Data discovery provider Qlik has acquired Vizubi, developer of the NPrinting reporting add-on for QlikView.
The partly-renamed QlikView NPrinting add-on provides drag-and-drop report creation from QlikView. Supported output formats include Microsoft Office, PixelPerfect and HTML.

Together, the products allow the use of QlikView for guided analytics and reporting. According to the company. this enables significant cost savings through the retirement of now-redundant BI systems.

“Vizubi and its NPrinting products fit squarely in our acquisition strategy as tuck-in a technology that enhances the value of Qlik solutions to our customers,” said Qlik chief technology officer Anthony Deighton.

“We believe in the power of interactive reporting and know that to get people engaged with Qlik, they need exposure to the power of discovery.
An NPrinting report may just be some users’ first encounter with the power of visual analytics at the point of decision making.”

Analog Devices director of R&D productivity Ken Hartman, a QlikView and NPrinting customer, said “I have gained the best of both worlds with an unmatched level of interactive analytics and control in the creation and the sharing of business users reports.”

“NPrinting adds real value to the QlikView solution by exposing its outputs for discovery to a broader audience, boosting adoption and collaboration and promoting operational effectiveness,” he added.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
