Business Wire

RADNOR, Pa. -- May 06, 2013

Qlik Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: QLIK) has acquired NComVA AB, a Swedish
company specializing in advanced visualization technology. A QlikTech partner
since 2011, NComVA’s interactive visualization solutions already leverage the
associative data discovery of QlikView, QlikTech’s user-driven business
intelligence platform. This acquisition expands QlikTech’s expertise and
capabilities in advanced visualization and analysis to pair with its
associative approach to delivering a deeper understanding of data, especially
when multiple data sources are analyzed together.

“Critical to QlikView’s success is that it is both gorgeous and genius,” said
Anthony Deighton, Chief Technology Officer. “We call the visualizations
gorgeous and the associations genius, and you would not want to have one
aspect without the other. NComVA’s technology and its people will help broaden
our advances in visualization, especially when linked with the real power of
business discovery, which is the ability to associate and analyze data without
restrictions. It’s the freedom to ask additional questions and see new
relationships revealed through visuals and associations combined.”

NComVA’s specialized expertise will contribute many advanced visualization
techniques to expand QlikTech’s existing offering. This includes showing
multivariate data through table lens, radar plot, scatter matrix, parallel
coordinate, tree map and fish eye bars. Innovative capabilities include
interactive time animation which allows users to see how changes in data
relate to each other and the passing of time. Sophisticated applications of
color legends and advanced filtering mechanisms can further help users scan
for relationships and detect outliers. QlikTech also plans to leverage
NComVA’s mapping technology with dedicated geo-spatial chart types and its
data storytelling functionality that fits into QlikView’s collaboration
feature set.

NComVA AB began as an advanced visualization think tank within the National
Center for Visual Analytics (NCVA), a respected European research
visualization laboratory. NComVA has delivered its solutions to approximately
100 governmental, educational and commercial organizations around the world,
