Product Details

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.

Suitability and filter requirements are met, well suited for guided analytics. Has a good features list (data discovery, advanced reporting).

I do think there is a steep learning curve to the program and that it requires a high level of experience or a data scientist background to fully take advantage and implement dashboards, and users will require ongoing training to maximize ROI, but it is absolutely worth it considering the impact it can make on an organization.

QlikView is very easy to implement. The installation is very straight forward. QlikView has several different data connectors that can connect to different data sources very smoothly. The user interface to build the reports is very easy to understand. This helps to have a smaller learning curve. Something very helpful is that QlikView is a browser application for the end users. So, you don't need to install any applications on the user's computer.

We have many different levels of users across the QlikView app software. We find it is east to understand, easy to search and understand the data that is produced from the queries. The one issue that takes practice is relying on the data's accuracy as its difficult to validate the background information as to where the data originates, and typically requires a conference with the managers of the software itself.

Overall it's a great tool which analyzes data, creates graphs and shows you performances for parameters which you are looking for. It's easy to use. No need to spend time on training. In market a lot of customers and other stakeholders are using this tools, lots of user community. Getting more popular day by day.
Takes a long time if we do modification in report due to large data set. Need to have good modern designing appearance.

QV easily outperforms Excel: it looks better and is easier to use and tailor by business users. QV development is pretty quick once you get the hang of it, so our ability to replace old Excel reports is really impressive to end users. Non-technical people find it to be intuitive and easy to drill down on the data to do their analysis.

Dashboards are easy to use. They are very Excel-like with HTML5 capabilities. Data visualization is good. The system requires minimum training to get user up and running. It just takes one hour to get up and running with building basic dashboards and one all day session for sophisticated dashboard building. It is intuitive. We see this in our user adoption. We went from 6 users/day consuming dashboards to over 200 in 1.5 years. We have 40-50 power users authoring dashboards. They have development licenses. My team in IT used to have to build all dashboards. Our capacity has grown from 3 to 50. Most of these users are analyst types good in Excel. A few power users can write SQL to build QVD models.
