Enfo Pointer is a partner of QlikTech since 2009. QlikTech develops and sells the BI software suite QlikView, which has seen major success over the past years. Enfo Pointer is a QlikView reseller, so our customers get access to a one-stop-shop for software and consultancy services. QlikView is a very popular, flexible and intuitive tool that has become a solid part of the BI market. Today, QlikView addresses the Enterprise segment to increasing extent, which has led to increased demand for the combination of QlikView and a Data Warehouse (or information warehouse as we’d rather call it, when the Data Warehouse contains high quality data and correct dimension definitions). A combination of QlikView and a Data Warehouse ensures that the solution is future-proof, can handle certain types of historical information and to simplify and rationalize coding and the maintenance of code (common code in the Data Warehouse, instead of in each QlikView application). Performance is also improved when certain calculations can be made in the Data Warehouse instead of, e.g., in QlikView graphs.
Enfo Pointer has realized a number of projects where we have combined QlikView with a Data Warehouse. This has been done using agile project methods, which has given faster and higher quality deliveries and consequently, more satisfied customers. Read about the QlikView project at Niscayah here. Examples of other Enfo Pointer QlikView customers are Vinnova, Nolato, Dustin, Cybercom and Bisnode
Enfo Pointer is a partner to IBM Cognos since many years. We are a Cognos software reseller, so our customers get access to a one-stop-shop for software and consultancy services. We work with the whole solution chain from Cognos BI to the budget and planning solutions TM1 and Cognos Planning. We dare to say that Enfo Pointer has some of Sweden’s best Cognos consultants, both within Cognos BI suite and Cognos Planning. IBM Cognos is a stable and solid global vendor. The launching of Cognos BI10 during fall 2010 has also added appreciated new functionality to an already widely distributed and popular software suite. Some of Enfo Pointer’s customers working with Cognos are Pernod Ricard, Getinge and Länsförsäkringar Stockholm.
The Data Warehouse solutions – information warehouses – that Enfo Pointer has built so far are to a large extent built on Microsoft technology (MS SQL Server and MS SSIS, SQL Server Integration Services). Business Intelligence is a focus area for Microsoft and the company now provides widely extended functionality in Excel, Power Pivot, apart from the tools SSAS (SQL Server Analysis Service) and SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services). In Power Pivot you can build table- and graphics-based reports where the user in a simple and intuitive way can choose what part of the accessible information they want to explore. Thanks to the wide portfolio of products, Microsoft also has many solutions within geographical information and portal solutions, which can help you build a complete and flexible environment for decision support. Some of Enfo Pointer’s customers that use Microsoft BI products are Coop MedMera and British American Tobacco.
SAP Business Objects
Enfo Pointer has long experience of SAP Business Objects (BO) solutions and has some of the most experienced BO consultants in Sweden. Enfo Pointer customers that work with BO products are for example British American Tobacco and Aditro.
Enfo Pointer has, in addition to our active partnerships, knowledge within several other Business Intelligence tools. For example, we have consultants with experience of Informatica and Oracle (e. g. Warehouse Builder).
