We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution has allowed us to become a top-class competitor among other consulting companies."
"It's user-friendly, also the MTDI cube is a very good approach, as it helps you to use the pre-format instead of using the standard objects from the schema of MicroStrategy."
"This solution is the most scalable BI platform in the world."
"The solution has excellent features available on mobile."
"The technical support is quite good."
"I haven't come across any bugs."
"The dashboard features and functionalities that come through the MicroStrategy Suite are the most valuable. It can be used by end users with minimum knowledge of the product. They can run a report or create a dashboard on their phones, which is kind of cool."
"It is very stable."
"This solution has simplified getting to and understanding our data, no matter where it is housed."
"This is a very cool application with endless options of creativity and visuals."
"The language support is very good."
"Our Qlikview applications help us to get a good idea of our Client Base Performance and assist us in the decision making for Seasonal Specials. On the other hand QlikView helps us to get a grasp on our Suppliers and helps us to negotiate pricing with them."
"The user interface and dashboards are very good."
"Easy to analyze data by click-through."
"On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL."
"I would like to see a single standalone application to control everything from the administration perspective, and also to develop new applications."
"In the developer, there are things that you able to do in a document or a report that you are not able to do in the Dossier."
"They need to do a better job In its ability to allow end users to produce their own reports, metrics, and self-service business intelligence."
"The solution lacks good visualization. They should work on the user interface to make it more slick and modern."
"The solution's reports are not very flexible."
"They should provide more tutorials and include some project files."
"It crashes multiple times for even small changes that I make on the fly in the dashboard. After doing all the necessary changes, the MicroStrategy desktop or even the web version kicks the users out, and all the changes are lost. This functionality is buggy in MicroStrategy. It is hard to keep track of all the changes that I have done before. I don't want to make copies of each change that I have made because I would end up creating a hundred dashboards. It is not feasible in a real environment. I haven't worked on integrating MicroStrategy with the cloud. I am not sure how it behaves in the cloud, but I have heard from a few of my friends that there are some hiccups when you kind of sync to the cloud through MicroStrategy."
"They should give proper industry-based tutorials so that one can learn it easily and implement it based on the requirements. They should give more MMP files so that we can import a whole project altogether and learn from that project."
"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 really wish the application was easier to use in the development phase."
"There is no automation or drag and drop functionality."
"It would be nice if QlikView could be plugged in into the company's website or an online portal such as QlikSense is capable of. There are ways around but it takes enormous time to develop."
"The solution is quite costly."
"The user interface is old."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a license with packages, and there are additional costs for extra components."
"We have one of the best pricing available, but we can't disclose that information."
"The pricing is fair."
"They can improve its licensing. It is a bit expensive as compared to Microsoft and other tools."
"They offer yearly as well as perpetual licenses."
"The setup costs for QlikView are fair as are the yearly maintenance fees. The licensing becomes a bit more expensive and requires some planning for onboarding."
I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics. In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. 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 Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not. Tableau on the other hand is a lot easier to use for developers, analysts or power users who need to connect, manipulate and visualize data rather quickly. While this makes Tableau a better fit for the more analytical crowd, it may not be as appealing or intuitive to the regular or casual business users as QlikView is. Tableau has full pivot, drag & drop and drill down capabilities that are great for developers or power users. They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by… Read more »
