Reviews (1-25 of 74)
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).
- 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
- 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.
- Very simple and useful views make Qlik View easy to use for end customers.
- Interactive views gives end users possibility to tweak the data as needed
- THe UI is so nice and modern!
- Sorry - I can't really find any disadvantages!
- Flexible, highly customizable, very stable BI platform
- More sophisticated and flexible base graphical components.
- Sales support from Qlik Sense practically disappeared. Nokia is simply not able to buy from Qlik their products. Requests and e-mails asking for resolution of this problem ASAP was simply ignored by Qlik since Tuna Yemisci became our contact person. We get the impression that Qlik is not a future-proof product, they are about to abandon its customers and disappear from the market.
- Qlik gives us a no-nonsense and easy to use interface that can spoon feed data to the majority of our users, while allowing for more detailed analytics by those that need it.
- Qlik’s connection to multiple data sources and ability to seamlessly blend them behind the scenes is simply magical.
- The network of community experts to answer your questions is above and beyond any of its competitors.
- Price is an issue, they seem to change their pricing model and offerings way to frequently, so you never know if you are getting priced appropriately.
- Graphics could use a modernization. They feel a bit 1980’s, not as crisp or sharp as Power BI, even though the tool itself is light-years ahead of Power BI.
- Spend more time improving the tool. Feels like Qlik is making a shift away from the tool and more towards data literacy in general, there is still so much more they could do with this product I would like to see more commitment to it.
each other, their built-in ETL tool is first in its class. They have some great
partner companies that can help with development and administration. The annual
Qlik conference is an excellent event and much more information than many
others I’ve been to. Probably not the best tool if you live out of spreadsheets
and have no data sources to direct connect with.
- Qlik Sense is very easy to use - which made it very easy to justify the benefits case and drive adoption as we released subsequent sprints.
- Qlik Sense addressed the issues we faced to develop a single solution that would work for the office-based community and remote sales force using QlikView.
- Qlik provided extensive support to help us decide the roadmap for Qlik products in the context of our IT landscape.
- Qlik integration with SAP was a real bonus.
- Qlik's associative engine is both a strength and a weakness. For a single solution like the one I describe here, it makes the development process quick without compromising performance. However, when the larger data and analytics strategy was considered for the group (which for such a large company involves handling vast quantities of consumer and operational data) other solutions proved to offer better value for our requirements.
- User friendly interface that is simple (even for first times users) to use/navigate
- Powerful filtering tool which enables the user to extract information they need effectively on a timely basis
- Really useful graphical representation of information which can be used as direct input into reporting
- Can be slow/clunky to load at times (might be due to the sheer amount of data)
- For some reason bookmarking does not seem to work/save my filtered view (might be due to our internal system)
- Takes data from multiple sources (including Excel) to help bring together disparate data sets.
- Simple to use charts and graphics that allow quick insight.
- Easy to use interface to allow users to develop reports quickly to meet stakeholder needs.
- Still requires some technical knowledge that often meant me having to support.
- Difficult to do more complex charts and visualizations.
- Use of maps (free).
- Scalabilty (different devices).
- Self service.
- Living community.
- Pixel-perfect dashboarding. Due to the scalability/ability to use on different devices, the place to put charts and tables on a pixel-perfect way is limited.
- Look & feel is different from QlikView. I have to use it. I think if you start with Sense it is no problem, but when you are used to QlikView it could be a big step.
- Visualization. Easy to understand visualization controls enabling non-technical users to create their own dashboards with minimal ticket request.
- Built-in Associative model. It was very easy for IT to create a base model for the end users to consume.
- Internal data store. Although being proprietary, this attribute saved the organization from license cost
- Extensibility. Very easy for us to branch out any base data model or reports that we've built in the past to enable us to continuously align to business needs.
- The internal workload balance is good, but it would be nice for us to be able to control how server loads can be distributed across server nodes.
It is less appropriate if the organization already has a dedicated BI group. Should that be the case, you'd better go for Qlik View.
- QlikSense has strong self-service analytics capabilities when compared to competitors. With Qlik Insights, business users can easily create any additional analysis without development team involvement.
- QlikSense easily pushes the new data to charts or tables without any interruption to the webpage. No need to refresh the webpage to see new data after reload.
- The chart objects auto reset based on browser resolution or OS. No need for additional development for mobile dashboards.
- Real-time data refresh without limitations.
- Source control inside the product.
- Data manipulation.
- The speed at which it can organize and manipulate millions of rows of data.
- Ease of connecting data from different sources.
- Qlik needs to provide better training, it cannot be only examples of simple financial models shown in the advanced class.
- Ongoing support.
- More visual customization options.
