    Pros

    Qlikview provides a platform for data analysis that integrates high levels of flexibility which allows for broad application and usage by large cohorts.

    Cons

    While Qlikview is very flexible it can also be somewhat clunky or challenging to navigate in terms of getting the precise data required because of the myriad of controls and options.

    Pros

    The easy to use and customize. Qlikview allows you to develop different dashboards and tools to analyze data. The tool is very useful in filtering data and comparative analytics.

    Cons

    The tool can slow down and crash often depending on the size of data its processing. Not sure how to enhance the tool to avoid this and it sure beats Microsoft Access/Excel, but there are data constraints.

    Performance, easy use, less maintenance required.

    Pros

    Dashboard Designing made so easy in this Tool.
    Bunch of formatting options and features.
    Scripting capabilities took this tool to next level to build more complex dashboards in a simpler way.
    Implementation and maintenance is so easy compare to Business Objects.
    Data integration, mapping capabilities, drill functionalities are too good.
    In Memory capabilities gears up performance.
    Another big advantage is, just one product.

    Cons

    Not that great when you work with data sources like BW and Big Data.
    R integration is not possible.
    For Detailed reporting is it not the tool preferable.
    If you are looking for a great scheduling and publication capabilities you may not like this tool since this requires a separate setup like NPrining etc..

    Value for Money
    Pros

    What I liked the most was the functionality to compress the data to a level that allows you to handle large amount of information without affecting the performance. This same functionality makes the files take up less space on the computer. The most outstanding functionality of this application is the possibility of analyzing a large amount of information dynamically, since the graphics are updated in real time, as you select filters or specific data.

    Cons

    What I liked least about this software was the way in which the data is loaded, since it is done through a script that if you does not know the basics in the database can be complicated. The other thing I did not like were the graphics, because they are not so attractive, they look old.

    Pros

    1. Qlikview's capability to handle large volumes of data is really good. It reduces the size of datasets to one-tenth of original size when converted to QVD formats.
    2. Strong data management capabilities
    3. Adaptors available to connect to a variety of data sources

    Cons

    1. Visualizations and user interface is not as great as other competitive solutions - can be improved
    2. Doesn't have "Activity" feature which Tableau has - when you click on a graph/data point, you move to another graph in some other dashboard - this becomes very interactive when you want to present the effect of one thing on another
    3. You need to know a bit of programming language to use the tool completely

    I have used Qlikview for couple of years. Qlikview has impressive user interface. The dashboards are colorful and iconic. You can create global map charts, interactive bar charts, etc.

    Cons

    To apply some transformations, you need to know Qlikview scripting. Being a business user, I would prefer to not learn any programming and have all the features without scripting.

    Using QlikView has helped me produce nice graphics that are completely zoomable to the end user. QlikView also has some nice graphical and analytical capabilities that help me communicate my message.

    Pros

    QlikView's data visualization options are nice, although not best in class. The way QlikView offers zoom in capabilities is much better than any other data visualization tool I've ever used, and the ability to share analysis is great.

    Cons

    I had an enormous difficulty connecting QlikView with various data sources, although once connected, the system works fine. QlikView's graphics are a little different than other data visualization tools - like the zooming - which are sometimes an advantage and sometimes a disadvantage.

    Pros

    QlikView allows us to rapidly share information in a predictable way. It is credited with bringing in-memory analytics mainstream.

    Cons

    QlikView relies on drop down menus and this seems a little antiquated in this day and age. It scored slightly below the survey average in customer support.

    We're able to compile client data in secure reports and transmit quality data in a secure fashion with proper controls in place.

    Pros

    The support I receive is always prompt and helps to address my concerns. I feel like I'm working with smart people who are fully capable of helping me solve my reporting problems.

    Cons

    Probably the most tricky thing about using Qlikview is that you have to be intelligent enough as an Administrator to get them the information they need to create your report writing... hopefully if you're running a business you have someone who understands your reporting and IT frameworks well enough to communicate with the Qlikview team to help them know your business/industry/reporting needs.

    The tool is able to slice and dice the data of our sales into numerous different ways to look at the data. I like the visuals of the interface, making is simple to understand.

    Cons

    The program seems to take a long time to refresh after every click. Also, it would be nice to be able to set it to not pull the data and work, until you have made all selections. Not sure if this might be a functionality we did not turn on, but it should be standard.

    Brilliant if you have had the correct training!

    Pros

    Can pull in data in its rawest form and make sense of it by creating charts, lists, graphs.
    You can design and develop almost anything and can link in other pieces of data from Excel or tables files sat on the server.

    Cons

    This is not the easiest software to use and will require extensive training which in itself. Since using this I have had 2 separate training courses to get my head around the coding and scripting side of it. The design part os easy if you have someone already transforming the data for you.

    Qlikview has an exceptional data mapping engine which makes setting up data sets a breeze. You will be up and running in no time, connecting to your data and viewing information in any one of a variety of formats.

    I've only been using the product for a reasonably short time, but this provides a lot of flexibility to allow users to control the data which they would like to see.

    Cons

    I've found QlikView to be really easy to use in most areas with the exception of making changes to views once configured. The UI could be a little more user friendly when considering how and when to make changes as an administrator.
