Data analytics and business intelligence platform Qlik has acquired Blendr.io, an integration and automation platform (iPaaS).
Blendr.io’s technology will enable Qlik to expand the data integration and data analytics offerings to also include automation to trigger actions and enhance augmented analytics capabilities.
Qlik said it will expand existing Blendr.io iPaaS use cases to include the ability for customers to explore new analytics use cases through timely access to even more analytics-ready relevant data from over 500 SaaS (software-as-a-service) applications.
Blendr.io’s iPaaS solution will expand the ability of Qlik’s platform to help customers more easily and seamlessly integrate data and automate processes across every decision throughout the organisation, said Mike Capone, CEO at Qlik.
Qlik serves over 50,000 customers in more than 100 countries. Blendr.io serves more than 1,500 end user clients through over 100 customer accounts.
With the acceleration to cloud-based SaaS applications, modern data and analytics platforms must enable real-time data access, ingestion, transformation and insight discovery to trigger action at the point of decision.
