We have been able to drive up adoption with "quick win" dashboards that take the manual effort of creating Excel files at each month-end and allowing Qlik to be the source of historical information. We have dashboards that deal with our Branch outreach, Call Center, general Membership information, Robotic Process Automation results, and plenty more. In all, we have about 100 apps in production ranging from very small to very large size. 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.,10,Increased productivity of employees who use Qlik (ability to track the daily progress of goals instead of "hoping" that things work out by month-end). Reduce "wasted" time by manually-created reports at month-end. Allowing for on-the-fly analysis in meetings and in spots where the old protocol was to put in a Service Request and wait for days while a report is sent back.,We have multiple sources of data from different systems along with files on a shared folder across the organization. Through multiple script sections, developers have the power to write multiple LOAD statements to bring in data from many sources. There is also the ability to set up any number of connections to the data sources so that you can insert a simple connection line to bring together data from everywhere. This is utilized by our organization to help track goals for our retail teams, and we use approximately 4 or 5 different data sources in one app to do this, updated on a daily basis.,While we have not yet fully deployed a mobile analytics platform due to several security factors within our own organization, we are excited about the possibility of getting Qlik Sense out to our C-Suite team's mobile devices. The conversational analytics piece is still quite new, and we don't have very many app developers. The developers on our team are well-versed in insights and how to create effective dashboards, so this feature is not something that we necessarily need at this time.,This would be a similar response to my previous response, but I will expand a bit upon that here. I do find that the machine learning portion of helping to drive my personal insights to be helpful. For instance, when we are trying to steer away from using a certain field as a dimension, it is easy to constantly reject the "insight" and push the cognitive engine to understand that we never want that field as a dimension.,Tableau Desktop,Tableau DesktopQlik's associative engine is the key differentiatorAll employees throughout our organization use Qlik Sense as the primary tool to analyze and improve the performance of our online advertising products and to follow company KPIs. It has certainly changed the way we can react to things and made the company more data-driven.,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.,8,Makes organization more data-driven. Promotes self-service and general interest in data. Frees resources by removing need for generating ad-hoc reports manually.,We have centralized most of our data into a central data warehouse (based on Amazon Redshift) so the integration to Qlik Sense was very easy. That being said, it's been sometimes useful that Qlik allows us to easily combine data from multiple data sources (sometimes even Excel sheets or the like).,As a small organization, we have decided to use Qlik Sense with one simple centrally managed instance, and that approach has proven to be useful. We have also embedded some screens for dedicated TV screens at the office but it required a bit of development time to make it work smoothly. We are interested in some more advanced use cases but typically they would require much more effort from the engineering side.,As an engineering organization, we know pretty well how we want to process to data, so we have not used these automated wizards or suggestions that much. I can, however, see how they can make the user experience better for average users.,Tableau Server,Apache Spark, Amazon RedshiftQuite easily the best solution to our BI needsWe use Qlik Sense across all four worldwide locations in our organization. Our objective was to deliver a self-service business analytics solution that would be robust, flexible in connecting with a wide range of source systems, responsive across desktops, tablets, and phones and easy to manage from any location. We are happy with the outcome and are looking to scale this to all major functions and to act as a single source of consumption of all data and analytics.,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,10,Good impact Engages users Fast and robust,Yes. We have benefited from this.,Users are happy with Qlik Sense and have found that their analytical requirements have been met and expect to spend more time of analysis rather than obtaining information.,Useful.Qlik SenseQlik Sense is used by our organization at an enterprise level. We are driving digital literacy throughout the organization and want to automate most of the processes. For example, when it comes to creating reports, we used to use Excel and would spend lots of time on it and similar products every month. To overcome this, we are using tools like Qlik Sense to automate the process of creating reports. We are also using Qlik Sense features like in-memory capability, associative data modeling, and others to create new dashboards and reports.,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.,9,It has saved us a lot of resource time!,We have definitely benefited from this capability. We use lots of different data sources and data is not as streamlined as it should be. So, initial development in creating data models was a bit hectic but with Qlik Sense's strong data transformation capabilities and usage of various Qlike Sense functions, the process was very helpful and easy. Once the data model is created it is simply a matter of scheduling it and using it again and again for various other reports.,Qlik Sense has definitely helped our organization in all the above-mentioned scenarios. Guided analytics is one of the major ways in which Qlik Sense is being used in our organization as well as self-service reports being created to get the best results for their purpose. Most of the users access the Qlik Sense app on mobile and tablet devices to get the reports on the go which has helped in better productivity and offers a time-saving approach. The search function in Qlik Sense is awesome to use because of its associative data modeling and data filtering across the app. As of now, we don't use the insights advisor since it does not provide the expected or desired results.,Qlik Sense does use cognitive and machine learning, but I would say they are still in nascent stages. We are still working on how to use these technologies for better yields.,Microsoft Power BI and Tableau Online,Microsoft Office 2016, Microsoft Power BI, Tableau Online, Alteryx AnalyticsQlik Sense as a system-wide solutionThe intent is to use Qlik Sense across the whole organization. Currently, it