Deciding a solution to this problem must be found, Wesley Rodrigo Couto Lira, the Director for the Department of Standards and Logistic Systems with the Brazilian Ministry, set his sights on a data analytics tool. They needed the tool to fit the requirements they had decided upon:
The Qlik platform fit all of these requirements. After importing more than 1.5 terabytes of data into Qlik, Wesley’s team was ready to create interactive, up-to-date, and most importantly – simple, dashboards ready to help the public make informed decisions.
With the Qlik platform now in place, any Brazilian citizen may access this data and use it to make knowledgeable decisions about their purchasing options. A process that used to take anywhere from 15 to 20 days, has been reduced to only a few minutes! This time cut dramatically raises the state’s efficiency in ensuring realistic and effective contracts between suppliers and contractors.
“There are over 4,000 daily accesses to the pricing dashboard and users spend on average 11 minutes in it. So what used to take weeks to research prices has become only a few minutes.” –Wesley Lira, Ministério do Planejamento, Diretor de Logística
A problem that had been plaguing the Brazilian government for 18 years was solved simply by investing in modern data analytics!
