“Manufacturing environments today are extremely detailed, with global models encompassing many distinct enterprise solutions and pulling in data from disparate sources and storing them as either structured or unstructured data”

With more than 200 business users using over 90 QlikView applications, LARSON has improved visibility into product quality and supply chain effectiveness plus decreased cost and time of reporting. In addition, Frost & Sullivan named the QlikView Business Discovery platform as the Emerging Analytics Player of the Year in Le Meridien, Delhi, honoring the outstanding achievements of QlikTech’s domestic market strategy and marketing and sales initiatives.

Anyone within the business, as well as suppliers and distributors, can use QlikView with applications customized to each user’s needs. Through QlikView’s powerful information analysis, more than 2,000 manufacturing customers such as Amcor, Mitsubishi Electric, Sandvik, Panasonic Home Appliances Company, Toshiba Europe, and Weir Services now have an integrated view of information to improve performance across their organizations.
“Manufacturing environments today are extremely detailed, with global models encompassing many distinct enterprise solutions and pulling in data from disparate sources and storing them as either structured or unstructured data,” said Muthuraman Ramasamy, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “QlikView’s ability to recognize the complexity of the data, the volume, and the solution into which it is plugged in order to make overarching insights demonstrates its unmatched capabilities, thus ensuring that it is uniquely differentiated from its competitors. We firmly believe that QlikView can help the growing number of manufacturers that are extending the implementation and utilization of analytics in order to enable faster and more profitable decisions in a highly competitive and complex environment.”
“Putting the information in the hands of the people on the front line – those planning and managing production, buying materials, planning supply and demand, managing quality, inventory, waste or compliance – is key to enforcing a culture of fact-based decision-making in manufacturing industries,” said David Telford, Senior Director of Global Manufacturing & High Tech at QlikTech. “QlikView’s differentiation is its ability to deliver the simplicity users need to interact with data and generate new insights which impact profitability, risk and customer satisfaction, and loyalty. Receiving this recognition from Frost & Sullivan is a testament to the thousands of manufacturers globally that have turned to QlikView to overcome their information challenges.”