has been launched within a few departments. We provide dashboards to make outcomes and processed data available to executives and managers in an effort to make one source of "truth". Historically, each department was responsible for pulling their own data and we would have multiple "answers" to the same question. In the future, we're hoping to provide drill-down levels with the data and to educate the user base to take advantage of it.,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.,7,We are in the "building" phase right now, so I can't say we've had an ROI.,Qlik has enabled us to load a great deal of data from our EMR, with little/no data lag. As for accuracy, like other reporting systems, the data is only accurate if the people setting it up work hard to validate it. I think we may have learned the hard way that you can't let IT developers work in a vacuum - they need to work with the subject matter experts.,I can't speak to these items.,I feel Qlik's data preparation features have enabled our developers to get a usable data set to the folks that create the dashboards.,Tableau Desktop,Tableau Desktop, Microsoft 365 BusinessQlik Sense is one of the best our there for storytelling and visualationWe are using Qlik in a lot of different ways. All the way from monitoring our facilities' fire code standards to how our hospital contracts are performing. The facilities team wants to know how often fire hydrants are serviced to maintain code, so they map out locations and needs of servicing as one simple task. On the hospital and healthcare contracting side it becomes a lot more complicated. We look at how our negotiated contracts with our major payors are performing using multiple sources of data. Qlik handles different sources of data very well.,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).,10,We have been able to identify gaps in our expected payments that has allowed us to recover over $10 million this year alone.,The healthplans we work with sometimes send different data sources. Qlik allows us to consume Excel, SQL, flat files, etc.,We have used Qlik Sense to model the EPIC database we use for our health system.,Sometimes it helps and sometimes it makes incorrect assumptions that could be correct.,Microsoft Power BI and Tableau Desktop,Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Power BISmall and simple implementation from the persepective of a QlikView fan.Qlik Sense is mainly used in my department where we use it to analyse and report on complex datasets. For example, where data from multiple line of business systems needs to be stitched together to see the full story. As a specific example, we have used QS to generate the Groups Gender Pay Gap reporting requirements.,Visualize complex relationships Provide intuitive UX Allow dynamic querying of data,Certain chart types that QlikView users would be familiar with are not (yet) available in QS. Changing the size of charts to any size. Allowing charts to be displayed behind other charts.,8,None, unfortunately.,My department has made use of this functionality (and we also use QlikView too). However, there is little appetite in the wider organization for this style of modeling and analysis at the moment.,QS is deployed within a Citrix environment to a limited number of users, who self serve. We do not currently embed or use mobile devices.,We have seen little direct impact from these technologies on our small and limited deployment.,QlikView,QlikViewQlik sense: An innovative BI analytics toolQlik sense, at the moment, is only being used by our department, as we are busy creating new models from old existing QlikView models. Afterwards, it will be used by various departments in the organization to analyze and compare data.,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.,9,Making geographical analytics available to us. Enabling the design of better dashboards.,Yes, we have benefited from this. We've had to pull data from various excel files, as well as a couple of databases, into one model for use. Qlik sense made this an easy task, and saved us a lot of time.,N/A. We have not used Qlik Sense a lot yet.,Yes, it has. Qlik sense has helped a lot in creating different ways to display and visualize some of my data.,QlikView,QlikViewIt make Qlik SenseIt is being used to analyze our sales data, drill down into the categories that we focus on, and look at trending data and vs budget. It is being used across the company to see high-level sales and also to look into department-specific KPIs and ad-hoc data analysis. Reports are consumed across the company and specific users are able to build their own chart with the potential to have them create their own reports in the future.,Scripting language Easy to create visualizations Drag and drop UI Presentation is simple and clean,A little buggy. Set analysis can take some time to get your head around.,8,Measuring our sales vs budget and forecast by category gives great insight into our trading meetings. Automating report generation gives time back to users. Having data ready when users need it is great versus having to wait for people to produce (static) reports.,We have a combination of ERP data, where our sales data lives, Google Analytics so we can see how well our website is converting sales, and then market share data to see insights on the wider market, all available for users to paint a picture of how well we are doing as a business.,We are not making use of much of the self-service aspects of Qlik Sense yet as users need some training first to build their confidence in this. Data also need to be prepared so users aren't overwhelmed. There are some analysts who are using Qlik Sense to create their own analysis, which helps them do things quicker although does require some support for difficult questions.,I have used the insights adviser a few times to see if it generates any charts/information that is of interest but I have found it very hit and miss. Some improvements have been made in the latest version so I may look at this again as they make it more "conversational.",QlikView and Tableau Desktop,QlikViewEasy for everyoneWe use Qlik Sense at the IT department for gathering and show data from different sources in an interactive view. We plan to spread the use of Qlik Sense to more departments and integrate it with other systems as well. The reason we have not maximized the use of Qlik Sense is only organizational - the lack of time!,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!,10,We invent user accounts, licenses and more quickly - saves time and money,We currently don't combine data but we plan to,Using Qlik Sense to publish data from pur internal systems public will give our citizens a possibility to follow government work in an understandable way,We do not use this - yet,Microsoft Power BINokia - abandonned customerWe extensively used Qlik Sense to deliver analytics and technical consulting services to mobile operators across