There are many things that are just better together: Peanut Butter and Jelly (or Fluff for my fellow New Englanders), Bangers and Mash (for the original Englanders), Kermit and Miss Piggy (dating myself now) and of course…Microsoft and Qlik. While the last combination might furrow a few brows and think that quarantine has affected my logic, our 1,000s of mutual customers certainly feel that way and being recognized by Microsoft with this award is further confirmation.

While market validation comes in many forms, two of the most powerful are customer adoption and partner recognition. Today we celebrate both as Qlik’s Data Integration solution for Microsoft Azure was named a finalist by Microsoft for its Analytics Partner of the Year Award. The annual award is given to partners “demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.”

This finalist recognition is hard won – the annual Microsoft partner awards, which cover various categories, sees over 4,400 nominees from more than 100 countries worldwide. Qlik’s recognition highlights Qlik Data Integration’s ability to migrate and replicate data to any Azure Data Services target, to drive customer consumption of Azure, and enable enterprise-wide analytics for customers like Ferguson Enterprises. With the Qlik Data Integration platform, Ferguson can now easily pull data in real time from 80+ sources with automated data pipelines into Azure Data Lake Storage and Azure Synapse and is now realizing their vision of executing analytics on one platform in Azure.

“I am honored to announce the winners and finalists of the 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards,” said Rodney Clark, corporate vice president, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief, Microsoft. “These remarkable partners have displayed a deep commitment to building world-class solutions for customers—from cloud-to-edge—and represent some of the best and brightest our ecosystem has to offer.”

We are truly honored to have received this recognition from Microsoft. There are many ways to learn more about our joint solution. Download our joint eBook on how Qlik and Microsoft are addressing the unique challenges of SAP data migration here, or attend a Deep-Dive session here on how our joint solutions decrease time-to-insights and how to blend data with other sources like SAP data in Azure. Also covered is Qlik and Microsoft’s free Proof-of-Value (PoV) that includes software and expertise to remove barriers and accelerates real-time analytics. If interested, you can also request a one-on-one Qlik & Microsoft Azure demo here.

@Qlik is thrilled to be recognized as a finalist in the @Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards; kudos to such a greater partner and collaborator
