QlikView Initial Setup

The deployment on premises is quite complicated. I did it myself but my predecessor neglected to make proper documentation about installation and the solution requires a lot of components on different servers that talk to each other and you need to set firewall settings and things like that. It's quite a big application. They could improve on that and they probably did that with Qlik Sense. There's a lot of manual stuff required which is not really necessary. We have about 30 users in the company who are really customers. They access the reporting through a web console which sees it in the mail and some of them are external users who developed on the application. My role is more the maintenance of the application itself. I'm the one who installed it and updates the system. It's difficult to know whether our usage will be increased. This is a difficult year for everyone. If a company has to cut its budget, one of the first things to go is usually marketing. View full review »

Setup itself was fairly complex since our company battled with a legacy of dirty data and a lack of data literacy. View full review »

it wasn't bad. We did need some consulting advise on the set up in the server...but designing the organization and naming conventions should be up to you. We took the consultants advise and ended up renaming, changing almost everything as far as naming conventions View full review »

When you are setting up QlikView, the first thing that you need to do is connect to the database. The length of time it takes depends on the size of the data. We found that for a million records, it will take between two and three minutes. View full review »
