Qlik Analytics Platform is a great tool within our infrastructure. Connecting to all of our data sources, Qlik Analytics Platform simplifies data evaluation and sharing with scalable dashboards, interactive reports, embedded visuals, and more. Qlik Analytics Platform works well within our system via our extranet and internet sites. Subsequently, it creates a positive interaction and collaboration through data.
  • Multi system support including windows.
  • Open and documented APIs, including mash-up and extension APIs.
  • Toolkit to create a data model, build expressions.
  • Sometimes slow to respond with lots of data across different servers.
  • Requires some training to start.
  • Some visualizations need refining.
Qlik Analytics Platform is very well suited when you have a complex type of data set and you need some fast analysis on connecting the data and finding insights. It helps to find good relations. However, I do find it creating issues when I need to teach it to a new person. There is some training required which can create slow development.

Qlik Analytics Platform is the main reporting and data discovery tool for my company. It is used by the main Strategic and Control departments, for a variety of purposes from monitoring specific KPIs to deep analysis of complex data.
  • Complete tool that meets all the needs of use and analysis
  • Integrates seamlessly with any data source, from the oldest to the new.
  • It allows different levels of complexity of use, from simple consultation to the most advanced analyzes.
  • Certainly, it turns out that implementation and data modeling are sometimes complex.
  • There are still many graphic and representation limits that need complex customizations to be overcome.
Qlik is undoubtedly a perfect tool in a dynamic and constantly evolving situation, when you need detailed information and analysis. it is certainly less suitable in the case of static and standard reporting where it becomes heavy and not very receptive.
Official support is exhaustive and is completed by the community. Qlik is always very helpful and there is a lot of expertise that allows you to always have the necessary support.

As a local government organization, we use Qlik Analytics Platform to serve public-facing dashboards and data reports to residents and service users, alongside our internal Qlik Sense and Qlik View use. We use Qlik Analytics Platform to manage interactive "dashboard" components within public-facing websites, integrating user-driven data analysis with our corporate messages and offers of support to customers. While it's technically a whole-organization product, development and deployment are managed by one team, and most users of the end products are external customers.
  • It's flexible in allowing the development of fully-fledged analysis tools and dashboards, but also smaller "widgets" to embed in our websites to bring stories to life, and enables us to develop things once and then re-use them in different contexts.
  • The development platform and management console are both easy to use, and, with proper data development by our expert developers, can be used by relatively junior colleagues to produce great-looking and very useful products.
  • The way the platform handles a mix of data sources from different APIs and internal data stores is good.
  • We like the visualizations and from a corporate perspective find it easy to develop one-size-fits-all visualizations that present a wide range of data items well in a responsive way.
  • Some of our team feel that the licensing model was really too restrictive for us when we made the purchase and that given the same choice again, we might think twice about jumping in, but because we've already made that initial investment it's worth sticking with it. We don't think we get great value out of it because we only use it for a relatively small number of deployments. With that said, Qlik's licensing model is changing/has changed, so that might not be as much of an issue for new customers.
  • The Qlik Sense engine which powers the visualizations is in constant development, which is good, but in our current installation still lacks some capabilities -- for example, it only recently got the ability to change the thickness of lines in line graphs! The default options look good but more presentational flexibility obviously will help us tailor and align our public offerings to our corporate brand and presentation.
  • I'd really like them to look again at how they segment their product licenses to make the basic tools more appealing to low-complexity/low volume users like our local government setting.
Our best example is our "corporate performance dashboard," which is a website providing an overview of our organization's goals and strategic priorities, interwoven with Qlik elements allowing users to see at a glance how well we're performing, what we're measuring, and slice-and-dice between different service areas, levels of performance, or other themes, as well as seeing trends, comparators, and targets for individual performance measures. The platform allows a really nice interface for users and a nice interweaving of messages and data.

The way we understand the licensing, it's not suitable for handling sensitive data or producing reports for internal audiences only.
Customer support is provided through resellers, and finding the right reseller for your context can be a challenge. However our support from our last two resellers/partners has been largely very good. The online community is strong, though obviously doesn't replace having local technical experts working with the product and managing it.

We are a big organization with a lot of business domains and departments. Consequently, each domain and each department within have reporting requirements. They have their data mostly on local or shared Excel files. Every time they need a new report, they either carried out this from scratch or ask the DWH/BI team to create a new report/change the existing one. This brings a lot of overhead and inefficiency. In order to automate this process and remove lots of labor, our organization implemented Qlik Analytics Platform where any user can create and manage its reports. Therefore, the whole organization is happily using it now.
  • Reporting
  • Business intelligence
  • It still requires the IT team to setup the reporting page.
  • Authorization can be improved via roles.
Qlik is most appropriate where the business domain is actively accessing reports, and especially when it requires changes/modifications in it. With Qlik, this can be carried out without an IT team because anyone can create their own reports. Qlik is the most appropriated when the data is saved in an SQL server, automating the data retrieval and management even further.
Qlik is great for companies with lots of business domains and departments because it scales well, especially if data that is reported is saved in SQL and similar structures. Its ease of use and good UI enables business units to create and manage their own reports. That removes a great burden of creating and managing/modifying these pages from the IT team. Overall, it's a win-win for both IT and business units.
