Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

Cons
"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."

More QlikView Cons »

"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."

More XLCubed Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More QlikView Pricing and Cost Advice »

"14,000 Pounds per year for licensing.""I am still using the two-week trial, but at first sight, the price is reasonable."

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 Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not.

Overview

QlikView is a Business Intelligence tool that allows you to keep tabs on all of your business-related information in a clean, clear, and easy to access database that is intuitive to build and simple to navigate. It is ideal for business owners who wish to improve overall output by creating the most productive system possible.

XLCubed is an add-in tool for Microsoft Excel that allows you to point to analysis and services cubes or any other relational databases so that you can create ad-hoc analysis, reporting and even dashboards that can be published to the web with a single click. Once you put items on the web, the environments are the same, which is really cool because the user interactivity and use of the report on the web and in Microsoft Excel is the same.
