Likelihood to Recommend

QlikView

QlikView is well suited for scenarios where a heavy data is involved or heterogeneous data is there which also requires some manipulation/ cleansing or application of business rules. Also, if the UI dashboard involves complicated formulas to be worked upon, QlikView is well suited.However, if there is a need to quickly create some dashboards where the developer has little knowledge on database/ scripting and also there is no data manipulation required for input data, other technologies other than QlikView can be considered.

Pros

  • ETL! QlikView is the simplest product that not only provides great visuals for UI but it also handles complex ETL.
  • Easy to implement. We have successfully installed QlikView server and desktop within one week with a fully functional dashboard published for end users.
  • DATA DISCOVERY! The green/white/grey is such a powerful tool. The first thing I do when II arrive onsite with a client is connect to their data and jump right into the data. The grey is the most valuable. I can see what is NOT relating to my selections. This is not possible, so far, in any other business discovery tool.
  • Set Analysis! Qlikview's set analysis allows me to calculate from the very basic to the super complex expressions. It does not take long to learn either.
  • QLIK COMMUNITY! The community consists of master users and Qlik employees and basic to new users. It is a huge resource for all users and allows you to get answers quickly then copy script and/or dashboards so no need to recreate the wheel.
  • ITS FREE forever and fully functional. You just cannot open licensed applications. What a great marketing tool. QlikSense will be free forever with the ability to share your applications! Just gets better.

Cons

  • Licensing model could be easier to understand. It is not bad, but takes a while for the clients to understand it. QlikSense will have a greatly improved licensing model from what I hear.
  • QlikSense is covering for all the requested Qlik11 improvements. I think the 2 products will compliment each other.

Once the data is loaded (which can range from simple to complex depending on the data set), it is relatively easy to create new charts/dashboards

In-Person Training

My team attended, but I cannot myself rate, but I think it was good as they've successfully launched a training program at our company themselves for users. It was 3-4 day training.

Training was as expected. The demo environments tend to be more fully featured that our own environment, but the training was clear and well delivered.

Implementation

QlikView7.4
Based on 13 answers
It has taken some time to get used to Qlikview and the backend team behind it. From understanding the new regulations on using less images and also pushing for more tools (such as full compatibility on desktop, laptop, ipad, phone). We were given training on this and have helpful tips to find analytics behind Qlikview but it is very much also a learn as you implement system.

QlikView is used by around 150 users across the university with half of them coming from the medical center. All other departments are using QlikView for one dashboard or another.

Alternatives Considered

I worked and played with several BI tools in my careers. Some were easier to learn than others. With QlikView, I instantly fell in love, and I'm still in love after 12 years of using the product. The most common feedback that I get from my users is: "This is the best thing I've ever seen!"

Data Integration

Based on 21 answers
For my company, Qlikview updates once a week. This allows us to grab information fairly quickly and consistently. We know when we can check our first analysis and when our second one will be. Our current team is working to have it be more real time analysis. It does export easily into excel spreadsheet files and it is capable of seeing multiple items at once through filter.
