In most cases, Qlik Sense is very intuitive and straightforward to develop and use. Once you understand the ingenuity of set operations and how they relate to data models & dimensions, it all becomes clear. What I'd like to see more is better support for the "Last N months" type of reporting. It can be done, but it could be somewhat simpler.

Qlik Sense offers an end-to-end solution that scales well. I would advise any organization whether small or large to give it a try. The delivery of output is browser-based and so is the development. This makes its platform independent as far as users are concerned, and the result is a seamless and scalable solution. Also advantageous is the ability to develop, control, and maintain from the stage of data ingestion up to the front end. To those companies where one is expected to build their own dashboards on the go, Qlik Sense can have a steep learning curve.

Qlik Sense excels most in corporate environments where there is a mix of profiles, those who need guided analysis and those who want a degree of autonomy. I would say that Qlik Sense is not appropriate for streaming needs or for environments where static reporting or many "passive" users are required.

[Qlik Sense] is fantastic for quick data analyze when you want to check the numbers between all companies channels. Stock and sales.
it is also very good for making purchase decisions or to control your stock levels in general. The data is under your hands in seconds and all the information is very clear

Qlik Sense is very well suited for corporate level data as it enables the combination of virtually all data sources and Qlik unique QVD format allows to create virtual layers of data. A feedback I often get is that it is too complex for really simple situation where just a excel tool that are mainly focused on visualization only can surpass it on quickness of execution.

Qlik Sense is a self-service tool. So in scenarios where users are only thinking of using one tabular report created out of one table, then I think Qlik Sense isn't needed. The modeling of Qlik Sense is robust and is well suited in cases where there is a large volume of data from multiple sources.

Qlik Sense is a data analytics and data visualization tool, so we need to provide dashboards to the client where they can do the analysis and can understand the market situation and take the decision as per the data. So we have provided them market related dashboard and it helps them a lot. But [when] it comes to big data, Qlik Sense is not the tool to use. So if the data is in table form it is highly recommended to use Qlik Sense, otherwise use other tools.

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 is suited for self-service analysis. Currently, we are using Qlik Sense for Manufacturing, HR, IT, Finance, Supply Chain. Most apps are for a specific use and used within a department and not company wide. We do not have external apps. We have used Qlik Sense for very limited predictive analytics.

As I said, I'm a novice user, but I really would love to learn how to use it to its full potential. I envision building dashboards for our development officers, running reports on various data points, etc.

QS is excellent for generating KPIs, easy for the end-users to access and navigate.
The ability for the user to filter and sort data in every way possible makes it easier to create applications as these need not be so specific in detail.
It is relatively easy to script end create streams/apps thus you can come a long way without being an IT professional :-)
QS is not so good at (automatically) exporting data for other systems to use.

It’s well suited for presenting past performances and it’s less suited for forecasting. It’s better for operational figures and less for financial figures. For that use the presentation possibilities are too little. The functionality for Qliking to detail information is marvelous as well as the functionality of filters, measures and dimensions.

Qlik Sense is well suited for complex data analysis. The Pivot chart reporting feature, for example, helps to efficiently organize and present data that might otherwise be tough to drill into and analyze. Qlik Sense is perhaps a less appropriate tool or software when it comes to requirements that are oriented a lot towards statistics, rather than business intelligence reporting.

Qlik Sense is very good when Businesses need to get lots of data for various sources and to quickly adjust the data presented. It can also act as an in-time analyzer for quick Proof of concept studies. When we have business teams working in dedicated applications, then it's better to have reporting directing in that application, so users don't need to open second app(Qlik), instead they use only 1 app.

Qlik [Sense] is suited for "power" data analytics users. [I feel,] it is not appropriate for 90% of the business-world population that can barely run spreadsheets and cannot use the more complex features of Qlik [Sense]. [In my experience,] it is not appropriate at all for situations where data extraction and submission [are] necessary. Also, [in my opinion,] it is not cost-effective or scalable for embedding into other applications. Licensing is too expensive.

Qlik Sense is great for simple set databases analysis. Data which are stored in SQL database and well organized or directly in some excel files. The system allows us to read and cross information in a very easy way which allows the discovery of good insight. Where the system is not the best is if you need to access live data and display changes that occur every minute.

When you have large data sets from multiple sources and you need to apply screening, interpret and add filtering/category fields then view you data from macro to micro detail, then Qlik Sense is the tool you need. The distribution of the application to non Qlik Sense licensed end viewers can be an issue if you need to rapidly expand especially in an organisation that is adopting Agile at scale, with flexible and fluid work groups.

Qlik Sense Enterprise is an ideal BI solution for mid- to large-scale organizations, especially those with many on-premises data sources. The overhead of administration would make Qlik Sense Cloud the better platform for small organizations or those who have already moved much of their data infrastructure into the cloud. The robust data modelling allows many wildly different data sources to be cleansed and organized with robust flexibility.

The Qlik Sense system is really well suited to all businesses of varying sizes and to all user types (i.e. basic, power user, advanced user, and consultant). Data is an asset to any business, so to use Qlik Sense to leverage that asset and to have a robust and user-friendly environment to develop new analytics artifacts in is a real bonus.
Basically, if you can afford the product then it is probably worth taking a good look at whether it is a best-practice product that you want to opt for. Perhaps the Cloud-hosted option is the best one to go for since that is the way of the future and a lot of new functionality is released on the Enterprise Cloud edition first. Also, that way you are not looking at the hosting costs and server management such as version upgrades in the same way.
