BI Industry Action: Qlik Buys Blendr.io and TIBCO buys ibi
CDPs like ActionIQ share some turf with general purpose business intelligence engines. Glancing into that neighborhood, we see that Qlik just bought Blendr.io, an integration platform that will ease connections with 500+ of SaaS applications and cloud-based data sources. Also, TIBCO bought ibi, formerly Information Builders, Inc., which has offered a low-code development platform since the 1970s – well before low-code was cool. If you don’t know what a 4GL is, ask your grandmother.
