Visualize This: Qlik Named Top 10 Innovative Growth Company for 2015

Qlik checks into Forbes annual list of top 100 global innovative growth companies and we use Qlik Sense to bring the list to life.

In what has become somewhat of a tradition here at Qlik, we figured the best way to celebrate being named to the Top 10 in Forbes’ Most Innovative Growth Companies Listwas to plug the results into Qlik Sense and see what we could learn.

One thing we already knew was that 27 of our valued customers and partners were listed as well and we could not be happier for them – but we wanted to learn more.

The data we pulled from the list included all of the metrics used to assess the companies: enterprise value, 5-year average net income growth, 5-year average sales growth, industry and of course, company names.

Here are just a few of the insights we were able to glean:

The largest enterprise value by industry belongs, unsurprisingly, to Software and Services at $108.2 billion with a 5-year average sales growth of 26.6%.
