"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:
To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"
On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.
The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.
Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

I was not with the company 5+ years ago when QlikView was implemented, therefore I don't know if we were satisfied with the implementation. I know that we are in the process of switching to QlikSense after an extensive trial period. I am not involved in the implementation of QlikSense either so I don't know how the implementation is going. But obviously my company was please with QlikView enough to trial and eventually purchase QlikSense.

It has taken some time to get used to Qlikview and the backend team behind it. From understanding the new regulations on using less images and also pushing for more tools (such as full compatibility on desktop, laptop, ipad, phone). We were given training on this and have helpful tips to find analytics behind Qlikview but it is very much also a learn as you implement system.

QlikView were here for a few days, and it was up and running. It was very fast. Where it fell short, is they did the implementation in demo mode, and didn't initially work with us to help us scale. For example, should we consider a load balancer and multiple servers?. How much capacity can this environment handle from a data and user perspective. We had to learn on own by trial and error. We are bringing them in to do an architectural assessment, but we have to pay for this. We are now bringing them back in for architectural assessment. It is a fee based engagement.

What is QlikView?

The vendor describes QlikView, Qlik’s classic analytics solution, as a revolution in how organizations use data, with intuitive visual discovery that put business intelligence in the hands of more people than ever. Qlik Sense, the vendor's next-generation analytics platform, supports the full range of modern analytics use cases at enterprise scale by combining the Associative Engine with Cognitive Engine driving augmented intelligence, plus a scalable, governed cloud architecture.

As businesses modernize operational processes including BI, Qlik Sense is provided by the vendor as the way forward. Through the Qlik Analytics Modernization Program, QlikView users can adopt Qlik Sense at their own pace for a small uplift on their annual maintenance rate -- which they state will expand an enterprise's analytic possibilities while reducing the total cost of ownership for BI.
