“Data is growing for every company and our customers need more efficient and affordable ways of storing and accessing data,” said Jim Sears, Vice President of Global Alliances and Channels at MariaDB Corporation. “Qlik Data Integration and MariaDB together help our customers empower their data lifecycles – handling data creation, storage, rapid data migration, application modernization, automated machine learning and analytics – to transform their business with data-driven decisions.”

Qlik is a leader in cloud data integration, change-data-capture (CDC), analytics data pipeline development, and data lineage/cataloging – delivering analytics-ready data fast to cloud platforms where it can be discovered and provisioned by analysts and data scientists. MariaDB is a leader in the development of modern databases that enable massive scale without sacrificing the relational data model and ACID transactions that businesses require. Together, Qlik Data Integration and MariaDB make data available for developers to create purpose-built applications and for businesses to analyze the performance of these applications in real time.

“With Qlik and MariaDB, customers can modernize their costly, legacy databases and data warehouses as they move to the cloud,” said Itamar Ankorion, Senior Vice President, Technology Alliances at Qlik. “Qlik can support MariaDB customers that want fully automated, real-time, CDC and data integration with MariaDB database products for a more data-centric and data-driven business. It’s a winning combination.”

“Our data-driven approach to shipping ensures that companies in a wide range of industries have tailored, optimized solutions that save money and time,” said Gina Hanks, Senior Director of Information Technology at OSM Worldwide. “That requires a highly efficient, unquestionably reliable backend. Streaming our analytical data from SQL Server to MariaDB Enterprise Server with ColumnStore via Qlik was fast and easy. Combined with our BI tools, Qlik and MariaDB give us the ability to utilize our powerful new data lake for our data needs.”
