A Tale of Two Qliks Aaron Couron / LivingQlikView

Step Back for a Minute

I have been hesitant to write my thoughts on the new QlikView platform. This is partly because I wanted to be sure I was adding something insightful or at least interesting to the conversation. But, more importantly because I wanted a chance to temper my knee-jerk response with some thought and perspective. On the first point, I am still not sure I will be interesting nor insightful. On the second, I think I have stepped back far enough to see the big picture on what is a large step forward in the evolution of Business Discovery.

Paralysis from Business Information Overload

Our brains are made up of special cells called nerve cells. A nerve cell has a bulb-like cell body attached to a long nerve fiber, which is like a wire, and it actually carries very tiny electrical signals. These signals are the information that tell us what we feel, what we think, what we see, what we touch.

Analysts can be Big Data Pioneers

A pioneer is one of the first to explore and develop a new idea, concept or activity.

Not only could you see through walls like Superman but you could view bones in your own hand and see through women’s clothing.  This was probably more intriguing to young boys than girls.
