Comments: I recommend the tool. Friendly user, you can have very good dashboards using only a simple spreadsheet.

Pros: Low cost against BO, Cognos,... You can simple use Tables, databases, web tables and a lot of other kind of connection to use the data.

Cons: It don´t have a flexible map as a standard. You should acquire a "Geo Analysis" add in for a best use.

Pros: Qlikview has a very intuitive UI, it is really easy to understand and provides exceptional data dril up and drill down qualities. Qlikview is highly robust in managing vast amounts of data and provides great data modelling capability. It is really fast in its analysis and has range of dashboard & report creation features. It is also compatible with most of the existing databases & systems.

Cons: There is nothing that is really not well about Qlikview except its data warehousing capability which needs slight improvement in the scripting part.

Comments: QlikView is an excellent tool for data visualization. Developers can create intuitive solutions with relative ease.

Pros: QlikView has a positive 80/20 ratio. The first 80% of what you need to know (everything you need to know for most visualizations) can be learned in 20% of the time. The remaining 20% (complex expressions, extensions, and other advanced options) takes 80% of the time to learn. A skilled analyst can sit down on day one and create a useful, meaningful QlikView solution. An advanced user could spend years learning new possibilities and creating more advanced offerings.

Cons: QlikView is an "in-memory" BI tool, which does offer speed and data manipulation capabilities. However, the data model is loosely managed. If it's not structured carefully, loading and processing times become unnecessarily long. The underlying model could be strengthened and otherwise improved to help the platform scale to larger projects.

Pros: Unlike most traditional systems, QlikView gives users the exact tools they need to build their workspaces, and process data in the desired ways. The system is packed with appealing templates you could use to build accurate reports, which can later on be distributed as Microsoft Office document, or printed directly from the platform.

Cons: QlikView offers a number of perks, but it comes with a big price tag. End users can¿t build dashboard applications with Qlik; these tasks require the skill of a trained developer.

Comments: After implementing 3 projects, I was so convinced I am not even close to not so familiar, not so user friendly, not so popular tool to the people who would ask to use. I read its manual and couldn't code anything close to what I could quickly on my day 1 in Power BI and Tableau kinda tool

Pros: Good Graphics Good slicing feature Can handle terabytes of data Its in memory stuff brings gigs of server storage space that might turn a pro into a con

Cons: Implementation cost per user are too much that small to medium sized business cant even think of affording it. Infra cost would rise Coding they say is easy but not really that easy especially for non It users Performance issues are so severe Poor customer support

Pros: Just a year ago, We started implementing this tool at our two systems, we felt some problems, but as we started moving deep, we started attracted to this tool because of its rich features and its capabilities that we can not think of our work without this now. Learning this was easy and very intuitive and gave the way to drill down and filter. Thanks to the team who developed this, good work guys.

Cons: we experience that if you have the capability of a deep researcher then don't worry then you can use easily this tool

Overall: Very intuitive software with great data visualization. The software is very easy to use and customizable. It even allows you to do what if analyses to show impact all around. Qlik is the new wave for increasing data analytics and reporting. It allows the users to get the real story behind the data very quickly to make concrete decisions on the hits and misses within ones industry. I would highly suggest this software and I'm sure many more companies will jump on board after they just get a wiff of what this software can do for the business.

Pros: Easy to get started, very intuitive for end users, great data and image output capabilities, simple to use over multiple data sources within one document.

Cons: Creating geographic mapping charts is pretty complex unless third-party add-ons are purchased.

Overall: We recently adopted QlikView as our Business Intelligence application, using it primarily to draw from and combine data from three different databases. It is a very cool product that is great for everything from producing regular standard governance reports to providing a playground for cutting and exploring data every which way.
For beginners it is pretty easy to get going with QlikView. There is a 'wizard' approach to connecting to data sources and creating a dashboard (I found this most useful when connecting to Excel files). Learning the basics is remarkably quick and easy. Using an existing dashboard is very intuitive with multiple ways to drill down and filter. As well as the obvious clicking on one or more selections on a list approach to filtering and drilling into data you can click directly on chart elements or items in a chart legend, or click and drag over visual elements to achieve the same result. A range of data and image copy/export options can be added as icons to the menu bars at the top of every object - ideal for quickly dropping tables or charts directly into documents.
First appearances may give you the impression that this is a fairly simple and limited piece of software, but don't be deceived. Under the hood there is a huge amount of capability hiding, though beyond the basics there is a steeper learning curve for BI newbies like myself. Support exists through a mix of videos, blogs and forums, and there is a downloadable comprehensive 900 plus page guide.
Where data is drawn from a mix of sources QlikView will assume that fields with exactly the same name in different datasources are the same thing, and will create links between the different data tables based on these. This can be great and can save time manually matching fields, but it can also create data 'loops' that require a bit of re-naming in the data load statements to fix.
As well as vastly improving our understanding of our business at a reasonable financial cost I have found this to be both an easy way to learn BI basics and a great platform for moving up to a more intermediate level of dashboard creation. If an easy to use geographic location mapping option was included this would be a hard product to fault.

