D3.js

D3.js is great for visualizing with medium and small size datasets. It's also great for prototyping visualizations quickly and sharing on the web so others can view it without having to install any software on their machines

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

Pros

D3.js

  • It provides multiple ways of visualizing data easily.
  • It is fast and light on system resources. It is built with JavaScript and visualizations can be easily hosted on the web across browsers.
  • It has a huge community backing it so it is easy to find people to help with whatever you're doing.

QlikView

  • QlikView has a simple, relational data model that's REALLY fast. Filtering and changing data is dead simple results are almost immediately available.
  • The free version of Qlikview is almost completely featured, so you roll a pro-level product out to an entire department for really cheap.
  • QlikView is really flexible--if you can imagine it, you can build it.

Cons

D3.js

  • Has a steep initial learning curve.
  • It is slow when dealing with really large datasets.
  • Not great for making maps.
Firaz Peer profile photo

QlikView

  • We found that QlikView can be a bit slow in supporting some forms of encryption. It is web-based and we needed to upgrade all of our server to not support the older SSL and TLS 1 protocols, only support TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. However, QlikView could not run with TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. We had to wait over six months to get a version that would handle the newer TLS versions.
  • There are so many options with QlikView that you can get lost when developing a visualization. There are still items I have not yet figured out, such as labeling a graph with the name of a selected detail item.
  • QlikView works by pulling the data it is going to use for visualization into its database. I am a security reviewer and I need to make certain that PII and PHI is not pulled by QlikView for a visualization, otherwise this could become a reportable indecent.

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

They are still building it out. Just recently I received a contact for an escalation manager. I used to just call my sales guy.

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.

It has taken some time to get used to Qlikview and the backend team behind it. From understanding the new regulations on using less images and also pushing for more tools (such as full compatibility on desktop, laptop, ipad, phone). We were given training on this and have helpful tips to find analytics behind Qlikview but it is very much also a learn as you implement system.

Alternatives Considered

D3.js

Protoviz does not require as much knowledge of programming to build visualizations as with D3.js or Google Charts. Highcharts or AnyChart are other alternatives that are more specific to building charts only
Firaz Peer profile photo

QlikView

QlikView is very similar to Tableau. However, I believe it is a cheaper solution, and that is why our company has chosen QlikView. It has been able to handle large, large amounts of data sets, and has been pretty agile for our business needs.

Return on Investment

D3.js

  • We've only used D3.js as a tool to learn data visualization and programming.
Firaz Peer profile photo

QlikView

  • QlikView development time is 1/10 that of SAP development. The benefit of better information is huge, but IT savings alone are enough to justify the ROI.
