BrightGauge

Any data-driven business that requires metrics and performance benchmarks, that need to drill into data for analysis, should use Bright Gauge. If you don't require data that can be displayed in a meaningful way, and that's not important to your business, then this product is probably not for you; otherwise, it's great.

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

BrightGauge

  • Near real-time data in dashboards is a game changer for decision making
  • Easy of setup of gauges, dashboards and reports makes the product versatile
  • Automated scheduled reporting increases visibility and reduces workload.
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

BrightGauge

  • Support quality has decreased since BrightGauge was acquired by Continuum then ConnectWise.
  • It would be helpful to be able to change multiple similar gauges at one time, as opposed to individually.
  • Reporting system could be improved. At the moment, I am not comfortable scheduling reports to be sent to customers.

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

Usability is BrightGauge's strength. Granting the ability of virtually any user to be able to create a dashboard is incredibly valuable. If an organization very simple and straight forward reporting needs then BrightGauge is a perfect fit for them. Connecting to the dataset we used was very quick and easy and I imagine it would be the same for any major data source you would like to pull from.

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

We did not need to use BrightGauge's support for the entire time that we used it. Best support is always the one that isn't needed because nothing breaks.

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

BrightGauge

We looked very briefly at Solar Winds, but due to Connectwise the reporting was not very accurate and was conflicted.
Dale Bradford | 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.

Return on Investment

BrightGauge

  • ROI can be difficult to measure specifically on a tool like this, but quicker, easier access to information is key.
  • Decrease workload and time in creation of reports has definitely created an ROI.
Anonymous | 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
