Qlik's Partner Program Recognized as CRN 5-Star Program Award Winner for Third Straight Year

Qlik announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the company a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs, with Qlik achieving this distinction for the third consecutive year.

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each supplier's partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

Qlik aims to be the vendor of choice for business intelligence and analytics partners. With significant enhancements to the Qlik Partner Program (QPP) in 2018, Qlik is clearly aligned with partner go-to-market models, offering solution providers the ability to resell cloud-based offerings while giving managed service providers (MSPs) the ability to set up a cloud environment to support Qlik Sense for multiple customers.

The QPP's 2018 evolution also included additional aspects to help accelerate partner revenue and business opportunities, including:

  • Subscription Licensing Combined with Volume-Based Pricing
  • Simplified Revenue Requirements
  • Lowered Deal Registration / Sales Performance Discount Thresholds
  • New Net New Logo Deal Incentives
  • Streamlined Partnering Structure

Both the Qlik Solution Provider and MSP tracks offer three partner tiers (Authorized, Select and Elite) that are achieved through revenue and enablement requirements that provide clear discounts, performance-based incentives, and eligibility to various marketing benefits. With Qlik's partnership, training and support, partners can gain a true edge over the competition with an industry-leading analytics platform, while reducing costs and delivering an even better service via the cloud.

"With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers," said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. "We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel."

"Customers are looking to partners to deliver larger transformational strategies through the cloud, that turn data into value across their entire business," Chris Moore, SVP Partners and Alliances at Qlik. "Qlik's partner program helps partners engage customers wherever they are in the arc of their cloud and data strategy, making it easy to deliver services that maximize customer's use of data for competitive advantage."

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
