It has helped to reduce ad hoc reports and increase communication and awareness. It has been utilized for general info and to help target specific problems.,Data Visualization Dashboards Data Analysis,Report building tool itself is very different than many other BI tools Setting up your layouts/data visualization display could be easier. Reminds me of trying to make adjustments in Visio,8,IBM Cognos,8,8,Business Intelligence Discoverer, Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud ServiceQlikview reviewWe are using QlikView to visualize our data quality management dashboards with either business users, their management or executives of our company. Using with QlikView documents (QVD) and QlikView views (QVW) helps us to distribute data with a variety of user interfaces. Tablet support is enabled for our executives and they can check their dashboards anytime and make decisions upon change of the data.,Fast development Easy SDLC implementation Visualization performance Variety of charts Ability to answer needs,Faster data refresh policy for static and changing records on the same page More Data Compression,9,Tableau Desktop and SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards,10,10,SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) PlatformQlikView ReviewIt is used as an alternative data visualization solution in our department and there was an exploration of applying it on different projects.,Free desktop version Faster More selection of charts,Confusing user interface Small community Time intensive formatting,7,Tableau Desktop,8,6,Tableau DesktopQlikview: The older horse in a heat full of young stallionsIt is used by finance and all of the various product line management teams to help determine the financial information not only of the company as a whole but down to specific items in our global portfolio. We can track high and low performing products over specific periods of time.,Aggregates the data relatively quickly Allows some simple forms of graphing the data to present Can drill down to specific items,Is not user-friendly out of the gate. It takes some time to understand how to navigate through the data to get what you want. Is limited to the data the finance team feel the users want to see. Cannot control finite amounts of filtering. While it can and does filter data well the presentation of the data has a very late 90's early 2000's feel to it with no way to change.,5,Power BI For Office 365,3,1,SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) PlatformQlikView is a viable, affordable solution compared to TableauQlikView is currently being used by the Finance and Accounting departments. We use it to run analytics, create dashboards, run KPIs, pull data for sales tax filings, and for month-end close reconciliations,It is fairly user-friendly for creating new Apps. It has the ability to handle large volumes of data -- over 5000+ lines. The ability to extract the data into excel, pdf files, etc..,It is not clear why, when you extract data into Excel, certain columns are shaded a dark grey -- and this changes each time. There appears to be no consistency or reason.,8,Tableau Desktop,8,8QlikView: Perfect Data Exploration Tool for a Department on a Tight BudgetWe use QlikView as a data exploration tool for non-experts. Our front-line staff can use QlikView to dig into our data, explore what's available, what prospects might be in a particular area, what a possible population might be for a targeted event, mailing or solicitation. Our entire department has access to Qlikview--some users rely more heavily than others on data to inform their decisions. Those users are digging into QlikView to get a picture of what their data looks like quickly and easily.,QlikView has a simple, relational data model that's REALLY fast. Filtering and changing data is dead simple results are almost immediately available. The free version of Qlikview is almost completely featured, so you roll a pro-level product out to an entire department for really cheap. QlikView is really flexible--if you can imagine it, you can build it.,Because it's such a clean slate, QlikView requires some UI design. You've got to think about how you want to display not only the data itself, but the filters and controls users need to explore the data. It can also be a pretty confusing to your users: if they filter in one place, they often forget that they've done so and don't understand why they're not seeing all their data elsewhere. The free version of Qlikview doesn't push data updates, so if users forget to refresh their data manually, they can be working from an old copy of the data. Paid versions solve this problem.,8,Tableau Desktop and Qlik Sense,10,3,RStudioQlikview from a glanceQlikview is being used across many departments as a way of consolidating various data sources and systems. We use Qlikview to view reports or filter data for reporting use. Qlikview in my organization addresses the issue of having to look in multiple places to get like or similar data such as inventory by DC, transport by store/dc, and various data sets which are stored in different systems. Qlikview allows as to organize data from different systems that would otherwise