Qlik Sense is being used across the organisation from HR, finance, retail functions to custody and funds services. Dashboards are available not just to internal users but external clients also. Qlik Sense allows us to provide our internal operations teams and external clients with valuable insights in a self-service manner.
  • Users can self-service their visualisation needs within Qlik Sense with ease. No longer are centralized analytics teams the bottleneck on new dashboards/reports.
  • Qlik Sense makes stitching of data together from different sources an absolute breeze. Qlik Sense can be used as a Data Warehouse without any great difficulty. It can become your organisation's single source of truth.
  • Qlik Sense APIs are extremely robust. We have been able to extend the functionality available in the UI and customize the back end to our specific needs. There are very few limits with powerful APIs at your fingertips.
  • Data Lineage is difficult to determine and relies on trailing logs using 3rd-party scripts or pushing from a vendor.
  • Section access (entitlements) is quite efficient, but quite often our products want a finer level of control .e.g applying across multiple different fields, enabling/disabling fields for certain users.
  • I would like to see changes to the Qlik Sense load script to allow better parameterisation of functions, try/catch blocks and other behavior that comes as standard with other languages. User-defined functions should be passed to the QMC for use in all reloads, instead of loading into every script using library files.
  • I would like to see an emphasis on real-time dashboarding capabilities. BDI does not solve all real-time dashboard needs. Provide ability to upsert using partial reload feature etc. We ultimately want to treat in-memory dashboards like a relational database.
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.

Qlik Sense is being used by our entire organization, at most all levels of the organization. It allows us to generate business insights not attainable through our ERP or CRM systems. It has allowed us to more proactively manage our sales teams and create visibility around activity we couldn't get previously.
  • Data Visualizations
  • Integrating data from multiple data sources
  • Data analysis
  • Requires external support for implementation
  • Much more flexible with in-house talent
Qlik Sense is most effective when used with a data strategy. Without a deep understanding of what you want to look for and manage from an analytics standpoint, it use-case is limited. However, if you know what you want to look for and have an idea of how best to read and interpret data, Qlik Sense is very effective. It's an extremely flexible platform, more so for our organization since we have an internal product champion who can design, develop and deploy dashboards.

Qlik Sense is used across the organisation. It is used to publish a triple bottom line (profit, planet, people) with metrics for each like CO2 emissions, guest satisfaction and status of different sustainable projects. In addition it is used to analyse social media via connector (Facebook and YouTube) and website data (our blog). In addition, the guest department will get a daily updated forecast on guest numbers.
  • 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.
The more people need access to data and the more they need to navigate within the data (drill-down etc.), the more suitable. As it runs on any environment other than Linux, it is useful in mixed systems with MACs or windows. Not really on a Linux platform (neither server nor client). If there is only one data analyst, QlikView is better as Qlik Sense really distributes the data out there for people to do their own analysis (filtering, sorting etc.).

It is being used as a primary business intelligence solution used by several departments and eventually the entire organization. It provides insight and at-a-glance information to make business decisions backed by data.
  • 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.
Great for aggregating data and producing really good visualizations. Data can be supplied to analysts to build their own analytics and have confidence they are using the same underlying data. It may be less appropriate if there is a lot of complex business logic to be integrated into the application. The Qlik View product is probably more suited to that since it behaves more like a developers tool.

We are using QlikSense across the whole organization. Whenever we do upgrades and new installations, business users may face issues and we resolve them.
  • User friendly
  • Self service analytics
  • Easy integration to any source system
  • Easy storytelling
  • Advances analytics
  • Graphs and charts

It's more appropriate for custom properties and security rules and less appropriate when designing dashboards.

