Mike Gibbons shares his view on Big Data and Self-Service analytics as current market trends. Aggregate Industries views data as an asset, what they can get from their data, how to gain knowledge from data and become more competitive.

Aggregate Industries moved from Cognos to QlikView because of the user friendliness of QlikView, the deployment of applications into the business being achieved within days and the amount of data it handles and the efficiency of this. Qlik Sense has also now been embedded into the organisation and has changed the analytic landscape by giving users more power. Qlik Sense is mainly used in their customer facing environment via a mobile device where visualisation is important and a number of capabilities come together to give customers a really good view of the products and the company itself.
