Quotes From Members Comparing QlikView vs Tableau

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Scripting as per a customer's need, which is a pretty cool feature and not available in other tools.On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.The in-memory feature gives us better insight. It's also easy to drill down into the information and select information.Associative model - no more cubes.Its ability to build, very quickly, very complicated models.A well designed app brings freedom of inquiry to meetings, allowing me to answer questions in real time and this has transformed progress and outputs of our monthly group meeting.E-T-L, The Extract, Transform, and Loading capabilities of QlikView make it a highly sophisticated self-service business intelligence tool for developers and analysts.Data transforming with scripting, and the associative model that lets users browse data in an easy way, are the most valuable features.

It's the ease of use. It is also a self-service tool so it decreases the burden on having centralized IT-type teams or developers.It provides business users with a tool, so they are not dependent on IT.Analysis is now more visual than in the past.The most important feature is the tool is very easy to use. This makes it simple to introduce it to CxOs. After a rapid demo, they are usual impressed by the results shown, because it has such a rare simplicity.It has made the reporting stage simple and enabled us to focus mainly on the ETL partIt provides supporting data for critical policy and operational changesIt is easy to adapt visualizers to have interactive conversations among decision-makers.​Data is easily understood at all levels of the company.

Cons
Installation and deployment could be made easier and quicker.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.For me, it is important to have a mix, what is the "view" and what is the "sense", Qlik Sense. They have two tools, but for me it is important to have only one tool, which combines the functions that we have from one side and the other side.Although Qliktech's road map clearly states that QlikView has a long way to go, most of the R&D effort seems to be benefiting Qlik Sense.Improvement in collaboration, between that and publishing of reports and publishing of models.Syntax editor needs some work, it's frustrating to have valid syntax being flagged as incorrect.The user interface and ease of use takes a bit of a learning curve to pick up.Error handling.

It needs a little bit more advanced modeling. I would like to see functionality like Cognos has in the Framework Manager.Bursting email is needed to deliver the reports to many people in their inboxes and this functionality is not provided by Tableau.It needs more ETL capabilities, to be able to address the end-to-end BI need.The ability to use it on MAC machines. As far as I know, this is not possible.​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.If they could add global filters in the stories, more chart types, and default colours, it would help.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Qlik is fairly high in terms of pricing.QlikView pricing and licensing is on the high side for a small sized company, but it's competitive among its peers.Pricing is a bit too high and I think licenses should be unlimited.

Read more »

The cost is high.Deployment of dashboards to viewers and unit supervisors can be prohibitively expensive.Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.I wish there was more of a subscription model with the pricing when it comes to Tableau, so you can get all the latest version upgrades/features if you pay monthly/annually.Tableau can be costly (but this can be indefinable, such as user experience vs. cheaper etc.)Buy 50 at a time. Project your use base every three months, and project your requirements forward.Paying for users you never setup or buying expensive desktop licenses for users who can solve their users with web editing on the server are the two biggest expenses.

I work in the area of data analytics and data management from a solutions standpoint.
From my experience on Data Visualization Tools and the their utilities from the customers standpoint I would like to mention the following key criteria not in the order of importance which varies from customer to customer(these are not necessarily all the criteria but are certainly among the important ones):
1.  Ease of use, ie does not require an IT guy to help operate all the time 2. Easy to deploy 3. Integration with portals or standalone 4. The user profiles: Who are the users in terms of their hierarchy in the org and their roles/responsibilities within the org? How do they best visualize their data? Where do they best visualize their data?-Mobile/desktop/conf room/tablets/ and so on. 5. How does the tool integrate with the data sources and how many different types of data sources do they support? Of course not all customers have a large number of data sources but the tool is likely to satisfy a majority of customers if it has good integration capability. 6. How does it work with cloud based apps of the customer? 7. Security of distributed reports/dashboards and data. 8. The tool's ability to support data "type" identification. 9. Speed 10. Types of reports/visualization/ etc
