Before Cube.js, Cota used Qlik to provide hospital administrators with analytics for cancer data. There were not many options to extend Qlik to provide users with a great user experience and different features like in-app data drill downs.
These existing solution inabilities led to the decision of in-house development of such an analytics solution. Before starting development of this solution from scratch, Cota engineers were fortunate to find Cube.js, which provided a simple analytics data access API, which was exactly what they were looking for.
Qlik wasn’t able to provide the required user experience level and customization features for hospital administrators.
It was clear that the company needed to build a solution in-house without using third party BI tools to fulfill all the requirements.
It was only one software engineer, mostly with frontend expertise, who was allocated for this project.
With Cube.js, in just 8 weeks Cota was able to provide hospital administrators with a solution for analyzing cancer data with a much better look, feel, performance, and custom data drill down features that the previous solution lacked.
Cube.js allowed them to save 14 weeks of backend engineering and go to market time.
