Qlik announces acquirement of CrunchBot AI-powered analytics bot along with Crunch Data Inc.’s experienced team of AI and solution development professionals enabling users to interact and understand their data using natural language through Qlik Sense and within leading collaboration tools such as Slack, Skype, Salesforce Chat and Microsoft Teams. With AI-powered natural language bot and specialist services helping drive analytics adoption, customer success and data literacy, Qlik’s existing augmented intelligence and natural language cognitive capabilities have expanded and deliver additional conversational analytics by leveraging Qlik’s platform and open APIs.
Mike Capone, CEO, Qlik asserts, “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. 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 organization”.
As per Gartner reports, 50 percent of analytical queries will be generated via search, NLP, voice or automatically. CrunchBot works uniquely with Qlik, bridging the gap between visual discovery and conversational analytics. As a Trusted Extension Developer (TED) accredited solution, CrunchBot enables users to see increased analytics adoption and user data literacy with a faster and easier way to ask questions, generate insights, and make data-driven decisions.
Additionally, CrunchBot offers the best of both worlds by allowing users to enter an experience conversationally and then transition to visual exploration for deeper understanding and discovery. The Crunch Data team is a mix of offshore development and US-based AI professionals and has strong track record of successful project engagements with brands like Century Link and Hortonworks.
“Qlik is the analytics leader in bringing augmented intelligence and machine learning to enterprise users. We’re thrilled to become part of the advanced capabilities that Qlik continues to bring to market, helping enterprise customers realize the bottom-line value of making it easier for their employees to converse with data,” adds Nish Patel, CEO, CrunchBot & Co-Founder, Crunch Data.
CrunchBot is immediately available to customers through Qlik and will be licensed as a value-added solution to Qlik Sense platform. To be named as Qlik Insight Bot, the product will be available alongside Qlik’s existing Insight Advisor capability and will be further integrated with Qlik cognitive engine to deliver more value to customers.
