Music Statistics with QlikView

QlikView is a product/suite that is used for clever presentation of data in clickable formats for people who like pictures to explain their data as opposed to actual data. For those who absolutely love seeing their metrics and KPI's as inappropriate "speed gauge" style indicators, this product has it down. The data is loaded from your desired datasource into a local file which greatly reduces the rendering time while making the solution a lot less "on-demand" than I prefer. Alas, it is in use and the people have embraced it.

In addition to the business application, there is a much more interesting section of data loaded on their website connected to MediaGuide to provide music information. Slightly limited, but all things considered, pretty cool.
