Data Modelling - Unlock The Power Of Your Business Data - Ometis

Data Modelling

Data modelling is the skill of consolidating all your business data from a variety of sources into a series of optimised and re-usable data models.

A data model is used to define, connect, organise and display data associations within a Qlik application. It describes how data is connected, sorted, accessed and processed. At Ometis, we tailor this data delivery to suit relevant use-cases.

If you don’t have experience of building data models, this is where things can go quickly wrong in the delivery of your Business Intelligence solution. Whether it be overloading the server, duplicating data, introducing inconsistencies or other common problems, our experience ensures efficient data modelling that provides the right information to the right teams in the most efficient, high-performing way.

We guarantee best practices are followed during data modelling as our team of experienced Qlik experts have faced hundreds of complex data challenges over the years. We will draw on this experience when helping you design the correct data model because we understand the importance of getting this right.

Every project is different but some of the main areas that often pose a problem when data modelling are:

Data Volumes

By understanding the core Qlik technology, we use many techniques to reduce the footprint of the data. Reducing file size and memory usage allows for more responsive applications – even across data sets with many millions of rows.

Consolidating Systems

Bringing different sets of transactions together from different source systems can pose some tricky data modelling challenges. We can ensure consistent results that don’t affect performance. We have developed a set of core principles that can be applied across all solutions to minimise the impact of consolidating data while maximising the results.


As Qlik experts, we understand the different ways security can be applied when developing a Qlik application. We appreciate the significance of implementing the correct architecture to fully secure the data and make sure that users only see what they are permitted to see.


A well-designed data model will allow for sub-second response times. Avoiding some of the common pitfalls is an important step in delivering a fast, reliable solutions. Our team are fully trained and skilled in understanding how best to build a fast-performing Qlik application.
