QlikView Review

It instantly loads huge amounts of data and immediately displays the relationship - both correlation and absence of correlation - between the data.

Valuable Features

  • Instant loading of huge amount of data and immediate display of relationship (both correlation and absence of correlation) between data
  • RAD development methodology adoption for QlikView projects
  • Set analysis function for simultaneous display of alternative aggregation sets

Room for Improvement

The backend (scripting) needs improvement to be more like a real ETL BI tool. The script editor is, in my opinion, no more than a basic scripting editor with too-limited debugging features.

Use of Solution

I have been using it for five years (still today).

Deployment Issues

I have not had any issues with deployment, stability or scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is very good.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward.

Implementation Team

We usually implement in-house, but we also rely on external resources.

Other Solutions Considered

We are currently using two different BI solutions for our customers: Business Objects and QlikView.

QlikView lets our customers develop data analysis projects independently with a little initial training.

Other Advice

Only a recommendation in order to assure the growth of a project with minimum impact on the previous deployed portion: As much as possible, try to solve data complexity on the backend side (where the logic is easily documentable), rather than in the front-end using only analytic functions.
