Analytics2Insights Launch Announcement


We are very excited to announce the launch of our new Analytics2Insights service today!


Modernising Management (Pty) Ltd today launched Analytics2Insights which is a cloud based platform that provides prebuilt analytical solutions that automatically integrates to your cloud based solutions.


We have built solutions on the following platforms:


"We have reached a major milestone in MM's life. This has been a massive development and collaboration effort from various teams (Marketing, Sales, Technology & Innovation, Solution Architecture, Solution Development, System Architecture) within the company and I truly respect and appreciate the team's contribution to what I believe are world class quality analytical solutions. We have built a self service platform that enables any user to subscribe, configure their solution, assign their licenses and access their licenses. As a small company that has grown successfully over the last 8 years through good decisions making from good decision support analytics and customer centricity, we want to share the decision support capability with other likeminded business owners, managers and analysts that wish to improve their own work. We look forward to continuously improve the current solutions and roll out new solutions on two week cycles so stay tuned!" says John Paul Kirton, CEO, Modernising Management (Pty) Ltd

Qlik Summit 2018 - DONE

Very happy to share some of our experiences with the summit this year.

I suppose it is always like that when you have such a massive investment in time, effort, resources and expense that one might wonder whether it was all worth it in the end? The answer for that is yes, as our main objective was to represent MM to our existing customers at the event and secondary to that it was to inform everyone else what we have been up to for the last year.... which has been a lot...

First of all it's great to see MM up in lights:

So... what have we been up too?

  1. We have been building Analytics2Insights which is a cloud based platform that provides prebuilt analytical solutions that automatically integrates to your cloud based solutions - expected launch date 1 August 2018
  2. We have been investing heavily into our Advanced Insights business and bolstering out our team with some very good data scientists. The team represented some AI cases we have implemented around cashflow for instance as well as some SalesForce, Services Now, Reuters cases in Squirro the AI driven context intelligence solution
  3. We represented ebiexperts - WIP Agile lifecycle management solution for @Qlik #Qlik
  4. We represented our self service data management solution with Dremio
  5. We were quite happy with the interest in our total logical architecture and it is quite scary what we have been able to accomplish in the data architecture and analytics space


The team worked really hard during the day, spending great time informing our visitors about our solutions:

Ruan and JP did a great job (Ruan more than JP) on presenting our new cloud platform Analytics2Insights:

So after a long day working hard with the team we did manage one beer and then called it :-)

Overall a very successful day with great engagements and information sharing sessions with existing customers and some interested prospective customers. 

Lessons Learned:

- Wear comfortable shoes

SA Qlik Summit 2017 Review

Wow what an amazing event for MM, so many highlights!

Lets start with the end and inform those who have not been following us on Twitter (@Modernising) that MM won a Qlik Customer Innovation Award for the innovative work we did together with our Standard Bank team on their Social Media Sentiment Analysis application. I would like to add it is an absolute pleasure to work with a highly effective Qlik Team and this was genuinely a collaborative effort from both customer and MM.

Qlik Social Media Solution

The Standard Bank Of South Africa IT and Marketing teams utilize QlikView and Qlik Web connectors to retrieve and analyze keywords, customers and employees social media engagements including sentiment analysis on various bank products and services. The bank benchmarks themselves against other banks through connecting to Twitter, Facebook, Klout and a sentiment engine to track feeds from people, followers, #hashtags, mentions, favourited and more. The true value of the solution is not only in the Qlik automated solution, but in the analysis and improvements the bank makes through better social engagement with their employees and customers.

Awards bode well as reward and target!

I congratulate the MM team, who are not only highly effective, but living on the innovation cusp of all that Qlik technology affords us!



We had so many of our existing customers, especially our banking customers joining us at the event and allowing us to show them some of the other innovative things we do with Qlik. Thank you for taking the time, the great discussions and the follow ups!


We also have the opportunity to promote some of our partner's technology (NarrativeScience, ebiexperts, and Squirro) and we thank them all for supporting us before and during the event. There was some really good interest in all the technology and we look forward to the follow-ups. The age of data sciences and advanced analytics combined with contextual intelligence is going to be super exiting for us as a company!


Worth a mention: Highlight

We were very honored with the visit from James Fisher @JamesaFisher, VP, Global Product Marketing, Qlik who not only stopped by to hear about us and our technologies and solutions but also tweeted about our good demo's at the stand. Thanks James and it was really great to meet  who I consider to be the Qlik Futurist :-)

Well it was a long very exiting day and we congratulate all that participated.

Congratulations to @Qlik, @Modernising, @SA_Qlik for work well done!
