“Now we have the ability to analyze data across multiple business units and applications. It doesn’t matter what type of data it is: there is no limit. There is no more waiting for reports, the entire process has been automated in many cases and saved our reporting team many hours of work.” – Laks Yelugoti, IS Manager, SMART Modular
The effects of implementing this data analysis were staggering. The SMART Modular reporting team went from updating numbers on 50-100 different reports on a daily basis to slicing and dicing the data through an automated dashboard set-up. Here are just a few of the other changes that took place:
“Our users have spread the word about Qlik and new business units became interested in implementing it in their departments. We have users in finance, manufacturing, quality control, sales, operations and many other parts of the business. Most new users will ask us the same question: ‘Can we put this data in Qlik?’ to which I say, yes.”- Laks Yelugoti, IS Manager, SMART Modular
In the five years that SMART Modular has worked with Qlik, they have generated over 50 apps and maintain roughly 175 users to date. What was once an ad-hocracy for reporting data is now a one-stop shop that recalls the data they need when the need arises.