not communicate with each other.,Has great visual dashboards Can consolidate data sets from many sources Is user friendly and easy to learn Allows you to slice and dice data easily,Depending on the quantity of data sources it can be slow to refresh If not managed well data integrity can be an issue Creating dashboards is not easy,8,MicroStrategy Analytics, Adaptive Insights and Qlik Sense,10,3,Qlik Sense Cloud, MicroStrategy Analytics, Adaptive Insights,50,6A software to keep our data updatedOur business is about obtaining and managing data for our geographical systems, and using this data to create new trends and new products for our business. We have two main departments: the geographical department, where I work, and the IT department, where the whole core of our systems stands. The whole organization uses the software because we have all the systems integrated (products, prices and IT) so the whole company speaks the same language. As a business, we get the data of people, transportation, store preferences, products preferences and business management in order to deliver products for a variety of things: stores, delivery products, public offices or transportation offers.,Manages a great amount of data and brings the best of it Analyzes data and develops new trends for the products we made Send a new set of data for the products in our business,The software needs an IT team in the company that can handle the troubles with the code systems that I, as a user, can't deal with. The software needs a maintenance contract to be able to modify the configurations of the data in order to adapt to our needs. The software is a very useful tool but has to be more intuitive for the users to manage some functionality and be faster with our daily work.,9,SAP Access Control and Tableau Desktop,8,8,ArcGIS, Google Analytics, Microsoft AccessQlikView - Not a Bad Visualization ToolWe use QlikView to visualize aggregated data for our projects. The last project that I worked on was an auditing system. I pull numbers of files accessed and number of database reads that the auditing system generated and graph these numbers on a daily basis. Once a day, I look the QlikView-generated graphs to determine if their is any spike in the numbers. If there is, then I look into the spike and attempt to determine why it happened. This is a very easy and quick way of looking at the content of about twenty emails to determine if there were any abnormal audit items.,QlikView allows you make data-backed visualization very easily. The format of these visualizations is completely up to you and your team. QlikView can show your data in many type of graphs as well as show the actual numbers associated with graphical points. We use QlikView to access data on Microsoft SQL Server, but other data sources are supported. Check out the QlikView documentation to determine if they can use data in formats that you need to perform analysis on.,We found that QlikView can be a bit slow in supporting some forms of encryption. It is web-based and we needed to upgrade all of our server to not support the older SSL and TLS 1 protocols, only support TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. However, QlikView could not run with TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3. We had to wait over six months to get a version that would handle the newer TLS versions. There are so many options with QlikView that you can get lost when developing a visualization. There are still items I have not yet figured out, such as labeling a graph with the name of a selected detail item. QlikView works by pulling the data it is going to use for visualization into its database. I am a security reviewer and I need to make certain that PII and PHI is not pulled by QlikView for a visualization, otherwise this could become a reportable indecent.,6,,8,8,Visual Studio IDE, Netwrix Auditor, Team Foundation ServerQlickView - a tool for business analystsQlikView is being used by the business analysts to create custom reports which allow them to analyze our data.,Easy to use by users without a big technical knowledge. Easy to integrate different data sources. Fancy reports.,It is really slow, the performance should be improved. The ability to test reports can be improved, it takes a lot of time just for testing.,7,Pentaho,9,10,Pentaho, Oracle Java SE, IntelliJ IDEA, IntelliJ WebStorm, Slack, BlueJeansQlikView and the reason behind the Preference over other BI Tools.We have been QlikView for Data Visualizations for the past two years. The major use case is of a self-service BI for all business users in the organization. We have been using the same to analyze data and identify data discoveries to support decision making. Around 4 to 5 business units have been using QlikView for the past 6 months now. Two more teams are using it on a trial basis. The major use cases center around generating new views of data on the fly. We use it to provide an associative experience across all the data used for analysis, regardless of where it is stored.,Performance aspects are the major reason behind picking QlikView. We have tried working with Tableau but find QlikView comparatively is faster. QlikView can effortlessly