JDR introduced Qlikview as their reporting platform to meet the requirements of various operational reports, KPIs and dashboards for senior management. With the growing business and increasing number/variety of data feeds, the original design using conventional practices in Qlikview reached a point where it was not possible to address the new and richer reporting requirements without substantial effort. In many cases, the output was limited to data dumps and the users resorted to link it with additional data to create their interpretations about the same business events.
The Customer’s existing solution was designed as one monolithic solution. The introduced changes made it too brittle and complex to meet the business expectations. Different departments created their own version of same information which resulted in confusion. The “single version of truth” of records was lost as the BI team could not cope with the changes.
