"There is room for improvement in the learning curve when getting started, but training resources have been growing.""Currently, we are not very happy with the iPad or iPhone app because it is not working as we want.""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.""Some of the charts are still a bit basic and screen rendering on different sized monitors can be an issue.""Report generation without the need for NPrinting, which has limited capabilities anyway, would be an improvement.""It would be nice to have more native features from QlikView built into Qlik Sense.""We want the next version of this solution to be cloud-based so that each user can access it from anywhere in the world with their phone, tablet, or computer without a VPN connection.""I would like to have the ability to better customize the visuals including changing fonts, sizing, colors, axes, and titles."

"Our licensing cost is approximately $50,000.00 per year."

More IBM Planning Analytics Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.""The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license.""For on-premise enterprise users, a number of additional features come at a premium cost."
