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.

I like the predictive features of SAP. It's easy to use tools for an end-user.It integrates with third-party applications such as Google Drive and Excel,One feature I've found most valuable is discovery.Planning is the most valuable feature of the product because it's integrated and that means we don't need to rely on an independent planning environment.The user interface is quite good for developing reports out of models.Provides rich features for developing automated reports and dashboards.The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. We haven't tried all of the features yet. The graphing and the ease of using the analytics tools have been great. It's all drag and drop; you don't need to code anything.The most valuable features are the visualization and user-friendliness.

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.

Pricing is fine for the BI license, but when it comes to client license, that fee is a bit high.Currently only one data modeler can work at a time.Improvements are coming quarterly whereas previously it was on a monthly basis.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.There is no direct connector from SAP to Redshift, so we are required to use a third-party product that was recommended by SAP.SAP Analytics cloud needs better exporting options.Statistical analysis should be a bit more profound than it is.We are currently working on connectivity with S/4HANA, but we would like to have better connectivity with our legacy systems.

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.

It is a bit expensive, but really worth it, especially if you are already using other SAP tools.
