What Makes QlikTech So Good?

Customer Experience Matrix

To carry on a bit with yesterday’s topic— QlikTech fascinates me on two levels: first, because it is such a powerful technology, and second because it’s a real-time case study in how a superior technology penetrates an established market. The general topic of diffusion of innovation has always intrigued me, and it would be fun to map QlikView against the usual models (hype curve, chasm crossing, tipping point, etc.) in a future post. Perhaps I shall. But I think it’s important to first explain exactly just what makes QlikView so good. What they barely do is discuss the technology itself.
