Katipult
Katipult Technology Corp. , a leading Fintech provider of software for powering the exchange of capital in equity and debt markets, announced today that its private placements platform, DealFlow, has been upgraded with the addition of a new enterprise-grade data integration module – DealFlow: DataHub. This module enables users to securely link their backend systems with the DealFlow platform, allowing them to directly populate subscription documents with the latest information from their systems of record.

"We're very excited to announce the launch of the DealFlow: DataHub module. Our experience working with investment banks and broker dealers showed us that being able to seamlessly interface with their legacy systems of record is critical for helping them accelerate the pace of digital transformation. DealFlow:DataHub further amplifies the efficiency-boosting capabilities of DealFlow by removing yet another manual step in the private placements process. Not only is scalability improved, but there are also positive knock-on effects on compliance as data integrity and continuity are preserved."

Gord Breese, Katipult CEO

DealFlow:'s DataHub extracts large volumes of data from the commonly used systems of record in the industry, such as ISM or Dataphile. The data is then streamlined and used to populate the intelligent digital subscription documents that are core to the DealFlow platform. With the addition of DealFlow: DataHub, customers will no longer need to manually input or update the data that will populate the subscription documents. Further, DataHub will also enable single sign-on to the DealFlow platform, allowing users to sign on with their standard enterprise credentials.

Katipult's goal with DealFlow is to help institutions unlock the full potential of private placements by streamlining as many processes as possible. DealFlow: DataHub represents yet another step forward in that direction.

Nordisk Film Adopts Qlik Cloud Analytics for Operational Efficiencies and Reduced Costs

Qlik | August 10, 2022

Qlik® today announced Nordisk Film, the Nordic region's leading creator and distributor of films, has adopted Qlik Cloud® Analytics to realize operational efficiencies, reduce costs associated with data preparation and analysis, and ultimately expand data-decision making throughout the organization. Nordisk Film is known as an industry innovator at the forefront of adopting modern technology and solutions that foster new, improved ways of working. Over the last five years, Nordisk Film has been on a journey to deploy strategies that meet modern consumer demands while leveraging fact-based decisions. Nordisk Film’s prior business intelligence systems required significant maintenance, service, and dedicated storage space and memory. This made the system difficult for users to work with and limited Nordisk’s ability to scale the use of data for decisions. Nordisk Film was also looking to increase collaboration and streamline its different computer systems and data warehouses into a single cloud platform. Nordisk Film chose to move to Qlik Cloud for importing, clearing and analyzing data in order to make more informed business decisions while leveraging Qlik Sense® SaaS. “Previously we spent a lot of time with maintenance and making sure our internal systems worked. “We migrated our old local platform to a Qlik environment, saving us time and allowing us to take advantage of the latest technical developments and improve our data structure for a more mature approach to analytics.” Mikkel Hecht Hansen, Head of BI at Nordisk Film For Nordisk Film, it is important to have a cost-effective and scalable platform, while also being able to leverage modern analytics capabilities such as augmented analytics and mobile access. “Qlik has given us a completely different dimension of new knowledge and opportunities through, among other things, Insight Advisor. Along with an easy and simple security login through Azure AD, Qlik gives us many insights and data-driven facts that help us make better decisions,” said Hansen. Insight Advisor is the AI assistant built into Qlik Sense that generates advanced analytics and insights using natural language interaction for Nordisk analytics users. Another key innovation in Qlik’s platform that is bringing value to Nordisk is Collaborative Notes, which allows employees to comment or write longer reports directly in the analytics environment. And Qlik being easy-to-learn and applicable to many different business areas has helped Nordisk Film expand analytics adoption across the business. “Nordisk Film is a great example of an incredible brand that is leveraging Qlik Cloud to accelerate its transformation into a data-driven business,” said Francisco Mateo-Sidron, Senior Vice President EMEA for Qlik. “We look forward to helping Nordisk continue to expand its ability to leverage cloud analytics for impact throughout the entire organization.” About Nordisk Film Nordisk Film is a leading Nordic entertainment and experience company focused on storytelling across platforms. We produce, market and distribute film and series, operate a leading Nordic cinema chain, is behind global game studios and PlayStation in the Nordics, and delivers digital gift card solutions to the world.
