- 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
- I would love to see the option of making the font smaller to fit more data on a sheet.
- Instagram is not as easy accessible like Facebook and YouTube.
- The reporting features are not as developed as in QlikView.
- It does not run on Linux unless some virtual windows environment is used.
- Easy to produce quality visualizations and reporting easily, but it still has the ability to perform more complex functions for more experienced users.
- Ability to aggregate information from multiple sources of data. It has the ability to perform most extract transform and load (ETL) functions without the need for another product. This information can be stored in a proprietary file format for fast loading and distribution to individual business analysts so everyone is working from the same source of truth.
- Has a very good community of support. Most questions can be answered through the product forums without the need to contact support.
- 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.
- Inbuilt ETL capability is exceptional so you don't need to have separate DWH.
- You can connect with any type of data source if you have a connector .
- Quick UI will help you to deliver fast.
- Self Service has the capability but the user should have basic SQL knowledge.
- Its UI is not good when compared with Tableau.
Next to this, we use Qlik Sense as a BI tool for business cases, budgeting, and forecasting. We have management dashboards, but also in-depth, drill down dashboards for specific departments.
- Ease of use. We do not have programmers or data analysts in house, but we have managed to create our own Qlik Sense environment with just a little bit of consultancy support.
- Frequent, very useful updates with always fresh and trendy stuff that can be used instantly.
- Speed, connecting with databases, SQL or external sources is a piece of cake. Loading & indexing data is incredibly fast.
- Pricy analyzer licenses.
- Lack of local support and consultancy companies nearby (Romania).
As we move forward in our journey, the goal is to have Qlik Sense be the preferred analysis tool in every meeting to be able to answer on-demand questions for planning, reviews, and general Q&A.
- CUSTOMIZATION and CLEANING of your data: Within a specific chart, as a Master Item throughout an app, or in the Data Load Editor, you have full power to clean your data and make it work for your need.
- Bringing together data from multiple sources: We have multiple servers that each house many databases along with secure file share folders. Qlik makes it so easy to connect to all of these sources and choose which data I want to bring in to the app within the snap of a finger!
- The online community and available help. When I started using Qlik, I did a ton of self-learning, as our company had only one or two developers that were also relatively new to the platform. Thanks to browsing the web and finding the online community of how-to questions and the help.qlik.com resources, I haven't found a use case within our company that hasn't already been solved or answered in the online forums.
- If you do not have NPrinting, exporting a sheet/reporting is not very neat. The PDFs are clunky and you cannot see any information that is cut off by a chart's space restrictions on the app sheet.
- While this is an improvement point already, the amount of unsupported extensions out there that do not function perfectly with each new upgrade is a bit "Wild West"y... Again, there is already something being done about this and it really is more of a user problem than a Qlik problem, but something we are somewhat irked by every once in a while.
- The ability to really customize a chart (in terms of formatting, color scheme, etc.) is just not quite there yet. And by "there" I mean perfect. Only limited color schemes out of the box and some of the formatting and options are not very complete. For instance, if I want to resize a chart or visualization, I am limited by the square-grid that is available. Granted, you can reduce or enlarge the size of the grid to help, but being able to only have rectangles makes real-estate an issue in many application dashboards.
- Historical Analysis.
- Tracking pools of products across an organization.
- Real-time data analysis.
- Printing a PDF.
- Simple report regurgitation (it has so much more power that would not be utilized if you were just using it for this).
- The drag and drop feature when creating reports is easy for end-users who do not have coding/programming knowledge.
- It is regularly updated with useful extensions that offer users more ways of presenting data for analysis.
- The Insight feature helps business users discover relationships between data, which otherwise have not been thought of.
- Most engineering folks use Excel to create pivot charts that show up to 3 nested dimensions. QlikSense seems to limit this to a maximum of 2 dimensions. It will be great if QlikSense can do all of what Excel can do with regards to charting capabilities and more.
- The objects for a reporting page seems to snap to the grid of the canvas. It would be useful for objects for a report to NOT snap to the grid, so that users can size or position the objects where they want them on the page.
