Single point of contact for your analysis!

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.

Pros

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

Cons

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

QlikView good option if you are into BI

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Reasons for Choosing QlikView

A New way to look at old data

Overall, we have been very happy with our QlikView purchase. It allows us to easily provide insight into our data warehouse for manager and executive level users. While the majority of our usage is reporting on a weekly basis, Qlikview provides the ability to dig deeper and find new business insights into the data than we would otherwise have been able to.

Pros

Ease and speed of implementation are what I like most about our Qlikview deployment. Compared to other Business Intelligence products, Qlikview is a breeze to set up due to its ability to load in data from multiple data sources quickly and easily, with little more than slight changes to an import/mapping script. For users already familiar with the data, importing into Qlikview is quick and easy. Additionally, and importantly, changes to the data dictionary (adding, removing, or modifying fields that you're watching) are very easy to make, and don't require starting from scratch. This sets Qlikview apart from most other Business Intelligence software we considered.

Cons

Qlikview's biggest strength - it's unique way of linking data together in ways you wouldn't have thought of on our own -- can also be a weakness, as it requires a different way to thinking about data than most users have experience previously. However, the color-coded column fields indicating related fields and data links become second nature to users once they are retrained and have a bit of experience with the software.

Reasons for Choosing QlikView

Qlikview was chosen for its quick setup time and low cost in comparison to other Business Intelligence tools on the market. We liked being able to setup the data warehouse and imports on our own, rather than having to employ contractors whenever we wanted to make a change.

Qlikview: An Analytical Tool

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Qlikview - Excellent tool for analysing heavy complex data

The overall experience was amazing (now I can say after couple of years :-) ). This was a very useful tool while doing large complex analysis. If as an organization you can afford this software then this is a must have tool.

Pros

The best part is that you can create the query once and use it multiple times (for all recurring tasks). You can customize your data to look more attractive and presentable through Qlikview. It can also be integrated over your existing ERP (e.g. SAP) and you can get the reports automatically from Qlikview.

Cons

The learning curve is definitely a challenge that I faced. The software is slightly complex and being a finance manager (non IT person) it was difficult for me to understand it initially.
