Data first. Revolution second.
Discover the key to transforming your entire business with data.

Digital transformation is more than just a buzzword, it’s a must-do. Yet most initiatives will fail due to a lack of data literacy, limited access to data, and poor analytics strategies. This is your chance to hear from leaders who are not failing, but leading with data.

How do you become a leader in this revolution?
The Qlik Data Revolution Tour can show you how.

Coming soon to a city near you, this exclusive one-day event reveals the leaders in the Data Revolution will be those who can bring to bear the totality of their data assets to seek and uncover transformational insights and enrich every decision across all aspects of their operations.

LRA by Deloitte is the leading global provider of brand protection and customer experience measurement services for multinational companies with complex customer interactions.

Balancing healthcare business operations with business intelligence is not easily realized. The underlying issue is often that business leaders are not data literate and the analytics team doesn’t fully understand the business. Join us for a discussion on how to close this gap and bring the business and IT teams closer together for collaboration that truly delivers business value. Examples from Qlik Healthcare customers will be shared.

In this session, you'll learn how to extend Qlik with the power of machine learning as a non-data scientist, and elevate your Data Analysts to Citizen Data Scientists. Using Big Squid's easy to use machine learning platform Kraken, we'll show you how to uncover hidden patterns in your data and answer forward-looking business questions like "what will happen next month?" and "what can we do about it today?". Realize immediate value with this fully integrated end-to-end solution. Come to learn how other Qlik customers have embraced machine learning and are easily able to run predictive analysis, what-if scenarios and provide actionable insight to their business.

IAS is the industry's first and most complete F&I solutions provider offering custom aftermarket products and innovative F&I technology solutions.

This session will provide an overview of the ‘hidden gems’ of Qlik and how they are driving a major transformation in the Office of Finance. Paul Van Siclen (CPA and former divisional CFO of a $2.5 billion loan/lease portfolio) will demonstrate how Finance & Accounting departments across the globe are maximizing the value of the Qlik platform.

Just as consumers have come to experience with leading commerce players, expectations on providing timely, personalized recommendations on products and services can make or break a sale and drive decisions on what to stock and how to sell products together. This session will cover leading-edge capabilities that draw insights from sales and customer behaviors to create stickiness, margin analysis and inventory management.