Europe and Asia. We are not a reseller of Qlik Sense but we promoted Qlik Sense to an operator by showing its flexibility. Unfortunately due to close to zero support from Qlik Sense we are seriously considering other BI solutions.,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.,1,It allowed us to automate data analysis, it allowed us to accelerate time to market with certain service components,Data modeling is a critical factor in building any Qlik Sense application. We were extremly satisfied in the past with the quality of Data Modeling trainings delivered by Qlik Poland,No impact yet,Very interesting area we wanted to explore it deeper however due to extremely bad support from Qlik this seems to be a dead end for Nokia,,Tableau Desktop, Microsoft Power BI, Arcadia DataReview of Qlik SenseIt's used by just myself but hopefully more members of my team and others in the near future.,Fast associative processing Visualize data Handles large data sets,Scripting language is very technical for some users. Very limited customization of dashboard layouts.,8,N/a,Being able to customize the data load and pulling from multiple data sources is technical but very powerful in Qlik Sense. It handles many different sources and large volumes of data easily as long as you are quite adept at data wrangling concepts.,I haven't used these featues.,The suggested insights have been very disappointing for me thus far. They rarely recommend charts and analysis that make much sense.,QlikView and Tableau Desktop,Microsoft SQL Server, QlikViewMy SENSEtional ExperienceOur company began its experience with Qlik 6 years ago. At the beginning we used View and for two years we have integrated Sense and Nprinting. The IT (business intelligence) team and the MS (advanced analytics) team coordinate the infrastructure and manage the releases, which reach every branch of the company.,Adaptability Integration Ease of Use,Greater possibility of native customization Fewer links to scripting and more wizards Certified and officially maintained extensions,8,Monitoring of KPIs for management and declination on individual departments Integration of different company worlds and sharing of common information Possibility of analysis on complex and advanced insights,To date we are still in an initial state and we have not yet taken advantage of all the power and integration of Qlik Sense.,As I said before we have not yet arrived at such advanced use. Certainly the possibility of use by different profiles with different technical skills is the reason we decided to continue with the Qlik suite.,I would say that we see this as an even more advanced step.,Tableau Server, MicroStrategy Analytics and Microsoft Power BI,KNIME Analytics Platform, IBM InfoSphere DataStage, Talend Open StudioSelf service BI with QlikSenseQlik is designated as the enterprise dashboarding and mobile BI tool.,Data relationships Search In memory processing Components,Scripting Multidimensional data processing Graphics,7,Sped up our self service BI project Easy user ramp up Nice mobile application and UI,Qlik was designated as our BI self-service tool. Qlik’s ease of data preparation and quick ramp-up allowed our program to ramp quickly. The UI consistency between desktop and mobile is also a great benefit.,Self-service BI and mobile dashboarding are two use cases we had designated for Qlik. It fulfilled the capability with ease.,We did not use Qlik extensively in the predictive uses cases. However, the built-in data prep capability is clearly a plus to extend it into the predictive areas if called for.,,Tableau Desktop, SAP Analytics Cloud, Microsoft 365 BusinessSense it!We are about to take Qlik Sense into use step by step. We have now two implementation projects going on and we will move from QlikView to Qlik Sense in a few years. We will use Sense across the whole organization. I don't see any problems with that.,Self-service reporting. Much easier to use than QlikView.,Can't comment yet. Lack of experience...,9,Great! We will save money from less work in the development of reports since Sense is much faster than QlikView. Self-service reporting is much easier!,Yes, we have. We have quite a lot of data and complex calculations and Qlik is doing fine with them. It's faster than eg SQL Server.,It's good that we can make ready built dashboards and reports, but at the same time it is easy for the user to do self-service reporting.,Haven't done that yet.,,QlikViewI like QlikQlik Sense is our company’s primary BI tool for 3 business units, currently expanding to all BU’s,Processes large datasets. Easy to deliver/deploy. Great user experience.,Needs better white labeling. More descriptive error messages. Better resource sharing.,10,Very scalable. Good license model. Great installation process.,We have been able to build a few primary data models and then make most design work based on those.,Not applicable.,We have not utilized this.,,Oracle Data WarehouseQlik was the right decision, and we are reaping the rewards it offers.We use Qlik Sense to evaluate retail product performance over time and against other similar products both within and external to our business. We extract the data from our ERP system with a direct connection and prefer to use it over other tools because it allows us to blend in data from other sources like Medallia.,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.,10,Product sales reporting is far more accurate now that we use direct data and not a spreadsheet intermediary. I had to add 2 headcount to keep development and admin working, but could easily add 10 more people as there is enough demand to do so. We can now ties our sales directly to our customer sat, so can see sales performance by customer happiness very easily.,The back office ETL of Qlik has got us connected to 3 different ERP systems, a dozen different web-based databases and connected directly to Salesforce with a SOAP API. We can generate a report that takes information for any one or all of the above and bundles it together seamlessly. It is a very power engine, and the speed is unmatched.,Now Qlik is getting too broad, they have a great viz tool and a very powerful engine, but feels like they are trying to cover too much ground with all their different offerings. As far as self-service, you can only get to 80/20, there is always a need for guided or assisted analytics, and I think Qlik oversells themselves in this area.,I see very little machine learning out of the box with Qlik. You have to reach out and add a third-party software at fairly great expense to do any real AI or machine learning. It feels all HUMINT or Human Intelligence driven, even the data prep must be done by a human. If you use the visual tools to load data, it takes forever, the only way to move forward is to use the script editors and code it by hand.,Tableau Desktop, Microsoft Power BI and Business Objects SRC,Tableau Server, Tableau Desktop, Tableau Online, Microsoft Power