QlikTech’s partners will now have a new standard in business intelligence (BI) to aim for following the introduction of a new certification program
The QlikView 11 Certification Program is designed to measure the knowledge and skills of QlikView partners, with the aim of recognising the understanding and capabilities that individuals have with QlikView’s Business Discovery platform.
According to QlikTech A/NZ regional director, Mark Sands, the QlikView 11 Certification Program will help its partners by providing them with the validation “required to deliver customer success.”
“Our partners are not just selling QlikView as a solution but building an entire business platform,” he said.
“We value that level of expertise and want to provide those partners a chance to differentiate themselves and their expertise to our customers.”
The certification program consists of three categories, QlikView Certified Designer, QlikView Certified Developer, and QlikView Certified System Administrator, and requires that individuals pass one or multiple assessments to gain the required certification.
Before the software vendor launched the QlikView 11 Certification Program, Sands said that it underwent rigorous testing by nearly 900 participants worldwide.
“This was to ensure that the certification program is not only scalable, but also widely anticipated within our partner community,” he said.
To help the QlikView 11 Certification Program reach as many partners as possible in a timely manner, Sands said that QlikTech will be partnering with computer education outfit, Pearson VUE, for expanded delivery and reach.
The QlikView 11 Certification Program is available to members of the Qonnect Partner Program.
