"The new Application Design option offers lots of customization options by being able to script in Typescript (similar to Javascript).""All of the modules that we used to have separately in our on-premises solution are now integrated into one platform.""The Smart Predict, Smart Insights, and Smart Discovery predictive analysis features are quite good.""The most valuable features are the visualization and user-friendliness.""The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature.

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 »

"There should be more features for the time series charts.""I would like to see reporting to the Analytics cloud directly.""Some of the standard visualizations, such as a speedometer or a goal chart, are not there and should be added.""We are currently working on connectivity with S/4HANA, but we would like to have better connectivity with our legacy systems.""Statistical analysis should be a bit more profound than it is.""SAP Analytics cloud needs better exporting options.""There is no direct connector from SAP to Redshift, so we are required to use a third-party product that was recommended by SAP.""When it comes to planning there is a concern about the ability to match the exact requirements of the customer with what the product offers."

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 »

"It is a bit expensive, but really worth it, especially if you are already using other SAP tools.""It is not the most expensive one. You have to do the cost-of-ownership analysis and take a lot of things into consideration to come up with the conclusion that it is cheaper or not, but its price is reasonable. It provides value for money.""It's quite expensive and costs a lot to maintain, especially with licensing."
