Software company Qlik has partnered with NTUC LearningHub, a training provider in Singapore, to offer courses on using Qlik to develop dashboards to obtain better insights from data.
According to Qlik, such data-driven insights can help companies to see the 'whole story' in their data in order to provide better customer service, increase productivity, as well as boost sales opportunities.
For example, BH Global Corporation Limited has been using Qlik's visual analytics platform to study their customers' purchasing habits to better plan and complete the company's service and procurement processes, resulting in improved demand forecasting and faster response times.
"Being able to analyse data is a skillset that is gaining importance in Singapore and around the world. With the explosion of internet technology, there is a lot of data out there. If we are not able to crunch the data and present our findings in a useful format, we will be overwhelmed by data saturation," said Kwek Kok Kwong, CEO, NTUC LearningHub.
"All companies should therefore invest resources to equip their staff with such a skillset so that they can in turn crunch and present data in a format that is useful for supporting better and faster business decisions. Our partnership with Qlik is aimed at creating this future skill in our workforce," he added.
The programmes by NTUC LearningHub are currently available and are delivered by a pool of trainers trained and accredited by Qlik.
