What is Qlik Sense?

Qlik Sense is a business intelligence (BI) and visual analytics platform that supports a range of analytic use cases. Built on Qlik’s Associative Engine, it supports a full range of users and use-cases across the life-cycle from data to insight – with self-service analytics, interactive dashboards, conversational analytics, custom and embedded analytics, mobile analytics, and reporting. The solution comes in three different editions - Qlik Sense Enterprise, Business, and Team. Qlik Sense can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises.

The Qlik Sense analytics platforms aims to empower everyone in organizations to make data-driven decisions. People of all skill levels get analytical power, with associative exploration and search, AI-powered insight suggestions, AI-accelerated creation and data prep, advanced analytics integration, and natural-language, conversational interaction. They can share and communicate the insights they discover and get answers anywhere they work – with interactive and secure online and offline mobility. And for the enterprise, users get a platform with open and standard APIs for customization and extension, data integration and connectivity, centralized management and governance, and a Kubernetes based SaaS / multi-cloud architecture driving scalability across combinations of on-premise, private, and public cloud environments.

Qlik Sense can easily integrate multiple data models to visualize customer data. Tableau is easy to use—perhaps more manageable than Qlik—but expensive. Microsoft BI was chosen because it was similar to previously used formats but lacked Qlik's user interface.

Qlik Sense is one of the best reporting systems. It is stronger than PBI and Tableau when speaking about complex KPIs. It is really similar to MicroStrategy Analytics when you speak about obtained results, but it is easier to use, especially as it is more code-based. But is it weaker than PBI and MicroStrategy Analytics on the live approach as you need to upload memory for the data while the others allow live readings from DB.

Qlik Sense is definitely a very powerful business intelligence tool. with its natural language analytics capabilities, it is faster and more accurate as well. Qlik Sense can also easily integrate with multiple data models to pull data and show them in the most pleasing visualizations to the customers. It has various customizations for dashboards as well.

Tableau is relatively easy to use- it might even be easier to use than Qlik but it was much more expensive. The Engineering team liked Microsoft BI because it was similar to previously used formats, but did not have the user interface that we believe Qlik does better. Price wise, it is hard to beat Qlik. There is less documentation with Qlik, but still a lot.

We originally went with Qlik Sense because the desktop version used to be free for single users and was a very good proposition for us (we are a non-profit with a limited budget). However, from what I see, the functionality is comparable, and Qlik Sense stacks up well.

As soon as you want to pull data from two or more separate tables, Qlik Sense leaves the rest in the dust, since it does not require joins or complex transformations. Zoho CRM analytics are limited to the data located in the product itself. No external tables can be combined.

Comparing Qlik Sense to other products has come down to its security features. Qlik Sense secures proprietary information through data encryption at rest, with the industry-standard AES-256 GCM as the encryption algorithm wins it in the procurement decisions making. Qlik Sense also generates periodic reports on CPU and RAM usage metrics, unlike others. With Qlik Sense you will also view the necessary data with row and column-level permissions through login-specific section access.

Other tools were not able to handle complex business requirements and performance was not too good with very huge volume data. we were required to maintain history, time-based data backups, and snapshots. Also, some of the tools were too costly compare to Qlik [Sense] solutions.

When it comes to working with large datasets out of the box, Qlik in my opinion is unrivaled amongst the competitor. However, the overall user experience and customization options available to developers require a lot of work. When compared to other options on the market, we're able to easily create beautiful looking dashboards in PowerBI or Tableau but it's definitely a struggle with Qlik. Although Javascipt and restful API are nice to have, this is not a common skillset you often find amongst data folks. This also makes hiring talent a challenge.

Qlik is very intuitive and can be rolled out to a user based with limited IT background much more broadly and with more ease than other tools that are similar in nature. We've been please with the learning curve of standard business users in there adoption of the Qlik toolset.

Qlik Sense is, unfortunately, completely useless to my team. As non-IT stakeholders looking for business analytics for projects, org-wide tracking, and KPI analysis, we simply don't have the access or support level needed to benefit from any of the features. Power BI is supported much more widely within our organization, with several teams dedicated to analytics using this tool and committed to putting data where it needs to be to connect to Power BI. Qlik was only handled by a few certain teams within DSI/metrics teams and largely inaccessible due to the typical "put in a ticket and we'll get to it" reply from developers.
