Improvements to My Organization

N/A. We are consultants.

Room for Improvement

Qlik has launched another product, Qlik Sense to improve ease of use for the end user. The product lacks PDF exporting, mapping – which costs extra - and reporting features. Also, it turns the data into QVD format that is not accessible by other software.

Use of Solution

We have been using QlikView for five years. We have been a partner for five years as well. We have successfully completed seven QlikView projects.

Deployment Issues

I did not encounter any issues with deployment, stability or scalability. It is quite easy to install, configure and deploy.

Customer Service and Technical Support

QlikView has a very good developer community where you can find support from the other developers.

Previous Solutions

We usually position this product for departmental and fast-win solutions. When you’re an expert in this product, it’s quite easy to develop well-functioning and complex dashboards.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was quite easy.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

QlikView has CAL and Document CAL licencing. It’s quite cost-effective when lots of end users use several reports like once a month.

Other Advice

If you plan to develop dashboards and want the end users to further develop the dashboards, it requires some IT skills. If the end users should develop their own reports, Qlik Sense should be chosen.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: My company is a Qlik partner.
