What is most valuable?

The drag and drop UI has been the most useful to me. Working previously as a consultant, the self-service wizards for loading data weren't too important, as I knew how to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved the amount of time it takes to get information out to the business in a few ways. Firstly, by replacing reporting that was done manually in Excel by… more»

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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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.

How has it helped my organization?

Still getting there, but the availability of KPI monitoring on demand has led to improvements in data visibility and understanding of the value of reliable data insights.

What needs improvement?

Qlik's data handling could still use some strengthening, flexibility, and overall improvement. As a long-time data architect, I cannot overly stress how much the product… more»

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

Pay close attention to your licensing needs, especially when determining your requirements for developers vs users. Qlik offers excellent options, but you have to know… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I've used multiple solutions in BI. Qlik has proven to be flexible, powerful, and friendly to both developers and end users.

What other advice do I have?

Keep building and always turn to your colleagues in the Qlik community when you need assistance. Qlik: Keep up the good work, but I mean what I say about your data engine… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I was not part of this process.

What other advice do I have?

I have to disclaim that I worked for Qlik in the past, although today I'm a Qlik customer and also a user of other BI technologies in the SAP ecosystem.

I was not part of this process.

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

You will spend more time on educating your staff than licensing the product. Ultimately, the cost is low, and it implements fast. The limiting factor is how quickly your… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I previously used a combination of SQL and Crystal reports. It takes a lot more time and effort to get similar results. Qlik does much of the work for you, like a great… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is a great tool for those companies or institutions that really want to empower their users to do great things.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at Power BI and Tableau. Both were missing many things, including the academic healthcare community and expertise around Epic.

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.
