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.

Still in love, after 12 years of use!
We used QlikView to analyze Sales, and then Profit Margins, and then Excess and Obsolete Inventories, and then transportation costs, and so on and so forth. within 5 years, QlikView become a valuable business tool on every desk in the company.
Since then, the technology world around us had changed a lot - our computers are now using 64-bit operating systems, and a nifty laptop is now more powerful than the most powerful server back in the days. The capabilities of business software had changed as well. Today, QlikView is not a niche tool anymore, it's a flagman tool in the market of Data Discovery (Qlik likes to call the same term Business Discovery). However, the core value remains largely the same:
With QlikView, we can load large amounts of data and build beautiful and insightful visualizations with an unmatched speed. Using the recent advances in technology, we can empower our users to navigate their data in the most liberating and powerful way.
I won't be the first to state that modern companies collect, store and process vast amounts of data. BI tools are trying to help people make sense of that data, and QlikView is by far my favorite tool for this task. We think that we know our business. However, the "million dollar" question is what we don't know about our business? For me and many of my customers, QlikView has become an eye opener, in the way it helped companies realize how much they don't know about their business:
- As a manufacturer, do you know what products are truly profitable and to what extent, considering all the customer programs, allowances, chargebacks etc?
- Do you know what products in your inventory are turning fast and what products are sitting there for years?
- Do you know your true service levels with your customers, and how they are trending in time, and what are the possible reasons might be?
- Do you know if vendor payment terms are consistent across your corporation, or do you lose money on various unfavorable payment terms?
- Do you know how your customers are paying you? Do they comply to your payment terms? Are you paying them chargebacks while they are being late on their commitments?
- Do you know if your employees follow your travel policy, and how much does it cost you when they don't?
All of those questions have one thing in common - if you don't know the answer, you are likely to be wasting money that could be saved.
When things are getting tough, companies tend to resort to layoffs and tough decisions... With the help of QlikView and advanced business analytics, we can find money in a haystack of data and help companies get better without necessarily laying people off. There is a lot of money wasted in the process, and QlikView is an excellent tool that can help us find it, save it and put it back to work.
- QlikView is extremely effective in its ETL capability. In comparison to Tableau and other modern tools, QlikView has the best data loading capabilities, making it extremely easy to load data from multiple disjointed data sources and build a cohesive data model that supports your needs.
- Flexibility. With QlikView, making changes to an existing application is extremely easy. Since we don't need to mess with multi-dimensional cubes, developing and changing data models and visualizations is easy and fast
- Quick learning curve. It's very easy to get educated and become proficient on QlikView. New developers become productive after just a few days, and then continue learning more advanced techniques while already delivering value to their companies.
- Deploying and managing QlikView in a huge environment, with many servers, many locations and many users, can be still challenging. The management tools are very good for managing one or a few servers. When the environment needs to scale up by a lot, the management and monitoring tools may not be as efficient.
- you need to load data from multiple sources
- develop actionable dashboards with information aggregated at multiple levels
- help people focus on issues that matter most
- enable Data Discovery by users, with minimal dependency on IT resources.
QlikView is less recommended when:
- loading high-frequency real-time data for real-time reporting
- When I implemented QlikView as a customer, we generated huge ROI with Excess and Obsolete Inventory analysis. QlikView enabled the kind of analysis and the kind of visibility that was never possible before.
- Implemented in-house
Choosing the Right BI Reporting Platform
- 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.
Also the speed of QlikView is much faster. The amount of data I'm dealing with is close to 100M records. We have one dashboard as large as 2GB fully compressed and is very fast in pulling detailed information.
Choosing a BI reporting platform is a huge decision and will affect the future reporting capabilities of the company. A company rarely sets on one tool and then migrates to another tool. Its a huge effort to do this. With that in mind, getting more companies to choose Qlikview with a low price point will allow the entire Qlikview community to grow as a whole.

