Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is good when you want to interrogate data quickly and the data is in the AWS eco-system. QuickSight is not a great option if you want pixel-perfect visualizations with a lot of functionality. Overall, it's a solid solution but needs to mature a lot if it wants to become an enterprise solution.

Qlik Sense

The more people need access to data and the more they need to navigate within the data (drill-down etc.), the more suitable. As it runs on any environment other than Linux, it is useful in mixed systems with MACs or windows. Not really on a Linux platform (neither server nor client). If there is only one data analyst, QlikView is better as Qlik Sense really distributes the data out there for people to do their own analysis (filtering, sorting etc.).

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • Amazon QuickSight is a really easy program to learn how to use.
  • Amazon QuickSight allows our team to customize the data using the various data sets, which makes the available reports incredibly powerful to our organization.
  • Our organization has the ability continually adjust our reports and build new reports as business needs change.
  • Even though our organization has different reports built for different departments, each department can still access and understand reports from across the company.

Qlik Sense

  • Easy to produce quality visualizations and reporting easily, but it still has the ability to perform more complex functions for more experienced users.
  • Ability to aggregate information from multiple sources of data. It has the ability to perform most extract transform and load (ETL) functions without the need for another product. This information can be stored in a proprietary file format for fast loading and distribution to individual business analysts so everyone is working from the same source of truth.
  • Has a very good community of support. Most questions can be answered through the product forums without the need to contact support.

Cons

Amazon QuickSight

  • You can not use it as a primary reporting tool as many of the features are missing.
  • For complex reports for business, users need to get help from an IT person.
  • Business users time will waste in developing reports, it should have a version where we can promote the report from one environment to other.
  • Sharing report with the user who is not added in IAM is complex.

  • If you do not have NPrinting, exporting a sheet/reporting is not very neat. The PDFs are clunky and you cannot see any information that is cut off by a chart's space restrictions on the app sheet.
  • While this is an improvement point already, the amount of unsupported extensions out there that do not function perfectly with each new upgrade is a bit "Wild West"y... Again, there is already something being done about this and it really is more of a user problem than a Qlik problem, but something we are somewhat irked by every once in a while.
  • The ability to really customize a chart (in terms of formatting, color scheme, etc.) is just not quite there yet. And by "there" I mean perfect. Only limited color schemes out of the box and some of the formatting and options are not very complete. For instance, if I want to resize a chart or visualization, I am limited by the square-grid that is available. Granted, you can reduce or enlarge the size of the grid to help, but being able to only have rectangles makes real-estate an issue in many application dashboards.

Hire Qlik consultants. It's better done by them or with their aid.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

QuickSight is best suited to augment your other BI solutions, not as a primary tool. It still very immature when you compare it to products like Tableau, Qlik, Microsoft Power BI and others. However, it is very easy to get connected to data sources and a good way to interrogate data if the data is in the AWS system or database

Qlik Sense

So, I also use and like Microsoft Power BI, but most of my non-technical staff prefers Qlik Sense when they need to run visualizations based on setup applications. It is just a bit more user friendly for those without a lot of technical skills.Tableau is great too and is something we continue to evaluate and consider. I think all three tools bring something unique to the table and are worth serious evaluation for data visualizations and business intelligence use cases.
