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

Pros
On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.It's pretty easy to deploy.The initial setup is not very complex.You can do a lot of things on the back end which are not possible in the other solutions on the market.I had the option to prepare data myself instead of always having to depend on the data team.Scripting as per a customer's need, which is a pretty cool feature and not available in other tools.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.

We used it pretty heavily in gathering data, which goes to our VPs. They are able to base their next revenue planning based on this metric. 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.R and automation services.One of the main features is integrated statistical analysis.Data discovery is very simple.

Cons
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.I would want them to have more options as a user. It would be nice for them to create their own dashboards and add fields.The pricing is high.It needs work with visualization.Needs improvement with UI transparency.More/newer visualisation components need to be added.Installation and deployment could be made easier and quicker.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.

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.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
It is not very expensive. I think it it is on par with other similar products on the market.The pricing is too high compared to the other solutions on the market.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.

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