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

Pros
We do you use Oracle support. We've been paying for an Oracle support subscription for four or five years, and not one ticket has ever been logged. When I came in, I've encouraged the team to ask Oracle questions. They do get back quite quickly. Their support is good. Working with our account managers, if I need to escalate anything, I can speak to them and they escalate the call. I've got that ecosystem working quite well. That does work for us.The most valuable feature is the openness of the solution. It helps us integrate some of our clients.I think having the conformed structures makes it a lot easier for end users and pulling reports together.The scalability of the product is good.It's easy to use for business analysts.Can utilize SQL queries to generate reports directly.It mostly supports enterprise level data. We have millions of records on a daily basis.It can be used with any type of data models, such as relational lines and dimensional lines.

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
They should develop greater visualization because their visualization isn't industry leading at the moment. The way you pull the data and see the data compared to other platforms, they're lagging a little bit behind. Also, their cost. I've got Oracle account managers trying to persuade me every day to purchase these licenses. Once you purchase OBIEE, then you have to purchase the virtualization and then you have to purchase the mobile license to operate on the mobile. It's really expensive.In terms of tech support, we have our own technicians. But, we did register for their help. When we register a call, it takes time for them to respond to us.This solution is weak in the data science perspective. I have past data science experience. And, I find that there is a lot of room for improvement in terms of incorporating more advanced statistical modeling into the product.It is not a good product for data visualization.Its functionality is lacking.When a large number of queries are running at the same time, the report fails.It crashes when many people login simultaneously.While it is a user-friendly, data-driven tool, the data modeling should be easier to use.

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
The pricing we negotiated with Oracle. But, I do not have details.I think to spread this across an enterprise will be a significant investment.Be prepared to spend a lot of time and money.It is high.It's expensive.

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.
