King of Prussia-based Qlik has acquired London-based RoxAI and its Ping intelligent alerting software.

Ping’s self-service intelligent alerts, integrated with Qlik’s analytics platform, can immediately notify users through mobile, email and social channels of material changes in their data and the context.

In the future Qlik plans to integrate Ping with workflow and robotic process automation (RPA) solutions through APIs that will further accelerate business value of customer data. Further, enhancements are planned to include the capability for “proximity-based alerts”, where, for example, an online shopping vendor can automatically alert a regional manager with performance insights when they arrive at a store location.
