QlikView Improvements to My Organization

Harlan Webber
Vice President, Business Continuity Manager / Information Security Officer / Project Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
This product improved how my organization conducted repeatable analyses, such as a user access internal audit review for 500 users over 100,000 user ID and system access across 50-100 systems. My first project before we had QlikView took about a month, but after we rewrote the procedure using QlikView, it was much better and took about a week. We pretty much used the same raw data, but the report and analysis was so much quicker. The process of gathering the data and using Microsoft Access used to take a month or so. Certainly, using QlikView as an ad-hoc tool is very powerful, yet easy. Comparing it to development on Microsoft Access, it feels about 10 times quicker. You go from raw data almost directly to reporting. (Skipping the hassle of lots of queries, forms, and slow report creation.) As they say, "Seeing is Believing”. View full review »

Christopher Darling
Business Intelligence Data Architect at a construction company with 1,001-5,000 employees
My company was recently bought out by a competitor, now forming one group. The organisations are on different versions of a particular ERP solution, and the need immediately arose, from a regional and management executive level, for a dashboard to measure the sales performance of the group as a whole. Using QlikView, we managed to pull information from two different servers - one running off a QVD file structure, the other using a Microsoft SQL Server - and provide a consolidated sales performance model. This allows our executives to be able to examine the performance of their companies from a central point. View full review »
Roy Yung
Data Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
My experience using QlikView was in a F&B chain store with outlets around the world. In such a F&B chain store, there are a lot of dishes and they are changing frequently with a high transaction volume. In such an environment, a search function is very helpful for us when we want to find out the sales performance and trend of a specific dish. Qlik’s associative model greatly helped us identify customer purchase behavior and we can define combos according to this information. View full review »
Marketing Intelligence Analyst at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
This product has allowed us to create several applications and dashboards for use by management and different business units to conduct self-service analysis, as well as built-in intelligence. This accelerates business decision-making. It avoids the lengthy delays involved in requesting the information from IT or having to deal with the disconnect between technology and the business side, both from an objective point of view, but also from the customer view. It also enables management and the end user to change the criteria of the reports and data without having to go back to IT with changes. In other words, dynamic reporting. View full review »

Vyacheslav Koval
Board of Management with 501-1,000 employees
It has helped us to implement the accounting management system and provide a very comprehensive solution for this. Also, I already mentioned cost allocation system, transfer pricing. It's also very helpful in visualization of the data from our operation systems. Because we are a bank, data creation is very important for us, so it's another model. It covers many things, including current exposure, the coverage of loans, etc. In these areas, it's the most comprehensive and most helpful of the tools we're using, based on this platform.

Developer with 501-1,000 employees
With QV, literally all departments across the company have started “owning” data in terms of getting hands on data, knowledge about data, how it is built up, and the ability to slice and dice, add, expand, or decrease the size or granularity of their own reports. This in turn has in general decreased the “fear” of touching applications on computer. With backups maintained by IT, people are given more freedom to try and change applications themselves.

Director, Business Analytics at a recruiting/HR firm with 51-200 employees
I have implemented both QlikView and Qlik Sense solutions for our customers/organizations in multiple industries. The immediate improvements allow organisations: * To analyse data more comprehensively to provide greater insight / understanding * To make data available more quickly to facilitate decision making, especially for exceptional cases (e.g. when not meeting KPIs) Other side benefits derived from implementing such projects are: * Data gaps: It can identify insufficient or unavailable data for making better decisions. * Process gaps: It can identify business processes that need to be improved, e.g. manual processes that need to be fine-tuned or automated. * System gaps: It can identify areas where the system needs to be improved e.g. improvement to existing system functions, or a new system needs to be put in place. With such gaps and their relationship to the values of decisions, an organisation is able to prioritized resources to address those gaps over time. View full review »

Ashutosh Paliwal
Consultant at a tech consulting company with 1,001-5,000 employees
In my current organization, we use QlikView and we love it. We feel that for us it still does the best job possible. We want to be able to create beautiful visualizations like we could with Tableau, but we also know that the flexibility we have in QlikView is not possible in Tableau. Also, as of now, we have IT-driven BI and self-service is not what we are focusing on. We don’t have separate tools for ETL jobs. We think for our purposes, QlikView is better. View full review »

Shabaz Shaikh
Software Developer at a construction company with 10,001+ employees
We managed to implement applications combining CRM (Customer Relationship Management) data and sales data from two completely different data sources. It's the first (small) step towards big data. CRM data comes from Update 7 and sales data comes from SAP BW, which made it tricky to combine them and make common navigation possible. View full review »

We developed in a couple of days an application based on a timesheet application, in order to have a real-time vision of what we do in IT service. Before, there wasn't any system except some Excel manual spreadsheets. We developed a QlikView prototype based on sales data to give easy and visual access to the data. It took minutes to be loaded, compared to the existing system of traditional cubes that required hours to be loaded... to give what? Reports without any interactivity. View full review »
