Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The language support is very good.""Our Qlikview applications help us to get a good idea of our Client Base Performance and assist us in the decision making for Seasonal Specials. On the other hand QlikView helps us to get a grasp on our Suppliers and helps us to negotiate pricing with them.""The user interface and dashboards are very good.""Easy to analyze data by click-through.""On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL."

Cons
"There is no automation or drag and drop functionality.""It would be nice if QlikView could be plugged in into the company's website or an online portal such as QlikSense is capable of. There are ways around but it takes enormous time to develop.""The solution is quite costly.""The user interface is old.""If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlik view's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve."

More QlikView Cons »

"It's difficult to set up initially, and their billing model is also a bit complicated.""There are a lot of competitive products that are doing better than what Splunk is doing on the analytics side.""Our two main complaints are about the difficulty of the initial setup and the licensing model.""The solution has a high learning curve for users. It's a little complicated when you're trying to figure out all the features and what they do.""This is a costly solution.""It could be more user friendly, in terms of the end-user experience.""I'd say I am happy with the technical support, not elated. They provide great support, but sometimes they don't have the answers that I need.""In terms of the interface, it could include some improvements for the look and feel."

More Splunk Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The setup costs for QlikView are fair as are the yearly maintenance fees. The licensing becomes a bit more expensive and requires some planning for onboarding."

More QlikView Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think that most of the monitoring solutions are expensive.""I think that most of the log analytics solutions are expensive and I'm not sure if it's worth it.""Our customers often complain that the price of Splunk is too high.""Licensing is a yearly, one-time cost.""The price is comparable.""The pricing model is expensive and a nightmare based on the amount of data.""The solution is a little expensive.""It is economical than other solutions."

Comparison Review
Guillermo (Bill) Cabiro
I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics. In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not. Tableau on the other hand is a lot easier to use for developers, analysts or power users who need to connect, manipulate and visualize data rather quickly. While this makes Tableau a better fit for the more analytical crowd, it may not be as appealing or intuitive to the regular or casual business users as QlikView is. Tableau has full pivot, drag & drop and drill down capabilities that are great for developers or power users. They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by… Read more »
