TechValidate Research on Qlik

Case Study: Cooper Farms, Inc.


This case study of Cooper Farms, Inc. is based on a October 2015 survey of Qlik customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We are still early in our process of fully implementing the power of Qlik across our company, however, I think it has proven to be useful for being able to attain net new insights into multiple aspects of our business. It does this both with its ability to bring together disparate and sometimes loosely structured data sources, as well as its ability to build interactive visualizations that let us explore the data. It’s also useful as a platform for taking known insights and making them more visible across the enterprise, such as with production floor dashboards. We have also used it as a tool to improve administrative efficiency as many reports were created manually in Excel to combine and aggregate data to get it in a format business stakeholders need.”


Cooper Farms used to lack a way to easily analyze data. Their old BI tool was simply unable to support their data analysis needs.

  • Data-related impediments for making important decisions before implementing Qlik.

The main reasons why they picked Qlik were because it’s easy to use; it lets them associate data from multiple sources and quickly drill down to the underlying data. Users can create intuitive and smart visualizations to represent their data, and Qlik’s robust governance capabilities let them determine who can access what and what they can do with it.

Use Case

Qlik is deployed across the enterprise.


One Cooper Farms employee say they “can’t do their job without Qlik” and using it has made them more valuable to the organization.
