the anticipated
return on investment in terms of the level of detail and time efficiencies

Quinton Davies, Business Intelligence Manager for Flybe comments: “We were
looking for a customized data visualization tool that was scalable and
intuitive that would deliver quick-to-market BI initiatives. With our support
partner, Aviation Analytics, we were very quickly up and running after only
three days’ training enabling us to deliver our system ‘go live’ within six
weeks. With our partner’s assistance, we can now deliver and continue
producing ^ first rate BI views across the whole Flybe organization. The usual
barriers of resource and timescales have been considerably reduced and
QlikView empowers us with a real self-service environment that allows rapid
turnaround of Year-on-Year analysis, metric comparisons and ‘what if’
scenarios from initial business discussions to the prototyping and production
of BI applications.

“Flybe is impressed with the online QlikView community and views it as a
mature, informative and important part of our development lifecycle and we are
looking forward to continuing to move forward with them as they introduce even
more developments that will assist us further with route profitability

Sean Farrington, RVP Northern Europe & MD UK & Ireland at QlikTech adds: “As a
key player in the aviation industry, it’s vital for Flybe to be able to keep
an eye on performance, whether fleet punctuality, flight efficiency and
revenues, in order to manage the airline and deliver an outstanding service to
its customers. Using QlikView Business Discovery, Flybe can now track for
opportunities to further develop its services in the aviation industry and
react quickly when required.”