QlikView's THE BEST OPPORTUNITY
- Modèle associative : mes monsieur vous ne savais pas à quel point je suis fortement intégrer sur la solution Qlik ainsi que d'autre et je n'ai jamais trouver un outil autre que Qlik qui permet de tel association entre les données, cela ma permis dans 90% des projets de trouver des association cachées entre mes données et ma fait apprendre beaucoup d'information dont je n'ai jamais penser. [Associative Model - I can’t stress enough how strong QlickView integrates with other solutions. It has allowed me in 90% of my projects to find hidden relations between my data and discover information I would have never thought about.]
- La flexibilité de son interface graphique, je suis libre de faire et un intégrer sur mon dashboard tous ce que je veux sans limitation ou des modèles pré-configuré et limité. [The flexibility of its GUI – I can integrate on my dashboard all the data that I want without limitation or pre-configured and/or limited models.]
- La technologie In-memory bien sur avec sa combinaison avec le modèle assiciative [The In-memory technology combined with the with Associative Model]
- QlikView nous permet de s’en-passer d'un outil d'ETL pour construire notre modèle de données (Data Model), il met à notre disposition toute une interface dédiée. [QlikView allows us to pass on the usage of an ETL tool to build our data model (Data Model). It includes a dedicated interface.]
- Possibilité d'intégrer du VB Script et Java Script, c'était un rêve avant pour les data-miner de disposer d'un outil BI puissant dont il peuvent intégrer directement leur algorithme et regarder le résultat directement implémenté dans les graphique (il intégré R déjà) [Ability to integrate and data mine VB Script and Java Script. QlikView can integrate their algorithm and look at the results directly within the graph (it integrated R already)]
- Interface d'ETL plus interactive et flexible [Its ETL interface could be more interactive and flexible]
- Interface de communication directe avec R et SPSS [Its direct communication interface with R and SPSS]
- Plus de connecteurs à disposition des développeurs [More connectors could be made available to developers]
- Pourquoi le QvSource est payant !!!??? [Why is QvSource a paying service!??]
- QlikView Next sera une grande catastrophe s'il n’intègre pas tous les interfaces de QlikView 11 (je crois que c'est déjà le cas !!) [QlikView Next will be a great disaster if it does not include all the interfaces from QlikView 11 (I believe this is already the case!)]
[QlikView can meet all the users’ needs as long as you know how to use it to fully leverage its complete set of features. Don’t hesitate to leverage the Qlik Community to learn the issues that others have faced and how they’ve solved them so that you don’t repeat the same mistakes.]
De trop nombreuses entreprises se trouvent prises en otage de leur environnement en silos qui les empêche d'accéder à leurs données d'une manière à la fois simple et pertinente. Grâce à des connecteurs spécifiques pour certaines des applications et sources de données les plus répandues (SAP, Salesforce.com et Informatica®), QlikView facilite l'accès à vos données métier et à leur analyse. [Too many companies are held hostage by their siloed enviroment, which prevents access to their data in a simple and relevant manner. With specific connectors for some of the most common applications and data sources (including SAP, Informatica and Salesforce.com), QlikView provides easy access to your business data and analysis.]

QlikView - Jive Analytics
- Extremely fast data visualization. We can go from a high level view to the most granular detail in seconds.
- Associative search -- there are no pre-defined drill paths. You can visually explore the data and go anywhere you want. You do not have to drill down...and then back up. It makes the data exploration much easier.
- Very strong data loading capabilities.
- QlikView is really a platform that you can extend. You can incorporate it into web pages, integrate it with the R open source engine, build custom extensions, etc.
- QlikView has a "green, white, grey" color scheme. Green is what I selected, white is what is included in that data set, and grey is what is excluded. It is a powerful visualization tool that can show you what is included as well as what is excluded. For data junkies, it is an excellent tool.
- If you are looking to analyze real-time data, QlikView is probably not the right tool for you. It uses static pre-loaded data, rather than live data from an external data source.
- We can literally do in a few minutes what it would have taken us hours or days to do in the prior Business Objects tool. We can quickly get to detailed information to see what is happening in our community, who the power users are, what they are doing, activity trends, etc. We then use these insights to determine any changes we want to make in our user adoption strategies.
- Our primary use is analyzing millions of rows of social collaboration activity.
- Implemented in-house
- Professional services company
- Jive Software
- We likely will integrate with Active Directory and Google Analytics in the future.
Incredibly fast in-memory model.
- In-memory performance
- Associative model
- Their UI from a development perspective, for developing dashboards.
- A lot of the components that you can place on a dashboard, i.e. filters, sliders etc. are handy
- You can spit out to Excel, PDF.
- Out of the box, the governance and meta data management is not great. You can buy another product for that. Out of the box, you can get yourself in trouble. We have solved for that through business process and workflow.
- They are still a bit tied too Microsoft tools like Internet Explorer. Working on Firefox, Chrome, Safari is not the same experience. We would really like them adapt. For example, when viewing a line graph with multiple points on graph, if you zoom over a point, it will light up the bubble in IE, but we cannot get it to work the same way in other browsers.
- Performance tuning explain plans don’t exist.
- Our ability to do custom Ajax development – we would like to put in a widget, where we can do an uptime call and have nothing else change. No documentation etc.
- Documentation is ok.
- Speed to market is the really big thing. You can attach to multiple data sources quickly and build a consumable model for a dashboard. It doesn’t require IT talent to build. We have built more dashboards and added more users in the last year, then in our entire history. I was at a company of 30k+ employees before, and we didn't have near this level of BI adoption.
- As a result, we are seeing benefits across business function. For example, within sales, our pipeline has much more visibility. It allows for much faster decisions on things like quotas. One of our biggest power users is in sales ops. She feels her dashboards load 10x faster than our previous tool and she can make changes on the fly.
- Data visualization/ reporting for multiple aspects of our operations including sales, marketing, service, procurement, finance and IT.
- Vendor implemented
- In-person training
- Various databases/ data containers including Oracle, SQL Server, Cassandra (which we use for time series event data, monitoring). We do not integrate directly to operational systems, e.g. for finance, CRM, but push data from those enterprise apps into a data layer, so that we're not taxing those operational systems with queries. We have also built a star schema data mart for the cloud.
