Every customer goes through a unique journey when it comes to analytics but one thing remains a constant. Every company wants to know more: whether it’s why sales numbers went down last quarter or why that one pallet got delivered late last month. Sometimes companies aren’t sure what they need to know and seeing all of the company data is what it takes to set their minds free.

But if you are at the very beginning of your journey it can be tough to know where to start without other examples to guide you. That’s what the Qlik Virtual User Group is designed for and here are three of the stories you can expect to hear more about:

Raymond James Financial

  • Goal in selecting Qlik was to provide a dashboard for every level of management
  • First complex dashboard was built to measure productivity across all Operations areas
    • This covered historical trending analysis for 14 different departments: no small feat

Raymond James Dashboard

We’ve only captured a small piece of each of these stories in the sections above but there is a lot more that can be gleaned by listening to our three guest speakers during the Virtual User Group:

  1. Laura Ashworth, Process Improvement Consultant - Reporting & Analytics, Raymond James
  2. Micah Sakata, Systems Data Architect, Textron Systems
  3. Saket Mishra, Manager EAS, Varian Medical Systems

If you aren’t quite sure where to start in your analytical journey – this should be the place for you!