Primarily as a UI for Space Management data. We provide category management services to CPG and retailer customers who analyze shelf space. Cubic, Capacity, Linear, Square, Facings, Points of Distribution, $ Share, Unit Share, Fair Share Index. We provide scorecards that compare previous to current or planned and calculate TTLs, DIFF, and % Change. We leverage common visualizations, KPI, charts, etc.
  • Processing speed.
  • Ease of use.
  • Seamless Integration SQL.
  • Limited appearance options.
  • Poor ability to filters and other objects on the page.
  • No bound box features for tables or other charts.
  • Limited QMC functionality (e.g. Export).
  • Poor viewing capability when viewing many applications for a stream.
  • Poor support for branch plugins.
Well suited for the following:
  • Viewing and slicing SQL data sources
  • Simple UI vs. Development in .NET or SAS reporting
  • Business users with limited BI training
  • Sharing/Collaboration

Currently Qlikview is widely used in Faysal Bank. However we are in the process of migrating it to Qlik Sense. We are extensively using Qlik Sense within Finance Department. We have provided access along with training to other department users. So that they will create/design their own analytics.
  • Qlik associative engine.
  • Augmented intelligence.
  • Self-service BI.
  • Enhancement through extensions.
  • More functionality on Pivot Table.
  • More charts and graphs.
  • Dynamically increase in font while using the dashboard on big screen/projector.
I assumed Qlik Sense was the best self-service BI tool. Users can easily use Qlik with minimum training. However there is a lot of room for improvement on the data modelling side.

Qlik Sense is being used in the number departments, however, it is a strategic BI/Analytical tool in our organization. It supports our reporting and analytical needs, and allows for faster data delivery and the more efficient use of data.
  • Great visualizations
  • Drilling down and finding correlations
  • Questions that were not asked
  • Working with large data sets might be slow.
  • QVD "chaining" is not straightforward.
  • Better support on the on-demand apps generation.
Qlik Sense is well suited for trend analysis, heat maps, and high-level comparisons. It does not work well with direct database queries and on-demand app generations.

Qlik Sense is used across the whole organization. The major problem relates to streams. We have many departments and the number of streams increases as well.
  • Indexing data
  • Time of reload
  • Quick search
  • Memory size (RAM)
  • Few components (vs QlikView)
Qlik Sense is well suited when we need to show a story, based on a specific set of data. It is very well suited when we have a big set of data.

Qlik Sense is used at Visy enterprise-wide. It is used in measuring manufacturing, sales and finance KPIs. Some examples are:
Manufacturing - Measure customer claims, run rate
Sales - Used for sales and margin reporting at SKU level
Procurement/Finance - Tracking spending
  • Data modelling is very good. One doesn’t need to explicitly define the joins between different data sets, as Qlik Sense associative model takes care of it.
  • Highly customisable. Using the variable editor allows a user to define simple to complex formulas.
  • Filters do not need to be defined separately. All the dimensions of the data set can be used as filters without any extra steps.
  • Customisation of colors on charts and tables without coding.
  • Include Sparkline charts within tables.
  • Add discussion or commentary feature for improved collaboration.
  • Include what-if scenarios and predictive analytics out of box.
  • Allow planning and forecasting activities where users can enter data.
Qlik Sense is highly customisable application and can be used for a majority of use cases for data analysis, rich visualisation. It doesn’t do planning activities very well. Not the best tool for what-if scenarios.

Qlik Sense is used across the whole organisation for management reporting, also for operational reporting by departments, and is very effective for data exploration. It allows consolidation of data from disparate legacy systems. Excellent performance with large data sets.
  • Allows rapid, intuitive development of dashboards and reports.
  • Has a rich palette of presentation scenarios.
  • Scripting language allows for precise customisation to meet end-user requirements.
  • Integral documentation could be improved.
  • Embedded user help could be better.
  • Stories based on current query data set with the ability to interact would help.
Qlik Sense is excellent for data exploration. List boxes in conjunction with a chart allow for drill down on (for example) outliers in the graph to underlying data in the list boxes. Last time I looked extensions are still not permitted in Qlik Sense Cloud.

Mainly dashboards but we are moving towards predictive analytics.
  • Dashboard creation is easy.
  • Lots of built in KPIs and visualizations.
  • Aggregation of data from various sources.
  • Documentation is lacking especially around more advanced concepts like parameter usage and set operations.
  • The KPI/Visualizations import feature should tell you about compatibility issues at import.
Management dashboards and metrics. Analysis of data through filtering, finding the hidden patterns in why/how the results came to be.

