QlikView Implementation Team

Harlan Webber
Vice President, Business Continuity Manager / Information Security Officer / Project Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
A vendor team implemented it, but it was more like a sales team. We just asked for more licenses and put the server deployment on hold for way too long. Although users were very happy, the cross-division expansion that I felt was possible never happened. The biggest problem out there is that most people keep thinking, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I believe that people use MS Excel way too much, and that is a symptom that something is broken. Also, I used QV to pull data out of core systems often whenever reconciliations were questioned. (Analyzing the source directly is better than another Excel spreadsheet.) View full review »

Christopher Darling
Business Intelligence Data Architect at a construction company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We implemented through a vendor. The advice I would have is to ensure that you attend all necessary QlikView courses, to get a very clear idea for yourself exactly how QlikView works. Sometimes sales consultants will over-sell you on the bells and whistles of a product, and when you actually want to make use of it in a particular way, you might not be able to. This has not been the case during our QlikView implementation, but I have experienced other implementations that have been like this. So you do need to be very clear on: * What exactly do you want to get out of a business intelligence solution, what data do you want to manipulate and analyse, etc. * For your own sanity, be very clear on how QlikView works and that you will get the solutions out of it that you want.

Roy Yung
Data Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
We implement it through a collaboration with the vendor. The vendor team is responsible for installation and configuration. And the in-house team is responsible for development. My advice is to use a data warehouse as the data source, which can greatly reduce Qlik implementation time, as creating too many joins in Qlik is not a best practice. View full review »
it_user140223
Marketing Intelligence Analyst at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We had a recommended vendor do the install on site. My only advice is to have users that are somewhat knowledgeable of the application to test. (It can be installed individually for testing.) Also, I recommend thorough testing of all aspects of loading data. View full review »
Ronald Schlageter
IT Admin at a logistics company with 501-1,000 employees
We implemented the whole environment without any additional support. Before we start working with the product, we organized in-house training from a vendor partner for developers and report designers based on our requirements. My advice for implementation is to create a team made up of developers and IT department staff to set up the concept for test and production environments. Training for IT and developers is available from the vendor, or if you organize in-house training from the vendor partner. Provisioning of data should be the responsibility of the IT department. You can also plan to have the vendor or vendor partner implement the product. View full review »
it_user181071
Information System & Business Enterprise Manager at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did it in-house, with one week of one vendor person assisting. (The four apps he helped us put together, we ended up redesigning altogether once we had a chance to use them and redefined requirements.) Advice: Keep it simple. We know of similar organizations that used third-party implements, who created apps that were complicated to support and use, and consequently those implementations were not entirely successful. In at least once case, they abandoned the product (and haven’t done anything else that I’m aware of). View full review »

it_user381693
FSI IT Consulting Manager at Deloitte Portugal
We do our own implementations without the need for a high level of involvement from the QlikTech vendor team. Our main advice is that a good understanding of how tabular models work when designing the data model, and a good understanding of the full QlikView offering specifically in terms of ETL, are fundamental for a good QlikView implementation project.

Business Information Expert Performance Measurement at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
We have implemented it with vendor teams and in-house ones (multiple installations). For a simple scenario with one server, just do the training and you can do it yourself. For a more complex scenario (we have a cluster of six servers in the cloud), it is better to let the vendor do it; they have the best connections for the complexities of clustering.

Senior Business Analyst at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We implemented it in-house. QlikView is running in memory, so it depends on your organization to achieve the balance between cost of server RAM and performance. Besides, the data quality and accuracy is very important, no matter what powerful visualization tools are used. View full review »
Marcus Malinow
Consultant at a tech vendor with 501-1,000 employees
I have implemented the solution both with vendor teams and in-house. In a previous job, I worked with a vendor team, and have worked for a partner and provided implementation support for clients. I would advise new Qlik customers to seek out a reliable Qlik partner to help with implementation. View full review »
Angel Monjarás
Product Specialist and Education Services at a consultancy with 501-1,000 employees
We implemented it in house, because we have a Qlik consulting practice. My advice is to not overcomplicate the implementation with excessive design, because the data model can grow organically over time. View full review »

Before you start implementing it right on your computer, you have to design the data model on paper. Once you have an error-free data model on paper, you can finish the project earlier than planned. View full review »
Mindy Kay
Solution Engineer - QlikView/Qlik Sense at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
I have implemented it in-house and with a vendor team. Business needs need to be fully understood and documented. Most of the issues have always been data related. The development team and the business HAVE to get a full understanding of what the data is, where it is stored, and how it is stored. BUSINESS RULES and a DATA DICTIONARY are a must.