Pros: Qlikview is good reporting/BI tool for developing complex reports. Once the reports are developed, users can apply multiple filters to drill down into specifics. It has a a great export to excel feature as well.

Cons: It is not user friendly enough for users to build their own charts or identify patterns. Any change needs to be re-coded and deployed. User licenses are expensive as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for products which are specific to your company size and industry vertical i.e. a more solution driven company rather than product driven. The product could be great but you need to identify the right fit to your requirements.

Pros: Cost is low compared to value. Truly connects to any data source. Data governance, security, and user adoption rates couldn't be better. Directly embed into EHR workflows to deliver maximum value to end users. Extremely fast timeline associated with production application development. Ease of use in the context of truly 360 degree data access.

Cons: Skill set of Qlik developers isn't exactly a commodity in today's market. Keeping up with intensely high rates of end user adoption is difficult. Building a team that can meet Sid requirements and business leaders that are able,to take ownership of DQ and data definitions.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't fall for the first 5 minutes. There is much, much more value to be had from the 6th minute onward.

One of the best Enterprise BI tools on the market

Jun 08, 2016
5/5
Overall

Comments: There are lots (and I mean lots) of BI tools of the market but Qlik is one of the best (if not the best). Here is why I think it is the best enterprise BI tool (compared to other enterprise BI tools -- SAP BO, Tableau, SAS, Cognos) - It has its own ETL. Really no other tool is needed to use Qlik View. Easy to extract and transform data before using it in data model. - Super fast -- want to see 100's of millions of rows presented very quickly. Done. - Flexible data modeling. For example, you can achieve huge performance improvements with simple data model changes. - Qlik's secret sauce -- associative model -- quickly and visually see data that is selected, possible, and unrelated. By selecting some data, you can see if all other data is (selected), is possible (associated) or completely unrelated located anywhere in the data model. - Automatically web enabled. - Save space. Compressed data in QVD tables are 10x smaller.

Pros: Building the meta data for each dashboard is easy and the tools have enough depth for any complicated calculations. All the objects have lots of options and the scripts for each data point can be heavily customized or left as a single field. Conditionals for each object combined with global variables make each dashboard dynamic

Cons: Desktop design tool that sometimes hogs memory and crashes. Licensing between small business and big business is not very flexible.

Recommendations to other buyers: Download the trial and see how easy it is to create dashboards. Design and organize your dashboards with licenses in mind.

Pros: This is an excellent analytical tool with below best suited features: 1) Flexible chart design 2) A lot of charts and plenty of minutes properties to configure the chart. 3) Power of custom expression using a expression language called "SET ANALYSIS". This enables a better control on data transformation and manipulation. 4) Script editor where in Data Layer can be defined, designed and managed. 5) Nice client server architecture so that report designed can be easily published over to web and access can be controlled easily through management console. 6) Qliksense, a cloud model, is a best thing qlikview has.

Cons: It's nothing like bad things but good if it has few features (that other BI tool has) 1) Data management should be more user friendly. Right now it is in script editor. Someone with good knowledge of Relational Database can easily handle this but a programmer knowledge is must. End users or non technical person may timid to start with qlikview as they will find it hard to start with. 2) Too many properties and configuration available. (It's not a bad thing at all as it gives more flexibility) But many configuration can be easily clubbed together systematically and user do not waste time to find the properties configuration. Meaning configuration should be simplified and structured. 3) Desktop should be as neat and clean as qliksense. Qliksense is way par than desktop in terms of User interface.

Recommendations to other buyers: Please find my evaluation points: 1) Licensing and cost effectiveness. 2) Ease of dashboard Implementation 3) Data layer feasibility, management and manipulation 4) Presence over web and ease of publishing over web. 5) Performance and speed to manage huge data.

Pros: QlikView is extremely easy to use, user-friendly and developer-friendly. At the same time, it offers a lot of depth - when a complex solution is required, QlikView offers robust tools for your most intricate analytical needs.

