June 29, 2011–In “The Swedish Enforcement Authority Expands Its Use of QlikView to Save Nearly a Million Dollars,” MarketWatch reports that the Swedish Enforcement Authority will expand its use of QlikView to its human resources, debt restructuring, and executive real estate departments.
“QlikView has been used to analyze the records of more than one out of ten Swedes or 900,000 individual debtors to help those who have money owed to recover funds.” The agency, which helps those who have money owed to recover funds, has worked with QlikView “to develop a new prototype that will be implemented shortly for a fraction of the previously anticipated cost.” The Authority “will save six million Swedish crones in total by using hundreds of parameters to give specific information for the evaluation of the debtors.”
Trying to quantify savings derived from BI implementations can be tricky, as explained in Managing Automation’s “BI: Where’s the Payoff?” Wise Analytics offers some assistance with its “Defining ROI for BI.” While it may be difficult to prove, BI does pay off. Computerworld’s “UPS Leverages Real-Time Data with Package-Flow Application” details the shipping giant’s 2011 Gartner BI Excellence Award-winning initiative, which will reportedly help it save $600 million annually.
