Qlik announced the completion of its acquisition of Attunity which it says together the leading provider of data integration and big data management software solutions with a market leading analytics and BI platform.
In a competitive environment where trusted, real-time enterprise data is crucial to success, organisations are looking for a more holistic and agile approach to data integration and analytics, according to the company.
Bringing together Attunity’s data integration solutions with the data management and cataloguing solutions of Qlik Data Catalyst, enables it to deliver a comprehensive enterprise data integration platform to transform their raw data into a governed, analytics-aware information resource, it says.
The goal is to enable the movement of data in real time across multiple cloud environments and data lakes. Qlik says it can then be combined with predictive analytics and artificial intelligence to scale real-time insights across the entire organisation.
“Attunity’s agile and real-time data integration capabilities give Qlik a unique platform that perfectly aligns with an enterprise’s DataOps and analytics strategy,” said Mike Capone, Qlik CEO.
“The ability to help customers better automate and manage the delivery of trusted data for insights will help them lead with data to solve their most challenging problems.”
By combining Attunity with Qlik Data Catalyst, Qlik says it will deliver the platform customers need to enable modern data architectures and DataOps for Analytics. Attunity extends Qlik’s breadth of enterprise data integration capabilities through cross-platform data streaming and automated delivery of analytic ready data sets that directly supports the market shift to cloud and real-time analytics.
“Being able to quickly and confidently analyse enterprise-ready data is central to identifying and driving growth opportunities for Pekin Insurance,” said John Croft, Principal Architect, Pekin Insurance.
Qlik says it will ensure that Attunity products continue to support and integrate with all the market’s leading cloud, data, analytics and BI environments. The acquisition also builds on Qlik’s extensive partner ecosystem, and will pull in Attunity’s partner network to further expand Qlik’s go-to-market reach and strengthen its data lake management and cloud infrastructure partnerships, including Microsoft, Amazon AWS, Google, Cloudera, and Snowflake.
