    Managing a Multi-Country Telco Using Qlik

    Virgin Mobile MEA adopted Qlik in 2014, and it has since adopted it as its only BI tool across three continents, 6 countries and managing over 3M end user customers. We use Qlik across all areas of the business, from developing budgets to tracking daily performance across all KPIs to doing deep analysis into specific business problem to quickly and accurately diagnose issues and define actions.

    We are now taking the Qlik environment to the next level within our group, by adopting Qlik Sense, re-thinking our Qlik dashboards and NPrinting reports, as well as incorporating a whole range of new types of analysis (RoI on digital Marketing spend, geo-location reporting, etc.). It will take our business to the next level.

    Taking Analytics to the Next Level with a Qlik Center of Excellence: A Customer’s Perspective

    Join this session to find out how Regeneron partnered with Qlik Consulting to design and deploy a Qlik Center of Excellence (CoE) to ensure that the appropriate support and guidance was widely available to enable their business teams to deploy and scale across the organization.  The Qlik Center of Excellence is a multi-faceted, dedicated team that helps drive adoption, usage and governance in a Qlik ecosystem.

    We will cover the approach, the successes we’ve had, and the lessons that we learned throughout the process.  We will also address the CoE from the perspective of the end customer (business benefits), the platform and model required to support a semi-autonomous environment (CIO perspective), and the advisory activity to accelerate the process (the project approach).  

    Regeneron is a fast growth pharmaceutical company that is #3 on Forbes 2016 most innovative companies list.
