Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense Enterprise is an ideal BI solution for mid- to large-scale organizations, especially those with many on-premises data sources. The overhead of administration would make Qlik Sense Cloud the better platform for small organizations or those who have already moved much of their data infrastructure into the cloud. The robust data modelling allows many wildly different data sources to be cleansed and organized with robust flexibility.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

We need to create/open reports every month. The manual way would be to download data manually from SAP BW and then paste in Excel to start formatting/cleaning. With SAP Analysis Office, we create a report once. Next month when we open it, we just need to change the time frame and refresh the data. It takes 5 mins to open and update data

Pros

Qlik Sense

  • Qlik Sense reports the data from the QVD files really well so the end-user experience is always optimum. Hardly any wait time is ever noticed at all which is magnificent compared to some other products in this space.
  • The fact that Qlik Sense is also already fully mobile device-ready is a big bonus. Other applications have to have different variations either declared upfront or at least tested but Qlik Sense works really well whether via the designated proprietary Qlik Sense Mobile App (from the App store) or just in a standard browser like Safari.
  • Data ingestion times are really optimum too since millions of records can be added to a QVD file in only a few minutes. This helps our organization with optimizing the overnight loading window.
  • The background loading tasks scheduling is also user-friendly and robust with good error logging and failure/success monitoring available.
  • We use SAP for transactions and SAP BI for data warehousing so it is very useful to also use Qlik Sense along with the proprietary Qlik Sense SAP Connector so that data can be retrieved as datasets from BW Query results. This helps leverage all our investment in the BW modeling including the full SAP BW query catalog when ingesting data into the QVD files. At the same time, the SQL connector can retrieve data from our SAP HANA database with ease too.
  • The ability to develop on the iPad is also a bonus that is often not available in other tools in this domain.
  • The security modeling is relatively easy to maintain and integrates well with our Azure identity management system. This all makes user management tasks very seamless and robust, ensuring that only those that really need access to the Qlik Sense system are granted hat access and if they leave their access is quickly revoked.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • This software is easy to initially learn, and very powerful in producing reusable reports.
  • It is much faster than my company's internal manual queries. The ability to build off of a saved query and share queries to other users is a great positive.
  • My favorite part is that you can run queries in the background and it does not interfere with your current work or slow your computer down.

Cons

Qlik Sense

  • Limited options when adjusting colors of graphs and charts
  • Limited options for adjust[ing] how graphs and charts look or [how] users interact with them
  • If QlikView has 1000 knobs to turn, Qlik Sense has 100. This hurts developers ability to build robust reports and applications
  • Many new features are cloud only
  • No unified hub for View and Sense for on premise solutions

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • The installation can be very complex and time-consuming, it requires a lot of planning and foresight as to what role the software will play in the organization.
  • The software has a relatively large learning curve that takes dedicated users months to get comfortable with, the UI is a bit intimidating for new users.
  • SAP could organize their help better, it can be difficult to find dependable solutions to issues via their website and support channels.

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

From a server and client side perspective. the Business Intelligence Platform provides a foundation for all aspects of content development, distribution, analysis, collaboration and self service. Ease of use from targeted content delivery through controlled accessibility. Content exporting in the format of the users choice. Scheduling for internal or external delivery. Public and private folders for secure content access when requied. Web based for viewing on the users device of choice without the need to download additional applications.

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

When we implemented 3.1, we had a tough time managing the system: It took almost a year to stabilize.

With 4.0, we want to roll out to more users, and are holding back because of fears about the performance issue

Overall, the tool (Web Intelligence 4.2) is fast and solid. One issue is a dependability on JAVA for a full feature report creation/edit capabilities (as opposed to limited HTML option). Second, planned end of JAVA support by major browsers (Chrome is already not supporting JAVA applet).

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.

We are getting the BI support from our SAP support company. Although they are good at some basic staff, they are unable to answer our questions for some complex structures. Sometimes we got the feedback that our request was not possible to implement, however later we found there were some methods available.

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.

Hire specialists and experienced staff. Mix some beginners so that everyone is not a leader but a learner too. Plan well; architect well; break down implementation in small steps and move towards larger steps. Create a centralized and authorized SAP Business Objects implementation team.

Alternatives Considered

Qlik Sense

We evaluated Domo, Tableau, and Qlik Sense. We chose Qlik because of it's ability to better work with multiple and large data sets. Qlik Sense has the ability to concatenate all measurable (fact) data into a single table instead of needing to create multiple fact tables. This keeps the data model streamlined and everything related.

We selected SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) based on price. It can stack up against others in terms of price and honestly, that's about it. Salesforce Commerce does a hell of a better job at handling it. However, in the space of Business Intelligence, SAP can do more, and that's why at the end we went with it

Return on Investment

Qlik Sense

  • Very positive from a Corporate level, provides insights that were previous done ad hoc and not nearly as in depth.
  • Single source of truth for the organization - reduces the number of reports with different methodologies.
  • Easy to track status of projects and ensure everyone is on the same page.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • By generating and distributing reports in a timely manner, we were able to save millions of dollars for the company which otherwise would not have been visible.
  • Almost realtime dashboard, saved the company a huge amount by showing the outages and kept the company from buying a tool to do just that.
  • It showed the customers who were not paying the bills and were missing in the system due to some loophole. This was visible by doing reporting on the theft usage of electricity.
