We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Great capability, performance, flexibility, visuals, and the solution is also very cost effective."
"I am looking forward to testing their full graphics that are available, as they looked very interesting in the demo."
"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."
"Would like the ability to be able to benchmark."
"There should be a better or an easier way to establish that connection to external sources."
"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."
"14,000 Pounds per year for licensing."
"I am still using the two-week trial, but at first sight, the price is reasonable."
