QlikView Review

It allows us to create easily accessible what-if scenarios for decision making.

What is most valuable?

I use QlikView to combine data from different sources in the absence of an EDW and build our analytical dashboards.

How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to improve our analytical abilities, and KPI and data presentation, in addition to creating easily accessible what-if scenarios for decision making.

What needs improvement?

The security features in QlikView are not yet mature: very complex to define permissions in a dashboard (based on data/sheets).

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using QlikView for the past five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

QlikView relies heavily on memory. It requires good servers and continuous upgrades and maintenance for sustaining good performance.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Most solutions like SAS, Tableau and others require a fully-fledged data warehouse (EDW), and IT support and intervention at all times for creating dashboards. QlikView is flexible and allows users to create their own reports in a relatively short time.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was supported by the company and was not very complex.

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

Licensing in QlikView is a bit expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the QlikView tool for its flexibility and good data visualization and presentation.