BI, Business Objects SRCQlik Sense ReviewQlik Sense is used across the broader WBA company. I was involved in the implementation and subsequent use in our New York office. The use case was to consolidate information from our third party distributor and internal finance solution (SAP) to enable a balanced scorecard for the management team and more detailed analysis for finance, supply and commercial functions. The first phase of the project utilised QlikView. Subsequent phases migrated to Qlik Sense.,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.,8,The solution step changed the business units' ability to make informed decisions. The business case easily justified the initial investment. Once the first phase of the project had delivered the benefits from the business case and proven the use of an agile approach there was incredibly strong support from the local management team to fund the next phases - incorporating additional data sources and deploying to different user communities Incorporating new data sources (eg. third party sales when we acquired a new business) was relatively inexpensive and delivered significant savings,The Qlik solution replaced a spider's web of Excel spreadsheets that had been developed by the user community but was unable to scale as the business grew. An objective of the project was to automate interfaces with 3rd party distributor, our SAP solution and customers to ensure information was both accurate and available in a timely fashion. The project went to great lengths to establish a collaborative approach between the users and IT teams. In this model, the IT teams facilitated the ingestion and consolidation of new data sources in partnership with the locally based key users.,The project I described did not utilise the more advanced features of QlikSense although they did influence the choice of Qlik. After delivering the core capability, subsequent phases are planned to deploy to mobile.,Not relevant to the project I describeMake sense of what you have with a 'Qlik'Qlik Sense is being used across the whole of my organization for various purposes, which includes assisting management in extracting BI from raw data we have on certain products and/or to help drive strategy based on such information, or monitoring the health of our risk portfolio and insuring data integrity. For me it presents data in a meaningful and easy to understand manner through an extremely user-friendly interface.,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),10,It enabled us to monitor particular metrics of a product which in turn helped identify an error in the system loading the incorrect revenues. We have been able to identify more profitable products as a result of the tool which helped use form more targeted sales conversations.,We have a lot of information/data in our organization which we previously relied on ad-hoc reporting from various tools without a unified platform. Since Qlik products were adopted, we have a consistent BI platform adopted across many businesses which provides for timely information that is user-friendly and ensures everyone is on the same page.,We continue to face various regulatory requirements and as such are required to provide timely reporting to the regulators. The Qlik Sense platform enables us to dump raw information which can be processed very quickly in a meaningful manner/reporting which saved a lot of time/effort which was required in previous process in achieving the same.,Qlik Sense is extremely helpful in quickly visualising information in an easy to digest manner which is unprecedented in the organisation and as such this has enabled us to identify new insights into our products which were previously not accessible. This has helped formulate our strategy in focusing on more profitable activities/products and eliminate the less value adding ones.,Microsoft BIA very effective tool if aimed at the right usersQliksense is being used by non-technical or people with limited technical backgrounds within our organization to produce data and analysis to enable performance management of our supply chain. The main reason we adopted Qlik is that it allowed us to take data from several of our legacy systems, Qliksense allows non-technical staff to produce data visualization with limited support from technical staff.,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.,4,I don't have the ROI figures but I know it has lead to more responsive decision making and greater visibility of data. It is quite expensive so we have not rolled it out any further than supply chain who are the most data-hungry customers.,Very much so, we have at least four legacy systems as well as our main production system which is one of the key reasons we chose Qlik in the first place. It has been fairly simple for our ICT department to create a data warehouse that enables end users to fairly easily join up all this data. Another key bonus is being able to add in spreadsheet data.,We have not really looked at these user models and, for the most part, the reports were shared between the supply chain analyst team members. Much of the data was exported to Excel or printed but, in some cases, it was published on screen in operational areas to give visibility of current performance.,I am not aware of this functionality or if we have utilized it at all.,QlikView and Microsoft Power BI,SAP Crystal, Epicor ERP, Microsoft SQL Server, IFS ApplicationsQlik Sense ReviewWe are using QlikView nowadays in almost all our departments (Sales, Finance, Warehouse, Planning, IT, Management) for dashboarding, KPI's and other (scheduled) reports, but we are looking after Qlik Sense to find out if/when we go from QlikView to Qlik Sense. We are very satisfied with Qlikview. We started to look at Qlik Sense because of the ability to use maps, scalability (desktop/tablet) and the self-service possibilities for our employees.,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.,7,I cannot quote any hard number, but Qlikview saved us lots of time (compared to the use of Excel before, or compared to use only the operating systems itself instead of making the data alive in charts and graphs). I guess with Qlik Sense it would be the same, but as stated before, we still use QlikView and are looking for the benefits of a transition to Qlik Sense, (--> not decided yet),We are exploring Qlik Sense these days. We still use Qlikview nowadays and I am satisfied with it. I think the mentioned use cases are more and more important, so maybe someday we will go from QlikView to Qlik Sense.,I haven't experienced this yet.,QlikView,Microsoft Office 2016Make sense with Qlik SenseQlikSense is used across different departments in our organization. The implementation uses the right data model based on how we want to consume our data. This alone solves data availability, quality and most of all, decreased dependency from the IT group.,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.

