What you need to know before starting with QlikView
It's important to learn how to work with QlikView. Through QlikView's Expense Management application, I show you how users can be taught to use QlikView to detect exorbitant spending in a company and perform detailed data analysis. Since QlikView is data driven, and it reacts to anything you select, by understanding selections and associations, you will work more efficiently with the tool.
What kind of application are we building in a course
We create Shoe Sales application from scratch. This is an imaginary scenario where we analyze shoe sales business across USA. We have stores in cities where shoes are sold, so we need to focus on what are we selling, for how much, how profitable we are and if we are losing money on certain sales.
All the sample data will be provided in the course and as a bonus, I show you how to use website called Mockaroo to build any data mockups. You can even use Mockaroo for other data analysis projects, or for demonstration purposes.
What development and visualization concepts we cover in course
This course is about development and visualization. You will get insights into modeling practices, learn to use scripts for loading, cleaning, joining and preparing data for visualizations. We cover topics like table naming, concatenation, symbolic links, building artificial keys, table joins, and various scripting functions.
Specific courses are provided for specific visualization techniques like straight or pivot tables, search boxes, list boxes, selections, line and bar charts and design of KPIs - a key metric users should focus on first.
