RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 16, 2014--QlikR, (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, opened the doors on its worldwide Visualize Your World roadshow events, which will be taking place in 20 cities worldwide. The events, which are expected to attract more than 8,000 visitors across APAC and EMEA, will be challenging conventions to help attendees better understand the importance of empowering everyone across a business with visual, intuitive data analysis to uncover meaningful insights.
The Visualize Your World events will take place over the next two months in cities such as London, Sydney, Hong Kong, Milan, and Tokyo will involve a series of keynotes as well as breakout and best practice sessions with Qlik experts and partners. Partners joining in the different events around the world include: CapGemini, Deloitte, Differentia, Teradata, Accenture Digital, and Alteryx. The events will also feature talks from local Qlik customers, such as HSBC, LUSH, British Gas, Formica, Mahindra & Mahindra, Swedbank, Siemens, SNCF, Mondi, Kaufman & Broad, Compass Group Spain, and Photobox, all of which will give real-world examples of how they have used data analysis to better the operations of their organizations.
All events will kick off with a Qlik keynote, which will set the scene for the day ?V looking at information as the life blood of organizations and how its flow and usage can dictate how well they can compete and perform. All sessions at Visualize Your World events worldwide will look at the way BI and analytics are currently being used, encouraging organizations to be more open to innovation and defying conventions to actually get the most from their data. Delegates can keep an eye on the proceedings over the next couple of months by following #VizYourWorld on Twitter.
The Visualize Your World events come hot on the heels of the company recently launching QlikR Sense, which has been designed to help anyone within an organization create dynamic dashboards to explore their data and uncover insights that can have a real impact on the day to day operations of the business. Qlik Sense has been designed with the notion that every knowledge worker, from any device, can rapidly create visually rich analytics to explore theories, prove hypothesis, or discover new trends that can change the trajectory of their business ?V and this theme will be resonating throughout the Visualize Your World events.
On the theme of Visualize Your World, Donald Farmer, VP, Innovation and Design at Qlik, who will be giving the keynote at a number of events, commented, "We're challenging conventional wisdom, which is so often wrong and can hold us back from progress and innovation. People think that more reports, faster systems, more visualization will solve all their problems. But in fact, unless you can explore and learn again and again across your entire business, you will just end up repeating the same mistakes. Qlik Sense enables every user to bring their own skills and insights to business problems and to share the stories of what they discover in a highly scalable and manageable way ?V and that's what we want the Visualize Your World events around the globe to showcase."
