Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We have found the use of AI to be the most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature of QlikSense is that you can capture the data without modifying it and then perform the ETL (extract, transform, and load) process.""The integration with R & Python for predictive modeling, and possibly machine learning in the future, is very valuable.""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 most valuable feature is the drag-and-drop reporting.""Qlik Sense makes it very easy to build interactive presentations for meetings.""The most valuable feature is the interface for the end-user.""The most valuable feature is the user experience."

More Qlik Sense Pros »

"From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic.""The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it.""The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board."

Cons
"There is room for improvement in the learning curve when getting started, but training resources have been growing.""Currently, we are not very happy with the iPad or iPhone app because it is not working as we want.""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.""Some of the charts are still a bit basic and screen rendering on different sized monitors can be an issue.""Report generation without the need for NPrinting, which has limited capabilities anyway, would be an improvement.""It would be nice to have more native features from QlikView built into Qlik Sense.""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.""I would like to have the ability to better customize the visuals including changing fonts, sizing, colors, axes, and titles."

More Qlik Sense Cons »

"The design of the UI could be improved.""When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation.""Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""For on-premise enterprise users, a number of additional features come at a premium cost."
