    RADNOR, PA, Nov. 29 /CNW/ - QlikTech, named by IDC as the world's fastest
growing Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced it has been

    Technology Pioneers are companies that have been identified as developing
and applying highly transformational and innovative technologies in the areas
of energy, biotechnology and health, and information technology. To be
selected as a Technology Pioneer, a company must be involved in the
development of life-changing technology innovation and have the potential for
long-term impact on business and society. In addition, it must demonstrate
visionary leadership, show all the signs of being a long-standing market
leader - and its technology must be proven.
