Why do I need Intelligent Alerting?
Ping Intelligent Alerts help you manage your business by exception
The aim of every manager is to leverage data to increase business velocity and therefore business value.
Monitoring Measuring and Managing by exception is made easier with automated alerting tools that enable efficient communication of exceptions that require attention, actionable alerts. Differentia Consulting can help you deploy Qlik Sense with Ping to deliver more efficient and effective exception management, thus driving more business value with actionable alerts for functional CXOs and operational decision makers.
With Ping Intelligent Alerting, users can be notified only when the condition(s) that will trigger the application alert has been met, thus giving you more control of your business. To make alerts more intelligent context can be added to the source Qlik Sense application. This way Alerts whilst Actionable remain meaningful, urgent and important. Having an alert for a client that has paid is of no value unless there is context. For example “Alert me when I get paid for orders that are on credit hold so that they can be released” The idea is to tell you what you want to know, but sooner, so that you can act.
