Our ability to do this all stems from the platform approach.
We have some of the most amazing people in the world working here at Qlik. But it would be ridiculous – especially given our long history of partnership – for us to think that there aren’t many more people who should innovate right along with us. To this end, Qlik has embraced an open view of what it means to be a BI company.
Every facet of Qlik Sense is accessible to developers through our open and modern APIs. Even if you aren’t a developer, you can see this for yourself.
My all-time favorite quote is “No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else,” attributed to Bill Joy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems. It is such a joy to work for a company that embraces this idea and is so willing to include people from across every industry and across the globe in the innovation process.
Amazing things happen when you approach innovation this way.
Who would have ever thought that their “phone” would take the place of their 35mm SLR? The idea would have been absurd to even think about. And now, my “phone” has taken the place this as well as my planner, my flashlight, my alarm clock, my street map, and much more.
It is nearly impossible to know now where this will take us in the long run but I know it will be an awesome journey. What a great time to Qlik!