combine all sizes of data sets. Gauge charts and 3D graphs were not available on other platforms when we started evaluating QlikView. In QlikView, gauge charts are available for you to use in an ease of use system. QlikView also has 3D graph forms to showcase data. BI Reporting is a strong feature of QlikView. Strong visualizations with BI reporting are one reason why we picked the solution as they help us deliver requirements faster.,In QlikView, building a map visualization takes a long time since it needs scripting and external extension for this. The interface of Qlikview has too many items and tools on its menu which are rarely used but provide a wide range of ways in which the data can be showcased. The areas where graphical changes need to be, you will have to write the logic for it. No Drag and Drop implementations.,7,Tableau Server and Microsoft Power BI,8,7,Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web ServicesQlikView is great for BIIn my previous role at the state's department of finance, we used QlikView in our department as our Business Intelligence solution. Because of its easy integration with different data sources, we were able to leverage QlikView as our main data analysis and reporting tool.,One of its most useful features is real-time collaboration and version tracking. QlikView has some of the best data visualizations available and is useful in finding any hidden data relationships or patterns.,From some of the feedback we received from users in my previous job, it seemed as if the learning curve for non technical people was quite steep. The pricing model for this product can be a little prohibitive for smaller organizations.,8,Tableau Online,7,7,Sophos Endpoint Protection, Google Analytics, Adobe Advertising CloudFly with QlikViewQlikView can be used both across different departments and at enterprise level. It helps organisations/users to do deep data discovery and analysis in order to get deep insight and uncover useful information to make better decisions and take good action.,It surfaces both associated information one needs and also those not needed thus providing a complete view for analysis e.g. total credit exposure, cross/up sell, market basket analysis, etc. Good in helping one understand what one doesn't know in terms of knowledge surfaced from data discovery e.g. money laundering patterns, purchasing behaviours, etc. A strong QlikView developer can 'cut and slice' data very quickly to produce any combination of data to produce required output e.g. set analysis. QlikView by itself or with Qlik NPrinting can produce nicely formatted reports. Fast and agile in analysis. Has QlikView Reports (but not integrated to Qlik NPrinting),Improve on how data model can be built more visually appealing and friendlier. Ability to create master items like in its sister software Qlik Sense. More and ready collections of sexy visual objects. Cognitive intelligence to recommend charts. More certified extensions. QlikView Reports can be integrated to work with Qlik NPrinting.,9,8,7QlikView Review: Quick GlanceWe are a service based organization and we implement solutions for our clients. 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,7,8almost easy way to get in BI in your companyWe implemented QlikView as a "soft" BI system, in the beginning in our IT and KPI department, and then in our production and cost analysis departments. We carry out dashboards and tables to present the data as the department managers need it for daily decisions.,Easy access to any database, you need just a valid credential. Heavy interaction with Excel, this is a must for users and to solve basic issues. The system evolves according to the user's capacity.,In the beginning you need to involve the user, the first impact is friendly but the immediate results are somewhat trivial. When you understand the potential of the system you need to QlikView experts for more complex processing. If you connect a complex database such as a company ERP solution (you can easy do it), you need to know the database structure to find data.,8,8,8QlikView is a beast but great at slicing and dicing data!QlikView is used across our whole organization. In the marketing department we use it for Business Intelligence to view margin, cost, categories, etc. It gives us really granular info about our skus and sales. I personally use it to decide which products to promote in marketing campaigns based on margin and bestsellers. We've also needed to understand the cost of an item in order to decide on promotions.,I love how you can slice and dice data to get the answers you need about your skus and sales. QlikView gives me more detail than Google Analytics about how my categories are performing. Our BI team is able to use QlikView to answer almost any question I have about what's happening on our website. They can set up bookmarks of commonly used searches that I need to make it quicker for me to find the data I need.,QlikView is not intuitive for the average user. You definitely need a BI team to set it up and help you use it, as a marketer. Our instance of QlikView does not provide cost data. I'm given the information I need but I have to do some math in order to