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 »
Tomislav Lepcin
BI Project manager at Fixit Gruppe
As we are a very process-oriented company, we would like to see more extensions maintained from Qlik, because it's a huge budget problem to choose the right one. Also, a small set of Qlikview features would be appreciated (such as a simple PDF report directly from Qlik Sense...) 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 »

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

We want the next version of this solution to be cloud-based so that each user can access it from anywhere in the world with their phone, tablet, or computer without a VPN connection. This is very important for us because we have an initiative called 'Cloud first', and in five years, all software must be in the cloud and easy to access. Essentially, we want to stop using a physical server and avoid on-premises maintenance. 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 »

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 »

Currently, we are not very happy with the iPad or iPhone app because it is not working as we want. It is not very friendly and we very often have login errors. GeoAnalytics is getting better in each version, but from my point of view, GeoAnalytics has a lot of points to improve. 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 »

The product is constantly being improved upon. I would like to see more native features from QlikView integrated into Qlik Sense. 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 »
Peter Eerdekens
Commercial Business Analyst at a leisure / travel company with 501-1,000 employees
It would be nice to have more native features from QlikView built into Qlik Sense. Better control over Pivot tables, which should be made more customizable especially in terms of Totals, would be an improvement. View full review »
Laura Ashworth
Sr Business Intelligence Analyst at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Some of the charts are still a bit basic and screen rendering on different sized monitors can be an issue. It is also somewhat difficult to customize the charts with the opening and closing of the different panes, making it time-consuming. View full review »
Mitchell Speer
Business Intelligence Analyst at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
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.

Tiffany Andrisani

I wish the product had the ability for slightly more customization. The out-of-the box charts and visualizations are fantastic, but I want to be able to tweak it without having to add outside extensions and widgets. View full review »

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 »

Data modelling automation needs improvement. There are some tools like Alteryx, which are used for data preparation. These features can be built into Qlik to make the process smoother. View full review »

We would like to have connectors without the need for the Web Connector service. Report generation without the need for NPrinting, which has limited capabilities anyway, would be an improvement. 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 »
