QlikView Initial Setup

Harlan Webber
Vice President, Business Continuity Manager / Information Security Officer / Project Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
We went for standalone licenses in the beginning of about six, and over several years the license count grew to 60. When I left the company in late 2015, we were looking finally getting a server. I do not know the status now, but the company should have been given serious thought to getting a server, and perhaps converting some of the licenses to QlikSense. View full review »

Solutions Manager Business Intelligence at a marketing services firm with 51-200 employees
Initial setup was straightforward. You need a server, install QlikView with its web server option and then you can start doing applications. For more complex architectures (clustered, with two or more servers), you will probably need Qlik Tech support. View full review »
Christopher Darling
Business Intelligence Data Architect at a construction company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The setup is fairly simple, but you do have to have a decent level of technical knowledge if you are going to set up a Qlikview Server yourself. Otherwise, I’d suggest the use of a consultant. The client software is very simple to set up. View full review »
Roy Yung
Data Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
On the server side, it is quite straightforward and we didn’t encounter any problem. On the client side, the user can access it by browser or a desktop application. For the desktop installation, it can be downloaded from internet. And the configuration to connect the server is very easy; even end-users are able to do it. We prepared just one slide and end-users are able to follow it. View full review »

Ronald Schlageter
IT Admin at a logistics company with 501-1,000 employees
A comprehensive concept for the initial setup is very important; there are various ways to implement the server infrastructure. If the concept was done properly, implementation might be complex but not difficult. We never had to contact QlikTech for additional support. The documentation itself, user forum and several tech days was always helpful to start. View full review »

It was very easy because we started by using the free version of QlikView. After that, we bought everything, including a server license. So, we had no problems with this. View full review »
