Qlik has acquired CrunchBot – an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered analytics bot that will expand the company’s current augmented intelligence and cognitive capabilities by bringing additional conversational analytics through the Qlik’s platform and open application program interfaces (APIs).
In addition, Qlik has acquired the experienced AI team and solution development professionals of Crunch Data Inc.
With this acquisition, the users will be able to interact with and understand their data leveraging the natural language via Qlik Sense and within key collaboration tools like Skype, Slack, Salesforce Chat and Microsoft Teams.
Benefits to users
Commenting on the development, Mike Capone, CEO, Qlik, said, “Bringing CrunchBot and Crunch Data into Qlik will help users more easily inject data regularly into workflows, making analytics an essential element in daily collaboration and decision making.”
“Qlik continually looks for new ways to deliver augmented intelligence to users and improve data literacy. These acquisitions help expand the ability of our customers and partners to leverage data and insights where work happens, increasing the value of both data and the organisation,” Capone said.
Nish Patel, CEO, CrunchBot and Co-Founder, Crunch Data, said, “Qlik is the analytics leader in bringing augmented intelligence and machine learning (ML) to enterprise users. We’re thrilled to become part of the advanced capabilities that Qlik continues to bring to market, helping enterprise customers realise the bottom-line value of making it easier for their employees to converse with data.”
To expand Qlik’s capabilities
The customers of Qlik already get benefit from the augmented intelligence and natural language search capabilities within Qlik, and CrunchBot extends and expands these capabilities by way of a conversational and natural language interface.
CrunchBot is available immediately to the customers through Qlik and will be certified as a value-added solution to Qlik Sense platform. The new product will be named the Qlik Insight Bot and available alongside the existing Insight Advisor capability of Qlik.