- The color schemes that come with the charting function seem to be fixed. Those default color schemes available are atypical for the manufacturing industry, which normally uses a spectrum from Red to Green. Business users who do not have coding experience will have to depend on knowledgeable QlikSense developers to create the scheme for them. It would be good if QlikSense could include this color scheme as the default offering or provide a feature for user-defined color schemes that users can just pick off the color palette.
- Load large data sets quickly and easily.
- Allow users to filter and explore data quickly.
- Perform complex calculations.
- Visualize data in charts and graphs.
- More detailed control of the layout of KPIs, charts, and graphs (labels, legends, size of fonts, positioning of titles, etc).
- Better mapping functionality (it doesn't recognize many foreign places; even US towns/cities can be finicky) and more detailed control of mapping features, such as better adaptive sizing of labels as the user zooms in/out.
- Export to Excel of tables loses formatting and totals; export to PDF and image is poor.
- A single tool for ETL and visualizations.
- Responsive on any platform.
- Not as user-friendly as other BI platforms.
- Not as many visualizations as others.
- No real-time streaming dashboards.
- No out of the box report distribution/sharing available.
- Not easy to scale.
Qlik Sense is being used across the whole organization. Is used for such problems as:
Analyze of logistics workflows,
Prediction of supply disruptions.
- Visualizations allow you to quickly identify deviations from the norm.
- An associative analysis is the best method to identify and solve problems.
- Implementation of the tool in the style of "Set Analysis Wizard", f.e. http://tools.qlikblog.at/SetAnalysisWizard/QlikView-SetAnalysis_Wizard_and_Generator.aspx?sa=
- More charts for two-dimensional analysis (combi charts)
- More charts for analysis on the time line
Qlik Sense is also used for data validation activities both within systems and across systems.
We also use Qlik Sense to do a deep dive on different issues and use the information to inform food purchase, and program development.
- It is a wonderful program to combine information from many different systems.
- The visualizations are great and it helps to be able to show information in different ways
- It is easy to enter information into the system
- Better training in terms of how to manipulate data to input into charts
- It would be great to be able to print Qlik Sense screens - have dashboards as a handout without having to take copies or pictures.
- It is a great way to easily summarize information and present it in different ways. Great way to track and present metrics.
- Sometimes the way the data is presented is limited, for example tables.
- Qlik Scripting Engine provides methods of easily creating the views you need.
- Qlik Sense provides powerful charts.
- Qlik's associative engine makes it all very powerful to use.
- Getting the hang of the scripting could take some time.
- Set Analysis is very powerful but takes time getting used to.
- We were able to see which suppliers that had negative cost trend while the material and industry had a positive trend.
- It's very simple to deal with the long tail of suppliers with few products and low spend.
- We can easily take care of the suppliers that were still invoicing in USD and change them to CNY by a simple filter.
- I lack the functionality and customization of Tableau.
- Sometimes we need to use Excel to do some things that Qlik Sense is unable to do.
- I wish we could resize the graphs to fit all kinds of resolutions, graphs can look good on high res and then useless on low res monitors.
- Data load + data model.
- It's fast.
- Making selections in all controls and visualizations of reports.
- UI looks pretty old comparing to competitors.
- As data model is generally pretty good - it's still stuck in that same model and creating/modifying a bit larger data models is hard (for else than developers).
- Data model is closed for Qlik's use only. It should be open for other software as well.
- Developer Friendly.
- Single tool for ETL and visualization.
- Responsive to any platform.
- Not as user-friendly as other BI platforms.
- Not as many visualization as others.
- No real time streaming dashboards.
- no out of the box report distribution/sharing available.
- Not easy to scale.
- Ease of use.
- UX elements.
- Engine running the technology.
- How versions are released. You are forced to upgrade dev desktop versions whenever there is an update release. This cripples our development effort as our server might not be in a planned upgrade yet..therefore there is a risk of QVF not working.
- Team development of QVF. You can't source control the QVF to be worked on by others.
- Qlik's associative data engine (based on a proprietary in-memory database) makes the slicing and dicing of data very easy.
- Self-service aspect: it's easy for the end-users to create their own variations of existing sheets to better suit their needs.
- Easy to use: end-users learn how to use it in a short time.
