QlikView Room for Improvement

Christopher Darling

Some improvement to the user interface (for the developers). It could certainly use a re-vamp. The existing tab structure can be confusing sometimes and the controls that you would expect to find on one particular tab are actually on another. I'm referring to the properties of the various charts that you can create within Qlikview – this brings up a dialogue box with a number of different tabs along the top; In my opinion, for example, the tabs “Visual Cues” and “Style” could be combined into one. “Caption” for another example could be renamed to “Title Bar config” or “Chart Config” or something like that. Some aspects of the “Layout” tab could be added to “Presentation”. The dialogue box itself isn’t quite wide enough, so if you end up going all the way to the right you have to click on an arrow a couple of times to see the tabs all the way to the left again, and you can’t resize it either – Why???. The box itself should be wide enough to encompass the number of tabs in a single view. Either that, or have a maximise / minimise buttons on it to give the users the choice. There are no doubt a few others I can point out if I give more though to it, just my feeling of the product is that it can be a little unwieldy, especially to people initially learning the program.

By comparing with the latest data discovery tools like Tableau, Qlik Sense and Sisense, the layout and colors are not eye catching enough. It looks like a very powerful excel with a lot of powerful features for analysis. But it may not be good for presentation. View full review »

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 would like to see JavaScript or jQuery features added to it. Dynamic changes with respect to page scrolling, responsiveness and actions related to it are what I am expecting in the next version. Other than these, while adding named CALs in QMC, it would be really great if we could load all of the names from a single file (for example, an Excel sheet) together all at once. The iPad application lacks some features. For example, container box object functionality does not work properly in iPads. View full review »
Qlik Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The user interface and ease of use takes a bit of a learning curve to pick up. There is no drag and drop functionality at the development stage unlike its competitors. Maybe QlikSense could handle that area. View full review »
Business Intelligence Consultant at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
This is really an awesome product, but there is room for improvement regarding the visual aspect (this has been sorted out in their new product – Qlik Sense). Some features are a bit tedious to achieve results, especially for new users and people who have not had training or experience in using the product. View full review »

While Qlik and their products are very intuitive and a pleasure to use as a developer of the dashboards and poweruser, many of my colleagues and stakeholders of information are used to static (paper) reports. This often leads to producing tables and graphs that are 'pinned down' (set analysis) to reduce the flexibility of the representations and the dashboards as a whole. (Qlik presents this as a core strength of their products.) Often this makes the formulas for these expressions and dimensions very complex. Of course you could argue that the users would have to 'mature' to use this new, more flexible, way of information. But it would be a great improvement for the Qlik products if it were able to easily 'lock' graphs without extensive coding. View full review »

Syntax editor needs some work, it's frustrating to have valid syntax being flagged as incorrect. It would save time troubleshooting errors that don't exist when the script runs or charts render. 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. 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 »

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