It is our frontend BI tool and is generally used to pull information out of our database. We provide a flexible "report builder" which is valuable to our end users who build reports off QlikView reports. This reporting tool is used across many departments: SEM | BD | Partners | SplitTest | Finance,Fast - everything is in memory so it moves away from the traditional logistics of reading data from disc. Interface is fast to develop. Once a thoughtful data model is setup. The frontend development is fast and allows a RAD environment. The server itself is easy to maintain. Maintenance is low and does not need a typical "sys admin" to manage this reporting server Visualization - Graphically beautiful and provides that "bells and whistle" factor,The relationship of how data models are put together in QlikView - it requires good level of technical understanding how models are put together. If they had an ERD like framework when opening up an existing dashboard it would be helpful. The licensing model QlikView employs financially does not make sense for growing small companies. The support of AJAX technology is not up to par with its predecessor, IE plugin. They could do much better job implementing the same features in IE plugin over to AJAX users. The migration will be much simpler since AJAX will be the standard under Qlikview's new future versions.,9,,8,1,0,Vendor implemented Professional services company,Change management was a major issue with the implementation,1,1,9,8,9,1User Review of QlikViewWe are a small consulting firm with remote workers. I run the QlikView Practice and focus on the consulting area. I use Qlikview internal for delivery analytics such as utilization and resource planning.,ETL! QlikView is the simplest product that not only provides great visuals for UI but it also handles complex ETL. Easy to implement. We have successfully installed QlikView server and desktop within one week with a fully functional dashboard published for end users. DATA DISCOVERY! The green/white/grey is such a powerful tool. The first thing I do when II arrive onsite with a client is connect to their data and jump right into the data. The grey is the most valuable. I can see what is NOT relating to my selections. This is not possible, so far, in any other business discovery tool. Set Analysis! Qlikview's set analysis allows me to calculate from the very basic to the super complex expressions. It does not take long to learn either. QLIK COMMUNITY! The community consists of master users and Qlik employees and basic to new users. It is a huge resource for all users and allows you to get answers quickly then copy script and/or dashboards so no need to recreate the wheel. ITS FREE forever and fully functional. You just cannot open licensed applications. What a great marketing tool. QlikSense will be free forever with the ability to share your applications! Just gets better.,Licensing model could be easier to understand. It is not bad, but takes a while for the clients to understand it. QlikSense will have a greatly improved licensing model from what I hear. QlikSense is covering for all the requested Qlik11 improvements. I think the 2 products will compliment each other.,10,Tableau Desktop,Birst,SAP Business Objects,Crystal Reports,Microsoft Access,MicroStrategy Analytics,10,Not applicable to our firm as we are small consulting firm.,8,8,,1,Sales trending . Data blending Data discovery,No,Price Product Usability Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor Third-party Reviews,I would not,Implemented in-house,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,9,No,7,No,Data load wizards Table linking Chart wizards Data discovery via list boxes,Layout on sheets Gauge wizard Scripting for those who are not skilled,Yes,7Powerful Product, Great Online Support CommunityQlikview was used by our entire company but primary used by the Sales team. We wanted a way to track and identify hot leads who were most likely to convert to real buyers/subscribers of our product. We also wanted to understand what patterns led to buying and what the typical sales life cycle looked like.,Qlikview has an excellent online community support. This was probably the best part of buying the project. I had never worked in BI before purchasing Qlikview but after a short one-week class, I was up and running. Whenever I got stuck, I reviewed previous posts or posted a question myself. The questions were almost always answered within a couple of hours. The fantastic community really helped me learn the product. Qlikview is a great product and very powerful. It is not always easy learning all the formulas but for those who know it, it can do almost anything you want a BI tool to do. It is fantastic at integrating multiple sources of information. Qlikview provides a lot of free demo dashboards which are fantastic to learn from. They are open so you can see exactly how they were designed behind the scene. The variety of boards are a great strawman or baseline to use for almost any BI initiative that people take on.,The formula for harder BI analytics is neither intuitive or easy to learn. It really helps if you have some kind of SQL background. I really wish there were more out-of-the-box options that we can customize. It may be more of a server issue but it can take hours to run a single query. You have to define a lot of parameters for almost anything you create so the tool forces you to spend a lot of time selecting different options. I wish they had good pre-defined templates for layouts for us to choose from.,9,,5,3Share dashboards in real-time with QlikviewWe enjoyed the ability to share a session. This session allowed end-users to share a dashboard, manipulate it, and collaborate on the results in real-time. See more here - http://robertbgoodman.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/real-time-data-collaboration-by-qlikview/,Data must be properly structured to function within Qlikview. This applies to any in-memory tool, but it requires more effort than originally anticipated.,The ability to analyze trends and statistics on-the-fly makes a big impact to our admissions team. We are to better manage our admissions as a result of these analytics.,10,10,Provides in-memory dashboards for admissions data Allows admissions staff to quickly see trends on conversions and demographic dispersion. Then the data can be further sliced by dimensions such as FT/PT, Graduate or Undergraduate, etc.,,,Implemented in-house,8,Online training Self-taught,8,I would recommend purchasing online training. It was helpful during our implementation and will give your technical staff a steer in the right direction.,Yes,5Handles large amounts of data well, slick visualsIt does a good job of processing large amounts of data locally, so I use it to replace a lot of the analysis I do in Excel using vlookups and pivot tables. Nice graphics for dashboarding. Easy to flip between different chart types, dimensions and expressions.,Have had some performance issues the more users we have and the more we try to do with it. Does not handle joining multiple data sources together particularly well on the load or within the app. Some of the syntax is strange, so it might take a while to figure out how to write simple code using things like nulls and "not in". Year over year analysis if we want to compare the same day of the week instead of same date is really difficult since there aren't very good built in time functions. We either lose a couple days that the beginning or end of the year, or get caught up on leap years or other things like that.,9,10,Reporting business metrics to analysts and senior leadership. Data integrity/validation and operations reporting.,Don't know,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,10,For me it was, since I prefer learning on my own. There is plenty of information online, so I usually just Google it or use the QV community on their site to get answers quickly.,10,9,Database. Flat files.,Big data tools.

Qlik does have a tendency to push back sometimes stating that the issue is not related to QlikView but the system it is hosted on
