Fujitsu Enhances Big Data Analytics Solution to Facilitate Decision-Making on the Front Lines of Business
Integrates QlikView data visualization product into its big data solution Fujitsu Limited
Bangkok , 30 September 2014 – Fujitsu Limited today announced that QlikView, a business intelligence (BI) tool from data visualization product market leader Qlik Technologies, Inc., has been embedded into the data analysis model provided by FUJITSU Business Application Operational Data Management & Analytics, a Fujitsu solution that enables the effective use of big data. The enhanced solution is available as of today in Japan only.
QlikView offers an interface that can be operated intuitively and that requires no special ICT skills. It enables users to analyze and visualize big data through simple operations, so that people in charge of business areas such as sales or marketing can perform their own data analyses, get a better sense of how their business is doing, and make decisions more quickly.
Fujitsu will be providing training services to help companies deploy, use, and make the most of QlikView, and will also be selling QlikView as a stand-alone product. In so doing, Fujitsu will facilitate faster decision making and greater management capabilities based on concrete data.
Until now, the use of big data has largely been restricted to IT experts, data scientists, and professional analysts, but there is a growing need to use data for quick decision making among departments that are directly involved in product strategy or sales. This has put a new focus on usability in data analysis in order to make it easy for people responsible for sales and marketing to use without requiring any special ICT skills.
To meet these needs, the Fujitsu Operational Data Management & Analytics solution, announced May 13, 2014, has been embedded with QlikView, the data analysis and visualization product from Qlik Technologies, which has the leading market share of data visualization products. Fujitsu will offer this product together with its expertise in utilizing big data.
