Pros

  • Graphic controls are nice, more interactive (than in Qlikview).
  • Story telling is good (although it is not a "drag and drop" functionality). It took me 2 hours of "drag and drop with teeth screeching" to create a first story.
  • Qlik Sense uses the same scripting as QlikView, can consume the same QVD files as QlikView (compatibility is one way, certainly).
  • Rendering for multiple Mobile platforms is provided.

Cons

  • Advanced features need to be built as extensions, can be made available out of the box
  • Email Alerts can be made out of the box

Usability

Very easy to use, and not hard to find info on anything that you may get caught up on.

Support

Based on 3 answers
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.

Implementation

Qlik worked along with us during our implementation, and it made it go quick and easy.

Alternatives Considered

Have used its still widely used (and loved) predecessor QlikView for many years before QlikSense appeared on the scene - identical coding makes porting from QlikView to QlikSense fairly easy if your application is not too complex as there are some differences that can cause issues. QlikView does rely on you getting a better handle on the coding side of things than the more intuitive drag-and-drop style of QlikSense and rivals.

Collaboration and Sharing

Qlik Sense8.2
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.
