Qlik Sense, Tableau, Power BI and Looker are all great tools that will cover and add value to virtually every organization. They are a bit different and the decision of selecting one and not other can reside in the particular needs of each case. Qlik Sense integration with NPrinting, adding the capability of sending highly customized offline reports in addition to online data exploration it was a most in our case.

I used Tableau at a previous organization, Qlik was provided to me by IT at my current organization. I have also used PowerBI. All three products provide the functionality I need. However, it would be good if the end user could create the dashboards and visualizations without the need to employ a developer.

We looked at both Microsoft Power BI and Tableau. They both have similar functionality and can get to the end results of Qlik Sense. The big determining factor was how much time that we would have to develop reports and stories. We found that Qlik Sense allowed us to develop and edit the overall story in timely manner.

Qlik was selected before I arrived and I would not select it again in comparison to any of the alternatives I've worked with, unless that was the enterprise mandate.

We have used QlikView at our organization for analytics for the last 10 years. We were able to use our knowledge of QlikView to transition to Qlik Sense for self service analytics. We have reviewed Power BI and Tableau. Tableau has more formatting and visualization available but the scripting in Qlik Sense is more versatile.

First and foremost, the ability of Qlik to play nice with SAP and utilize SAP Extractor. Second, the Grey-White-Green feature for basic insight is also very useful.

QlikSense is much faster and much more user-friendly.

Users with only two day front-end training can develop their own reports which is really powerful and efficient.

  • Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)
Sense is completely different to Discoverer. Discoverer is basically data selection/filtering/flat-tables. Sense adds flexible selections, visualisations, KPIs, data-prep.

We keep Cognos and Qlik. Cognos is best for formatted Excel files automated in emails. Qlik is easier to use for dashboards for the end users.

The only other one I've experienced is Tableau, and I've used that very sparingly. There's nothing that stands out to me about Tableau that is so much stronger that it would make me consider pushing for our organization to switch.

I was involved in a proof of concept for Looker when we were considering switching to their product. When compared to Qlik Sense the tool didn't come close to meeting our needs.
