Health insurance company, HCF, initially implemented QlikView to create a monthly report for its chief executive.
According to business intelligence analyst, Ricky Yeung, speed and ease-of-use have been the standout benefits.
“In-memory is much faster — it is much quicker when you are readying data from the data sources,” Yeung said.
HCF’s service delivery manager, Wayne Miller, said the initial project caught the attention of the business intelligence group who were looking for a way to present live sales transactions.
“When they had a look at the capabilities and the different kinds of graphs and formatting, they also found it quite easy to use,” Miller says. “We’ve identified some further reporting and a potential roll out to branch managers, which we are working on at the moment.”
