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 allows me to quickly process data and tell the story. The visualizations allow me to quickly tell the story and tailor that story to the specific audiences. We use this to identify areas within our expense reporting tool where we need to provide additional training or correct behavior to bring employees in compliance with our expense reporting policies.

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

  • Centrally deployed guided analytics apps and dashboards.
  • Custom and embedded analytics.
  • We like the enhancements that Qlik has done over the years starting from QlikView to Qlik Sense to QlikInsights. Our users have embraced the use of Reports and Dashboards that we have been able to provide with Qlik.
Prabhu Mohapatra | 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

  • Use Standard SQL so that new staff can build sheets and apps quickly using existing knowledge
  • need to be able to select specific dates for filtering data (i.e., show data for all clients served between 7/1/2019 and 6/30/2020) as this would address the majority of our data requests from contracts and development
  • Provide a "user training" section of the site that allows end-users to have a guided training on how to navigate QilkSense and use Key features like the snapshot tool or how to apply multiple filters to a particular view using the organization's data, not a random dummy data set.

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

Qlik is available when we need it. The only issue we experience is memory on the server, Qlik is very memory hungry and if you loads lots of data having enough memory to support the dataset is important. This needs to be taken into consideration as performance issue occur if you don't

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.

Qlik delivered on its promises and has been key to supporting the new world we live in . If we hadn't chosen Qlik sense when we did life would have been harder and our organisation wouldn't have been able to mange the CoVid-19 pandemic the way we have . We live in a data led world and Qlik does that for us.

We evaluated over a dozen vendors when we selected Qlik; among them I felt it had the best internal data model philosophy leading to much more powerful self-service analytics and apps which are easily extensible to include other visualizations. I think it was a reasonable choice at the time but as our analytics needs have changed over the last two years I've begun thinking about other options with a little more focus on rapid development and more visualization and customization options when creating dashboards, and if we must sacrifice some end-user versatility in exchange then we'd probably make that choice
