QlikView Other Solutions Considered

Felipe Carrera
Solutions Manager Business Intelligence at a marketing services firm with 51-200 employees
For my previous company I compared Tibco, QlikView, Tablaeu, and other tools, as indicated in the Gartner Quadrant. We did workshops with them, and were happy with QV because you can build something immediately. In the case of Tablaeu, you need a really well-established ETL and / or views. Otherwise, it is complicated for a normal user to build correct charts. Users have normally very little understanding of the data structure. Other tools need pre-aggregation and a long development process. With QV, it is possible to use views, pre-aggregated or raw data and you can still manipulate the data in the script, i.e. do ETL (see Deployment Framework). View full review »

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 this respect, so our choice was very precise because already we used this tool and we decided to buy it. View full review »

During the selection of the local BI tool, the choice was between IBM Cognos and QlikView. We were naturally showcasing to management how easy it is to use the UI, and the latter one was chosen. View full review »

They did launch a new tool to compete with Tableau, Qlik Sense, which they are trying to push to customers, but it actually falls behind QlikView. (They know that, but they don’t want us to compare Qlik Sense to QlikView, saying they are two entirely different tools.) We still prefer QlikView compared to Qlik Sense. Qlik Sense is incomplete at best. View full review »

BI Analyst at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I evaluated Tableau. However, we selected Qlikview because: * Tableau’s current recommendation is to build dashboards directly on top of the reporting DB (for example – data mart or consumption layer) to avoid doing complex logic or transformation inside the tool and using a hybrid approach of live connection and extract. Tableau is currently not an extract-heavy tool. However, with the recent HyPer acquisition, we are expecting some changes. * Incremental loading (updates and deletes) inside Tableau is a challenge, which can be achieved very easily in QlikView. * Limitation in Tableau on # of columns and rows in table view View full review »

I also looked at Tableau, Sisense, and SAP BusinessObjects. Tableau is a good tool, but has a few drawbacks when your data source is not in the correct format. BusinessObjects is a bit old school (reporting) and SAP HANA is costly to implement. BusinessObjects is also costly and requires a lot of work in the data and business layer. View full review »
Business Intelligence Consultant at a software R&D company with 51-200 employees
I also tried Tableau. I believe they are targeting a different market, if you compare Tableau with QlikView. The better comparison will be Tableau to Qlik Sense, which is beyond the scope of this review. The reason we selected QlikView is its relatively comprehensive functionality. View full review »

Business Intelligence Director at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
For three months, we evaluated several solutions with installations provided by vendors such as Oracle BI, IBM Cognos, and SAP BusinessObjects. The main challenge to prove during that phase was the ease of use without professional services support at that stage!!! View full review »
