Climber Partners with Lavastorm Analytics to Improve and Streamline Business Processes with Agile, Enterprise-grade Analytic Solutions

Lavastorm Analytics, a leading global analytics software company, and Climber, the largest QlikView solution provider in Europe, today announced that they have partnered to empower business analysts with enterprise-grade self-service business intelligence capabilities. Climber will combine the Lavastorm Analytics Engine, Lavastorm’s agile data management and analytics software, with QlikView to create analytic solutions that provide outstanding ease of use and empower business users to visualize complex data from multiple sources and to improve business performance through unique process analytics capabilities.

A developer of more than 1,000 QlikView solutions, Climber experienced a high demand for agile, self-service analytic solutions, but also realized a gap in the marketplace; business users want to improve business processes by visualizing more data from myriad disparate data sources and they need to perform more complicated analytics, such as fuzzy matching, predictive analytics and statistical calculations to solve many business challenges. To address these demands, Climber decided to partner with Lavastorm, already a Qlik technology partner. With the Lavastorm Analytics Engine, Climber gained the following advantages that complement QlikView solutions:

  • Agile ETL – Combine data ten times faster than traditional analytic tools and accelerate the process to extract, transform and load (ETL) data into QlikView dashboards for visualization and analysis. Lavastorm’s visual environment speeds the creation and debugging of ETL processes.
  • Analyze multiple data sources – Integrate data from multiple data sources and from virtually any source without heavy scripting or custom programming.
  • Enhanced analytics – Prepare data for visualization in QlikView by applying analytic functions such as fuzzy matching logic, predictive analytic functions created in the R programming language, and threshold checks.
  • Business Process Analytics – Organizations can continuously analyze transactional and systems data to identify data quality issues, process anomalies, data outliers, or other patterns that can be used to improve business process performance.

“Our customers rely on interactive visualizations to give business users the power to explore data from all angles, but the initial successes they have achieved using QlikView have caused them to want to visualize multiple data sources and to answer more complex questions,” said Jan Sipek, CEO, Climber. “Lavastorm gives us a strong data management and analytic foundation that gives us the speed and flexibility to address even the most complicated data integration and analysis challenges they face.”

“As Europe’s biggest QlikView solution provider, Climber has extensive experience building self-service analytic solutions and has proven that they can solve the ease-of-use challenges that are critical to the success of any analytic project,” said Toffer Winslow, general manager of Lavastorm Analytics. “Companies shouldn’t have to choose between an easy to understand analytics solution and one that has the power to answer the most crucial business questions. By bringing together the Lavastorm Analytics Engine, QlikView, and Climber’s experience implementing agile BI solutions, Climber is ensuring that they no longer have to.”
