Quotes From Members Comparing QlikView vs TIBCO Spotfire

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.The search feature: ability to see the related data.

Cons
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.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.Better source data connectors.

Print capability and trigger-based events.Compared to competitors, the UI is quite dated.The number of charts available out of the box in Spotfire can be enhanced.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

The Tibco sales teams have been very difficult to work with - ignoring requests, misrepresenting level of demand, etc.

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
