Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Qlik Sense

If you have the technical know-how to build out Qlik Sense apps in house or budget allows for consulting help, this is a great tool. There really isn't a BI tool on the market where some programming knowledge isn't needed for setup and maintenance and I feel this is one of the easiest ones out there to get set up, running, and providing you with great data storytelling.

Pros

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.
  • Setting up the apps is a breeze when the platform supports them.

  • The responsive design for Qlik sense is excellent especially when you might not know what device will be accessing the site.
  • For developers they will benefit for the data manager which has features that will help them gain confidence in their data model and make changes easier.
  • Qlik Sense allows users to create stories that are powerpoint-like presentations. Because these are saved with the document it is easier to refer back to the source data when presenting to users. If you have ever been in a meeting where someone is presenting information from an Excel spreadsheet, is then asked a question and says 'We will have to get back to you on that one' , you will see the benefit of this feature.

Cons

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • Cons - Qlik has two development tools Sense and View, the company can merge two products into one as new Customers finds difficult to choose between the products.

Support

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Qlik Sense has it own unique power of connecting the tables together, its power of associating the data model which provides the developer an easy way to develop the dashboard and it is also easy to maintain any changes by other developers in the future. Also, it has an excellent user interface and faster as it stores data on RAM of the computer while processing so less processing time to select and display data.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

QlikSense has great features and utilities to build dashboard with security for different users example region or department wise, collaboration session to discuss among the team with screenshots of visualization which is thereof swap between application and presentation. Reports are distributed over access point in the web browser or even on phone or tablets.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

A great range of data sources and they keep adding more.
Very easy (using the wizard) to merge data from different sources and even add calculated fields.
A very strong scripting language to do even more advanced stuff that cannot be done with the wizard.