We are using Qlik Sense at an Enterprise level. We have created persona-based Dashboards for Sales, Finance, Delivery, Marketing, HR functions. We are showing KPIs as per persona. Before Qlik, users went to different functions and asked for data and created their own Excel sheets based on reports after massaging the data. Now, we have integrated these functions and data is available for all. This helps users not to go to every department to get their data. Manual efforts are removed and we are able to automate the system.
  • 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.
For an enterprise application, It is well suited as your whole data lies in enterprise DWH and then you can chip your Qlik Sense to deliver reports quickly.

First of all, we use Qlik Sense to visualize real time information about our manufacturing process from our ERP system. We have several real time monitors on our production floor used by floor managers and team leaders to steer teams. Data driven decision making.

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).
In any place or department where any kind of database or system is used, Qlik Sense can be well suited.It's as simple as that. We started by linking some Excel files to Qlik Sense and created dashboards. Generally speaking, I would say that data integrity is important and data cleansing could be necessary, but this is something regardless of Qlik or any other BI tool.

Qlik Sense Does Make Sense

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Qlik Sense is used by the Manufacturing Operations department for extracting data from various data sources for analysis. While we are still in the infant stage of using and exploring possibilities with this solution, we've already achieved significant productivity gains for the engineering teams, turning regular manual and cross oceanic data extraction processes into scheduled automatic data extraction.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense is very well suited where source data structures do not change over time. For example, the data tables in a database. When the data format/structures changes from time to time, for example, an engineer's Excel spreadsheet, it will be challenging to code an adaptive Qlik Sense app to accommodate the dynamic changes.

We use it across the organization. Primarily we help member health centers better understand the care they are providing to patients and how much their patients use other health care services. We also use it to aggregate data and compare health centers in our region for quality improvement and for strategic planning purposes.
  • 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.
It's excellent for exploring large data sets with many dimensions because of its associative model. It's excellent for drilling down from a high level, such as from a health system to a specific clinic, then to a single doctor, and then to a single patient. It's also good for analyzing data over time.

Qlik Sense is being used across the whole organization. Is used for such problems as:

Analyze of logistics workflows,

Deviations from the planned process,
Tracking work progress in projects,
KPI Management dashboard,
Trends in inventory changes and
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)

Qlik Sense is currently used across the organization. It is used primarily for the tracking of organizational metrics. It has been really beneficial to link data from different systems to look at our business in a different way. Information from three systems (inventory system, financial system and volunteer management system) is analyzed within Qlik Sense. We have put together dashboards for our board and for staff.

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 Sense is being used as a data visualization tool across departments internally as well as a solution to view the analytical results for our existing and potential clients. Qlik Sense creates a remarkable impact when we present our analytical findings to the clients in terms of interactive self-serve dashboards.
  • Data compression
  • Complete control with scripts

Qlik Sense is being used across multiple departments like Sales, Supply Chain, and Finance. Qlik Sense provides us a better view of what we are doing than our ERP shows us. It's also much faster than tools like Excel.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense is powerful for tools where there are many data points available like supply chain or sales. We use it for all processes in the supply chain like incoming goods and outbound goods on an operational level and strategic level.

We use Qlik Sense in the purchasing department to see trends and identify outliers. It's very quick to find out which suppliers or products that need to update costs. We have created interactive dashboards where it's simple to filter to your individual needs either by suppliers, product, currency, country or buying region.
  • 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.
I like to use Qlik Sense to view large amounts of data, it's much more useful than Excel that would choke on that amount of data. It's very fast and easy to set up some parameters, filters, and charts. You can quickly see where you want to focus and build dashboards that make your life much easier next time.

It's used in many departments and also in top management and Finance and HR departments. The biggest problem it solves is connecting many data sources as one data model for reporting use.
  • 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.
It's fast. So it suites particularly well for pretty big data models and reports, where other products might get stuck.

We use Qlik to identify cost savings processes within our product range to create value for our clients.
  • 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.
We used it to identify value propositions within our company product to pass the value to our clients. We create much value from this use case. We find business users typically are not willing to try the use. It could be a lack of understanding of the discipline of BI. May not be a shortfall of the product.
