What is most valuable?

The in-memory feature gives us better insight. It's also easy to drill down into the information and select information. Of course, it has the typical functionalities. For example, when I select something I can know its opposite.

What needs improvement?

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 that combines the functions we have from one side and the other side. One… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using a different solution and we still use a part of that solution, SAP. SAP Business Warehouse and SAP BusinessObjects. We faced a lot of problems in the migration between BusinessObjects and BW. In the past, BusinessObjects was a… more»

What other advice do I have?

I rate QlikView at eight out of 10. Compared with the SAP portfolio, in terms of administration, I think it lacks features. My advice, today, is you must look at the others, like Tableau or Microsoft, to compare. Everyone has their own… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a comparison between Microsoft Power BI and QlikView, and we decided on Qlik. That was five years ago.

What do you think of QlikView?

I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics. In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. 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 Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s…

What is most valuable?

My company is big on dashboards and this application excels in this space. Endless customization is key to meet everyone's needs. I also like how the application can use existing SQL statements to use… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This is a very cool application with endless options for creativity and visuals. While this application was loved by the end-users, the development required to build these dashboards proved to be more… more»

What needs improvement?

I really wish the application was easier to use in the development phase. Our business model relies on the business to build their own reports and many departments did not have the associates they… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We started form SAP Crystal Reports and originally moved to Qlik as a replacement, but this application proved to be more difficult for development as the business owns their own report vs. IT.

What other advice do I have?

Their training and services have been top-notch and very reactive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The biggest comparison was made with Tableau, which ultimately won.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has simplified getting to and understanding our data, no matter where it is housed.

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What do you think of QlikView?

Our primary use case is an application that our users use to get the profitability on a monthly basis.

What is most valuable?

It's pretty easy to deploy.

What needs improvement?

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.

I did not encounter any issues with stability of the product. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability of the product. 

How is customer service and technical support?

We usually use a partner for technical support, so I cannot really rate the service.

We had the partner help us set up the product…

What do you think of QlikView?

What is our primary use case?

I have used QlikView to create powerful and compelling data visualisations. QlikView is a well-rounded tool with good visualisation component and data preparation features.

How has it helped my organization?

Using QlikView, we have been able to derive the value out of our data much faster than with other tools because of its easy to understand/use components and features.

What is most valuable?

As a developer, I liked that using QlikView, I had the option to prepare data myself instead of always depending on the data team.

What needs improvement?

More/newer visualisation components need to be added. QlikView's ability to embed custom visualisation is not a great experience.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
