Metrix Software Solutions has won the QlikView OEM Partner of the Year award at the QlikView Partner Channel Awards Dinner on Wednesday night. The event was hosted by one of Johannesburg’s top hotels in the heart of Sandton’s business district. This is the second consecutive year that Metrix has been honoured with this award.
Metrix’s core product, IsoMetrix, has QlikView dashboards embedded in its solution via the global OEM agreement with QlikTech. This enables Metrix to utilise the power of QlikView to drive the Dashboards that transform the applications underlying data into front-end analytics that merge the gap between information and intelligence.
Rigby Stott, an Executive Head at Metrix Software Solutions, was present at the ceremony to receive the award. Stott said, “It is an honour to receive this award once again. QlikView is an essential part of our value proposition and it is hard to imagine our product being where it is today without the QlikView OEM. We have a great relationship with QlikView South Africa and the partnership works well for both sides. We issued more than 1950 QlikView licenses during the adjudication period which is a growth of 28% on the previous year.”
Stott went on to say, “The majority of our sales went to new names but we are also seeing an increase in our user base with our existing customers who are extending their solutions to other areas of Governance, Risk and Compliance. This talks directly to the fact that businesses are taking aunified look at GRC and electing for a single solution servicing multiple departments in an integrated way. Of course the QlikView dashboards are perfect to give the business an aggregated view of all their analytics across the organisation.”
Metrix Software Solutions and QlikView signed their OEM agreement in 2011.
