Governed Business Discovery with QlikView Expressor


QlikView Expressor addresses a set of needs commonly found in complex environments that have a wide variety of data formats and access methods. These environments require a systematic way of obtaining and mapping data to a shared business model. QlikView Expressor enables customers to rapidly build integrations that preserve the integrity of the core business model while adapting to the complexity at the “furry” edges of the BI platform. Through the progressive synthesis of reusable and active metadata artifacts for accessing and conforming data from diverse sources, customers gain a superior level of control, repeatability and overall governance that ensures fast and efficient access to properly conformed data. This presentation will focus on how QlikView Expressor delivers this level of governance with control and reuse, including a live demonstration and reference to customer uses cases.
