QlikView Room for 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. Improvement in collaboration, between that and publishing of reports and publishing of models. Probably that could be more comprehensive, from my point of view. View full review »

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 application. Also, they have not come out with new functions for QlikView. Qlik Sense has evolved but not QlikView. Another problem is the printing. It is not a solution that comes with QlikView. I believe we had to buy it. It is not integrated. It is not the easiest to manage. It is not as easy as it could be. View full review »

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 need with this type of skill set (i.e. SQL experience). In a business model where a centralized department (i.e. IT) is in control of the reports for the entire company, this would not be a problem. The development was the ultimate reason this application did not take off in my organization vs. a competitor's application (Tableau). This is a shame as the finished dashboard appeared to be more polished. View full review »

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. I keep them all in OneNote now and copy and paste them in, then change the field names. This addition would really save time. examples: Convert date-time stamp to just a normal date in the Load script - so we can match to the company calendar for Model Year / month etc , Fiscal Year /month / week of year/ week in year date(floor(DTTMSTAMP),'MM/DD/YYYY') as TransactionDate, Storing QVD's: (this is the path needed from a Data Loader) STORE SummarySalesAggregate INTO [..\QVDData\SummarySalesUnitsAndDollars.qvd]; Sorted and Count for creating Arrays: SortedAndCounted: Left join (SummarizeSales2) LOAD Option_Inv, Line_No, if(peek('Option_Inv',-1)<> Option_Inv,1, Peek('counter',-1)+1) as counter Resident SummarizeSales2 Order by Option_Inv asc, Line_No asc; View full review »

Although Qliktech's road map clearly states that QlikView has a long way to go, most of the R&D effort seems to be benefiting Qlik Sense which is getting stronger and sexier with every release 5 a year from now - June 2017). Qlik Sense makes selling "Qlik" easier - the only "negative" aspect is that the "self-service" capability of Qlik Sense means less consultancy for our company but more customers! View full review »

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. View full review »

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