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,9,9,10Raymond YounanChoosing the Right BI Reporting Platform2014-06-04T15:58:33.402ZQlikView is our companies go-to reporting solution. 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,1,1,9,8,9,1Michael LamQlikView - Jive Analytics2013-06-27T15:18:28.198ZExtremely 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.,10,9,2,1,Our primary use is analyzing millions of rows of social collaboration activity.,,,Implemented in-house Professional services company,10,Self-taught,It depends on what you are going to do. For the high end users, training would certainly shorten the learning curve.,We did not do any custom coding to the platform. It is all out of the box.,No,7,9,10,10,Jive Software,We likely will integrate with Active Directory and Google Analytics in the future.,Bill ChamberlainClick to view! No waiting in Qlikview.2014-05-20T16:41:26.909ZIt is being used across the entire Company (in a BPO environment) for different customers, mostly for scorecards and finance analysis dashboards.,One of the main strengths I always bring up is the associative technology, which is the Green-Gray-White concept. This Qlikview functionality brings more intuitiveness to the applications in a very natural and efficient way. In-memory technology brings very quick and easy switching between field value selections, since ALL the data is stored in the RAM. Information is already available on click. This is very advantageous particularly for customers not very fond of the usual 'enter parameters, run report and wait 5 mins or so'. Ease of design and development. Qlikview can be as simple as creating reports in Excel, with minimal training, but at the same time seasoned developers can utilize technical and complex functionalities to bring out the most efficient methods and deliver difficult requirements. Availability for a mobile and tablet version of the application without additional development required. Everything is done by the server. Qlikview can be used 'on top' of other BI tools, much like Excel is usually used as the final presentation for reports.,In-memory technology requires large amounts of RAM, and real-time data availability is not possible. Data is only limited to the last reload or refresh of the application. A corporate complaint I always hear: Expensive Licenses. Perhaps this can be remedied by having more variations. Not really a weakness, but for non-technical users looking to develop applications, a level of familiarity of proper data modeling and design techniques are needed to ensure information accuracy. Client is only available for Microsoft Windows systems, so development is only limited to that. Nonetheless the users may access the application using any platform with a web browser.,10,IBM Cognos,Salesforce.com,ServiceNow,MS SharePoint / SQL,Crystal Reports,Microsoft Access,10,8Verified UserIncredibly fast in-memory model.2012-11-13T23:11:12.682ZSelf-service 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.,10,8,200,1.5,Data visualization/ reporting for multiple aspects of our operations including sales, marketing, service, procurement, finance and IT.,,,Vendor implemented,8,In-person training Self-taught,,My team holds training sessions for our internal users every month. 8-10 of our staff attend each month. We have an intro class, and a power user class.,No,7,9,,,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.,,Make sure you do a bake-off to compare Tableau and other best in class systems like Microsoft, PowerPivot. Really understand their license modeling as it’s changed. They didn’t have enterprise licensing model when they started. You really need to think about the taxonomy of your users. For example, power user licenses are different from end-user. You also need to understand concurrency.Verified User
