QlikView Review
Dashboards are easy to build. It needs built-in monitoring of ETLs.

Valuable Features:

  • Ease of use for end user
  • Analytical reporting
  • Easy-to-build dashboards
  • Self-service reporting
  • Speedy deployment

Improvements to My Organization:

The PoC for a new business area was not covered by the management reporting platform (controlling of IT processes).

  • Built-in monitoring of ETLs (there was no advanced tool for monitoring, planning and evaluation ETLs), I work with SAP BW (i.e. RSMO, RSPCM, ST13 transactions), of course there was an option to have additional expert tool but for a lot of additional money
  • Formatted reporting (PDF and export to Excel) - if necessary compile aggregate export to PDF document was not allowed to draw and do parameterized output compile or schedule it as a job with an appropriate distribution to the responsible user group, custom printing to PDF or Excel did not correspond to reality/original

Room for Improvement:

  • Built-in monitoring of ETLs
  • Formatted reporting
  • Print to PDF
  • Export to Excel

Use of Solution:

I have used it for half a year.

Deployment Issues:

I had integration issues with SAP BW.

Technical Support:

Technical support is very good.

Previous Solutions:

IBM Cognos was the original MIS platform. Within QV, there are better analytical reporting features.

Implementation Team:

We implemented it in-house with some external support.


ROI is very long, > 5 year estimation.

Other Advice:

Assess the possibilities, advantages and disadvantages of the product as a whole with regard to the general characteristics of MIS systems and considering plans to use a management reporting platform across the enterprise.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
