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.

Using Qlik Sense to link large datasets to Excel and Exod has simplified our data work. The report loads information quickly from an extensive database. It can handle complex data models well, and we'll watch it perform. We can combine vast amounts of data, which works well and quickly.

We did not combine different data sources as we prefer to create unique enterprise data warehouses and then read only one source system. Still, we did build complex data models and a high level of detail with customer, store, transaction, and hour level of detail.

SaaS-based visual analytics solution that empowers you to collaborate, share insights, and see the whole story in your data anywhere at any time.

We have used multiple data sources to combine features with excel and another database. Qlik Sense was really good at combining multiple data sources. It was fast and accurate, to say the least. It can also very well handle complex data models which we will be looking forward to seeing it outperform.

Qlik Sense Enterprise has made it possible for us to combine data from various sources - excel, smart sheets, Snowflake, MySQL, toad, and numerous other sources but from the cloud as well as localized personal computers. Qlik has made it possible for us to easily combine the data from these various sources without having to manually combine them. It has saved us countless hours.

Earlier we were connecting the large datasets to excel and exod used to crash because of the size of the data. This problem was easily solved after using qlik sense . Also the data can be combined from multiple sources and the heirarchy of data can be viewed in the data model to see how data is connected. Also the report easily work with large database without any lags in loading data.

We sometimes combine our main data source, which is a Postgresql database, with other sources, such as locally developed Excel lists, and the integration between the two is straightforward. Mostly we use Qlik Sense as a "window" to visualise trends in the main data source.

We essentially deploy Qlik Sense to be utilized with multiple data sources, such as on-premise, across multiple clouds, and everything in between. Qlik Sense has the ability to work with complex data and the freedom and flexibility to use any infrastructure as business requirements change. As an example, we deploy Qlik Sense seamlessly on the Kubernetes cluster running in both public and private clouds.

There were often difficulties with data teams figuring out how to code complex data models in Qlik with multiple conditions.

This led to delays in reporting, and some issues becoming apparent down the track.

When reports were accurate, it was very easy to "set and forget" and be a user rather than a report manager. This led to easier program management, and freed up time to explore the data to see if there were issues with the program that needed addressing.

We are able to combine different sources of data with ease. There has not been a format that we cannot support. The use of APIs combined with the ODBC to our ERP databases has resulted in many combinations of data not obtainable before. We are able to utilize categorizations in simple excel spreadsheets to overcome some attributing in our ERP and Retail Systems. No more cumbersome Excel Vlookups. Reports are consistent and not departmentally siloed.

We are a global company and we have many different tools and databases. On top of that many users still have their own personal datasets, XL files etc. Qlik has been out go to platform to combine all these diff datasets and come up with standard dashboards that can be used across the company.

It has, we were able to join multiple large datasets together into a cohesive dashboard for the end user to consume. The overall experience has been positive, the most common complaint we received is due the look and feel of the dashboard itself. Qlik Sense does lack some of the finer control that was available in QlikView which a lot of the business miss[es].

Our organization has benefited from this since we have been able to merge multiple databases into a single cross-collaborative platform. We have access to different databases within the same app. This has allowed us to merge data into an app allowing for better overall analysis for sales and inventory tracking.

Yes, we have benefited from this capability by combining data from legacy systems into visualizations. These visualizations inform the decision making process and help investigate problems. Combining data from disparate systems also helps to bring discrepancies to the forefront. Many of those discrepancies would not have been visible without comparing the data from different systems side-by-side.

Yes. We link up with many different data sources. From public repositories to internal data ware houses. Bring all this different data into a unified data model helped analyse many critical business issues and take right decisions. Qlik also has help us be nimble and independent by allowing us not be dependent on any particular technology stack.
