Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is a data analysis and visualization software. It operates with an associative QIX engine which enables the user to link and associate data from varied sources and carries out dynamic searching and selections. SaaS-based visual analytics solution that empowers you to collaborate, share insights, and see the whole story in your data anywhere at any time.
Yuvraj Kaushal | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

BI was used to manage our parts and machines. It can be used to manage your factory or systems to properly allocate items to select places. However the system does not respond well, and it can scale well provided you have an actual team knowledgeable in this field. Once you get it set up it works well, but of course, if you try and add new implementations, it can become hazardous to your business.
Michael Diaz-Suarez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Qlik Sense

  • I use the smart search feature often to help locate key parts of information across data sources.
  • The expression editor is fairly easy to learn even if you don't have an advanced background.
  • The data load editor has both advanced and basic functionality depending on your skill level and business needs.
Daniel Huddleston | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Qlik Sense

  • Not a lot of room for customization as we were used to in QlikView
  • UI and default navigation can be very clunky and not user friendly
  • Although the backend is fantastic, the front end experience leaves a lot to be desired. As a developer you don't have a lot of options to customized your app unless you turn to Javascript, CSS and HTML. This is not a common stack you would find in most BI developers
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

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.

SAP has released various versions of SAP BO BI. starting from 3.1 and going to 4.0,4.1,4.2 and latest being 4.3. SAP provides support to these new versions. As new versions keep on coming, support for the very old software goes out of scope from SAP. it is when the different organization plans to get their BO content migrated from a lower version to a newer version. The newer version had definitely added functionality and features which ease the work of users.

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

Tableau is relatively easy to use- it might even be easier to use than Qlik but it was much more expensive. The Engineering team liked Microsoft BI because it was similar to previously used formats, but did not have the user interface that we believe Qlik does better. Price wise, it is hard to beat Qlik. There is less documentation with Qlik, but still a lot.

Some organizations use Spotfire which is far more advanced in terms of its analytical capabilities vs. Lumira/PA etc. but the sharing/storage side of the BI Platform is far superior and much better managed. The ability to create user groups, access levels etc. on BI Platform helps to keep the platform secure.

Return on Investment

Qlik Sense

  • Once an app is published and running good, we can quickly see the time we save to analyze data.
  • It's hard sometimes to realize the money we save by using this system.
  • People start understanding the power of data and asking more questions.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
