Pomerol Partners Signs-on as K4 Analytics Reseller
Leverage K4 Analytics for advanced planning, budgeting, and, forecasting from inside your Qlik apps
We are pleased to announce our recent partnership with K4 Analytics. K4 Analytics extends the Qlik platform – both QlikView and Qlik Sense – to enable advanced planning, budgeting, and, forecasting in combination with the analysis strengths of Qlik.
Pomerol Partners can leverage K4 software to build and deploy agile planning applications (cloud-based or on premise) in a fraction of the time and cost required by other products such as Hyperion.
K4 allows you to leverage all the flexibility of spreadsheets inside QlikView and Qlik Sense. Using an Excel file as a template, keeping all the formulas and the formatting, K4 dynamically fetches data from Qlik dataset and SQL live queries to populate the Excel template.
You can, for example, use K4 to manage a simple Profit & Loss statement with amazing speed and simplicity: just build the template in Excel, link cells to data and use it inside Qlik, users are not required to have MS Excel installed. And it doesn’t stop there … you can even enter data, text, date, checkbox and drop lists in K4, saving on the fly to a SQL database!
In a very simple way you can lock data (disable the data-entry) on a cell-by-cell basis through a Qlik or a SQL expression:you can display actual data for closed month and editable cells for planning months. The locking logic can be as complex as you need: taking into account for example the current date versus the planning calendar and the current user versus the hierarchies. You can manage a distributed planning process with multiple users entering data in a common database with full control thanks to K4 Audit Trails feature.
