QlikView® is a great platform. Wipro’s SNIPE-BI Transformation and Smart View business intelligence solutions, powered by Qlik’s advanced visual analytics platform, coupled with our global services network and implementation expertise will help us deliver increased value and higher ROI to our customers.”

As part of this expanded alliance, QlikView is now fully integrated into Wipro’s SmartView- ServiceNXT analytics solution which converts complex data to easy visuals, leading to simplified decision making. This integrated environment will result in customized offerings that will help organizations model, optimize, forecast, budget, execute, manage, and measure product and customer performance across the globe at the click of a button.

In addition, QlikView has been integrated into Wipro’s SNIPE-BI Transformation Solution, which empowers enterprises to simplify the BI landscape by standardizing and setting up the right set of governance, processes and policies with robust migration frameworks, tools, and accelerators to assist in seamless transformation journeys.
