"This solution has simplified getting to and understanding our data, no matter where it is housed."
"This is a very cool application with endless options of creativity and visuals."
"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."
"The most valuable features are data discovery and fine visualizations."
"This solution has transformed us from an Excel reporting environment to one of visual exploration."
"Good data flow and management."
"The most valuable feature is the interface, which is user-friendly and intuitive."
"The action feature which Tableau has is very useful for us. If we click on one visualization, it will pass the value to another visualization. That interactivity within different visualizations is the most valuable feature of Tableau."
"Data is easily understood at all levels of the company."
"Business insights are shared across various departments."
"Its ease of use and ability to convert drag and drop gestures into queries."
"This solution would be improved with the inclusion of a feature that would allow us to add a common library of (our) commands used in load scripts and expressions, so with a keyword, we would get a drop down to select the command we are looking for, as opposed to the generic help."
"I really wish the application was easier to use in the development phase."
"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."
"The SQL programming functionality needs to be improved."
"I would like Tableau to handle geospatial data better in terms of multiple layers and shapefiles."
"Requires a lot of user training."
"The charts in Tableau are quite limited."
"The pricing is a bit higher than the competition. They'll need to lower it to stay competitive."
"Conditional formatting could be an interesting feature to provide to final users."
"The data preparation/blending options are very basic. They could be improved."
"Tableau is a company that does not respect partners."
"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."
"Be careful with the Tableau Viewer's licenses, and stay with the right number of users."
"The company chose to purchase a creator license for me, which was $70. With that license, you can also be an administrator. We also have 20-25 extra licenses and they cost around $20-$35 each. Those are for normal users who will be viewing the dashboards. Those are monthly charges."
"Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple."
"ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool."
"The cost of the solution should be improved."
"It is reasonable and cheap as compared to other major tools. It has a good price, and people go for it because of its pricing."
"Pricing is not bad. It's competitive."
"At $70 per month, I think the price is a bit scary. I have a small consulting firm in Ghana, working in about 15 different African countries, and when it comes to our part of the world, $70 a month is a lot of money for software."
