What needs improvement?

I would say it's not negative, but it's an issue because we also use other tools, like SAP BusinessObjects, for a long period of time, which is another product in the business intelligence area… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Because the majority of BI tools are focusing on processing a significant mass of data, we were looking for a more analytical tool with the possibility to quickly build models, and we found it. On the… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product. We have a lot of reference meetings because we were the first bank in the country to implement it, this platform. So we're meeting our colleagues who are working not… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

At that time, we already had BusinessObjects as a BI tool in our bank, with SAP Crystal Reports, for example, as a part of BusinessObjects. At that time, in the market, there were no alternatives in… more»

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»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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?

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…

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»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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.
