Vizlib Acquires Climber Extensions

Sponsored by Businesswire

Vizlib, the data visualisation library for Qlik Sense, has today
announced the acquisition of Climber Extensions. Providing a range of
complementary extensions for Qlik Sense, the spin-off of Climber AB will
support Vizlib’s vision of making data talk.

Widely known for the Custom Report and the Finance Report extensions for
Qlik Sense, Climber Extensions is one of the leading providers in the
Qlik ecosystem and part of Qlik’s Trusted Extensions Developer (TED)
program. With a strong product portfolio and a global customer audience,
the acquisition of Climber Extensions strengthens Vizlib’s position in
the self-service analytics market. The move will also accelerate the
development of the Vizlib Collaboration™ product by offering customers
in-app commentary, write-back and chatting possibilities. Vizlib expects
the acquisition to aid their mission in helping customers drive the
adoption of data analytics across organisations.

“The decision to acquire Climber Extensions underlines Vizlib’s focus on
delivering best-in-class solutions for our customers,” explains Martin
Mahler, Vizlib’s CEO. “We are building on our longstanding relationship
with Climber Extensions, a team that succeeded in developing intuitive,
high-quality products in a short period of time. We will now be able to
leverage a team of 28 people to explore new ways of streamlining our
customers’ data analytics journey. This is an exciting time for us as we
embark on a new growth path.”

Until a planned relaunch of Vizlib’s website, Climber Extensions will be
offered as two extensions packages – Climber Self-Service™ & Climber
Finance™ – complementing Vizlib’s own Vizlib Library™. Through a unique
one-stop shopping experience, customers will be able to subscribe to
either product via a unified subscription, benefiting from a joint
support experience and a single vendor relationship.

“Being part of Vizlib will raise the game for Climber Extensions. They
are a perfect match for us with their digital customer platform and a
worldwide partner network,” says Michael Nordström, Climber Extensions
CTO. “The effects of teaming up with Vizlib’s skilled developers can
already be seen. We push and challenge each other, so the merge will
lead to an even faster development of both new and existing extensions.
Now, we are adding more exciting features to the Finance Report and
Custom Report and are thrilled to share the results at Qlik’s global
conference, Qonnections 2019, in May.”

The financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
