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

Pros
The associative searching and filtering capability is a unique feature among other BI tools, and one does not need to deeply understand the underlying data.The most valuable feature is flexibility.The most valuable feature is the user experience.The most valuable feature is the interface for the end-user.Qlik Sense makes it very easy to build interactive presentations for meetings.The most valuable feature is the drag-and-drop reporting.Allowing the users to be able to take snapshots and create their own story without ever leaving the application is a very good feature.The integration with R & Python for predictive modeling, and possibly machine learning in the future, is very valuable.

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
There is an inability to effectively manage (pre)caching (scheduling, assigning for respective user groups, etc), especially without community extensions or uour own development.Performing data transformations required a lot of programming, which is something that should be made easier.I would like to have the ability to better customize the visuals including changing fonts, sizing, colors, axes, and titles.We want the next version of this solution to be cloud-based so that each user can access it from anywhere in the world with their phone, tablet, or computer without a VPN connection.It would be nice to have more native features from QlikView built into Qlik Sense.Report generation without the need for NPrinting, which has limited capabilities anyway, would be an improvement.Some of the charts are still a bit basic and screen rendering on different sized monitors can be an issue.As we are a very process-oriented company, we would like to see more extensions maintained from Qlik, because it's a huge budget problem to choose the right one.

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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.Costs are a little high on the license/token side. However, if you look at the TCO, it is not too bad, particularly against Power BI.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.
