Partnership to accelerate access to actionable information for diplomacy and humanitarian relief missions
Radnor, PA – Qlik®, a leader in visual analytics, today announced a strong, strategic partnership with the United Nations bringing the power of data analytics to global humanitarian efforts to impact efficiency and efficacy. The United Nations, through the Office of Information and Communications Technology (OICT), is leveraging Qlik’s visual analytics platform to create applications advancing United Nations’ missions by aggregating and presenting information in an easy-to-use way that provides valuable insights for prompt action. This partnership comes as part of the Qlik Corporate Social Responsibility “Change Our World” program, which provides software and services to make the good work of humanitarian organizations better by making sense of complex information.
This partnership underscores the United Nation Secretary-General’s recent remarks at Davos:
“I call Agenda 2030 our ‘declaration of interdependence.’ The world is coming to recognize more and more that problems in one country reverberate in another. A crash in one market can drive a crisis around the world. That is why it is so important to make the most of our collective strengths. We will need to work together – across sectors and industries – to address how to realize new approaches to finance, investment, trade and technology. We have seen many examples at the United Nations of how leveraging joint resources and expertise can quickly and effectively uncover solutions. I hope to forge even more and stronger partnerships that have a real impact on people’s lives.”
Through the efforts of OICT, the UN aims to support the analysis of the Sustainable Development Goals by presenting indicators from the massive amounts of data available to them to identify and track improvements to barriers to population well-being.
“The power of what we do is not about the data, it is what data does for people,” said Lars Björk, CEO at Qlik. “It’s exciting to see the UN’s vision for not just how they can leverage all of their data best, but how they can make some of that data available to citizens of the world for their own understanding. I’m proud that Qlik is helping to unlock data-driven possibilities for the UN, and that together we can use data to change outcomes for governments, regions, and people in need.”
