Phocas Business Intelligence

If you would like your data in one place with easy access, this is the software for you. You can have data from multiple systems and bring it into one view so that you have a quick and easily visible dashboard for the data you wish to see.

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

Phocas Business Intelligence

  • Custom reports are simple to create.
  • The ability to manage users and their dashboards is solid.
  • Easy to navigate web interface makes the software accessible from anywhere.
Kenny McGarrity | 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.
Daniel Huddleston | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Phocas Business Intelligence

  • Phocas needs to make it easier to connect to different types of databases.
  • The data in Phocas needs to be updated faster in some cases.
  • It needs to provide functions to create better charts and graphs.
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 a very user-friendly product and is easy to understand. You can get your data from just a quick click and the dashboard loads. You can take the data and drill down easy to find what you are looking for.

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

Support is responsive. You log a call and they will respond quickly and resolve your issues. We have only had great experiences with the support team.

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

Phocas Business Intelligence

Phocas is easy to use for end users and can be used on desktops, laptops, and phones.

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.

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.