Qlik Sense Review: "Qlik making the most "Sense" above other competitors"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
Qlik Sense is being used across multiple departments in our organization as a reporting, analysis, and performance-tracking system. We have been able to drive up adoption with "quick win" dashboards that take the manual effort of creating Excel files at each month-end and allowing Qlik to be the source of historical information. We have dashboards that deal with our Branch outreach, Call Center, general Membership information, Robotic Process Automation results, and plenty more. In all, we have about 100 apps in production ranging from very small to very large size.
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.
Well suited:
  • Historical Analysis.
  • Tracking pools of products across an organization.
  • Real-time data analysis.
  • Prediction.

Less Appropriate:
  • 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 Sense Review: "Qlik's associative engine is the key differentiator"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

All employees throughout our organization use Qlik Sense as the primary tool to analyze and improve the performance of our online advertising products and to follow company KPIs. It has certainly changed the way we can react to things and made the company more data-driven.
  • 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 suits very well for use cases where the associative data model shines, i.e. finding reasons through quickly slicing and dicing through the data. It's also very easy to use from the end-user perspective and that's why many business users love it. For complex ad-hoc analysis and more flexibility, data scientists may want to use other tools to complement it.

Qlik Sense Review: "Quite easily the best solution to our BI needs"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use Qlik Sense across all four worldwide locations in our organization. Our objective was to deliver a self-service business analytics solution that would be robust, flexible in connecting with a wide range of source systems, responsive across desktops, tablets, and phones and easy to manage from any location. We are happy with the outcome and are looking to scale this to all major functions and to act as a single source of consumption of all data and analytics.
  • 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
Great if there are multiple sources of data and an analytical solution is needed. Will not recommend as a replacement of ETL other than a basic level.

