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.

Qlik Sense makes sense

Qlik Sense itself is quite easy to implement to support BI activities in the organization. We develop Qlik apps in a mixed-mode. Something we do in-house, but for bigger tasks we ask a partner to help. Each app covers its own company area or process to support managers and their teams. It's quite important to think about actual needs when you decide to develop a new one. Deep analysis of current information and forecasting almost always provides more value to the company than analyzing historical data. Try to focus on that and Qlik should help.

Qlik Sense has unmatched service, I mostly like the power to show not only what we have filtered, but what we are missing, it shows and unearthing the hidden insights. Qlik associate engine is one of the unparalleled and powerful engines I have used in the domain and has been a great leader in BI/analytics space. I also like how Qlik Automation has been a game changer and we are moving more and more our MS Automation over to Qlik. Overall Qlik Automation experience is very fantastic and brings the support team closer in case of any challenge or inconvenience.

What I like the most about this application is that it is really easy to use, it is intuitive, dynamic and very simple to implement, to begin with this is already a great achievement. On the other hand, I like being able to have a central platform that generates the reports, with minimal security rules to prevent unauthorized data manipulation. For me it has been of great help to generate reports from large databases, unify data and criteria and generate analysis, according to this information. I have used it in different organizations in which I have worked, which broadens its scope since it is not limited to one sector, but can be used in any field, for the analysis of any type of data.

Fidelity's Quality Assurance division was using Qlik Sense to build Dashboards for tracking performance, day to day impact and contribution of Quality Engineers. There was a lot of data in the form of various reports, which was getting generated from our Daily automation suite execution which was needed to be presented to management in forms of Pass, fail results and a trend graphs so that management team can judge the stability of our Production systems from Test maturity stand-point.

We use Qlik Sense to track our impact and the outcomes of the women we help. Since Qlik Sense uses html5, we now have a faster end-user interface with more appealing charts. The create stories functionality has helped us to optimize reports, using the same template but automatically updating the data. You can use map charts that provide more visual context to the information you are presenting.
With Qlik Sense we are not only providing information, but we are also telling storing about the women we help.

We use Qlik Sense to analyze data, set metrics, and track service outcomes. It is a powerful BI tool connecting databases to create analytical reports. Qlik Sense's easy to add references from multiple platforms and blend them into locally-stored data models for fast reloading and manipulation. Using Qlik to combine ERP and BI data sped up business processes. It was a valuable tool for integrating data without needing a database. Our data was extracted quickly, cheaply, and without rewriting our legacy database architecture. The ETL tool outperforms other technologies in loading, transforming, and auto-scheduling. Qlik Sense's built-in ETL feature solved our problem.

The main objective is to answer critical business questions, underline the main KPIs and define new ones based on business changes and technology development.

Qlik Sense is a powerful BI tool that allows users to generate analytical data report's directly by connecting with the databases. It supports a wide variety of databases I primarily use SQL and Oracle DB. It supports fast connectivity with the DB for extraction of large data sets and allows for easy creation of dashboards. The data modeling features allow the developer to see the linkages amongst data sets and are extremely useful while working month extremely large datasets.
