Qlik works best when all your data is in a single, high performance relational database. But if you're like most companies, your data is spread across many systems, some relational, but increasingly non-relational systems too.
Hadoop HDFS and S3 store huge volumes of structured and unstructured data in a range of different formats. And these systems have no limited abilities to process queries quickly. As a result, you need to copy the data into a relational database to deliver the interactive experience your Qlik users expect.
Newer technologies like MongoDB and Elasticsearch manage data in JSON documents. These are rich data structures that limit what Qlik does best. In addition, operational systems tend to perform poorly for analytical workloads, which can negatively impact their ability to meet demanding SLAs of the business.
You could build a data warehouse, but these projects take many months to complete, are expensive, and complex to maintain. Data staging, ETL, data marts, cubes. It's a massive undertaking.

Dremio takes the queries from your favorite BI tools and rewrites them, using the query language of the data source.
