Amazon Quicksight is a truly cloud-based solution so it works perfectly fine and saves a lot of expense in terms of hardware and maintenance. We can maintain it by ourselves by giving commands on UI. If you have connectivity issues then it can cause headaches because it's a cloud platform and it's a bit costly as compared to other services
Lakhan Suri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

Qlik is great for environments that need data analytics but do not have the budget for something such as Tableau or Power BI. It was about a tenth of the price of competitors. It took some development work on our end, but ended up saving us hundred of thousands of dollars just in comparison to other Business Intelligence tools, not including the benefits of the smarter business decisions it led us to.

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • Easily to set up for data sources, already supports quite a few of AWS and non-AWS data sources
  • Cost friendly since users are charged only for basis of usage
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • I use the smart search feature often to help locate key parts of information across data sources.
  • The expression editor is fairly easy to learn even if you don't have an advanced background.
  • The data load editor has both advanced and basic functionality depending on your skill level and business needs.

Cons

Amazon QuickSight

  • It is still immature as a cloud-based BI tool.
  • Its functionality is about 40-50% of its competitor's products.
  • Application is still a little buggy and non-intuitive at times.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • Not a lot of room for customization as we were used to in QlikView
  • UI and default navigation can be very clunky and not user friendly
  • Although the backend is fantastic, the front end experience leaves a lot to be desired. As a developer you don't have a lot of options to customized your app unless you turn to Javascript, CSS and HTML. This is not a common stack you would find in most BI developers

It is easy to use and set up no need to put in so much effort. Once build, the dashboard can be used with multiple clients with the same domain. It provides multiple connectivity options which makes it a versatile option for reporting.

Standard user interface and powerful analytic functions is GREAT.As technical person working in the background there are more things to do to make this a completely great tool.Some functions that should be standard requires consult scripting and hours.Now we are using it quite advanced and with many servers and in combination with QlikView. So overall I love the tool. But it could be better and user friendly and powerful in the background

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.

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

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

All of the other reporting platforms my organization has used previously were within our CRM and not a standalone program. In that we were very limited in being able to slice and dice the data the way that we wanted to
Megan Sullivan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

I did not select Qlik Sense. Both Tableau and Power Bi are better solutions than Qlik. Tableau provides better data visualizations. Power BI provides much better ease of data extraction and is more scalable for embedding into software solutions. Both provide better licensing deals (=cheaper) than Qlik. Overall, I would choose Power BI, Tableau then Qlik Sense in that order.

Lakhan Suri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qlik Sense

  • Once an app is published and running good, we can quickly see the time we save to analyze data.
  • It's hard sometimes to realize the money we save by using this system.
  • People start understanding the power of data and asking more questions.
