Qlik Sense Room for Improvement

Adam Abwat-Johnson
BI Developer at a retailer with 51-200 employees
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 bugs here and there that you have to work around can be a bit of a pain at times. This can be taken into account by waiting for a month or two to see if any patches come out (much like with how you would treat Microsoft releases) but if you want to get the latest updates as soon as possible then you need to prepare yourself.

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 could be improved by the addition of a more powerful data engine. View full review »

Multi-server deployment: not just cloud, but on premise too, and hybrid. Needs lighter protocols to communicate between the different services and with the clients. Multi-server computing: the QIX engine is still "limited" to the power of one single computer. While this power increases with better CPUs and bigger and faster memories, data demands even faster handling, only achievable by leveraging on several computers to crunch the numbers. Data sources connectivity, natively: Drivers tailored to how Qlik processes data and how the sources provide it. Governance: On the reactive side, see how each node in my development is doing, on the proactive side the ability to spin up new instances for the different needs in different moments (extraction, or data handling in memory or report distribution). Have a unique, central library of apps, but also measures and dimensions which can be used across the different sets of apps. Natively built in tools to analyze who is accessing where, when, providing better insights on apps seldom used and those who are massively accessed, and allowing to provision resources and make these apps more accessible and improve the user experience. Licensing: Review the named model and move towards a usage model (e.g., cores, memory, computers, API calls, etc.). View full review »

Trending percentage volume over time in a new way, instead of using multiple pie charts, just have a percent scale and line that shows the percent change over time. The ability to free form visualizations without coding, I know it is a tall order. There is so much right about Qlik Sense that it is hard to ask for improvements. View full review »

I would like to see real-time data feed into the dashboard, or report, without any limitations. The new version upgrades should not contain bugs in the basic, required features. Advanced graphs or visualizations must be in the built-in product, instead of building with open API extensions or mashups. View full review »

This solution would be improved by adding some Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) components that are easier to interpret and design. Maybe adding a module where we can drag and drop various models, test them in a sandbox, and test the outputs before putting them into production would be helpful. View full review »

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

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. View full review »

Possibly offering some more basic, simpler templates. We have some users who have some technical proficiency but others who may just want to create a simple graph or pie chart from the data they have been given. It would be nice to be able to break down the templates by user type: beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Therefore, the administrator can allow the end-user some flexibility based on their technical knowledge. This should allow the user to have more control over how they would like to see the data they need and be able to understand it easily. View full review »

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 capabilities would be a nice addition. View full review »

* Branding is not the product's strongest point. More control over the presentation colors would be great. * A basic printing function would also be good. * Easy connection to external tools like R Server would be nice. View full review »

The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system. This would inspire the new development to be prioritized by the community so that the most requested features would come first. Power BI (Microsoft) currently uses this solution. View full review »

Integrated maps should become part of the Qlik Sense, as opposed to buying an additional module just to power the BI, which has it built-in natively within the application. View full review »

Ultra-customization: It needs no limits on which charts can have x amount of dimensions, y amount of measures, z amount of color expressions, etc. Sometimes, it is frustrating when I want to add a field to an existing chart, only to find that it cannot be added and it requires a new chart type.

I am not really a fan of the set analysis. It's its own language that doesn't quite make a whole lot of sense to me at this point. I wish it were more intuitive. View full review »

I believe that the area in which the product could be improved is the part related to programming and its language, which is certainly complex and still not very guided. View full review »
