Next steps
About the future of the partnership , Benedetto explains that the company still has three important steps in the process of migrating to SaaS .
The first will be a technical step to migrate the ingest stream to SaaS – this will allow the shutdown of two more servers , completely eliminating the onpremises installation .
The second step is to make the data dictionary available in the Qlik Data Catalog because , according to the director , although the current tool allows business analysts to build dashboards and reports , many face a lack of understanding of the data model .
The CIO explains that there are thousands of different indicators and attributes , and users have difficulties in understanding the calculation of certain indicators or the filters to be applied to certain attributes .
“ As a Data Catalog , we will bridge the gap between the corporate data dictionary and Qlik reports ,” said Benedetto .
The last step is to use the NLP functionality to query the database by users . According to Benedetto , there are
a lot of employees in stores with no technical training for whom the interface of a DataViz tool is intimidating .
Therefore , it will be a great benefit when employees ask questions directly to the tool . The team is just waiting for the Qlik solution to be available in Portuguese .
Finally , Benedetto says he ’ s already seen great value in using Qlik in his core business .
“ The self-service capabilities of Qlik ’ s cloud platform are a great fit for us to help spread data throughout the organization so our employees can collaborate on decision-making to drive our growth ,” concluded the CIO . p
