We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It has provided customer purchase patterns and great visualization.This solution has improved our ability in making decisions and explaining data.I like the downloadable visualizations a lot. I think that they give the user a very nice starting point in creating awesome dashboards, with the right way to tell their data story.If you are not very technical this tool could be very useful.The feature I find most valuable is the ability to publish Power Bi reports, using an embedded link, directly onto a website.There was a lot of manual work involved with Excel, whereas once we moved on to Microsoft Power BI, it was a cleaner dashboard and it was faster too.The uploading of information is very easy, as you just use an Excel sheet to start work right away and obtain the benefits of Power BI.Because this solution is very easy, and very visual, you can have results in minutes.

On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.This is a very cool application with endless options of creativity and visuals.This solution has simplified getting to and understanding our data, no matter where it is housed.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.

Cons
This solution needs integration with SAS and more deep analysis functionality.We would like to have better SQL support for queries.Some kind of expression wizard, where the user can build a complex expression without any knowledge of DAX, can be a good addition to the product.Adding paginated reports to this tool could be of great help for users who want to move away from SSRS.I would like to see Machine Learning for Power Bi Pro users or an intermediate license to enable Machine Learning if you don't have access to a Premium account.I think because I'm moving more into RPA, I'd definitely like to see integration across the RPA, Power BI, or Tableau platforms, because that integration could then make automation and mundane reporting much faster.I would like to see the product offer more graphics to impact different audiences.I would like to see a feature that connects with a Machine Learning platform like a RapidMiner or Azure Machine Learning Studio. It would be great to have a Machine Learning application link to connect.

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 really wish the application was easier to use in the development phase.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of a feature that would allow us to add a common library of (our) commands used in load scripts and expressions, so with a keyword, we would get a drop down to select the command we are looking for, as opposed to the generic help.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.
