What is most valuable?

It enables quick and easy access anywhere in the world in real-time. We have satellite offices on different continents with a different time zone which makes it quite a challenge to show real-time… more»

How has it helped my organization?

QlikView allowed us to determine the sales date which was missing in the biggest sales system. QlikView helps us with detecting shortcomings in data capturing and safeguard our margin. It also enables… more»

What needs improvement?

QlikView lacks the development aspects that its sister product QlikSense has got. It would be nice to also get the new graphs that are available in QlikSense in QlikView. It would be nice if QlikView… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The setup costs for QlikView are fair as are the yearly maintenance fees. The licensing becomes a bit more expensive and requires some planning for onboarding.

What other advice do I have?

Since Qlik is focussing more on QlikSense, it is recommendable to look into that direction than into QlikView.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't know, I was not part of that process and not active within the company.

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.

The most valuable features are the ETL, automation, and ease of use by the user population.

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»
