QlikView Previous Solutions

Harlan Webber
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 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 »

Data Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
I have previous experience with 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 »

Ronald Schlageter
IT Admin at a logistics company with 501-1,000 employees
Before 2012, we used SAS and Crystal Reports for reporting and BI. When we started looking for other solution, we evaluated the new version of Crystal Reports, but there was no comparable alternative to QlikView. View full review »
Vyacheslav Koval
Board of Management with 501-1,000 employees
Because the majority of BI tools are focusing on processing a significant mass of data, we were looking for a more analytical tool with the possibility to quickly build models, and we found it. On the other hand, QlikView has some constraints due to the architecture, so it may not be applicable for millions and millions and millions of data records because it requires significant expenses for the hardware. But, as an analytical tool, it's very interesting. View full review »

Information System & Business Enterprise Manager at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
Like everyone, we used Excel and Access. We tried using the enterprise MicroStrategy and both developers and users rejected it as too much effort, not intuitive compared to QlikView. View full review »
BIDeveloper896
Developer with 501-1,000 employees
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.

Information Publishing Portfolio Manager at a comms service provider
I looked at IBM Cognos, SAP BusinessObjects, and MicroStrategy. The main draw cards to QlikView was the cost and flexibility. View full review »

Enterprise Architecture & Business Analyst - Analytics at a paper AND forest products with 1,001-5,000 employees
We were using a different solution and we still use a part of that solution, SAP. SAP Business Warehouse and SAP BusinessObjects. We faced a lot of problems in the migration between BusinessObjects and BW. In the past, BusinessObjects was a separate company that was bought by SAP, so we had a lot of problems in terms of integration. It was not possible to pursue these solutions with so many problems. We could not deliver solutions with that platform, so we went to the market to see which other solutions there were for creating the output: the reporting, the analytic views, the dashboard creation. The most important criteria when it comes to selecting a vendor are the vendor's position in the market, and the solution itself. If we are going to change from one supplier to another supplier, we must have confidence in that new supplier. Other factors are the functionality of the solution and the cost of implementing the solution. View full review »

FSI IT Consulting Manager at Deloitte Portugal
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 »

The time or effort to develop new stuff in QlikView is lower than other traditional tools as MicroStrategy, Cognos, etc. Besides that, we are changing our approach to a self-service BI. View full review »

Senior Business Analyst at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I also evaluated MS BI and tableau. Compared with MS BI, I find Tableau and QlikView have stronger visualization; intuitive data insights; less development lead time - MS BI requires creating OLAP cubes, which takes more time; clearer and simpler charts; and intuitive data mapping/insights.

Kevin Sheridan
Senior IT Project Manager at a financial services firm
I previously used 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. Upgrading to Office 2016 is not something a Fortune 500 company is going to do overnight. View full review »

DecisionSupMgr214
Decision Support Manager at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