come up with the cost we're selling a product for. This may be because our BI team hasn't set it up that way. You have to remember to use QlikViews navigation functions and not your browsers. And when I click from one tab to another, I lose my settings and have to start over. I'm a casual user of QlikView and maybe if I were an actual BI team member, I would have the knowledge to get around these obstacles.,8,MicroStrategy Analytics,5,8,5QlikView Positive ReviewWe are using QlikView as part of the reporting strategy at the university. Dashboards are being developed for different entities within the university and each entity is using it for its own purpose. We created dashboards to reflect the students' status and behavior, the status of the IT ticketing system and the status of the financial situation. The plan is for us to use QlikView now with the new data warehouse we're building to be able to report on the whole situation of the university from one source.,Fast applying changes to the filters Easy to deploy and needs minimal operation time It connects to all data sources we needed The online community is very helpful and it has a lot of data already,The Select Tables form needs major renovations Still has stability issues where it crashes frequently,8,,10,QlikView is used by around 150 users across the university with half of them coming from the medical center. All other departments are using QlikView for one dashboard or another.,10,6,9,50,2,Vendor implemented,9,9,10Why QlikView? - ReviewQlikView is used by the organization and addresses many points specially within Finance Dept. Used for reports, associations in the data, and the manageability it offers,Graphics-enabled presentations, graphic manipulation Highly interactive applications, dashboards and reports. Extracts data from sources such as Oracle, SAP, Salesforce, SQL Server and Excel It's intuitive, fast, simple and easy to use In essence QlikView helps users understand consolidating complex data, simplifying data visualization, and providing real-time access to analytics.,Business intelligence can create QlikView extensions, design business apps, and manage data definitions, this needs to be simplified and a bit more accessible. Lack of single, easy manageable and scalable security model limits areas of applicability for QlikView. Currently, in order to manage user access rights one should set them up in various places.,9,,9,9Pretty @#$% AwesomeWe use QlikView to produce a variety of dashboards for the board of trustees, the superintendent, department chiefs and executive management, and employees of certain other departments to assist in monitoring KPIs and other important data quickly, easily, and in ways that have often been difficult or impossible to see before the implementation of QlikView.,QlikView, because of the way it stores everything in RAM, is extremely fast. QlikView allows you to explore relationships between data elements that might otherwise be overlooked. It has a very sophisticated, robust programming "language" and allows for virtually unlimited customization.,While powerful, the syntax of the commands, particularly with respect to dollar-sign expansion and set analysis, can be exceedingly arcane. I can't even remember right off hand how many different duties the dollar-sign is involved in, but it seems like they could have figured out a way to make it a little less confusing. On the other hand, mastery of set analysis, advanced aggregation, and dollar-sign expansion is what separates the men from the boys. I'd personally like to see a wider variety of built-in chart types.,8,9,8Qlikview reviewWe use QV to as our visual analytics platform for workforce analytics.

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!

We search geographical data when we do marketing analysis; it comes from the customer; users, searching the web; field trip and transportation data. So we connect multiple data points, some of them not so reliable, and try to bring back a trend variation from the study and for the campaign to be implemented. The trends could be for anything: store's marketing, products sales or demand of services. In this case, we merge the information in order to have compatible data to work with, in real time and from different sources. The software allows us to handle different sources of data in just one software, and to handle and advance transformation in trends for further use.

QlikView can report from many data sources. It is also possible to report from data generated by a program that loads the information contained in the your non-standard data to a form it does handle, such as Microsoft SQL server. Although we have QlikView pull its data once a day, it is possible to have it collect the data more frequently. This could give it more real-time data collection.

Because qlikview acts more similar to a SQL database than spreadsheet/Excel software, it is great and adding new data sources and updating data from varied data sources such as OBDC-compliant databases, CSV, and Excel files. It can also connect to other software via export or OBDC connection. The script file allows data cleaning and ETL all in one location and across the entire data field.
