Qlik is an industry leader in the business intelligence market, revolutionizing user-driven business intelligence that Gartner has coined as “data-discovery.” Qlik’s platform is focused on the power of the user, transforming user data into understanding and inspiration to make empowered and informed decisions. Current industry business intelligence applications need to move beyond the mere “what” and “why” of what has already happened and answer the questions of what could come next. Qlik’s scalable applications lead today’s data discovery.
Data Is Everywhere
Every two days we create as much information as we did ranging from the beginning of time until 2003. The total amount of data being captured and stored by industries doubles every 1.2 years! Big data isn’t a trend, and it’s certainly not going anywhere. But how are you supposed to manage the ever-growing collection of data, before it goes stale in data silos, and actually understand what it’s telling you?
Qlik elevated their Business Intelligence by capturing and channeling the power of human intelligence. They have been on the scene for +20 years and continue to innovate every step of the way. Business Intelligence and Data Discovery applications decode new data streams and translate it into usable information. While perhaps not a new phenomenon, manually maintained spreadsheets for basic analysis have fallen into the past and the ability to obtain relevant results faster, and through user-friendly platforms has become the staple of business. You cannot continue with archaic practices and expect your organization to thrive in a new era of technical application. Data Discovery and self-service data visualization keeps you in the competition.
People Make Decisions
According to Forbes, for a typical Fortune 1000 company, just a 10% increase in data accessibility will result in more than $65 million in additional net income. Data is exploding, but it is still just a source… It isn’t machines and data silos who make decisions, it’s people. It takes a useable platform to make data accessible but it is people who have to grasp what the data is revealing to them. What happened, why did it happen, and what is most likely to happen next?
The tools and software applications that make up analytics platforms bring speed and efficiency that means immediate decisions – not reactions. While there is no one master key to unlocking the truth, Qlik’s various applications work together as a management program with their analytics platform. Data management, data and text mining, predictive analytics and more, compiled for a personalized data visualization application.
Qlik wants you to see the whole story that lies within your data. Their applications offer security and governance, in-memory analytics, and reporting solutions that anyone – with any level of tech savvy – can deliver the necessary information for the best decisions. They take pride in delivering the only complete Data Discovery solution in the market.
Business Moves Fast
How often do you have the luxury of waiting a few months, few weeks, or even a matter of days to make an important decision? Where the time to build a single traditional Business Intelligence report averages six weeks, 42% of business professionals need to make data-driven decisions within one day. Qlik sets itself apart not only by executing a more complex analysis that confirms facts missed by other tools, but with its speed, dexterity, and responsiveness to get faster ROI for its customers. Rather than having to incorporate many costly systems for basic functionality, they have built one platform that maintains the full range of BI and Analytics; it allows you to answer the “what’s” and “why’s” regardless of technical prowess, and regardless of location.
With the Qlik Platform, data governance and flexibility are not opposing ideas, but go hand in hand. The platform is highly customizable and adapts to security rules, while still permitting business users to add input and share analysis findings with their teams. Additionally, the Qlik Management Console and APIs are accompanied by integrated Storytelling competences that links raw data together to form valuable intelligence.
Rather than delving through multiple subjective data reports, “Qlik allows you to put a highlighter on your data and really see where the outliers are… [it] provides one version of the truth.”
