What needs 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.

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.

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.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was quite easy.

What's my experience with 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.

What other advice do I have?

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.
