Likelihood to Recommend

9 Spokes

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

Qlik Sense is an excellent product for analyzing and especially viewing your data on a variety of devices thanks to its responsive design. Qlik Sense also has many excellent features for managing and preparing your data.
A scenario where you might want to consider using QlikView instead of Qlik Sense would be where you have a large number of reports that users require. At the present time in this scenario you might be better off using the container object within QlikView or deciding whether or not you can reduce the number of reports
and still use Qlik Sense.

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.

  • Ease of use: Qlik Sense is relatively simple to pick up once users start playing around with it.
  • Works on mobile devices: Unlike Qlik View, Qlik Sense is designed to work with mobile devices.
  • Listening to customer feedback: Qlik Sense seems to be listening to customer feedback and addressing missing features and issues with every release.
  • Fast release cycle: Qlik Sense comes with a fast release cycle - new release every 3-4 months, if an important feature is currently missing, it may be in the next release.

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.

  • Qlik provides great training materials (webinar, help guide, forum and community) but those lack with re to the advanced features - i.e. how to develop widgets.
  • The cloud solution provided by Qlik, is currently not available for enterprises but only for small companies. You can still implement in the cloud, but it will need to be your private cloud.

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.

Not only can you ask the support team for help, but you can also ask the community. Also with the community there is a vast amount of problems that have already been solved. The problem you are encountering has a likely chance of already being discussed and even solved in the community section saving you time from reaching out.

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.

We looked at both Microsoft Power BI and Tableau. They both have similar functionality and can get to the end results of Qlik Sense. The big determining factor was how much time that we would have to develop reports and stories. We found that Qlik Sense allowed us to develop and edit the overall story in timely manner.

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.

The nice thing with Qlik is that they have worked with EPIC, so there are many hooks were we can add the reports directly into the system that our user use on a daily basis. Qlik Sense offers the ability to share easily across the enterprise on it's platform or we can inject it directly into the operations system

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

Qlik has an underlying associative model that looks for connections of data that has similar properties. So when you throw disparate data from mutiple sources, it does it's best to try and find associations. There are commonalities in healthcare databases like the new Medicare ID called the MBI (Medicare Beneficiary Identifier). Qlik Sense will look for this column and try and associate it across multiple tables.

  • Qlik Sense dashboards are not completely developed and isn't fully available for all the Business Users, but the users who are using it are happy with the application
