Reviews (1-25 of 145)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Viewing and slicing SQL data sources
- Simple UI vs. Development in .NET or SAS reporting
- Business users with limited BI training
- 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.
- 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.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
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.
- 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.
