We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It is solid and stable."
"The common metadata environment means that the entire organisation has the same definition of core measures rather than these being derived in spreadsheets or specific reports."
"The solution's user security is extremely effective. You can profile very well. All the users and all the functionality is protected and that includes information and data segregation."
"It provides flexibility for creating reports. It is very good for creating highly-complex reports. I like this solution because when I buy BusinessObjects, it comes with many components, such as reporting, dashboard, and data visualization tools. Its performance is good. It is running on top of SAP BW and SAP HANA."
"It is stable and robust. It has pretty direct integration with SAP ERP. It is easy to use."
"The setup is pretty easy. It's not hard at all."
"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."
"Over the years, the product tends to rename and rebrand itself and change its direction. This is a deficit of the solution."
"This solution is complex to configure and administer."
"The self-service area, or dashboard, needs some improvement. While the reporting itself is great, the dashboard and Analytics Cloud are not user friendly."
"Its data visualization tool is not as good as Power BI and Tableau. Currently, for data visualization, you need to spend more money to buy another solution such as Power BI or Tableau. It is also very hard to integrate it with other third-party solutions. Its integration with other solutions should be improved."
"Its price should be better. It is expensive and not cost-effective. It should also be improved in terms of end-user experience. It requires further improvements for usability and ease of use. It should have more dashboarding metrics and much faster integration with ERP so that when you double click, you can instantly see the scenario-based result."
"The UI could be updated a bit."
"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."
"Its price is fair."
"It is not cost-effective. It is expensive."
