CASE STUDY

Leroy Merlin Brazil has migrated its full analytics efforts to Qlik Cloud – enhanced by Qlik Catalog – to support continued growth through reliable , governed data and self-service analytics .

Leroy Merlin is part of GROUP ADEO , a group of companies dedicated to home improvement covering everything from home renovation and decoration to DIY and kitchen utensils .
The company has over 130,000 employees and supports 42 superstores throughout Brazil , which has seen a significant and continued increase in business due to COVID-19 and the rush for home improvement projects .
Being a longtime user of Qlik Sense , the organization was looking to democratize access to data in order to help more of its in-store and back-office employees make faster and better decisions through self-serve analytics to match the growth that the company was experiencing .
An initial data literacy initiative , suggested and supported by Qlik focusing on the company ’ s HR and organizational transformation areas , created great interest in providing company analytics access . Leroy Merlin realized that it would benefit from the scale and cost efficiencies of moving to Qlik Cloud to make data available to more of the company ’ s employees .
