Qliksense for business

Reviewed on 30/11/2018

Thanks to Qliksense we are able to provide easily the information the user wants and to personalise it depending on their needs. Sometimes a given report can be used as base to create another which saves you time to deliver critical information in the least amount of time with the best results.

Pros

What I like most about Qliksense is the ease in which you can portray the information, also the duplicate function helps you to customise your sheet until you like it over and over again.
Also it's really easy to convert an information table into a pivot, graph (any kind), filter, etc.
Also the export feature as well as the filter can help you greatly to get just the information you want in the format you want.

Cons

Sadly when you work with a lot of information lines or put to much formulas into a report it will limit how you can export it (you have to filter by parts to get the full report) or it will not show the information and you will have to filter the overall report to just visualise the information you need.

Decent BI tool - A good package for quick and easy reporting

Reviewed on 09/09/2020

It's being used across the whole organization, and it helps change data from multiple sources to information for better decision making. This has also given us better access to transnational level data. Which has improved our scope and insights as well as improved our decision making.

Pros

Qlik Sense is very well suited for companies without a proper data warehouse.

- It is fairing very well in sales analysis and KPI management.

- Mini QVDs can act like a mini data warehouse.

- It builds mini data warehouses.

- It's good for the merging of data.

- It connects well with other systems.

Cons

Qlik Sense is good for simple analytics. However, it is not that easy to set up "what if" scenarios, more advanced statistical analysis, and custom stuff.

- The coding of equations is quite complicated.

- Better customer service from sales.

- Better customer service help with solving problems with the tool and upgrades.

- Better user-friendliness for writing equations by the end-user.

Analyze data fast and make decisions quickly with Qlik Sense

Reviewed on 11/02/2020

Our goal was to have everyone reviewing business analytics in one spot and making decisions based on explainable data. We were Excel users for analytics at first. It was OK but we couldn't scale. We dabbled with Tableau. It was dreadfully slow and awkward. We demo'ed a couple more software and chose Qlik Sense due its speed, scalability and performance on mobile devices. Within days of using Qlik, our staff was able to convert 10 most used Excel dashboards into excellent dashboards that gave a much clearer perspective into business operations and finance. On modest server, we have been running Qlik Sense to provide enterprise-wide data analytics and our ability of decisioning has improved significantly due to Qlik.

Pros

Speed. Qlik Sense loads data quickly into memory and analysis is stunningly fast. It is very easy to get the information you need quickly and begin to make decisions. Slicing and dicing the data is very fast as well. Having used competing software like Tableau, Qlik Sense is a breath of fresh air. There's no waiting time during analysis and that keeps a person focused on the application and gets the person curious about information being presented.

Cons

The software's support model is horrific. Qlik uses value added resellers (aka VAR) for the most part. Most VARs I have talked to aren't exceptional and provide absolutely no valuable support after selling the software. They basically add zero value. Qlik has no idea what VARs are doing and VARs have no idea what Qlik is trying to tell them. Getting a license key correctly can take a few tries. Great software, horrific delivery. If I were the CEO of Qlik, I'd change the business model and remove VARs altogether and bring sales, marketing and support right into Qlik.

QlikSense - Complete tool for BI

Reviewed on 11/09/2019

There isn't any problem that you can't tackle with QlikSense.

Pros

I like ETL within QlikSense. You don't need additional software or changes in your database or data warehouse to have full control about your data. You can do this ETL process within each app.

Cons

Some connectors are very expensive, for example SAP connector.

Response from Qlik

Thank you Gustavo!

Best in class ETL capabilties combined with great visualizations and ergonomics

Reviewed on 13/12/2019

Qlik Sense is problably one of the quickest if not the quickest BI solution to implement. With Qlik Sense we were able to design and implement advanced business apps within days. The ability to go back and forth between data sources, data modeling and dashboard within the same interface enables a seamless production of even the most complex KPIs.

Pros

Qlik Sense is a powerful solution with best in class ETL capabilities, which simplifies and speeds up developments and enables a collaborative approach to data. Qlik Sense not only delivers great data visualization features but also offers a comprehensive set of tools which helps to collect data from various sources and deliver insightful dashboards. When it comes to interactivity Qlik Sense set the standard while the competition truly lies behind. I recommand any company on the market for a BI / data viz solution to consider Qlik Sense no matter what their size or industry.

