Qlik Commits Data Visualization Software Supporting the Implementation of SDG 14
by Qlik (Private sector)
Qlik, the data intelligence firm and visualization software company, commits to creating a collaborative initiative that unites big data, GIS, real-time information, localized reportage and monitoring, and public engagement through social media to help inform and impact important decisions supoorting SDG 14 such as allocation, policy changes, pricing, crisis response and infrastructure changes and improvements.

To do so, Qlik will provide data dashboards driven by Qlik Sense, a public deployment infrastructure leveraging the Qlik Cloud, and large scale data management, acquisition, and sharing capabilities through Qlik DataMarket; Qlik will support partners including Blue Guardians and SIDS DOCK with data visualization efforts towards the effective measurement and monitoring of their efforts.

To message the findings of this commitment, Qlik will leverage the support from Twitter to compel the global public to Tweet information regarding the progress towards SDG 14. This layer of bi-directional, interactive public participation will be added in real-time to the other data in the dashboards.

This multi-partner commitment will launch with a pilot data display of relevant data for selected member states. The commitment will expand its scope to all partner member states, providing a visual, trusted, cumulative, and collaborative resource for decision makers, researchers, media, and the public.
