Qlik, a leader in visual analytics, today announced it has acquired the Swedish company Idevio, a provider of geographical-related software and services.
This acquisition extends Qlik’s current mapping capabilities, and enables support for a broad range of advanced geoanalytic use cases. In apps where businesses need comprehensive geospatial information, Idevio enables Qlik Sense and QlikView users to add maps to their apps with automatic geo-data lookup.
Users can also use Idevio’s GeoAnalytics cloud-based service to analyze geo-data in combination with non-geo data for use cases such as determining potential store locations, understanding customer distribution of sales by zip code, or calculating supply chain delivery times.
"Emerging technology such as The Internet of Things is – and will – produce an enormous amount of location-referenced data. Even as it gains a stronger foothold within our customer base, there is still a challenge to extract and use all that location-based data," said Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products.
"We want to be that partner that helps them analyze their geospatial data, and Idevio fits perfectly within our product portfolio. We are acquiring complementary technology that will enhance the value we provide to our customers as we further develop and bring to market these solutions."
