QlikTech Bolsters Advanced Visualization
With Acquisition of NComVA
Extends Interactive Visualization Capabilities as Entry to Business Discovery

associative data discovery of QlikView, QlikTechs user-driven business intelligence platform. This acquisition expands QlikTechs expertise
and capabilities in advanced visualization and analysis to pair with its associative approach to delivering a deeper understanding of data,
especially when multiple data sources are analyzed together.
Critical to QlikViews success is that it is both gorgeous and genius, said Anthony Deighton, Chief Technology Officer. We call the
visualizations gorgeous and the associations genius, and you would not want to have one aspect without the other. NComVAs technology and
its people will help broaden our advances in visualization, especially when linked with the real power of business discovery, which is the
ability to associate and analyze data without restrictions. Its the freedom to ask additional questions and see new relationships revealed
through visuals and associations combined.

showing multivariate data through table lens, radar plot, scatter matrix, parallel coordinate, tree map and fish eye bars. Innovative capabilities
include interactive time animation which allows users to see how changes in data relate to each other and the passing of time. Sophisticated
applications of color legends and advanced filtering mechanisms can further help users scan for relationships and detect outliers. QlikTech also
plans to leverage NComVAs mapping technology with dedicated geo-spatial chart types and its data storytelling functionality that fits into
QlikViews collaboration feature set.
