There's a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it's not too difficult to use. Love all the different features!

Cons

Set analysis can be difficult at times - I definitely rely on the Qlik community for help. Would love to see greater availability in training materials to help newbies like myself.

I would highly recommend Qlik Sense to any company, regardless of size, because it is so easy to install, deploy, and use, and it's very affordable.

Pros

Easy to install, easy to learn, easy to train users. Deployment of Qlik Sense is very straightforward.

Cons

There's a bit of a learning curve for developers, most noticeably with Set Analysis expressions and data load scripting. This is not a huge hurdle, but it can be frustrating for some people. Luckily, there is a strong user community that is very responsive and willing to teach.

Qlik Sense is not QlikView. For those of us who have been working with both might seem like the next iteration of the latter. It is not. It uses websockets instead of HTTP and this has a huge impact in performance and usability. The cloud solution is still a work in progress, but for the needs of most users, enough and recommendable. Disclaimer, I'm a former Qlik employee and current Qlik customer.

Pros

Proven in-memory engine and robust data extraction language. Drag and drop user interface, responsive, ready to create, not just consume, from mobile devices like tablets. Overall performance and very complete integration with web technologies. Open sourced libraries. Fine-grained user access engine.

Cons

Applications are limited to the power of one single computer, although several computers (nodes) can be clustered, they act, at the end, individually (i.e.: not adding up resources from all the servers available). As of version 3.2 lacks a full governance tool and a central library across applications, so what is created for one can be reused in another. Built-in objects are basic, leaving more advanced visualizations to extensions or development of some kind, usually far from the advanced user knowledge (e.g.: widgets).

We still use QlikView for most of our BI projects because the centralized model has merit. I would like to see a more integrated hybrid capability to support both QlikView and Qlik Sense in a dual implementation while addresses the weaker aspects of each.

Pros

Qlik Sense allows me to provide users with a library of BI objects (key indicators, trending charts, and other objects) based on a common data set. Users can choose to view simple dashboards or create complex analyses to support their own projects.

Cons

Some of the implementation and maintenance is still cumbersome, and I would prefer a greater capacity to centralize some areas of the published Qlik library in my organization.

From my experience, most of the though/completed how-to's I solved with the help of the community.
Hence I strongly recommended, in any tool that you are checking validate how large and cooperative is the community.

Pros

- Rapid development and strong supportive community.
- You can build a very nice dashboard and/or reports very fast. Simple reports can be built in matter of minutes! even if your data
is scattered between different files or even different platforms (excels, DB, etc.).
- You can extend the basic (out of the box) platform with Widgets and Extensions
- 'QIik Branch' - open source community sharing Widgets and Extensions that you can embed into your installation.

Cons

- Running in memory DB is fine on the server but on the desktop edition might be a problem for large DB.
- While "Associative Model" is what give Qlik the ease of rapid building dashboards and reports it might cause some odd
results if you are not truly understand this and pay attention while building the data model.
- While there is great training for how to use the basic features, there are not a lot for how to build Widgets and extensions.

Pros

Powerful BI tool for building dashboards

The qlik engine is powerful and fast.
Great Visualizations.

Cons

Qlik’s outdated interface is mostly tab based and property based, and lacks intuitive drag and drop features. In our opinion, Qlik’s interface is also cluttered with visualization tools the average user won’t leverage, and tools that don’t add value to data interpretation

Pros

We looked at many other software packages and Qlik's was the most robust. It's a great all-around analytics and data connection. The cloud platform is able to be used via mobile devices but this is mainly for viewing. For effective editing, a laptop or desktop is preferred. Also, Easy to use drag and drop platform for creating visual graphs. The documentation is just super, you do not need to call technical support for any problems.

Cons

Security rules can be cumbersome as they require scripting. There is a wizard that will let you set up some rules, but if you open some rules it will be necessary to be manually edited. Qlik Sense is highly dependent on memory management. The average user, if he does not understand the data modeling, can not optimize the service as needed.

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.

Easy of use that leverages productivity to the maximum and the final result that looks so much good.

Pros

Among many good features, Qlik Sense has a very good data load interface. The scripts are very easy to learn and also very powerful. You can transform and validate data at load step without have to know any programming language neither SQL, of course, if you know SQL you can make even more complex and complete scripts. The built-in and graphical data load tool is enough in many scenarios, you can even use it to generate the "gross" script and then refine it with your own rules.
Another good point is the customer support and knowledge sharing which exists in their forums, you can find almost anything you ever need there. I never needed to open a customer ticket for technical reason, but some questions regarding licensing and product availability has been quickly and completely answered by e-mail.

