I am a part of the Analytics department and we implement QlikView based dashboard/ solutions to address clients' business problems. Typically, I have worked with Insurance and Healthcare(Pharmaceutical) clients which are market leaders in various geographies like US, India, etc.,in memory application AQL i.e auto association QVD conditional hide n show feature,Implementing maps other than that of US Real time data handling is not possible device compatibility isn't there,9,Tableau Desktop,8,7,Qlik Sense, Microsoft SQL Server, Teradata DatabaseGreat for Desktop-based Analysts who want to EXCEL beyond MS ExcelI use Qlikview to analyze sales data, customer satisfaction (survey) data, and to build dashboards to display and analyze to senior leadership, and marketing management. It is the business intelligence tool of choice for the organization and is used to synchronize the look and feel of analytics across multiple functions and applications (such as data from Salesforce, Qualtrics, Google Analytics, and other applications).,Easy Data Import and Data Manipulation. I really like how easy it is to import new data and how I can edit the script to clean and format data automatically. Creating Business Intelligence visualizations and creating more complex visualizations than I can make in Excel (locking them down is helpful too!). Creating interactive elements that allow non-technical users to glean more useful insights at the click of a mouse.,Qlikview desktop is not easy to share with users who do now have Qlikview. It would be nice to have a sharable "read only" version of the qlikview file that could be emailed to people who just want a report. I wish Qlikview was better built for responsive design. It would make it a lot easier to share with users who have large screens or are working on small laptops. I design to my screen but that doesn't work for everyone and the zoom feature makes things fit but not necessarily proportionally sized. Easier quick start guide for new business users. The UI is not super friendly but once you get used to it, it all makes sense. However, I think a more freshened up UI could help more functions support it faster instead of relying on Excel for everything.,8,,10,4,Microsoft Access, Google Analytics, Salesforce Marketing Cloud Email Studio, Qualtrics, SurveyGizmoVery useful, but overly complicated at times.Qlik is used by certain departments. Some other departments use different data visualization tools. It offers a way to build visualization tools that meet our client's needs. It is flexible enough that templates can be developed that will suit the needs for multiple clients. It also makes self service a little bit easier.,Allows self service, freeing up analyst time resources for large fish. Flexible enough to be used in multiple business problem types. Can point to multiple data sources, making blending a little easier.,Colors and graphics look dated Some of the functionality is clunky, making what should be easy changes more complicated than they should be.,7,Tableau Desktop and Microsoft Power BI,9,8,Alteryx Analytics, Microsoft SQL ServerQlikView goes deep into QuickBooks data -- a little training takes you a long wayMy clients use QlikView (or I should say that I use QlikView for my clients!) to build reporting and "dashboards" based on accounting and operations data. Primarily, we use the version bundled inside of QuickBooks 2015 Enterprise (called "Advance Reporting"), and have created very nice -- and quite complex -- reports based on the QlikView engine / modules. Specifically, we report on sales commissions earned by sales person, on a per-item, per customer basis -- great detail that is simply not possible without QlikView.,QV's #1 strength is the drag and drop visualization tools -- with just a bit of training, you can make some really nice looking charts QV's #2 strength is the simplicity of the filtering. Other SQL languages might call this "linking" or database structure ... which can be a pain.... but QV makes this easy. Further, once the data is inside QV, the ability to FILTER the data using check boxes is completely intuitive and simple. QV's #3 strength is its ability to work across platforms and integrate multiple data sources and multiple types of data. QuickBooks data is just one example of something that it can chew up with ease.,Like a lot of software, QV starts with a blank page. If you are like me, you dive in without reading the instruction manual. Big mistake. There is a rigid stepwise process that you must follow to make it work.... I've never used anything quite as powerful as QV, so I cannot compare this to many other packages. ... but with 30 minutes of training and an hour of practice, you can be pretty proficient.,10,,QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, Google Drive, TeamViewer,10,10,2,,Sorting marketing lists or databases Evaluating sales metrics Analyzing production results from machinery -- any data file.,Financial Dashboards Sales commissions calculations SQL tasks on large spreadsheets,None... sorry!,9Reporting almost made easyI work for an MSP. QlikView is used by some of our current clients. My role is to maintain the support and in some cases recommend the product to other clients where possible.,Discovery aspect of user visibility of data. Ease of publishing reports to web interface. High speed filtering of wide long data sets.,QlikView has some issues with macros. Most of the support calls are issues with macros. Perhaps improve it. Doc Cal licensing encourages development of poorly formed reports that has lots of tabs and chart objects. Old windows style development IDE with poor debugging capabilities.,8,SAP Business Objects and Tableau Desktop,SAP Business Objects, SAP Business One, Tableau Desktop,7,8

Qlikview is better for desktop-based analysts or managers who already have qlikview desktop installed. Because of the proprietary file type and the lack of mobile-friendly reports, it can be difficult to have reports on the fly. Having "global" reports is useful when using the server version, however for desktop-only clients, sharing and versioning can be difficult if users have to physically/email share the reports/dashboards.

We have the ability to share dashboards with clients pretty easily. Formatting is a bit dated, and as mentioned earlier can be a little more complicated. For example, some charts require you to go into the settings to change headers, when this should be an easy double click on the object.

You can create as many different reports / views as you like, naming them each individually and saving them locally. Then, you can also take those same reports and share them with a colleague -- via email! It's great for client support in that way -- make the report in your office and deploy it in theirs. So long as you are using tables structured in the same way, your reports will work great.

Be ware that in some cases (QuickBooks integration being one), QV relies on a COPY of the data, so if your data changes, you need to REFRESH the data prior to running the report. This is NOT a "real time" tool in that sense -- although refreshing is pretty quick (1-5 minutes), so you could get "up to date" reports if you are not super time sensitive.

Once a dashboard is created, it can be shared between all users. However, a single user's changes cannot be shared with other users and thus making the collaboration capability limited.

You can select the filters/parameters that you would like to analyze and share it in real-time. The recipient can then see that selection, modify it, and as they modify the shared dashboard, it will update dashboards.

Sharing and collaboration are easy and pretty simple IF both users have the license for the document being reviewed. Sharing is difficult with Small Business Server if a user does not have at least a document license to view the document. Also, copying a chart out of QlikView into excel does not work well either, as the charts appear "grainy". Small Business server does not have a distribution tool built in

There really are no sharing or report distribution capabilities beyond cloning reports and sharing them. But multiple users cannot work on the same report. I believe that QlikView has purchased NPrinting which will give it report distribution capabilities.

It is easy enough to either share your screen to go over certain data with another team member. It's also easy to email the file to someone or export as multiple views. I like to export as a csv file and then format it to the key data we need for that campaign and then send over that data to a larger team and management to discuss.
