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

  • Discovery - monitoring KPIs. The new Discovery interface is the easiest dashboard I've ever used. I can have a new report on a Dashboard in under a minute.
  • Reporting - the click and drag graphical user interface makes it easy to design reports to answer almost any financial question. It also makes it easy to adapt a single report for 100 different users.
  • Planning - having multiple versions and multiple levels allows us to compare, contrast, monitor and manage with ease.

  • 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

  • The in-house consultants who originally set up Adaptive were poor listeners - and as a result built a model that didn't work for my organization. I had to hire an outside consulting firm with more experience with nonprofits to redo my model. I lost about 1 year of usefulness as a result.
  • Mastering attributes for reporting takes time. The system can do many things, but not without lots of time and effort. I ended up hiring a consultant to build initial reports I needed. I'm comfortable enough now to edit and update, but still have some hesitancy building new reports. One difficulty I have is not knowing the impact a single change, such as the name of a field, can have on everything else associated with that named field or dimension or attribute. It would be nice to have a map showing the links between everything.

  • The license structure is bizarre. The use of tokens is very confusing at first but does get easier to manage the longer you are operational. Knowing when to name tokens or keep them un-named is very tricky.
  • More customization of color and layout/design aesthetics is much needed.
  • Price is a factor as well. It’s hard to see the value proposition up to senior management when Other Tools have a lower entry price threshold.

Support requests are always handled promptly and resolved favourably.Many user support requests arise during initial deployment and use and often represent questions relating to best methods or how to approach their particular situation, which we gladly assist with as we provide the appropriate skills transfer training and assistance.As clients become more knowledgeable in working with the product suite then they tend not to ask many questions.

Alternatives Considered

We previously only used Excel for budgeting and reporting. We now use Adaptive for all budgeting and use an add-on product called Office Connect to build reports that automate our data each month. We find the Office Connect reporting a little more user-friendly than the in-house reporting feature.

Qlik Sense is more mature and has more capabilities that currently lack in power BI.

Return on Investment

  • Cycle time for processing financial statements, budgets, and forecasts are greatly reduced.
  • Visibility of company metrics and drivers has been increased across the company.
  • The ease and ability to quickly create multiple forecasts using different scenarios is now available.
Jack Kersjes profile photo
  • Qlik Sense fills the gap between Excel's ad-hoc reporting and the traditional Qlik View scheduled type reporting. We have considered Qlik Sense Enterprise but feel that the desktop edition is good enough for our needs.
