We’re happy to announce the new group of BI leaders and industry visionaries who make up the Qlik Luminary Class of 2017. Join us in welcoming them to #TeamQlik!
For the 4th consecutive year, we’re awarding the Luminary accreditation to the brightest shining individuals in the Qlik ecosystem. Some of them are brand new to the program; a few are embarking on their fourth year as a Luminary. A couple of them are BI thought leaders; others are recognized industry visionaries, business leaders, or masterful developers. But what they all have in common is a passion for innovating with Qlik and sharing their expertise with others in a global arena.
Not only are we rolling out the green carpet for these Luminaries at Qonnections – our annual partner and customer conference taking place on May 15-18 in Orlando, FL. We’re also hooking them up with early access to Qlik news, event perks and discounts, free training and product offers, and custom-made Luminary merchandise. They will also have an opportunity to share ideas and feedback with Qlik executives who directly oversee key parts of our product strategy.
But we also want to take a moment and reflect on how much fun the past Luminary year was. For example, we hosted a #LuminaryMeetup at our Swedish office in Lund where Luminaries got to spend a day with the movers and shakers in R&D to share feedback and learn firsthand what’s on the product roadmap. Of course, there was also time for a few selfies down at the local pub!
We could not be more excited to work with this esteemed group of Luminaries in 2017. You can follow all their work and chatter via #QlikLuminary on Twitter or check out some of their social media profiles and blogs listed below.