Cons

I hope in the future Qlik will embed Nprinting features in order to generate pixel perfect documents from the Qlik Sense platform. Automated alerts also would be nice as well as a centralized data management for common dimensions and kpis between apps.

Great Tool, good value!

Reviewed on 12/02/2019

Great company, great people, wonderful user community. I highly recommend this tool over others in its space. It's more of a European take on business analytics, than an American, so a bit less flashy in the graphics but loads of more feature-rich functions and abilities.

Pros

Very well architected in the back end, with loads of security and functionality to leverage. Easy to use from a self-discovery standpoint for even the most basic data lover. Covers our 80/20 rule of 80% self-serve and 20% access to raw data for advanced analytics.

Cons

Get's a bit clumsy top administer when your user base grows, unless you staff the tool with a decent administrator. Set your expectations early with the business on these needs, or you will struggle maintaining the tool while fighting for additional resources. A bit pricy at entry level, but more than pays for itself with big revenue gains.

Great software, easy to customize front end apps

Reviewed on 12/10/2016

Qlik Sense has helped us analyze hundreds of millions of lines of data quickly and efficiently, with relative ease to how we were operating previously. We are one of the rare customers that does not work with sales data, rather security services with staffing levels, compliance performance variables, service forecasting, etc.

This has made it a little difficult to get help from the Qlik Community and Qlik directly as every example is geared towards financial information or selling goods. There is a distinct lack of resources out there if your company is in the same boat as us. We have had multiple staff members go through Qlik courses and we purchased the official book for Qlik Sense that was available at the time, which only covers the very basics.

Once you have your data connections flowing, and you spend the time learning and experiencing the product, you will start to benefit a lot more than taking the training (my opinion). The program itself is great, and it is amazing how fast and efficiently you can zoom in and out of enormous levels of data. My example would be to see a yearly total of hours billed, then each click zooms a level --> Year, Month, Week, Day, Hour, Minute of 900 staff members punching at 25 different locations at various times of the day at a 24 hour operation, then right back out to the yearly view. There is no slow down, the transitions are almost seamless.

Pros

The quickness and ease of building tables, charts, graphs, etc. in the front end.

Cons

There is a distinct lack of technical resources when you are not dealing with sales and financial data.

2. It has both ETL and Data Viz layer
3. Business user with structure data can quickly create dashboards out of it and share with others
4.It supports sending static reports through NPrinitng and embedding to another web application through Mash up.

Cons

1. It needs to add more visualization capability.
2. NPrinting development needs to be easy and less time consuming.

Extremely powerful analytics tool

Reviewed on 12/02/2020

We've used Qlik sense for a variety of different things. From analytics to financial statements and even reporting. If you have the experience, Qlik sense can be an undeniably strong tool for any business.

Pros

Qlik sense by itself can be a little lacklustre at times—but with the help of extensions—most problems and shortcomings can easily be overcome, making it very versatile in most situations.

Cons

On the other side of the coin, the base product can be lacking in some aspects without the use of said extensions. You need to do to research, as well as testing to find the right extensions to solve your issues.

The benefits I have had with its use is the ease it has, in addition to being able to drag things without so much limit.

Pros

The drag-and-drop feature is not as limited as many free softwares that are used to create dashboards and reports.
On the other hand, the Storytelling function helps to access the original analysis

Cons

It does not have a function to establish specific schedules to receive BI reports through an email.
Another point against is that the business version is expensive so it is not accessible to many.

The use case for Qlik sense in our project was to sync up customer and customer booking related data for a travel domain website to identify the user traffic and the favorite destinations and hot spots for booking so we can advertise specific products on our website.

Pros

Qlik sense is one of the top tools for data visualization and analysis. The ability to integrate data from different sources to provide rich options of graphing the data and drill down analysis of tables. It provides easy customization and easy reporting for the data.

Cons

The no Linux supports causes compatibility problems some times. Qlik sense is not the best solution one would use for a real-time dashboard. It may require outside assistance for advanced usage.
