Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

We are currently using Qlik Sense across two departments, IT and Finance. In IT we are using it to watch metrics of an eCommerce site we manage. In the finance dept, they use watch metrics in sales in general. The problems Qlik helped solve was the time it took to create some of the month end reports that finance, some would take weeks, and now with Qlik Sense, the reports are generated within minutes if not seconds.
  • They make it easy to understand, you don't need to be very technical to use it.
  • When you load your data into Qlik Sense you have a chance to make some tweaks to get it to match the model you are trying to achieve.
  • Their section access is also a very nice addition and works to allow access to either whole apps or only certain parts of an app
  • Something we have struggled with is getting Qlik Sense to load the apps into the web frame to be displayed on a regular HTML site.
They allow for any type of data source that I have needed to use. They also have a connection tool that guides you through connecting your data source if you don't know what you're doing.
You can share your app in realtime with a link, and users can interact with the app at the same time and see results each are getting. Users can also save the state of their app and send it off to someone to see. They can also make notes and either make them private or public for anyone who has access to the app.
Loading data fast, being able to drill down through your info and see all the related info along the way.

When we were first getting set everything set up. We had an idea of what we were doing, but the team at Qlik guided us through a few of the things we were unsure of, and even looked at a finished product of ours and offered pointers.
