Qlik Sense makes it very easy to build interactive presentations for meetings.The most valuable feature is the drag-and-drop reporting.Allowing the users to be able to take snapshots and create their own story without ever leaving the application is a very good feature.The integration with R & Python for predictive modeling, and possibly machine learning in the future, is very valuable.The most valuable feature of QlikSense is that you can capture the data without modifying it and then perform the ETL (extract, transform, and load) process.We have found the use of AI to be the most valuable feature.This tool not only allows for consumption of the data in a visual way, but also allows the user to modify the question to get new answers.The most valuable features are the mobility and web integration.

Cons
Having a kind of wizard that would help you when you are typing your search would make it easier and quicker to refine your search, and ultimately find what you are looking for.This solution should allow the user to combine two indices into one graph.

It would be nice to have more native features from QlikView built into Qlik Sense.Report generation without the need for NPrinting, which has limited capabilities anyway, would be an improvement.Some of the charts are still a bit basic and screen rendering on different sized monitors can be an issue.As we are a very process-oriented company, we would like to see more extensions maintained from Qlik, because it's a huge budget problem to choose the right one.Currently, we are not very happy with the iPad or iPhone app because it is not working as we want.There is room for improvement in the learning curve when getting started, but training resources have been growing.The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system.I would like to have support for table formats without having to use an extension.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.Costs are a little high on the license/token side. However, if you look at the TCO, it is not too bad, particularly against Power BI.Know your needs when going into the purchasing decision.The costs can initially become quite high. Make sure you have a clear understanding of who will truly use the product as opposed to someone that will simply receive the end report.The new licensing model is much better.
