A Cavalcade of Tips, Tricks, Hacks and General Useful Stuff using Qlik Sense's APIs A fun, casual session exploring the outer edges of what's possible with Qlik Sense's APIs. 45 mins
Achieving enterprise scale with Qlik Sense across the healthcare revenue cycle One in six hospitals in the United States use SSI Group to process healthcare claims. SSI processes over 680 million claims annually worth over $1 trillion dollars. SSI had a traditional data warehouse that scaled horizontality, achieving scale was cumbersome requiring expensive hardware. SSI redesigned the approach by creating a framework for massively scalable revenue cycle analytics. Data source scalability was achieved through the use of modern data extraction, cleansing, and sharding (horizontal partitioning) of the data warehouse. Qlik Sense scalability was achieved through designing a centralized multi-tenant solution, automation of deployment, use of Qlik’s Management Console, open APIs, Qlik Branch, and user community. Assisting SSI was an emerging company in data analytics, data engineering and data science. 45 mins
