Pros
Tech support is very helpful.My primary use is for view of the dashboard.It ingegrates nicely with Office 365.It is a powerful tool that helps our data analysis processes.It's user-friendly and provides data abstracting capabilities.

On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.It's pretty easy to deploy.The initial setup is not very complex.You can do a lot of things on the back end which are not possible in the other solutions on the market.I had the option to prepare data myself instead of always having to depend on the data team.Scripting as per a customer's need, which is a pretty cool feature and not available in other tools.The in-memory feature gives us better insight. It's also easy to drill down into the information and select information.Associative model - no more cubes.

Cons
We did have some issues building the Microsoft blog.Powerpoints are not available in the report server.The report server feature is quite limited.It would be nice to use other connectors to link with the data.The DAX features need some improvement. It's not as easy as Excel. They need more DAX formulas.The reporting part of Microsoft BI is rather limited compared to other reporting tools.It should be easier to use when there are multiple system sources.The look is simple, and could be a little more professional.

If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlik view's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve.I would want them to have more options as a user. It would be nice for them to create their own dashboards and add fields.The pricing is high.It needs work with visualization.Needs improvement with UI transparency.More/newer visualisation components need to be added.Installation and deployment could be made easier and quicker.For me, it is important to have a mix, what is the "view" and what is the "sense", Qlik Sense. They have two tools, but for me it is important to have only one tool, which combines the functions that we have from one side and the other side.

Pricing and Cost Advice
No comment on pricing.It is a cheap solution for our needs.No comment.It is free.It is part of our Office 365 license.The costs are small and the benefits are high.The Report Server is pretty expensive on-premise. But as long companies are happy to use the cloud version, that's very cost effective.Pricing, that's where Microsoft beats Tableau. It is priced much cheaper.

It is not very expensive. I think it it is on par with other similar products on the market.The pricing is too high compared to the other solutions on the market.Qlik is fairly high in terms of pricing.QlikView pricing and licensing is on the high side for a small sized company, but it's competitive among its peers.Pricing is a bit too high and I think licenses should be unlimited.
