QlikTech partners, Differentia Consulting and Informance, sign strategic alliance to deliver QlikView Business Discovery platform, tools and extensions
to joint client base
Strategic alliance will help QlikView customers benefit from broader QlikView Business Discovery Platform skills with combined services capability
London, U.K., 16th April 2013 – Differentia Consulting and Informance announce strategic alliance to deliver greater QlikView Business Discovery capability to their client base:
Differentia Consulting (differentia.co) and Informance (informance.co.uk) have today announced a strategic alliance to provide best in class QlikView delivery and training and ongoing support and managed services, as well as tools and extension-objects, for their combined QlikView clients, (circa 250), primarily UK based as well as clients of other resellers and system integrators. The pooling of capability will ensure that clients obtain world class end to end care as they engage and deploy the QlikView Business Discovery Platform with either organisation.
As QlikView Business Discovery adoption becomes more widespread, the depth and breadth of skills required to deliver the platform has to increase, and requires ever increasing commitment by partners to service their clients to derive real value. Given these demands on resource, it makes sense to form such an alliance to ensure the adoption of both a common methodology and also the ability to offer the specialist services.
This joint capability will allow the adoption of a common deployment and support methodology, ensuring consistency of approach. Further, QlikView third party products, tools and extensions, will be able to be supported centrally providing clients with even greater levels of knowledge than currently exists.
â€œWe are delighted to create this alliance to increase delivery capability to our clients and scope of offerings. Our two organisations are already working together on projects and this announcement makes this public. The combined companies can deliver more value across more platform components, and sooner, for our clients than would otherwise be possible,â€ said Barry Talbot, Director, Informance.
â€œInformance are a natural fit to form an alliance with. Both companies have similar cultures and backgrounds and thus pooling skill sets makes sense. The added bandwidth will help us plan and provide continued world class service to our collective clients,â€ commented Adrian Parker, Director, Differentia Consulting.
As part of the alliance, clients will be assigned a service delivery manager to manage their requirements as they increase their adoption of the QlikView Business Discovery platform with third party tools and extensions. Forming a services based alliance fits with both companies growth strategy and ensures clients are also better looked after with more certified resource being available.
