Hey Guys - if you have been following Qlik, then you know that once again Gartner has placed us as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms for the 8th year in a row ... AND.... you know that every year around this time we participate in a friendly, live, on-stage Business Intelligence competition know as the BI Bake Off. This informative and exciting session is held during Gartner's Data Analytics Summit and hosted by BI research VP Cindi Howson, previously of (@BIScorecard) fame. It's a time and place for Qlik and its competition (Tableau, Microsoft, MicroStrategy) to showcase their greatest strengths...and possibly expose a few weaknesses - in front of many organizations' data analytics leaders. Overall, despite our competitive spirit, it is an awesome experience and a fun time to be had by all. Our presenter Josh Good (@joshdotbad) - led an entertaining and interesting session, showcasing Qlik's solution.

Prior to the event, the Qlik team prepares a solution following a provided script based off of a public data set given to them by Cindi. Data usually centers around a topic in which each vendor can show how they can "do good" with the data, which is consistent enough to facilitate a side-by-side comparison. In the past we have analyzed traffic fatalities, homelessness and college debt, but this year the data centered around the deeply emotional opioid epidemic plaguing this great nation.


During the session, each vendor takes turns using their software to present their analytics while showcasing the capabilities of their software within a few different categories.

Hi

Its a minor point. But I don't think its a good idea to put a chart title in a text box. as its lost when the chart is full screen

And onto the figures. Are these figures supposed to be accurate figures. Or just to show how the various solutions work. For example June 2017 = 88.64k (88,640 for one month. Is this correct). Or total claims = 78.84m (million).

But the solution looks impressive. But I got lost trying to work out what the figures meant. And if they were accurate.
