demand, managing quality, inventory, waste or compliance – is key to enforcing
a culture of fact-based decision-making in manufacturing industries,” said
David Telford, Senior Director of Global Manufacturing & High Tech at
QlikTech. “QlikView’s differentiation is its ability to deliver the simplicity
