Certified QlikView customers demonstrate high technical competency, helping their teams to achieve greater productivity and outcomes

In an effort to help its customers demonstrate their level of expertise in the growing market for Business Discovery, QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI) – has announced it is extending its QlikView 11 Certification Programme.  The QlikView 11 Certification Programme for customers expands QlikTech’s previously announced Certification Programme for partners.  The QlikView 11 Certification Programme, now available to customers and members of the Qonnect Partner Programme, validates the knowledge and skills of QlikView users and provides a quantitative way to confirm their understanding and capabilities with the QlikView Business Discovery platform.

“QlikTech partners and customers are well positioned to benefit from the incredible growth opportunity in Business Discovery,” said Kim Peretti, vice president of global education services at QlikTech.  “Certified individuals have demonstrated high levels of technical excellence and productivity, which enhances their credentials. Organisations with certified professionals on their team are better positioned to achieve improved project deployments, overall IT efficiency and greater returns on their QlikView investments.”

The QlikView 11 Certification Programme, which is comprised of three offerings – QlikView Certified Designer, QlikView Certified Developer, and QlikView Certified System Administrator – requires a combination of recommended classroom sessions and practical, hands-on project experience.  Each exam allows QlikTech to measure the product knowledge and skills acquired by customers and enables customers to benchmark their skills against an established level of competency.

To expand the delivery and reach of the QlikView 11 Certification Programme, QlikTech has entered into an agreement with Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer-based testing services for academic admissions, certification and licensure programmes. QlikView Designer and QlikView Developer Certification Exams are now available in eight languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, English, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
