RADNOR, Pa. -- July 24, 2013

QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business
Intelligence (BI), today announced that the QlikView Academic Program has
awarded nearly 100 grants in 35 countries since launching one year ago. Part
of QlikTech’s global Corporate Social Responsibility Program, the QlikView
Academic Program allows any accredited, university-level institution to apply
for free licenses of the QlikView Business Discovery platform to use within
its educational curricula.

Universities around the globe benefiting from the QlikView Academic Program
include: Universidad Nacional de La Pampa (Argentina); Macquarie University
(Australia); British Columbia Institute of Technology (Canada); University of
Economics, Prague (Czech Republic); Tallinn University of Technology
(Estonia); Polytech Lyon (France); Dresden University of Technology (Germany);
Thammasat University (Thailand); Stockholm University (Sweden); University of
Derby (UK); Idaho State University (US); and Hult International Business
School (US).

The National University of Singapore Business School is addressing the need
for students to build strong analytics skills in its purchasing and materials
management courses. Taught by former Executive Director Global Supply Chain
Intelligence at Estee Lauder Companies, Keith Carter worked extensively with
QlikView, and knew he could use it to demonstrate industry practices
effectively. Students benefit by learning about the advances in analytics and
the corresponding new opportunities that use analytics to help tackle complex
business and societal challenges. The classes also give students the
opportunity to apply analytics skills to real business scenarios.

"Because of the QlikView Academic Program, instead of using textbooks, our
students are getting real industry experience with Big Data tools to learn
about a wide variety of industries such as transportation, beverage, and
retail,” said Carter, Adjunct Associate Professor, Decision Sciences National,
at University of Singapore Business School. “As a result, students preparing
for careers are gaining strong analytical skills, and learning how they can
leverage data to make better business decisions. Knowing how to use a
ground-breaking tool like QlikView lets them show their future bosses what’s

Millikin University’s (USA) RJ Podeschi, Assistant Professor of Information
Systems , has had a similar experience using QlikView in his classroom. For
example, he tasked students with building QlikView apps that analyze
commercial airline traffic to identify what attributes were more likely to
cause flights to be delayed. They also built apps that analyzed donor data
looking for correlations between facets such as event attendance and giving,
attributes that constitute a good donor, and territory analysis for
development staff.

“Students preparing for careers are gaining strong analytical skills, and
learning how they can leverage data to make better, more strategic business
decisions,” commented Podeschi. “Because QlikView is a simple and easy tool
for students to wrap their heads around, I was able to spend more time in
class working with them to build their applications and hone their skills,
rather than getting a complicated BI tool to work properly. Seeing my students
achieve their ‘a-ha’ moments thanks to QlikView made this one of my most
memorable semesters yet.”

Villanova School of Business (USA) Wenhong Luo, Associate Professor of
Accounting and Information Systems , believes analytics is going mainstream,
which makes it important to invigorate the classroom by integrating the latest
technology into his curriculum. To hear more from Professor Luo and his
