Qlik Sense Enterprise from a user's perspective

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Qlik Sense is well suited for a dashboard developer where there are many users, and the dataset in question is large.

If the user wanted to do a quick and dirty data exploratory analysis of a given data file, Qlik Sense feels unwieldy, and other tools feel more snappy and easier to explore with.

QlikSense can transform your business, your decision making, and make the best use of resources

Well suited for dashboards and visualizations. Less appropriate with respect to speed and user-friendly customization like Power BI. Some dashboards take a long time to load. If the Qlik app size is more than 2 GB, then it works very slowly. The bot should be free.

Qlik Sense for Quick Insights!

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Qlik Sense is ideal where is there is a large volume of data (millions of rows), where there are many data sources and information needs to be restricted as to who and what they can see. In terms of development time required, Qlik Sense may not be suited where data rows are only in the thousands and where information can only add value if presented as tables (I.E., where visuals are not required).

Getting insight of your data using Qlik Sense

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

It is perfect for structured data, to create a dashboard, and to get a simple insight into the relationship between dimensions. It is less appropriate for unstructured data, since you will need lots of work to clean/transform the data. It also won't replace R or Python to get more advanced insight using many statistics available in the algorithms.

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.

Confusing product for a nonprofit that needs dedicated technical expertise to fully utilize

Score 3 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Well suited for departments where teams have actual software development and computer programming formal training. We are an Evaluation team that has technical skills but we are self-taught coders and do not have the knowledge base to set up systems for complex data analysis and visualization.

Training resources seem slim compared to more well-known visualization software (Tableau) which puts our relatively non-technical department at a greater disadvantage in using the product.

We have had a terrible time getting a response from the Qlik team re: expanding licenses and managing the switch from the Desktop to the cloud version of the software. Members of our leadership team and affiliate network members had to wait months before they were granted licenses and access to view their data and dashboards for decision making. This was after multiple calls and emails by our data analyst and our VP of Evaluation and Learning.

I really like the interface and the ability to build custom reports. The ability to add filters and develop a high degree of precision makes the reporting valuable. If one is trying to track and measure the effectiveness of campaigns based on collateral consumption is important, especially if they are spread among various channels, this tool and functionality is very important

Great promise, too difficult/time consuming to use to deliver on it.

Score 5 out of 10

Likelihood to Recommend

Qlik Sense Enterprise is best when:
  • You have a highly data literate team of stakeholders who will benefit from being able to do their own analysis.
  • You have an IT team familiar with Windows Server. (Not relevant to Cloud offering)
  • You have ample analyst resources and training time.

Qlik Sense Enterprise is problematic when:
  • You have limited analyst resources.
  • You have a broad array of data literacy among your end users, requiring more explicit graphs to be designed by your analysts.
  • You want to take advantage of a powerful big data warehouse with good on-demand OLAP performance.
I think there's a balance here that we've caught the wrong end of: Qlik is fine to serve as a BI tool to take you from relatively small firm to enterprise scale, but you need to be able to continually re-invest in analytics in order to make it work at larger scales, and if your org doesn't have the capacity to maintain a non-trivial team of experts to maintain the system, they may easily become overwhelmed. Training users in the tools they need to be really successful (Data Load scripting, set expressions, chart scripting) is time consuming and expensive.

Driving Performance Intervention with Data Visualization

Likelihood to Recommend

I think Qlik Sense is well suited to fill the need of an organization or individual in need of creating interactive visualizations from large data sets. Ultimately, when it comes to data analytics, it is vital to use a tool that integrates well in the environment of other software within the user's context, making Qlik Sense a tough sell over PowerBI in many Microsoft-dominated business contexts.

Interactive reporting and multi-dimensional analysis. The product is well suited to a technically literate team who don't want to maintain data warehouses but do want to work in detail with their data. With proper data modeling, it can also serve less technically skilled users as a drag and drop analysis tool, but this is probably less useful.

The system is ideal for large companies with a branched structure of departments, especially if the units are in different parts of the world. You can work with Qlik Sense on the corporate network, cloud, on a device, or in the version built into the application. To a lesser extent for small organizations.

From report creation to self service

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Qlik Sense is in our case well suited as we have different sources of databases - to link the data in the different systems. We have different invoicing systems/different accounting packages. Qlik Sense allows us to have margin/sales per client for the total group, regardless of the invoicing source - and do analyses on them. Qlik Sense is user-friendly and works well for self-service analytics. It would be overkill if it is used on one system and only for visual purposes. Or when reports are static and it is not the intention to give users the possibility to drill down and do their own analyses.

Qlik is great for anyone interested in data, whether that's producing apps or consuming/analysing data. There are occasions where it may still be quicker to do things with spreadsheets but those occasions are reducing as Qlik becomes quicker and easier to use, unfortunately taking away Qlik Sense Desktop (or making it time-limited) will have a detrimental impact on people playing and learning Qlik Sense.

Qlik is well suited for data collection and display. It is a lagging metric tool but needs more work done around the 'Insights' tool to assist with understanding what the data is telling us. An artificial intelligence tool added to this data would take this to the next level.

I think it is nice to use, great for us right now but the setup issues and the issues after the update make my ranking lower. It was really a bad situation when those updates came. I would also say unless you are linked directly to an ERP I would not recommend it. We are not and I manually update the data once a month. We are limited by this, this is not Qliks fault.

Qlik sense is well suited in displaying multi-tiered financial data and information. It is extremely user-friendly and makes it easy to build a necessary and useful dashboard in a timely manner. Qlik sense is not great when collaboration is needed in a single app.

There are a huge number of scenarios where Qlik Sense is suited, like for faster data retrieval, engine performance, REST API application for remote services, QVD Data Library for storing and reusing data for different applications.

But the scheduling service does not have the emailing service on its own which could be a great asset for Qlik Sense.
