IQBlade was founded in June 2016 by Antony Young and Ben Abraham, two tech channel veterans. They recognised that a data-led approach to channel development was essential as new players and new routes to markets emerged and matured rapidly.

Originally focused on partner analysis, the IQBlade platform expanded to include analysis of any UK company, with many new sources of data and functionality added.

IQBlade was acquired by leading global technology distributor Tech Data in October 2019.

Tech Data has continued to make significant investments, enabling us to expand our coverage and services beyond the UK.

We are still based in Liverpool, a thriving academic and creative city, but the team now includes Data Scientists, Software Engineers, Customer Success Specialists and Marketing experts who are capable of delivering multilingual, data-led, digital marketing services throughout Europe.

Antony and Ben are still with the business and continue to be passionate about the tech sector ecosystem and driving new innovations to help it grow.

To stay at the forefront of Data Analytics and Machine Learning innovations, IQBlade has developed outstanding partnerships with some of the UK’s leading Universities. We work with Academic Staff and PhD Students to undertake Research and Design projects and ensure that IQBlade continues to deliver great value and insight to Clients.
