Featured Blog – HIC’s Blog

Every now and again we add new blogs to our site, but not often are we as excited about a new blog as we are about this one. Read on to find out why.

There are very few people in the Qlik ecosystem who are well recognized and respected as Henric Ivar Cronström. You probably know him as HIC, and will have no doubt seen him on Qlik Community, be aware of his contributions to the Qlik Design Blog and his willingness to jump in to help on various topics. He is also a regular at in-person events and I have been lucky to meet, and share a beer, with him at various events. From one of the first Masters Summits, a memorable Qlik Dev Group through to the epic Qlik Luminary events held in the birthplace of Qlik (and HIC’s old univeristy town) Lund.

In 1994, HIC was one of the first people to join the newly formed company, QuikTech. Nearly three decades later he has departed Qlik, a vastly different company with a product suite that could not even have been conceived of in the 90’s. At the very core of the current product though, is the associative engine that was the key to the very first version of QuikView, all those years ago.

However, what is great news for the Qlik ecosystem is that whilst HIC has left Qlik he is staying with the product. He now has on his LinkedIn Profile that he is an Independent QlikView and Qlik Sense Consultant. So, if you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire…

As I write this article HIC’s blog is one post old, and it’s a belter; with a technique that I have not used in practice before (but will be looking for an excuse to now). Future blog posts will appear below, be part of our main blog feed and also be tweeted on the AskQV Twitter feed.

So, all that remains is for me to thank HIC for all that he has done for the Qlik product set and all of us that are fortunate enough to use it.
