    Though it really has its place in the market for simpler deployments, do take care when planning bigger or complex deployments as the servicability of such a deployment is difficult and tricky (but doable).

    Pros

    -Qlik code is easy, Qlikview-code is easy reusable
    -InMemory works!
    -Lots of help online
    -In the end it will get you allmost there...

    Cons

    -Visualisation not on par with 'the other big-ones'. No proper customisation, and a lot of basic visualisations are not available (Band chart, Radar chart, Combi-plot).
    -No analitics/statistiscs toolkit.
    -Presenting data/apps takes forever in a citrix-environment.
    -Developing a set of dashboards/apps in Sense feels clumsy and messy. There is no hierarchy, keeping track of sequential apps.(Extract/Translate/Presentation) is quite a thing. Think debugging...
    -No check-in/check-out tooling, no folderstructures for unpublished apps but a cluttered personal workspace so a lot of discipline and creative thinking is needed.
    -Building a corporate environment in Sense feels actually quite 'dirty'.

    Pros

    QlikSense is one of those applications that you always hear about when looking for great tools for interactive report generation. It is just 'good' overall, not the best, from my own personal experience at least. Comparing it to Tableau, it stands no chance.

    Cons

    Very weak customer service, don't expect to get much help when you are stuck, unless you are part of an online community that might help you. Overall it's just OK, but I personally would consider other applications.

    Cons

    They advertise that the use of their associative engine is very versatile, but ultimately everything needs to be done on the back end of you want to get the most out of the software.

    Pros

    Set up is very approachable, we partnered with a third party implementation company to do the go-live. Interface is straight forward, no complex data cubes when customizing individual elements. The filtering is very simple and we really enjoy interfacing with clicking on different elements to work your way through the page.

    Cons

    The actual usefulness of graphs was less impactfull in reality than we thought. Users mainly use simple line graphs, mainly pivot table functionality. System is slow at times, but that may be related to our cloud set up.

    Ability to show reports to high level execs.

    Pros

    There are simple options for importing data for the layperson, but there is also the option to directly import using SQL queries.

    Cons

    "Set analysis" is required to perform anything other than a simple sum or other function. Set analyses are not very straightforward and seem to overcomplicate things.

    Pros

    Great tool that allow you to slice and dice your data at super fast speed. It can parse huge amount of data and have it readily available for your analysis. Another super cool thing about the tool is ability to connect to so many different data sources

    Cons

    The expansion of the system is a pain, since it parse all the data onto RAM, you need to increase your server/machine capability tremendously to be able to process more data

    Nprinting needs a lot of improvement. There is no option for report delivery. The extensions need to be certified by Qlik so that we can use them with no worries.

    Pros

    This program creates very versatile and beautiful dashboards. It is very easy and simple to upload personal data and to create tables and graphs. There is not much of a learning curve and is very quick to pick up.

    Cons

    My only complaint is that there is no easy way to organize sheets that are created in the app. There is also a limitation to the advanced customization of the graphs.

    Pros

    Connecting to data sources is simple and manipulating the data into a usable, non-bulky data model is simple using the Data Manager feature. Creating visualization is a breeze. There is plenty of assistance in the Qlik forums for anything you need help with.

    Cons

    As it is meant to be an easy-to-use design tool, there is little room for personalization and customization as these would be considered more advanced features. Sometimes it would be nice to be able to manipulate the objects as you can do in QlikView.

    As an administrator it is far more easier to administer than QlikView as you can write scripts to assign licences.

    Qlik Sense administration is more granular and therefore can be seen as complex compared to QlikVIew

    Pros

    Qlik Sense data visualization building gives users tons of insight and connections that they may not have thought about. I like the fact that linking data connections and creating custom dashboards is so easy. The cloud hub is easy to access especially with mobile devices. This is especially important for traveling sales managers. We looked at many other software packages and Qlik's was the most robust. It's a great all-around analytics and data connection deal than others currently on the market.

    Cons

    The cloud platform tends to load slowly if you are not in a good wifi area. That is, in any case, even if you have a good internet connection it takes too long to move from sheet to sheet, and this causes delays during remote meetings.
