How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

The only thing I would say that comes up is that sometimes it can be a bit buggy. The product updates that come out are fairly regular, which is always nice, but getting… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used QlikView before (and still have some reports on this). We changed when Qlik ran a good promotion to get people to switch. I had used the product before and knew… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would say when you start with this tool, take the time to prepare the data first before creating reports and showing the business (especially if you are the only one… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate any other options as the promotion on getting Qlik Sense whilst being a QlikView customer was too good.

What is most valuable?

This is amazing product takes the super features of QlikView ETL capabilities to a whole new level with its new drag and drop feature, and extension capabilities derived from the robust Qlik API.

How has it helped my organization?

As a Qlik consultant, I have been using QlikView to design management dashboards but with Qlik Sense it offers more.

What needs improvement?

None at the moment. Qlik Sense for me combines the power of QlikView and the ease of use of Tableau.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Qlik Sense pricing and licensing is like that of QlikView. It's on the high side for a small company, but it’s competitive among its peers. Use of licenses (referred to as tokens) is a bit confusing… more»

What other advice do I have?

Invest in memory and RAM for the PC or server you intend to use Qlik Sense on. Ensure you have all the necessary resources and connectors installed for proprietary databases as well, if you are keen… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As a consultant in the area of business intelligence and data analytics, I have had to personally evaluate Qlik Sense against other self-service BI tools such as Tableau, Power BI, and MicroStrategy.

What is most valuable?

We can generate various graphs, various reports and we can mainly use it for dashboard related things. We can create a dashboard with live data and we can make decisions based on this information.

What needs improvement?

I would like for it to be more of a plug and play with all of the tools and sources. It would make it much easier to use. It should take less time to margin my reports and they should have reusability of existing data to make it easier for coding.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive. We'll keep increasing the number of users and then we can probably get better discounts.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed us to manage our staff more effectively and frees up time for our analysts to analyze new problems and opportunities.

There are still some functionalities that have not carried over from QlikView, but it is getting close. From where it was a few years ago to today is a dramatic improvement. Better searching… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The costs can initially become quite high. Make sure you have a clear understanding of who will truly use the product as opposed to someone that will simply receive the end report.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No prior BI tool was present.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

A few others were considered, but I do not remember the names.
