We primarily use this solution for operational and financial dashboards and reporting. We now have the ability to share insights on the Qlik mobile platform.

Qlik Sense is used as a Business Intelligence and analysis tool as part of a dual BI tool strategy. The software is hosted on two multi-node environments; production and ad-hoc. The production environment hosts the main reporting suite of apps, while the ad-hoc environment is used for one-off or ad-hoc analysis as well as pre-development. A third environment is used for testing releases or developing extensions and features. NPrinting is also used to supplement the capability of Qlik Sense in cases where the users aren't able to access the environment. This happens, for example, with external or third-party reporting, etc.

We are in the Pharma industry and we get a lot of patient-related data for our products. This data contains post-marketing cases and clinical cases that my organization conducts, and we use Qlik to analyze the data. We also use Qlik in some of the reporting we do with health authorities with different affiliates. We track the information sent to affiliates, whether the reporting was done on time or not. We use the GxP setup, so it is very controlled and split by three different environments: Dev, Val, and Production.

Qlik Sense is the BI platform for my company. At Carasso Motors, we use Qlik Sense and QlikView as back and front end tools for building data warehouses that are used across the company. We also build a variety of data GUI models that are also vastly used. The main operation of the company is selling new and used cars, which is our focal point on building decision support models that are used by managers of all ranks. In order to support all fields of operations within the company, we needed a platform able to connect to different kinds of data sources. Qlik Sense makes it easy for us.

My company is a distributor. We use Qlik to surface information regarding sales, inventory, ordering volumes, customer data, and other key pieces of information to decision-makers in our company. We primarily use Qlik internally. To date, we have created more than 1300 dashboards for various business teams within the organization. We have five developers who help create and maintain the dashboards. Some of our advanced users have also contributed sheets to our user community to augment the existing dashboards.

I work in the Data Solutions team at Marsh (Insurance company). We build Qlik Sense dashboards for Client Executives in the Specialties team, tailored to their requirements. The Client Executives can view their client's portfolio over several years and also see how Marsh is performing in the space. These visualizations help them with client and insurer meetings. Currently, it is being used for new client wins, client retention, negotiating with insurers, providing time efficiencies, and providing consistency in presentations.

Dashboards and reporting: we host a dashboard and reporting system for the whole company with a full set of rules of governances. Mashup pages or embedded iframe are good choices to manipulate Qlik Sense dashboards to any formats. Ad hoc data analytics: with strong data load engine and in-memory processing, we could use Qlik Sense to do most of the statistical tasks or data minings task, or even export processed data to do further advanced analytics by another platform. Self-service BI: in-memory processing make self-service data analytics become a joyful activity.

We use Qlik Sense to deliver enterprise-wide analytics covering various business units, including Commercial Finance, demand planning, aftermarket performance, ICT, eCommerce, procurement, master data management, sales forecasting, and market share analysis. The flexibility of Qlik Sense and the addition of 3rd party extensions allow us to extend the use of Qlik Sense beyond analytics and bring the platform to the core of our digital workplace, augmenting analytics with workflow, and team collaboration.

We are in apparel manufacturing. Individual Qlik Sense Apps were designed for each department: Retail, Warehouse, Sales, Finance, Production, and Operations. We are able to utilize data from our ERP, PLM, and retail applications. We use QlikView as well but Qlik Sense has been leveraged to allow departments to digest the data in a more targeted approach. It has a cleaner look and our users have been pleased with the solution. We added N Printing recently and have the trifecta of the BI solutions from Qlik.

Over the last two years, we have worked to modernize our company's data platform using technologies such as Qlik Sense to help deliver insight to our business partners. Prior to Qlik, our users had to depend on data extracted from our mainframe and loaded into various excel spreadsheets and access databases. Today, we have the ability to not only replace those antiquated methods, we can help our users look at data from many different angles. We are currently using an on-prem solution but will be moving to AWS next year.

Our primary use case of Qlik Sense is as a dashboard. It replaces some Excel grids we used to provide to people. We are currently serving only a few business units but are working on expanding to all other BU over time. We normally use this tool by loading data from our data warehouse into a QDF (Qlik deployment framework). This allows for better reusability at the cost of duplicate apps. We have also recently begun using Qlik Sense to load data from other sources, such as excel to help other business units that previously had no BI at all.

We have been using Qlik Sense for centralized reporting and analytics where we have one source of truth that can not be manipulated by users like spreadsheets. We want users to utilize the reports to analyze the data instead of spending hours producing reports that are never analyzed. We have been using Qlik Sense to generate reports that have taken hours to prepare before that we are now able to update in a couple of minutes and are available to users on a centralized platform where they are able to get the required reports.

I would say general business analytics is the primary use of this solution. Anything from Finance files, HR, Operations, Manufacturing, Mining, etc. It's not specific to any use case, but I would say it is used for general all-purpose business analytics.

During the COVID-19 crisis, we used our live dataset to be visualized adequately by Qlik Sense and present them to the leadership in order to let them make the best decisions. As it turned out, they had to concentrate more and more on the never-seen-before cancellation rate in the hotel industry, and besides turning the deposit - where it was possible based on the contract - into cash-flow. Even though there were obviously many other factors on the spectrum, which couldn't have been influenced by our decisionmaking, Qlik helped a lot during this uncertain period.

Our organization uses Qlik Sense above all for financial reporting to management, as well as for reporting sales, collections, stock to the commercial department, and payment-purchase reporting for the administration department. We use ERP SAP Bussiness One for the management of the company, which is why we needed a solution for information extraction due to the limited nature of this application in the reporting area. The version we currently use is Qlik Sense desktop, April 2020 version, and its implementation began at the end of 2018.

We use this solution for process optimization and getting insight into making better decisions based on data visualization. We have deployed to multiple environments, standard and self-service, among a variety of user groups based on the requirements. This is valid for multiple locations around the world including North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Use cases are valid for most of the company's divisions, though some of them are using it more often. We have both user types, including consumers who don't have as many privileges and power users who can take advantage of most of the features.

Our primary uses for Qlik Sense are sales statistics, order intake, invoicing during a period of 10 years, and customer statistics. Our statistics are grouped by segment, country, business unit, customer, and customer groups. Statistics are used to compare costs considering sales price and margin. We conduct a complete review of the sales statistics including KPI and Highlights, following all of the information available on the order, customer, and product. We cover all requirement requests by the sales department and generate reports on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

I built a pilot in QlikSense for an existing customer with QlikView. I had to learn all about QlikSense in a short period to develop a complete application. It was very easy and fun for me to jump into a new version of Qlik. Currently, I love QlikSense and I continue learning about it.

As a consultant, I used this for a wide variety of use cases. Mainly, the first thing people would look at would be sales and margin reporting, especially in retail (which is the area I work in now). I have also used Qlik Sense as an integration tool to gather data from multiple data sources to be exported and sent to AWS to be picked up by a web marketing tool.