- Inflexible licensing model. For example, if you purchase per-user enterprise licenses for your users (which are expensive), you cannot decrease the amount of them later.
- Doesn't work that well if data sets cannot fit into memory.
- Query language (especially 'set analysis' functions) is quite complex and unlike most programming languages.
- Some calculations are difficult to implement with Qlik.
- Many third party visualization (available in "Branch") are of low quality.
- Qlik Sense is geared toward self-service of analytical requirements and encourages users to discover and share their analytics with relevant persons.
- It's fast, has a neat, and unobtrusive interface and puts the focus on data.
- It's responsive and adapts seamlessly to all devices.
- Managing tasks and user access is easy and efficient using the management console.
- I particularly like the hub interface where users see apps assigned to them. Each app can be customized with an icon and categorized into Streams.
- Copying contents of a cell from a table or even a text object is impossible currently. Users would very much like to be able to use this basic functionality.
- Customizing table headers with text formatting and colors would be useful.
- More options in the background grid would be useful. For the moment each object occupies the same minimum size and there's no way to reduce one object without affecting the others
- Beautiful charts
- Ease of use
- Associative model
- Ability to resize the text generated in the charts should be added.
- Ability to create stories from different apps should be added. Sometimes I want to create stories that combine, for example, my sales apps and my operation apps.
- Associative data modeling - Data modeling is easy and has a lot of transformation capabilities. It's not traditional data modeling which is very helpful in traversing data across all the tables in the data model.
- In-memory engine - The data is already loaded in RAM, so it's fast.
- Strong developer tools for creating extensions and mashups.
- Fast analytics - Creating charts and dashboards is easy and fast.
- Strong self-service capabilities.
- Strong and active developer and administrator community. Lots of online help available.
- Out-of-the-box visualizations are of limited functionality like changing fonts, colors, applying themes.
- Sharing apps across developers is painful, everything needs to be controlled via QMC.
- Cost of license is a bit higher.
- AI capabilities - this has just been introduced, so it might improve in upcoming versions.
- Qlik is more IT or programmer-friendly for data load scripts.
- Qlik makes it easy to "lock down" data views, so that the occasional user doesn't get into trouble by applying filters, etc, that don't make sense.
- We're a bit behind the curve when it comes to educating our end users on using the Qlik app, so we still need to use pdf views to distribute. Qlik doesn't have a lot of options for this venue.
- Qlik requires more IT knowledge to get the data loaded appropriately than I would like.
- I find the interface more difficult to use than the competitors.
- The amazing UI - provides a great experience while trying to organize data using dashboards. Having been a regular user for over a year now, the kind of things you can learn just by yourself on the fly is simply amazing.
- Qlik Sense provides a quick and efficient way to scan data immediately and helps businesses make better decisions.
- The dashboards also provide great flexibility with a lot of options. Instead of having to pore over millions of data.
- Qlik provides way to discover or undercover hidden connections.
- The trial version of the product limits user space to a limited amount.
- Set analysis is strong but takes time to learn.
- NPrinting could use some enhancements to make it easier to admin (e.g., .xls spreadsheet for both input & output for all items).
Within the University of Miami healthcare system (UHealth), we wanted to see a high level view of our contracting performance. We are currently are utilizing multiple systems of truth. We utilize the Advisory Board's PIC (Payment Integrity Compass) system to model all of our hospital contracts. For professional services, we use Experian's modeling tool. We wanted to consolidate all of these different inputs of expected payment values into one view or report. There is a need to compare expected contractual values with actual over time. It helps our team get better at predicting the future if we continue to monitor and follow. Our hope was that actual values would materialize from our expected values.
In our own wheel house, we were able to identify easy things where a contract was loaded incorrectly. We also began to see how our processes and other team's processes were negatively affecting the bottom line. We were able to provide tips to other teams to help improve their processes.
- A beautiful design of both the front-end and the back-end. Specifically, the back-end looks a lot neater now than compared with Qlik View.
- Data visualization is made really easy by Qlik Sense.
- Easy to understand and to start creating models with it.
- Can be a little difficult to get used to where all of the features are located.
- Qlik Sense is lacking a lot of features that'd make it a much better tool for data analytics.
