Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We can generate various graphs, various reports and we can mainly use it for dashboard related things. We can create a dashboard with live data and we can make decisions based on this information,""This solution has improved our organization by making our analysis results available to customers.""The drag-and-drop dashboard builder is an intuitive interface for building dashboards from source reports.""The drag and drop UI has been the most useful to me.""All the necessary information is available to everyone in real time.""The UI is very easy to use, with drag and drop self-service analytics.""The most valuable features are the mobility and web integration.""This tool not only allows for consumption of the data in a visual way, but also allows the user to modify the question to get new answers."

More Qlik Sense Pros »

"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."

More QlikView Pros »

Cons
"I would like for it to be more of a plug and play with all of the tools and sources. It would make it much easier to use.""A valuable improvement for this solution would be the enabling of us to host dashboards for our customers.""This solution would be improved by adding some Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) components that are easier to interpret and design.""The only thing I would say that comes up is that sometimes it can be a bit buggy.""The next version should include more standard integrations.""Advanced graphs or visualizations must be in the built-in product, instead of building with open API extensions or mashups.""I would like to have support for table formats without having to use an extension.""The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system."

More Qlik Sense Cons »

"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
"Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.""Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.""QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.""Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.""The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license."

More Qlik Sense Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."

Comparison Review
Guillermo (Bill) Cabiro
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 »
