Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is well suited in any organization that is making business decisions based on performance data whether it be Marketing, Sales, Call Center, etc. It is a great tool especially for mature organizations that have a lot of data to work with. Amazon QuickSight may be not as well suited for newer organizations that are just beginning to drive data/performance metrics. The data available becomes more and more valuable to more that you have.

QlikView

QlikView is a good tool for visualizing data as long as you are trying to visualize aggregated or anonymized data. It can generate most type of graphs and also show you the details of the data that are being graphed. However, you do need to be careful to not include sensitive data in you visualizations since the data is stored in the QlikView database and that could become an attack vector that you will need to watch.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Dashboards can be created easily with basic programming skills. A typical business analyst will not require a developer once the underlying data model is in place.
  • Qlikview can be used as a web based application allowing users to access dashboards anywhere permissions allow.
  • Qlikview provides a variety of pre-built objects that gives designers flexibility to represent data in multiple ways.

Cons

  • One of the primary challenges I've had with Amazon QuickSight so far is that some of the reports I want to build use data from different data sets. Instead of being able to put all of the information I want to see into one report.
  • Some of our Amazon QuickSight reports only update every 24 hours. It would be great to see that data in real-time.
  • I would remove the various time zones from Amazon QuickSight and only use the time zone we are in.

  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

Ease of use, ability to load from pretty much any data source. today I created an application that loaded time sheets from excel that are not in a table format. With Qlik's "enable transformation steps" I was able to automate loads of multiple spreadsheets and multiple tabs easily. Could not do that with any other tool.

Once the data is loaded (which can range from simple to complex depending on the data set), it is relatively easy to create new charts/dashboards

Qlik does have a tendency to push back sometimes stating that the issue is not related to QlikView but the system it is hosted on

My team attended, but I cannot myself rate, but I think it was good as they've successfully launched a training program at our company themselves for users. It was 3-4 day training.

Training was as expected. The demo environments tend to be more fully featured that our own environment, but the training was clear and well delivered.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Alternatives Considered

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

Qlikview is more outdated compared to Qlik Sense. Qlik Sense puts more of the power onto the users to create their own dashboards while QlikView tends to be managed by BI teams.

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • Speed to market is the really big thing. You can attach to multiple data sources quickly and build a consumable model for a dashboard. It doesn’t require IT talent to build. We have built more dashboards and added more users in the last year, then in our entire history. I was at a company of 30k+ employees before, and we didn't have near this level of BI adoption.
  • As a result, we are seeing benefits across business function. For example, within sales, our pipeline has much more visibility. It allows for much faster decisions on things like quotas. One of our biggest power users is in sales ops. She feels her dashboards load 10x faster than our previous tool and she can make changes on the fly.
