About QlikView

QlikView is a BI data discovery product for creating guided analytics applications and dashboards tailor-made for business challenges. The software enables user to uncover data insights and relationships across various sources with QlikView’s Associative Data Indexing Engine. This tool exposes data that is not found with query-based tools.

Additionally, the program allows users to build and deploy analytic apps without requiring professional development skills, helping drive faster response to changing business requirements, shorter time to value, and more insight across an organization.

QlikView has a patented in-memory technology that decreases the need for IT workers as the software has an inference engine to cultivate associations in data automatically. The tool consolidates data from multiple sources to provide centralized data for high level reporting. The intuitive click through dashboards makes it easy for non-IT professionals to understand hidden trends. The application administers user access and control through the web-based management console.

    Completed more than 15 implementation across domains like Government, Distribution, Retail, Insurance,Manufacturing and services.

    Have overall 10+ years of IT experience and 6+ years in BI

    Worked with one of the Fortune 50 retail giant who uses QV for more than 200 business users around the world across regions. i would say most of the people are happy with the way how QV is helping them on decision making. Since its a retail business, QV handles more volume of data with ease. Thanks to their In-Memory technique.


    1. Associate linking
    2. Self Service - Business users can create their own charts and data table with little technical knowledge
    3. Inline (Mapping ) for adhoc dimension or values
    4. QVD can act as data cubes or even as Data warehouse for medium size companies
    5. implementing QV will take less time compare to traditional BI
    6. Partner eco- system and support is very good
    7. One of the best In-memory BI tool available in the market currently


    1. Initial investment is little high but they have release Qliksense to counter it and it comes with Saas Model as well with more animated data visualization

    Been using QV for 2+ years now, have a lot of reports for almost any department in my companny, sales, buying, wharehouse inventories, financial, etc, etc all of them are productive resources for my internal users.


    Once you set up your "reports" (IN QV they are called projects) there is no room to get things wrong, the final user will be able to run those reports and play with them with no worries of deteling something or change the report setting, as this can only be done by the admin, therefore the final user will be free to play and apply as many filters the report may have. On the other side, you will need some training to get the reports done, QV uses a report designer you will need to setup/install to build your projects.


    QV as a company has some other products that all are but the similar to QV they have "QV Sense" is the "newer" version of QV that has a lot of support for mobile devices, dont get things wrong, QV has either support for mobile, but you need to build your reports thinking how will they look on a small display.

    Qlikview: An Analytical Tool

    Reviewed on 18/01/2016


    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.


    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.

    I have being worked with QlikView for last 5 years and It was one of the best BI tools in the world. The level of slice and dice is amazing. Data holding capacity and power of deep level analytics are simply outstanding.


    It has more analytical power. And the data holding capacity is excellent. Further it is easy to use and the integrations are also user friendly.


    It needs the support of a programmer to create charts and end users can't do much. Graphics are low compared to newer BI platforms.

    Very powerful tool having capacity to solve every business problem. Can we used as ETL tool for transforming & modelling of data. It can be used to store the data in different formats like qvds, csv etc.


    QlikView has very powerful ETL script editor with many functions. Also measures can be calculated with help of set analysis. Fastest in-memory tool. We can create custom objects as well.


    User interface is not that pretty. Less availability of charts. Geo analytics map can have many more features like enabling satellite view. QlikView is not on cloud but a on-premise tool.
