Qlik Sense

This is a great tool if you have several disparate sources and need to do some hands-on data blending. A challenge to use if you have data both in and out of the firewall, and operate in a highly secure environment. One of the best features of the tool is that you can spoon-feed users what you want them to see/use; it is definitely not a “build it and they will come” tool, you need to spend a lot of time up front tailoring what you are building to be highly successful.

Pros

  • Visualizations available natively. Account and pre-sales team can build their own visualizations and analytics with data.
  • The amazing UI - provides a great experience while trying to organize data using dashboards. Having been a regular user for over a year now, the kind of things you can learn just by yourself on the fly is simply amazing. The dashboards also provide great flexibility with a lot of options.
  • Qliksense provides a quick and efficient way to scan data immediately and helps businesses make better decisions. Definitely, a must-have tool for all kind of Analysts dealing with millions of rows of data as it provides a simple yet powerful way to get business insights.

Cons

  • Qlik provides great training materials (webinar, help guide, forum and community) but those lack with re to the advanced features - i.e. how to develop widgets.
  • The cloud solution provided by Qlik, is currently not available for enterprises but only for small companies. You can still implement in the cloud, but it will need to be your private cloud.

Hire Qlik consultants. It's better done by them or with their aid.

Alternatives Considered

Qlik Sense is more mature and has more capabilities that currently lack in power BI.

Collaboration and Sharing

Qlik Sense8.1
Based on 30 answers
For the Qlik Sense DESKTOP edition, sharing and collaborating is quite limited (after all it is free) - you need to manually send a file to your colleague to save in specific folder (cannot use net/cloud folder) and there are no access control capabilities. Those are available in the Enterprise version and no need to use file sharing (Enterprise version is installed on a server).

Data Integration

Qlik Sense8.8
Based on 31 answers
A great range of data sources and they keep adding more.
Very easy (using the wizard) to merge data from different sources and even add calculated fields.
A very strong scripting language to do even more advanced stuff that cannot be done with the wizard.

Return on Investment

  • Qlik Sense fills the gap between Excel's ad-hoc reporting and the traditional Qlik View scheduled type reporting. We have considered Qlik Sense Enterprise but feel that the desktop edition is good enough for our needs.
