QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK) is a leader in Business Discovery-user-driven Business Intelligence (BI). QlikTech's powerful, accessible Business Discovery solution bridges the gap between traditional business intelligence solutions and standalone office productivity applications. Its QlikView Business Discovery platform enables intuitive user-driven analysis that can be implemented in days or weeks rather than months, years, or not at all. The in-memory associative search technology it pioneered allows users to explore information freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions. QlikView Business Discovery works with existing BI applications and adds new capabilities: insight for everyone, zero-wait analysis, mobility, an app-like model, remixability and reassembly, and a social and collaborative experience. Headquartered in Radnor, Pennsylvania, QlikTech has offices around the world serving more approximately 25,000 customers in over 100 countries.
Insurers rely on their abilities to assess risk and have a detailed understanding of their customer needs. The right strategies and tools help to optimise performance and make faster, better-informed, risk related decisions. Technology can play an important role within this risk management process.
A survey of 30 financial institutions was conducted which explores the degree of collaboration between the risk function and the front office. It investigates how optimum decision-making can be reached, the role of effective collaboration in this process and how this enhances business strategies.
