Pros

  • The ETL layer within Qlik allows someone with no IT background and little knowledge of any programming languages to immediately fetch data and start using the tool.
  • The Data Loading script gives power users the ability to model the data they bring in to be maximized for efficiency and speed.
  • The Web interface allows us the ability to use custom URL’s to direct traffic into various different points of interest.

Cons

  • NO horizontal and/or vertical scrollbars. Period. Not implemented. This means very little data could be shown on a single sheet.
  • NO adjustment of the SIZE of the fonts and controls. Functionality never implemented in Qliksense (out of the box as of v. 3.1). This means very little data could be shown on a single sheet.
  • You can not rename a bookmark, you can not change the order of bookmarks. This is a functionality that the end user works directly..
  • Each and every control is "dumbed down" (vs the corresponding Qlikview implementation). This means that each anything is kept out of the product (to make product more maintainable and to provide rendering on mobile platforms). Example: List Box. You can not change the search mode (in qlikview you could make it a wild card search or expression driven search out of the box).
  • "Current Selections" control removed. This is the main control in qlikview, that shows the context of the filtering for the user.
  • The script is not 100% compatible vs. Qlikview. References to files, supported in Qlikview are different (have to be modified).
  • Qliksense App V.3.1 freezes, then crashes on me 2-3 times a day (Win.7, 64 bit, SSD drive). It does not instill confidence in the product. Qliksense cloud based (accessed via browser) never crashed on me.

All controls are simplified and dumbed down. A lot of functionality is lost (vs. QlikView).

Alternatives Considered

Tableau is another compelling choice for a self-service BI tool. We ultimately went for Qlik Sense because we already had Qlik View in our enterprise and Qlik Sense could do much of what Tableau was offering then.Microsoft Power BI was also considered as most of our users were familiar with Excel. However, we found Qlik Sense to be a better fit for our purposes.

Collaboration and Sharing

Qlik Sense8.2
Based on 32 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 Sense8.9
Based on 33 answers
It has some great built in connectivity options for SQL DBs and website scraping whlist there are also plenty of addable extensions to cater for a multitude of other data sources that are out there. That said it does currently still fall slightly behind its main rival in terms of connectivity options but with Qlik's rapid development strategy the gaps get ever closer

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.
