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.We have found the use of AI to be the most valuable feature.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.The most valuable features are the mobility and web integration.The UI is very easy to use, with drag and drop self-service analytics.All the necessary information is available to everyone in real time.The drag and drop UI has been the most useful to me.The drag-and-drop dashboard builder is an intuitive interface for building dashboards from source reports.

So, it has been invaluable.The ability to connect to many different data sources is one of the key features. The other would then be the different ways in which that data can be visualized.

Cons
Currently, we are not very happy with the iPad or iPhone app because it is not working as we want.There is room for improvement in the learning curve when getting started, but training resources have been growing.The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system.I would like to have support for table formats without having to use an extension.Advanced graphs or visualizations must be in the built-in product, instead of building with open API extensions or mashups.The next version should include more standard integrations.The only thing I would say that comes up is that sometimes it can be a bit buggy.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.

We would like an easier way to get the product to the cloud. Right now, we have the on-premise version, and we would like to find a way to make it easier to migrate it over to the cloud.I would like more easy-to-implement analytical algorithms. At the moment they include things like forecasts and regressions. They need to add a lot more of these types of things to the product because not everyone is a data scientist.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Qlik Sense pricing and licensing is like that of QlikView. It's on the high side for a small company, but it’s competitive among its peers. Use of licenses (referred to as tokens) is a bit confusing. There is a login access pass for infrequent or anonymous access.
