3. Jewellery Retail Store using QlikView and saving 55% operating cost : Not just in financial, retail, health, media & advertising but QlikView is used in new markets. I have seen few innovative ways of using QlikView platform. It’s interesting to see a retail chain of Jewellery stores using QlikView.

For a jewellery retailer like Thangamayil, the abilities to monitor 40 million records of inventory across all its stores, reduce stock levels to improve profitability, and provide better customer satisfaction, are key business priorities.  To overcome these challenges, Thangamayil implemented QlikView to enable users to explore inventory data in near real time, resulting in timely stock replenishments based on actual product sales. QlikView also allowed Thangamayil to create accurate budget forecasting in order to make better and more objective decisions for the business.

4. Blog post of the week – “Conditional Aggregation” byHenric Cronström: HIC shows us – how to implement conditional aggregation expressions in QlikView. There are three ways to write the conditional aggregation expressions.

  • A conditional expression outside the aggregation function, e.g. If( <Condition>, Sum( <Expression> ) )
  • A conditional expression inside the aggregation function, e.g. Sum( If( <Condition>, <Expression> ) )
  • Set Analysis, e.g. Sum( {<Set Expression>} <Expression> )
