The in-memory feature gives us better insight. It's also easy to drill down into the information and select information.

On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL.

The initial setup is not very complex.
You can do a lot of things on the back end which are not possible in the other solutions on the market.

Scripting as per a customer's need, which is a pretty cool feature and not available in other tools.

For me, it is important to have a mix, what is the "view" and what is the "sense", Qlik Sense. They have two tools, but for me it is important to have only one tool, which combines the functions that we have from one side and the other side.

If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlik view's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve.

This solution would be improved with the inclusion of a feature that would allow us to add a common library of (our) commands used in load scripts and expressions, so with a keyword, we would get a drop down to select the command we are looking for, as opposed to the generic help.

The pricing is high.
It needs work with visualization.
Needs improvement with UI transparency.

I would want them to have more options as a user. It would be nice for them to create their own dashboards and add fields.

More/newer visualisation components need to be added.
