SYNERGi integrates with Qlik – the leading data analytics platform

As part of an ongoing development plan for their governance risk and compliance software platform, SYNERGi, IRM has introduced a new integration with market-leading reporting database, Qlik.

By combining SYNERGi’s intimate cyber GRC expertise with Qlik’s know-how in BI platforms, SYNERGi will empower end users to gain new insights from their own cyber data.

The unique combination will deliver business value in the following key areas: optimising compliance, assurance and audit operations; transforming supply chain security decision making; making faster decisions to cope with unexpected events, vulnerabilities and incidents; and optimising risk management decisions by interpreting volumes of quantitative and siloed data sources – even if it resides on legacy information systems and follows legacy processes.

As part of their development strategy, IRM has successfully integrated SYNERGi’s reporting database with Qlik. IRM has tested the integration using both the Qliq SQL connectors and REST API connectors.

Phillip Mason, Software Director for IRM says: “Our decision to provide the integration was driven by our desire to meet our customers’ growing needs. From reporting and self-service visual analysis to guided, embedded and custom analytics, regardless of where data is located in SYNERGi.”

He adds: “Customers will be able to create custom dashboards and reports; and, explore the hidden relationships within data that lead to insights that ignite risk, policy, standard, and procedure and control management”.

This integration functionality will allow customers using Qlik to gain greater meaning out of information stored in SYNERGi, adding even more value to the valuable data within the platform.
