Qlik Sense Review

Flexible data loading, in-memory processing, and Set Analysis are key for us


How has it helped my organization?

It gives a great overview of our assets and commitments and makes cash flow control much easier.

What is most valuable?

The product has many great features like easy and fast implementation, flexible data loading, and in-memory processing, but the Set Analysis is what I think is the most valuable. It makes the product very powerful.

What needs improvement?

  • Branding is not the product's strongest point. More control over the presentation colors would be great.
  • A basic printing function would also be good.
  • Easy connection to external tools like R Server would be nice.  

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, I have good control over the server the product is running on.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not used Qlik tech support. I use the reseller.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No, we did not have previous solution (except Excel).

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was done by a consultant.

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

I believe pricing is similar to other products in the same category, if you have it on-premise.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Tableau, Power BI, SSAS, Targit, and some open-source projects like BIRT and Jaspersoft.

What other advice do I have?

I lean toward self-service BI tools. Look at the tools with the data you have, where you can store it, and how easily you can get local support and community support.
