RADNOR, Pa. -- July 9, 2013

QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence (BI), today announced that the National Institute for Health
Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network is using the QlikView Business
Discovery platform to consolidate data and improve the performance of the
clinical research it supports. The platform is being used to harness existing
study data so more educated decisions can be made about the placement and
management of studies, based on key factors such as patient populations and
clinical expertise. Available on mobile devices, this information can then be
shared to evidence the improved performance of clinical research in the NHS.

The Clinical Research Network is part of the National Institute for Health
Research and is the "research delivery arm" for the NHS in England. With over
630,000 people recruited to studies supported by the Network in 2012-2013
alone, it is a task that generates huge amounts of data. All study performance
data can now be viewed within the Open Data Platform (ODP), a solution built
upon QlikView technology, where it is analyzed so the Clinical Research
Network can ensure research studies are being delivered as efficiently as
possible, meeting time and target criteria set out for each study.

After having to dedicate significant man hours getting insight out of a number
of unwieldy databases, the Clinical Research Network now has the ability to
get a full view of study metrics in one central, easily accessible location.
Staff can save time, but still better understand the resources they have
available when making logistical decisions. For example, by pulling all of the
Clinical Research Network's study data together, the ODP on QlikView can show
where trained diabetes nurses are based and then this information is used by
the team to recommend the most appropriate location for running effective
diabetes research in the NHS.

QlikView is also available on mobile devices, which means it can be used to
promote the improved efficiency of clinical research in the NHS. This is
significant nationally as it enables the research community to collaborate
more effectively and important internationally as it enables government to
promote the UK as an ideal location for life-sciences industry investment.

“Like any other government department at the moment, the NHS is being tasked
with running at maximum efficiency and the clinical research environment is no
exception,” comments Richard Corbridge, CIO at the NIHR Clinical Research
Network. “We have a lot of study information: the number of people taking
part, where patient populations are located, how long study set-up takes, etc.
and it makes sense to channel this data for enhanced performance management.
Our new ‘Open Data Platform’ from QlikView has already helped us to make
discoveries around the way our research is managed, so we can run trials in
the most effective fashion. We’re so pleased with the results so far that
we’re using them to set an example for similar organizations. Crucially, it is
helping us to turn data into information that enables insight and delivers
business intelligence.”

Sean Farrington, RVP Northern Europe & MD UK & Ireland at QlikTech, continues:
“The running of medical trials is one of the most important things the NHS
does and we’re thrilled to be helping the organization become a leader in
research innovation. After all, this is research we can all benefit from.”
