I would like to see more types of visual elements and better configuration options for additional flexibility when developing charts.It needs continued improvement on its visualizations and content customization.I would like to more easily themed environments.I wish the product had the ability for slightly more customization. The out-of-the box charts and visualizations are fantastic, but I want to be able to tweak it without having to add outside extensions and widgets.Data modelling automation needs improvement.There are some tools like Alteryx, which are used for data preparation. These features can be built into Qlik to make the process smoother.Better searching capabilities would be a nice addition.There are occasional stability problems, but Qlik support is excellent at correcting anything that arises.

Free and commercial versions are available.

Read more »

Know your needs when going into the purchasing decision.The costs can initially become quite high. Make sure you have a clear understanding of who will truly use the product as opposed to someone that will simply receive the end report.The new licensing model is much better.Qlik Sense pricing and licensing is like that of QlikView. It's on the high side for a small company, but it’s competitive among its peers. Use of licenses (referred to as tokens) is a bit confusing. There is a login access pass for infrequent or anonymous access.For personal use, the desktop version of Qlik Sense is absolutely free, and you can share visualizations with others and to a personal cloud space, though limited with storage space.I believe pricing is similar to other products in the same category, if you have it on-premise.Currently, our ROI is clear and concise decision-making. This timely addition will easily add $15 million to our bottom line in 2017.You will spend more time on educating your staff than licensing the product.
