Qlik Sense Review

Provides code compatibility with QlikView.

What is most valuable?

  • Great code compatibility with existing QlikView product.
  • Intuitive interface makes it easy to dive in.

How has it helped my organization?

Allowed us to consolidate many diverse data sets into a single customer view.

What needs improvement?

  • Making it as user friendly as possible

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Qlik Sense for a relatively short time, about six months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

As we were using QlikView already, when Qlik Sense came out, the main issue was how to port from QlikView to Qlik Sense, and whether it was indeed necessary

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any stability issues at all.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not encounter any scalability issues at all.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I have not had any direct contact with customer service but the online community is very active and helpful.

Technical Support:

Unsure; technical support is handled by our administrator.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used QlikView (and still use it for some of our internal users).

How was the initial setup?

Having had familiarity with QlikView for a few years already, initial setup was straightforward to get to grips with the basics of Qlik Sense; other areas, like connecting to data sources, will need some investigation to get to grips with when I have the time.

What about the implementation team?

I had a bit of mentoring early on by a now-luminary of Qlik but I am essentially self-taught; all in-house development.

What was our ROI?

I do not know; ROI is very hard to quantify.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing is handled by our administrator.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we did not evaluate other options. We already had QlikView, so it was a natural addition to that.

What other advice do I have?

Highly recommended; be prepared to immerse yourself in it when you start off.