User Review: "Qlik Sense"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Qlik Sense is used by our organization at an enterprise level. We are driving digital literacy throughout the organization and want to automate most of the processes. For example, when it comes to creating reports, we used to use Excel and would spend lots of time on it and similar products every month. To overcome this, we are using tools like Qlik Sense to automate the process of creating reports. We are also using Qlik Sense features like in-memory capability, associative data modeling, and others to create new dashboards and reports.
  • 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 Sense is very easy and fast to implement. It can be used at different levels of companies, and deployments are simple and straightforward.

User Review: "Qlik Sense as a system-wide solution"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
The intent is to use Qlik Sense across the whole organization. Currently, it has been launched within a few departments. We provide dashboards to make outcomes and processed data available to executives and managers in an effort to make one source of "truth". Historically, each department was responsible for pulling their own data and we would have multiple "answers" to the same question. In the future, we're hoping to provide drill-down levels with the data and to educate the user base to take advantage of it.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense seems to be well-suited to launch an app for a broad audience that doesn't need to do much drilling/analysis. If the data needs to be manipulated on the front-end (aka behind the scenes), Qlik seems to have good developer options. It is well-suited for viewing dashboards online, versus producing pdfs.

Review: "Qlik Sense is one of the best our there for storytelling and visualation"

Score 10 out of 10

We are using Qlik in a lot of different ways. All the way from monitoring our facilities' fire code standards to how our hospital contracts are performing. The facilities team wants to know how often fire hydrants are serviced to maintain code, so they map out locations and needs of servicing as one simple task. On the hospital and healthcare contracting side it becomes a lot more complicated. We look at how our negotiated contracts with our major payors are performing using multiple sources of data. Qlik handles different sources of data very well.
  • 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.

