Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is not appropriate for real-time dashboards. It is fantastic for EOD or dashboards which need to be refreshed every 10-15 minutes. Qlik Sense makes a fantastic Data Warehouse, if that is what your ultimate goal is. If you have the resources, you can extend the out-of-the-box functionality to suit your needs. Unfortunately, if you do not have the resources, you may struggle with the back end of Qlik Sense.

SAP Lumira Discovery

Lumira is especially well suited where you want to customize and create tailored benchmarks for different segments of your business. Whether that means making information available to department heads, directors or even account directors and managers.What really is valuable is the confidence you have when using the dashboards for decision making and monitoring the success of those decisions in a tailored manner.

Pros

Qlik Sense

  • Running consistently without errors which gives users confidence in the system and its numbers
  • Easy to configure and customise to adopt to manyfold sources (facebook, google analytics, filemaker, SAGE, various Excel sheets)
  • Easy to navigate within the table and graphs (drill down, slice & dice, filter, sort) and easy to export results.
  • Geoanalytics is cool
  • Very customizable user and role based security

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • The software is good for charting data to present visualized information for current and upcoming ideas of business transactions and opportunities.
  • Data sorting and charting for use with SAP and can be used by users to support data and visualize what is being highlighted.
  • Value wise Lumira is a very simple and straightforward tool to use and is user friendly.
Trever Voit | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Qlik Sense

  • Visualizations have sometimes worked slightly differently between releases requiring the need for some re-work when upgrading. Most of these have been appearance only but are still annoying.
  • Enterprise product should come with the ability to email common reports. People still want/need this but don't need all the functionality of the Nprinting product. Basic email functionality should not need to be a separate purchase. Perhaps give the basic functionality with the product to give people exposure to it would actually increase the take rate on Nprinting.
Wayne Antinore | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • Control over data import formatting - for example where amount and currency values are imported there is not enough control over the transformation and formatting and this has caused us data import difficulties where values read have been truncated due to punctuation in the amount fields.
  • The user interface is simplified, but the terminology and screen layout do not always make it obvious how to start the process for a new user - for example to add a new data source or create a new report.

Any visualization tool must provide greater and easy access to corporate varied data sources, ability to provide an easy data acquisition mechanisms both at design and run-time. Another feature is support of variety of devices, form factors and equally good performance to visualize the data. Aslo the ability to protect organization's sensitive data. I don't think Lumira is strong in any of the above mentioned areas.

Lumira is a desktop application runs in its own JVM. It installs its own java runtime libraries to avoid any core java version conflicts. The availability of the application is completely relies on individual machine hardware configuration. On a decent desktop, it performs well and always launches in either 32 or 64 bit environment based on the hosts system's OS

The performance is linear with amount of data that is being explored. We have done some benchmarks acquiring 10million data cells without having any performance problems. We need to make proper adjustments to jvm run time properties to start with higher heap size and other parameters that optimizes the run time performance

Most of the user guides are pretty comprehensive and very easy to understand. The product itself is designed to be self-serve tool, did not need much of the end-user training. Most of the training we had is to how to read the data, how to explore the data, how to acquire the data etc.

Installing the desktop software on end-user machines is always challenging. The machine specifications are the biggest factor when running Lumira and be able to handle large datasets during data exploration. This often demands beefy machines at least for power-users. Although Lumira software licensing is not a big problem but managing partner's extensions and keeping track of their individual licenses may be an issue. If there is a way to bundle the more popular extensions such as vSQL or vOLAP should be bundled in core product and offer them as part of Lumira license instead of a separate license which causer operational burden.

Alternatives Considered

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense, from a developer side, is way easier to pick up quickly while still holding the most functionality. Tableau is nice and has similar features to Qlik, but having to create each visualization/chart on its own sheet before building a dashboard is very much living 5 years ago. The ability to create master items in Qlik is parallel to this, but Qlik has the added feature of editing the charts/visualizations at the data level within the dashboard itself. I just finished a graduate program in Data Science, at the end of which we were all asked how we felt about Tableau. The overwhelming response was that, as you dig deeper into Tableau, you realize that it is not as easy and fun as it seems on the surface. With Qlik, I have had the opposite experience. The farther I dig into its full functionality, the more I find it to be useful at every level.

It has better visualization than the above-mentioned software. It is much easier to use SAP Lumira for quick data visualization without any hitches. We are confident in the product and it has never failed to deliver what we looked for. Our efficiency has increased 3 fold since we used the product and it's quick.

Enterprise wide implementation is a challenge with data security and trustedness. No easy installation can be done across the enterprise. no upgrade paths also available from SAP. They have so much of experience with desktop implementation, there it could be a controlled environment with a capital budget. These may be resolved in the upcoming releases

Return on Investment

Qlik Sense

  • Positive - we have been able to dramatically reduce customer churn rate with increased business visibility.
  • Positive - reduced reporting complexity by pushing/flagging employees for specific needs, thus reducing the need for best-guess reporting.
  • Positive - overall ROI has been more than measurable from a simple complexity reduction standpoint. No more creating custom reports on a monthly basis. Once a report or dashboard has been created, that report becomes a standard for us and can be easily modified for future use.
  • Positive - we've been able to reduce head-count for report generation.
Jason Webb | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Lumira Discovery

  • For my client, the cost of Tableau made Lumira attractive but unfortunately, due to limitations on Lumira... the client is thinking the Tableau investment may have been better for achieving business objectives.
  • Data size limitiations.
