Growth Drivers

The company’s large installed base of enterprise customers represents “prime up-sell candidates” for its new Qlik Sense visualization tool and analytics platform products.

“We view Qlik’s free downloadable version of Qlik Sense as a disruptive force in the BI marketplace impacting other vendors,” Hindlian wrote. She added that the $20/month Qlik Sense Cloud product can compete directly with the existing low cost BI products offered by, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT).

The company’s FY16 performance is expected to be driven by new products, new custom or analytics platform, improving forex headwinds and reasonable valuation, Hindlian stated.
