An amazing BI tool fit for purpose but could be further improved

I have used Qlikview for over a year. It was setup at an Enterprise level through a consultant. While I was involved in the setup stage, some of the intricacies of the data model are still beyond me. However, I have been using Qlikview to cater to reporting needs of my clients and making minor modifications to the platform. Licencing has also been a bit of an issue with Qlikview. Hence, while it is well suited for a large organisation with the skills and funds to run and maintain it, for smaller organisations it may not be a great fit.

Pros

Qlikview does not disappoint when it comes to architecture and data consolidation features - two of the most important ingredients for business intelligence tools. The dashboards are fit for purpose and offer easy access to insights. The most loved feature of Qlikview is its lightening-fast filtering.

Cons

Qlikview while a great tool can be unintuitive both for the end-user as well as developers in some ways.

BI tool with nice dashboards

Pros

It's a great tool for multi-tiered reports. You could easily drill-down with just one click. It saves to much time.

Cons

It's not so good as Tableau for data blending. Also end user couldn't create reports without technical knowledge. You should also consider implementation costs.

Powerful Tool with Expensive Costs!

Powerful tool that is overwhelming for users/implementation unless it is a large-scale rollout.

Pros

Very powerful viz tool with strong features under the hood.

Cons

Exceptionally expensive to roll out and very difficult to implement/maintain outside of a large-scale solution.

Like it’s little brother Qlik Sense, this program works well.

We absolutely love the Qlik family of programs. They work well and do as advertised. We had decided to switch to the much-cheaper Qlik Sense but still occasionally use QlikView for the customers we already had in the system.

Pros

While this program takes some time to get used to, once you learn it, it’s a breeze. The ability to manipulate data to make it just as you want is a major plus. Many other programs restrict your ability to show your data in just the way that you want.

Cons

The price can be a bit much. They did listen and thus created Qlik Sense, but at the higher price point, you would expect this program to have the same features as its competitors, but alas, it is still lacking. Not too terribly much, but there are features that it really should have that it does not.

QlikView

Very good

Pros

I am an end user and select from tables the info I need. I like that all the database info is available and I can select fields and it narrows down the tables at the same time.

Cons

Selecting multiple items within tables is a bit difficult.

turning Big Data into Easy decisions

Once I was able to tame it and learn the tricks, it helped me to provide better insights to my customers and also provide them visibility to problems they didn't even knew they had before we implemented QlikView. Usually after our presentations, managers come out with more questions than answers, but not related to the tool, but to the business model they currently have and how to make it more productive, all thanks to Qlikview graphics and display of trends.

Pros

THe flexibility and freedom that BI developers have to work with the suite to create not only management friendly infographics but also the possibility to drill down to any level you need to pinpoint the exact cause of any issues found in a metric, in real time. I must also point out that it can read from almost any data source and provide you with several options and different points of view on what would be considered a useless pile of data that nobody understands or cares about.

Cons

due to its powerful engine and lots of options, the learning curve can be a little longer and steeper than other products.

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

Great tool

I mentioned above - we needed to consolidate, analyse and use data for managing 13 hospitals. There were various ERP systems, HR systems, clinical systems, etc, so we had to implement interfaces and put all data on the same level, then automate the pumping of data, reporting, etc. (this was not in my current job)

Pros

User-friendliness of the tool while doing analyses. Many companies use excel, pivot tables etc., but once you discover how easy and fast it is with Qlik, you will love it. It is also possible to use it for free, with limitations, so you can test it. We have implemented this tool in hospitals, from where we needed the data to be collected on 1 place and then analysed. Normally you have a problem, that you have various sources of data. Each hospital is using different information system (ERP, clinical IS, HR system, etc), but once you set up bridges and automate the interfaces, you will have the same level of data quality from all sources. An the the fun begins.
Especially great is the speed of drilling in data and adjusting the dimensions, because often analysis is about discovery, not a reporting the same charts on and on.
Simply great tool.

Cons

Maybe only that it takes some time to learn how to use it, but compared to many other systems it's good. also you have to learn how to code in data interfaces (there is also a good wizard for that) or you can find a consultant for this (even online), not even this is not a big deal.

QlikView Review

Pros

I have been using qlikview for over a year now. I like all the features and capability it provides to manipulate and display data in forms that are meaningful.

Cons

There are some features that I wish it had - but with Qliksense I think it a game changer. We still use qlikview to support our existing customers.

Cons

It would be nice to have more design possibilities to make it more modern. It Looks Old

QLIKVIEW for deeper reporting

When you need to get more from your current software like QuickBooks, this will give you the ability to pull more information in reports.

Cons

This is a software that you must be trained to use. its time consuming and videos are long and not easy to understand

New to Qlikview - great platform

Pros

Great for tracking all KPIs associated with paid advertising.

Cons

The only con with Qlikview is that if you leave a report untouched for a few minutes the server will disconnect, causing you to restart your search.

Using the Free Version, Qlikview provides a ton of value

We use the free version of QlikView to give every user in the office access to all our data. Without it, their only option for viewing and analyzing data is to either look at each constituent record individually, or pull huge spreadsheets out of the database and hope the data they need is there.

Pros

The free version is fully featured. While it's a pain to deploy, everyone in the office can get a lot of use out of it.

Cons

The UI is super clunky, the fonts aren't smoothed and to have a truly useful product, you have to be your UI designer.

Best dashboard visualization tool

Qlikview enable us to create high performance statistical dashboard which help us provide great user experience to our clients. Another thing is the drilldown capabilities you can have this easily and without scripting or coding.

Pros

I like the most on this software is the creation of formulas for your chart object. it enable you to create formula on what you imagine. You can get the computation the you need. Another is the performance, For me this is the fastest data visualization tool i have used.

Cons

I think the only cons of this software is the price. Its pricey but it worth it.
