MariaDB and Qlik Partnership Aids in Data Migration from Legacy Databases

Collaboration between MariaDB Corporation, provider of pluggable, propose-built storage engines for specialized workloads, and Qlik, an enterprise focused on offering real-time data integration and analytics solutions, ushers in efficient data migrations with Qlik’s data integration platform from legacy database architectures to MariaDB’s database solutions. Migration destinations such as MariaDB Enterprise Server, MariaDB Xpand distributed SQL database, or MariaDB SkySQL cloud database service are available for workloads locked in legacy database sources, such as Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server.

“Data is growing for every company and our customers need more efficient and affordable ways of storing and accessing data,” said Jim Sears, vice president of global alliances and channels at MariaDB Corporation. “Qlik Data Integration and MariaDB together help our customers empower their data lifecycles—handling data creation, storage, rapid data migration, application modernization, automated machine learning, and analytics—to transform their business with data-driven decisions.”

The partnership brings a future of high availability, scalability, continuous integration, and replication of synced data, throughout on-premises, hybrid, or cloud environments to data migration. Qlik’s innovations in cloud data integration, change-data-capture (CDC), analytics data pipeline development, and data lineage/cataloging, combined with MariaDB’s modern database innovations, brings developers real-time, purpose-built application generation and analysis. Direct customer benefits of this collaboration include:

  • Increased data usage for ease in monetization and revenue via analytics.
  • Accelerated time to market for developing and modernizing application infrastructure.
  • IT savings due to elimination of legacy database productions.
  • Enhanced operation accessibility on the most recent versions of database products.
  • Ability to leverage replications of data in regards to compliance or migration for increased data availability.

“With Qlik and MariaDB, customers can modernize their costly, legacy databases and data warehouses as they move to the cloud,” said Itamar Ankorion, senior vice president of technology alliances at Qlik. “Qlik can support MariaDB customers that want fully automated, real-time, CDC and data integration with MariaDB database products for a more data-centric and data-driven business. It’s a winning combination.”

The newly formed partnership will be hosting a webinar on September 14, 2022 to further discuss legacy database migration.