Qlik Sense Review: "Small and simple implementation from the persepective of a QlikView fan."

Score 8 out of 10

Qlik Sense is mainly used in my department where we use it to analyse and report on complex datasets. For example, where data from multiple line of business systems needs to be stitched together to see the full story. As a specific example, we have used QS to generate the Groups Gender Pay Gap reporting requirements.
  • Visualize complex relationships
  • Provide intuitive UX
  • Allow dynamic querying of data
  • Certain chart types that QlikView users would be familiar with are not (yet) available in QS.
  • Changing the size of charts to any size.
  • Allowing charts to be displayed behind other charts.
QS is best suited to visual, dynamic analysis where time to report is a significant factor. Particularly useful for graphical or map-based reporting. If you need static, tabular or text-based reports (e.g. traditional finance reports) then less well suited unless you also purchase the printing extension which will deliver similar outputs.

Qlik sense, at the moment, is only being used by our department, as we are busy creating new models from old existing QlikView models. Afterwards, it will be used by various departments in the organization to analyze and compare data.
  • 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.
If the colleague needs/wants to analyse or compare data in an efficient, easy, and very customizable way.

It is being used to analyze our sales data, drill down into the categories that we focus on, and look at trending data and vs budget. It is being used across the company to see high-level sales and also to look into department-specific KPIs and ad-hoc data analysis. Reports are consumed across the company and specific users are able to build their own chart with the potential to have them create their own reports in the future.
  • Scripting language
  • Easy to create visualizations
  • Drag and drop UI
  • Presentation is simple and clean
  • A little buggy.
  • Set analysis can take some time to get your head around.
Qlik Sense is very well suited to situations where you need a simple way of presenting complex data. It has a lot of visualizations which can be dragged and dropped onto the page, which also means it is fairly easy to set up some self-service analysis. Being able to take the visualizations and sheet created and embed them in a web page helps to get them onto large screens in the department offices.

  • 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

We extensively used Qlik Sense to deliver analytics and technical consulting services to mobile operators across Europe and Asia. We are not a reseller of Qlik Sense but we promoted Qlik Sense to an operator by showing its flexibility. Unfortunately due to close to zero support from Qlik Sense we are seriously considering other BI solutions.
  • 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 Sense is a very good product but due to close to 0 sales support from Qlik Nokia will not be able to use it any more. This is a shame

Our company began its experience with Qlik 6 years ago. At the beginning we used View and for two years we have integrated Sense and Nprinting. The IT (business intelligence) team and the MS (advanced analytics) team coordinate the infrastructure and manage the releases, which reach every branch of the company.
  • Adaptability
  • Integration
  • Ease of Use
  • Greater possibility of native customization
  • Fewer links to scripting and more wizards
  • Certified and officially maintained extensions
I believe that thanks to its scalability it is suitable for medium to large companies. The complexity of the proprietary language and the link with scripting make it not very accessible to small companies, where however it is certainly less necessary.

We use Qlik Sense to evaluate retail product performance over time and against other similar products both within and external to our business. We extract the data from our ERP system with a direct connection and prefer to use it over other tools because it allows us to blend in data from other sources like Medallia.
  • 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.
Qlik is great when you have many sources that do not talk to
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 used across the broader WBA company. I was involved in the implementation and subsequent use in our New York office. The use case was to consolidate information from our third party distributor and internal finance solution (SAP) to enable a balanced scorecard for the management team and more detailed analysis for finance, supply and commercial functions. The first phase of the project utilised QlikView. Subsequent phases migrated to Qlik Sense.
  • 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.
Qlik made it easy for us to identify how best to utilise their products to deliver tangible benefits to our company and customers. In the use case I described, we leveraged the company's existing Qlik infrastructure to quickly build an BI solution that made a step change to the units ability to make informed decisions. The toolset supported the agile approach we chose to employ as we incrementally added data sources and functionality to the solution. I was less well suited to the broader Data and Analytics strategy.

