Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

We use Qlik Sense across the whole organization. Business Unit like marketing, risk, sales and also top management use it. We've created a lot of qlik sense apps that reads data from our data warehouse and help users and managers to make data discovery and data visualization. It's cool because of dashboards, filters, speed on visualization and stuff like that. We've created apps to visualize company's data and to make better and faster analysis to take better business decisions.
  • in a single app you can have billions of records
  • you can search between every data in your app, and it's really fast
  • dashboards are cool, and it's fantastic the integration between filters and click on dashboards. cool also the "lazo" filter function
  • data load editor allow you to use a lot of functions and methods to analyse your data
  • qlik sense cloud isn't very cool. I need a cloud space where to upload apps and where to get the app to put on sense server
  • data model viewer: you can't really interact with it and modify any foreign key between your dataset
  • full screen function is available only on destkop sense, not when you navigate an app deployed on your sense server (by browser)
easier to use, easier to do analysis with that product. better data integration and coolest dashboards.
data discovery and data visualization. I like the capability to connect to databases and on the server to refresh data. It's remarkable the export function (you can export data from graphics and tables and matrix to pdf, csv file and so on). Be aware putting too much data in your application; the user should be lost!
