Last week at QlikWorld we shared how customers across every industry (leaders like ABB and Best Buy, just to name a few) are driving their data strategies forward through the powerful combination Qlik and Snowflake.

With Snowflake Summit just a few short weeks away, we wanted to dive deeper into just what’s driving these customers to deploy Qlik alongside Snowflake, and how similar those drivers are to what’s accelerating today’s enterprise transformation efforts.

The cloud is the go-to platform for modern analytics. Enterprises want approaches and technologies that enable analytics in the cloud to deliver more value with quicker iterations and fewer resources. That requires modernizing data warehousing processes to embrace automation, agility and real-time data.

Per Gartner’s “The Impact of Data Warehouse Automaton” by Henry Cook, published 30 December 2021:

  • By 2023, 75% of all databases will be on a cloud platform, reducing the DBMS vendor landscape and increasing complexity for data governance and integration.

  • By 2024, 50% of new system deployments in the cloud will be based on a cohesive cloud data ecosystem rather than on manually integrated point solutions.

This matches so well to what the combination of Qlik and Snowflake delivers – automating the data warehouse, optimizing real-time data pipelines, delivering a secure data catalog and capping it all with industry-leading analytics.

Qlik’s solution for Snowflake automates the design, implementation and updates of data warehouses and data marts while minimizing the manual, error-prone design processes of data modeling, ETL coding and scripting. As a result, you can speed analytics projects, achieve greater agility and reduce risk – all while fully realizing the instant elasticity and cost advantages of Snowflake’s cloud-built data platform.

“In our dynamic industry, it’s essential to deliver continuously updated and analytic-ready data that drives decisions and improves insights. The unique combination of Qlik and Snowflake enables the agility our business demands.” – Dallas Thornton, Director of Digital Services, PACCAR

Here’s what it looks like in action:
