QlikView Review

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

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped 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

What needs improvement?

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