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.

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.

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.

I recommend the tool. Friendly user, you can have very good dashboards using only a simple spreadsheet.

Pros

Low cost against BO, Cognos,...
You can simple use Tables, databases, web tables and a lot of other kind of connection to use the data.

Cons

It don´t have a flexible map as a standard. You should acquire a "Geo Analysis" add in for a best use.

QlikView is a powerful, flexible BI visualization toolkit that lets you show your users what's in their data

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

QlikView is an excellent tool for data visualization. Developers can create intuitive solutions with relative ease.

Pros

QlikView has a positive 80/20 ratio. The first 80% of what you need to know (everything you need to know for most visualizations) can be learned in 20% of the time. The remaining 20% (complex expressions, extensions, and other advanced options) takes 80% of the time to learn.

A skilled analyst can sit down on day one and create a useful, meaningful QlikView solution. An advanced user could spend years learning new possibilities and creating more advanced offerings.

Cons

QlikView is an "in-memory" BI tool, which does offer speed and data manipulation capabilities. However, the data model is loosely managed. If it's not structured carefully, loading and processing times become unnecessarily long. The underlying model could be strengthened and otherwise improved to help the platform scale to larger projects.

After implementing 3 projects, I was so convinced I am not even close to not so familiar, not so user friendly, not so popular tool to the people who would ask to use.

I read its manual and couldn't code anything close to what I could quickly on my day 1 in Power BI and Tableau kinda tool

Pros

Good Graphics
Good slicing feature
Can handle terabytes of data
Its in memory stuff brings gigs of server storage space that might turn a pro into a con

Cons

Implementation cost per user are too much that small to medium sized business cant even think of affording it.

Infra cost would rise

Coding they say is easy but not really that easy especially for non It users
Performance issues are so severe
Poor customer support

Just a year ago, We started implementing this tool at our two systems, we felt some problems, but as we started moving deep, we started attracted to this tool because of its rich features and its capabilities that we can not think of our work without this now.

Thanks to the team who developed this, good work guys.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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..

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
