QlikView Previous Solutions

BI Expert at a leisure / travel company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Previously used an older Domo product (Centerview). The product was no longer supported. It was very flexible, but also very labor intensive. Data had to be fully prepared outside of the tool ,and every interaction had to be defined. Development time was weeks vs days in QlikView. Currently also using Tableau, depending on the particular use case. view full review »

Before QlikView, Excel was used across the company. At the same time, we had SAS Web Reporting Studio provided by my company’s headquarters, which was very far from even being considered to be used for anything beyond just comparing total sales numbers if the QlikView reports were in line. view full review »

Data Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
I have previous experience with IBM Cognos ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/ibm-cognos ). It was a very comprehensive solution that can be used for pixel-perfect reports, email schedules and also data analysis. However, there are many more development and implementation steps than with Qlik. Also, Cognos requires a steep learning curve even for a user with a technical background. As we wanted an easy and user-friendly self-service BI solution, QlikView is more suitable from this perspective. view full review »

The time or effort to develop new stuff in QlikView is lower than other traditional tools as MicroStrategy ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/microstrategy ), Cognos ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/ibm-cognos ), etc. Besides that, we are changing our approach to a self-service BI. view full review »

Senior IT Project Manager at a financial services firm
I previously used Microsoft BI ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/microsoft-bi ) tools, but as a company we were too far behind the curve to take advantage of their latest technology in the BI space ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/business-intelligence-tools ). Upgrading to Office 2016 is not something a Fortune 500 company is going to do overnight. view full review »

Decision Support Manager at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
Most solutions like SAS, Tableau ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/tableau ) and others require a fully-fledged data warehouse (EDW), and IT support and intervention at all times for creating dashboards. QlikView is flexible and allows users to create their own reports in a relatively short time. view full review »

There are other data visualization tools similar to QlikView ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/qlikview ). Spotfire ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/tibco-spotfire ), for example, has incredible UI possibilities, but I think QlikView is very ahead in the competition in terms of solution flexibility. view full review »

Vice President, Business Continuity Manager / Information Security Officer / Project Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
As a global firm, we actually looked at many products, even signing a multi-year contract with a QV competitor (Tibco Spotfire ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/tibco-spotfire ), but the enemy of efficiency for analysis is MS Excel). For SpotFire, it was always my opinion that that deal was done on a golf course, because QlikView over the years was the better product by far (certainly, all users loved it) versus the other product, which very few users understood, and certainly users did not show anywhere near as much affection for it. view full review »

I’ve also worked with other main market solutions like Microsoft, or Tableau, but over the last few years, QlikView has evolved considerably, especially when they completed it’s offering with Qlik Sense 2. Although it is not as versatile as the Microsoft solutions, it is stronger in ease of use and development when compared to Power BI for example. It’s licensing costs when compared to Tableau are also a differentiating factor. view full review »
