Due to the "Qlik & Swiss BI Cloud" dream team, Informatec is the only Swiss partner to join Qlik's MSP pilot programme. Qlik users can now order "Qlik Sense Enterprise in the Cloud" directly from Informatec as a fully managed BI solution.
The new MSP programme was announced by Qlik during the global Qonnections Partner Conference in April 2017. The pilot programme was launched in September and will be available to all end clients from January 2018. Qlik only selects partners who have 360-degree Cloud services as managed services providers (MSP) – for example, those who have Qlik software together with an optimally matched Cloud infrastructure and fully managed services.
On the basis of their many years of experience in the Qlik environment and thanks to their Swiss BI Cloud and iVIEW-based BI services, Qlik admitted Informatec to the exclusive circle of Qlik managed service providers. A select group of 37 partners were chosen worldwide (18 from the EMEA area, 11 from AMER and 8 from APAC). Of these, only three partners were selected from the D-A-CH region and Informatec was the only partner chosen in Switzerland.
The MSP programme is an important milestone for both Qlik clients and business intelligence users in general. The focus is on the realisation that Cloud business is playing an increasingly important role on the BI scene. According to Gartner studies, the total addressable market (TAM) for 2018 is $18 billion, 20% of which will be generated in the Cloud.
This trend meets client needs for scalable, flexible and secure operating environments where BI users really only need to focus on the results of their dashboard. Informatec expresses this central benefit in a nutshell: "Qlik managed services in the Swiss cloud BI: your headache relief".
As a managed services provider, Informatec takes care of the complete BI infrastructure and all the corresponding services:
The MSP partners provide a completely worry-free, comprehensive package that includes hosting in the Cloud, installation of Qlik software, licensing, invoicing on a monthly or annual basis, a client apps service and everything else, right down to first level support.
For companies that choose Qlik as their enterprise solution, the MSP programme offers clear advantages:
For Informatec, Qlik's MSP programme is the concretisation of their Cloud capabilities, which they initiated in 2016 with their "Swiss BI Cloud" service. These include the following models:
Of course, the Swiss BI Cloud also hosts self-service BI applications based on Informatec's iVIEW.
Swiss BI Cloud Qlik Managed Services
In the current pilot phase, Qlik Sense Enterprise is now available in the Cloud with managed services. Users simply have to select the appropriate Cloud package and define the desired number of users.
Additional Qlik products will be available as part of the MSP programme from 2018. Informatec already offers all Qlik products in the Swiss BI Cloud on the basis of a “perpetual” licensing model (hosting in the Cloud with fully managed services plus purchased Qlik license plus BI support package).
