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.

Likes Least

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

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.

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.

Likes Least

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

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

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

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

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.

Likes Least

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

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.

The implementation and learning curve with building dashboards is quite high; we contracted with a Qilkview partner to deploy the platform, but developing our own dashboards has been a long process requiring IT resources

Recommendations

Consider the total cost of ownership when deploying it including the cost of a consultant, the expensive hardware requirements depending on the size of your database

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.

Likes Least

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

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.

Qlikview is a great tool
1.To build aggregations and analytics on fly.
2. Charts and visualizations are best.
3. Relational data model is easy to build and provides lots of flexibility to analyze data.
4. Tool can read data from many data sources and ERP like SAP
5. Lots of technology upgrades and integrations like NPrinting, GI maps are very useful features.

Likes Least

1.Language syntax is close to SQL but not exactly. Its sometimes confusing.
2. Does not provide lot of flexibility with objects and sheets


Recommendations

Best tool to visualize data all at one dashboard by reading from multiple data sources. Connectors have been greatly improvised to smoothen the connectivity with lots of data sources.

If you don't have a technical background, I can see the scripting language being difficult to master. However, if one is using a clean data source that requires little to no transformation, the product is very easy to get started.

Recommendations

Trial and error is the best way to learn. Use a personal set of data that means something to you.

Eventhough Qlikview is a great tool to manage and create visualizations, is not a reporting tool, is not easy and intuitive create reports within Qlikview, you need to acquire some other reporting tools like Nprinting.

Qlikview is one of the best BI products in the market, it allows the user to understand their own data and take decisitions faster than other tools due the user has the power to discover himself what is happening with his business.

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.

Likes Least

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

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.

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.

Likes Least

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

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.
