Qlik vs spreadsheets – focus on analyzing data, not preparing it

Many finance teams rely on spreadsheets like Excel to analyze data. As convenient as this seems, it introduces many challenges. With spreadsheets, people spend about 80% of their time manually extracting and prepping data and only 20% analyzing it. And layering on additional visualization tools just adds another step to this process. Further, this ungoverned process can often introduce inaccurate data, which reduces confidence in your financial analysis.

Qlik automates and accelerates data integration and prep, empowering finance teams to focus their time exploring trusted, governed data using powerful analytics to uncover hidden insights they can’t find with spreadsheets.
