Q&A for Qlik partners

What is qlikmap.org about?

Qlikmap.org is an initiative of BARC (see “who is BARC?”) and officially supported by Qlik as a vendor. The goal is to give customers and partners a broader view of the ecosystem around the Qlik products and help connect customers, add-on vendors and service partners. See “how to participate” to find out how you can leverage qlikmap for your offerings. Your entry is free of charge!

What are the main parts of qlikmap.org?

We focus on the following main elements:
  • The Solution Browser is an interactive guide to add-ons, dashboard templates, applications and all other pieces of software that add value to a customer’s Qlik installation. There is no prerequisite for being listed, and solutions new to the market are welcome. If you add your profile (see next point), it will take 2-3 days until your solution will appear on the public site due to quality checks.
  • The popular “Blog Portfolio” provides a guide to blogs and Youtube channels around the Qlik offering – the prerequisite is a blog with at least 6 articles/videos in the last 12 months with value for Qlik users (not company blogs with information only about the company’s products and services). Find more detail in the article “About the Blog Portfolio”
  • The “Service Partner Browser” shows consultancies and implementation partners with skillset in one or more Qlik products. It adds value to existing partner directories with its innovative search functionalities like e.g. search for a partner in a required language or with skills in add-on technologies.
  • The static “Qlikmap” (a PDF with links to vendors and consultancies) showing the most important vendors and service partners for the Qlik ecosystem. This map is compiled by BARC analysts, information from Qlik partner management and market research. A basic entry in Qlikmap is not required, but helpful for visibility. The picture shows the structure of the map, which is planned to be released October 21:

How can I participate?

If you have not done so yet, please fill out the questionnaire for Qlik partners. It takes a couple of minutes to set up your partner profile, then you can add your solutions for the Qlik ecosystem. It will take 2-3 days until your entry is visible.


Who is BARC?

BARC, headquartered in Germany, is the leading European analyst for Data & Analytics, well known for its “BI & Analytics Survey” (formerly “the OLAP report”) and their market research in BI, Data Warehouse, Reporting and AI. 

What does it cost to participate?

Nothing, it is completely free. Also visitors have no need to register to access the data of qlikmap.org. We want to keep the entry barrier as low as possible. If you want you can become a sponsor of qlikmap.org to gain additional visibility in the market.

Can I add things later?

Yes, please keep your credentials. You can edit your profile, add, edit or delete your add-on solutions any time later. Qlikmap.org will be updated frequently.

What is important to create interest with Qlikmap.org?

We strongly recommend to add a good YouTube video for your solution which shows the benefit in 2-3 minutes. This will help a lot to gain interest. The videos are available to play directly in the solution browser.

The data you provide will not be sold to or shared with any third party, except the marketing information which has the goal of increasing your visibility. The servers on which the data is stored are based in Europe. BARC GmbH – established in 1999 and headquartered in Germany – follows the strong European data privacy regulations.