Cons

Some minor features which is already available in other BI tools, even on Qlik View, is not available in Qlik Sense. As an example, I miss some kind of "share expression/measure" function in this tool. When we create a measure, we cannot use this as a source to another measure, or to an expression, instead, we must replicate that logic any and everywhere it is required.

I can easily handle big sources of data and deeply analyze them with small efforts.

Pros

It's intuitive and dynamic, I can load the data from many different inputs and analyze with the large set of tools that QlikSense has. It can also handle huge amount of data with ease, and this is a big plus compared to other solutions.

Cons

It sometimes lacks some features that are available in QlikView, which is probably more complete. It also has some graphics issues (not bugs), for example lined charts shows missing data with a straight line instead of empty lines.

I create daily dashboards for my company quickly and with an excellent attractive result.

Pros

I use this software daily, it's a great product to create business dashboards.
The strength of Qlik is the incredible intuitiveness in the development of the dashboard but even more user-usability. is incredibly attractive, certainly (in my opinion) the best in terms of graphic display and data discovery.

Cons

The worst thing in my opinion is the grid, unfortunately does not allow perfect pixel changes also the grid is very large so there is so much opportunity to manage the space of the sheet.
The management of the server security side is a bit 'complex, initially it is not easy to understand how it works but with a little' patience you get everything.

It helped us greatly simplify our monthly management reporting and has been earmarked for a number of Reporting options going forward

Pros

Easy to use interface for data consumers and the ability to generate meaningful measures and KPIs quickly. We can post large amounts of data for our decision makers to digest and analyse without resorting to reams of spreadsheets. Uptake and feedback has been really good and most if not all users are pleased with the development so far and are looking forward to more applications in the pipeline going forward. Being able to find other user created plugins to manipulate data has also been really useful.

Cons

The data connections out of the box don't contain MDX and SSAS connections which would have been nice. The data designer isn't as good as some of its competitors and needing to learn another scripting language slowed down some of the early progress.

An easy and intuitive way to create storyboards for everyone to understand, parting from relative large and difficult to understand and analyze data. The main benefit was a simple way to create quick charts which served as main discussion point with co-workers to make better decisions. So basically a great way to display business information.

Pros

First its usability and design. Regarding the User Interface: the application is well designed and I felt like every button and function was where I would expect it to be. The program is responsive and fluid, you always know where you are and what you should do. Having said that, there is some learning curve to the many features, which are a good thing. The program is easy enough to create a histogram with a simple spreadsheet while also allowing for much more complicated statistics and good looking charts, e.g. plotting geo-data, heat-maps, box-plots and so on.
I specially like the ability to write your own aggregation functions and even more the dashboard where you can put different charts and statstics and build an interactive and dynamic kind of storyboard. The interaction works seamless. If you select (in a bar chart) a specific bar or group of bars, the other charts will automatically adjust to show just the relevant/selected data. The program does not hesitate and performs really well, even with large quantities of data. Support is also pretty solid and there is a lot of information and questions already answered on the online forums. It supports many of the standard data sources.

Cons

The aforementioned ability to write your own functions has a somewhat steep learning curve. You do have to search online for the primary functions you need (though these are well documented). Unfortunately if your data has to much variables or data points, the charts prioritize the specific variable instead of the whole diagram. What I mean by that is that you can end up with a very large horizontal chart in which you have to scroll horizontally to find the other data instead of 'cramming' all variables into the visible space. This depends on taste, but I did not find any way to change that, which brings me to the next point. The charts are somewhat 'customizable' regarding color and design. However, I've used comparable software which allows for much more flexibility in the structure and formatting of charts. A few times it can get frustrating to use the program, mainly for two reasons. 1. The aforementioned displaying of information in a non-customizable way and 2. the lack of knowledge of how the program really works that hinders you from doing exactly what you want. But of these aspects become less of a problem, the more you use the program.

Used Quick to pull data from our LMS. The data was clean some of the time but the filters didn't always pull exactly what was needed.

One of the easiest to learn and handle software. I had to learn Qliksense because of some small project I did at school and was really impressed with the ease of use this software had. Also, the abundance of training material and videos online also make the software really useful overall.

Pros

User experience - ease of use and functionalities

Cons

missing some features such as ease to rename new variables etc.

This is a great platform for crunching your data quickly and producing brilliant dashboards. I have been working with a consultant to get some new dashboards built for our leadership and executive team, and it is most certainly one of their favorite tools to utilize. It is so much easier to set up than products from other vendors I've used that there really is no comparison.