Qlik Sense is being used across the whole of my organization for various purposes, which includes assisting management in extracting BI from raw data we have on certain products and/or to help drive strategy based on such information, or monitoring the health of our risk portfolio and insuring data integrity. For me it presents data in a meaningful and easy to understand manner through an extremely user-friendly interface.
  • 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)
I personally see that Qlik Sense is great for large enterprises where they need to make sense out of large chunks of data for both strategic and regulatory purposes - but first and foremost they will need to have the infrastructure in place to capture large amounts of information of the business activities they are engaged in. At the same time I can see it being an issue where there is too much data as I would imagine Qlik Sense would be limited to how much information it can process. It is also probably less useful in smaller companies which do not have as much information.

Qliksense is being used by non-technical or people with limited technical backgrounds within our organization to produce data and analysis to enable performance management of our supply chain. The main reason we adopted Qlik is that it allowed us to take data from several of our legacy systems, Qliksense allows non-technical staff to produce data visualization with limited support from technical staff.
  • 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.
It is good for creating simple KPIs and metrics. For example, if you want a screen above an office that shows a simple count of how many tasks, etc. If you want charts with burn down rates or reference lines and things that are a bit more tricky it's less capable of doing this.

We are using QlikView nowadays in almost all our departments (Sales, Finance, Warehouse, Planning, IT, Management) for dashboarding, KPI's and other (scheduled) reports, but we are looking after Qlik Sense to find out if/when we go from QlikView to Qlik Sense. We are very satisfied with QlikView. We started to look at Qlik Sense because of the ability to use maps, scalability (desktop/tablet) and the self-service possibilities for our employees.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense is well suited for self-service and use of maps. For dashboarding I prefer QlikView, but overall the dual possibilities of Qlik are great. The community is a great place to seek and find everything about QlikView and Qlik Sense.

User Review: "Make sense with Qlik Sense"

QlikSense is used across different departments in our organization. The implementation uses the right data model based on how we want to consume our data. This alone solves data availability, quality and most of all, decreased dependency from the IT group.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense is best-suited to end users. Very good direction if you wish to lighten up workload off of the IT group. Just create the data model and throw it out there. End users given the proper training will always find it interesting to mold their own data for their specific purposes.

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.

User Review: "Qlik Sense in manufacturing domain"

We have been using Qlik products for the last 8+ years and started with QlikView. We recently were planning to move to QlikSense and had evaluated the product already. We are using Qlik products in operations, engineering, logistics, test and supply chain departments across the organization. We created a wide variety of dashboards and reports for business users to drive the operations, tool efficiency and program management efficiency.
  • 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.
Qliksense is well appropriate for all kind of users from management teams to technicians. We are a manufacturing domain and we provide a very detailed level of data to users who need raw details to troubleshoot manufacturing line issues. Qliksense is well suited for reports that need low level and column level security. Also, Qliksense is well suited without any additional ETL tools in the organization.

Qlik Sense Review: "Great product for certain industries"

Score 8 out of 10

Qlik Sense was used in our Aviation Security Operations across scheduling, planning, finance, human resources, and operational departments. It allowed us to manipulate and visualize millions of rows of data quickly and simply, and to connect data tables from numerous sources.
  • 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.
Qlik Sense would be well suited for companies that market or sell products. You can create financial models, track where you should target your marketing campaigns, and you can see how it all connects to each other quite easily. Unfortunately, there are several challenges when dealing with shift data, particularly with date time ranges and operational management in a security services industry.

"Qlik Sense Review"

We currently have a deployment to a small group of power users across the whole organization. It was implemented to help fulfill our model of self-service. Whereas our Qlikview serves as a means to facilitate dashboarding and KPIs. Qliksense was a means for self-service so users could generate their own decks
  • Data manipulation
  • Data joining
  • Presantation
  • Any means of worth
  • Additional visualizations
I have yet to find a reason or need for the product. I am unsure if it is due to not have a data-hungry/savvy user base or if the product lacks the power to be useful.
