Qlik announced an enhanced Qlik Partner Program (QPP) and details on the first-ever dedicated BI market. The QPP has evolved in multiple areas to make it easier to engage with Qlik, find seamless alignment with Qlik’s overall go-to-market strategy, and increase partner revenue through new pricing structures that drive growth for partner ecosystems.
The Qlik Partner Program, based on a globally-consistent three-tier program framework (Elite, Select and Authorized), is moving to a more value-based model that includes clear business benefits and requirements per tier. Partners have the ability to access tier based benefits and are rewarded for identifying and helping close new Qlik opportunities via deal registration.
The key highlight of the 2018 QPP enhancements is the launch of the Managed Service Provider (MSP) offering, the first of its kind in the BI market. Strategic use of data will determine market leaders in the analytics economy. MSPs have an opportunity to help customers through digital transformations by not only more effectively acquiring, managing and maintaining data, but also analyzing it to create new services and revenue sources. Qlik’s MSP offering empowers partners to help customers make better business decisions, fundamentally transforming a customer’s ability to innovate and compete while fortifying MSP customer loyalty and revenue.
