Qlik Sense Serves Up Insights for LSG Sky Chefs

LSG Sky Chefs delivers management analysis of 18 million records to support analysis and reports within merger and acquisition processes

October 21, 2015

Qlik®, (NASDAQ: QLIK, a leader in visual analytics, today announced that LSG Sky Chefs, the world’s largest provider of inflight services, uses Qlik® Sense to visualize data from its Corporate M&A and Subsidiaries.

LSG Sky Chefs wanted more detailed insight into data regarding potential merger and acquisition targets. Qlik Sense not only has helped reduce the time it takes to create the reports, it also has lowered the error rate by automating the entire process. Now users can analyze data intuitively and see information in a more visually appealing way. Currently, about 18 million records are being analyzed with Qlik Sense both on desktop and mobile via iPads. This allows management to stay updated on current facts both inside and outside of the office.

From an IT perspective, Qlik Sense was chosen for its performance, operational simplicity, the broad ETL functions as well as the short time-to-market for the implementation. “With Qlik Sense, we are able to create analysis and reports much more rapidly than with traditional BI. This way, we can react earlier and more flexible to the changing requirements for our company,” said Alexander Ziehn, Director Competence Center Finance & Reporting, LSG Sky Chefs.

The self-service BI capabilities in Qlik Sense also enables a new form of collaboration between IT and the business departments at LSG Sky Chefs. “Qlik Sense visualizations make it easy to get the answers we need. Business users from the department can make adjustments on their own, thus alleviating the pressures formerly placed on the IT,” said Sven Guthmann, Manager Mergers & Acquisitions, LSG Sky Chefs.

“Today’s enterprises require much more than simple reporting or visualizations,” said James Fisher, vice president of global product marketing at Qlik. “With Qlik Sense, LSG Sky Chefs can leverage data at the point of decision to influence their merger and acquisition strategy. This is due to products’ innate ability to tell the whole story, allowing users to freely explore the data to get to the answers they need to be successful.”

LSG Sky Chefs also has plans to use Qlik Sense in its subsidiary, LSG Sky Chefs Lounge GmbH, to analyze operative and economic figures for all management levels with a Lounge KPI Analysis application.
