Recently, QlikView launched its' “Direct Discovery” feature, which makes a data source database accessible to reports on demand. In its' standard settings, QlikView uploads all the necessary data into a column store database in advance. However, when needed, the Direct Discovery function enables it to access data from SQL data sources, to complement the column store database. To analyse your information, you can combine sources of data from different suppliers and vendors into one QlikView application.

Data mining is the process of hunting for nuggets or gems of information, stored deep inside data pools. Whilst historically, miners used manual labor, the data miners of today use corporate intelligence solutions to access and interpret data. As companies have become more sophisticated and more dependent on data, the quantity of data they use has massively increased. The phrase “big data” refers to the huge amount of data businesses have to sift through to locate those prized nuggets. For instance, consider a major retailer, with a gift registry and several point of sale, inventory and sales promotion systems.

Though South Africa has long been a staple of the world's mining industry, having produced natural resources as well as gold and diamonds in huge numbers, the current state of South African mining sectors appear in jeopardy. The cost of energy has lead to lower usage of electricity, reducing the profit margins of coal mining operations and forcing some companies to lay off workers. With less labour and wages comes frustration and inefficiency from workers. The best way to counteract the current inefficiencies is to collect business intelligence for mining industry operations.