Cons: After 13 years of using the product, there are many little things that I don't like. For example, while QlikView scales up very well to handle hundreds of millions (sometimes even billions) of rows of data, QlikView Server management tools are relatively simplistic. It's easy to manage a single server or a few servers, with a few dozen of reload tasks, but it may be difficult to manage many servers with thousands of users and hundreds or thousands of reload tasks. Having said that - QlikView is still one of the most well-rounded tools that offer a great frond end and a phenomenal back end in one package.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you compare QlikView to big vendors traditional tools - just let both selling teams to build a prototype for you and see how fast you can get a working pilot on QlikView versus other tools. If you compare QlikView to tools like Tableau - take the time to "look under the hood" and verify for yourself what's behind the flashy front end. QlikView has a lot more to offer, but you need to open the hood before you can see that by yourself.

Pros: Qlik has always been about giving the user unparalleled flexibility. Some customers use QlikView as a powerful visualization tool on top of a well though out BI stack. Others leverage QlikView's ETL and scripting engine to wrangle disparate data sources into a simple to use tool.

Cons: With flexibility comes some complications. Dashboards and reports can be built out quickly but new customers will find that the number of options can be somewhat overwhelming. Complex visualizations and manual scripting can take time to polish, often leaving the customer wondering where the 'Wow' they saw in the sales cycle went.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't try to implement your first QlikView project alone. Find a reputable partner that can teach you the right way to build an environment that will scale and have them show you industry recognized best practices. This will keep you from finding something really compelling in your evaluation that can't scale to production.

I have been working on Qlikview for 5 years and its an amazing tool.

Pros: QlikView's unique in-memory, associative data engine makes it possible for an organization to gain insight quickly from vast amount of data. QlikView is trend setter in the business discovery space and a leader in the Gartner's magic quadrant for business discovery tools.

Cons: QlikView's visualization capabilities are not as strong as one offered by Tableau but Qlik Tech is addressing that with a new product -- Qlik Sense. It has yet to be seen how QlikView and Qlik Sense will work as a suite. Qlik Tech has yet to articulate their long-term vision for QlikView and Qlik Sense. Customers feel uncertainty due to lack of clarity.

Recommendations to other buyers: Analyze the business need for adopting a business intelligence tool. If you have need to analyze vast amount of data quickly from various sources, QlikView may be a good fit. But if you are looking for a tool to produce standard reports, it may not be the best choice.

I have 4+ Years of exp in QlikView.

Cons: Some limitations on displaying data are very limiting.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a great tool, just don't expect it to match your designs exactly as you have mocked them up.

Pros: QlikView is an extremely flexible tool. The development process is similar in speed and complexity to Excel, but the results are far superior. While it works with just about any data source, I've been most impressed with the SAP connector. An experienced ABAP developer can be at least 10 times more productive using QlikView.

Cons: QlikView is great at data visualization. However, it does allow for the creation of data. It would be nice if the tool had better capabilities for entering data.

Recommendations to other buyers: Learning Qlikview is like learning to golf. It looks incredibly easy when you watch a "pro" take a few swings, but that level of proficiency requires years of practice. Download the personal edition from Qlik's website and giving it a try, but don't get discouraged if you're not a master on your first attempt.

Pros: The product itself is excellent. It's very versatile and flexible. There is a huge community of users and developers to tap into.

Cons: Because it is so flexible, there are many, many options to pick from. And many alternative ways to get to the same place. So it is a little more difficult to learn than some other tools that I have used. But that is a good thing in reality.

Recommendations to other buyers: Like any application, there are multiple choices. You need to evaluate ease of use, development time, requirements for running the solution, and the availability of quality consultants and training.

Pros: Back when I was a SQL developer, I was told I was to sit in on a demo of a GUI-driven reporting solution I was skeptical of what it would deliver. However, when I saw what the associative engine was doing in filtering data without having to write queries, it was nothing short of a revelation. Building solutions with QlikView is what I wanted to be doing. Since that moment I have been lucky enough to be able to demo QlikView to a large number of people - giving them that same 'Jaw Drop' experience.

Cons: When you have built something in QlikView, you want to share it with everyone. Unfortunately, the licensing model can make this quite expensive quite quickly. However, it is often possible to achieve massive efficiency savings by moving to QlikView, making a quick ROI a possibility.

Recommendations to other buyers: The easiest way to see QlikView in action is to view the demos on the QlikTech website. However, the way to really see its power is to have someone who knows what they are doing build a quick proof of concept over data you are familiar with. Many QlikTech partners will call this POC build a 'Seeing Is Believing' session, or SiB; some of them will offer these at little or no cost to you as a prospective buyer. Make use of this!
