Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is used across multiple departments across the whole organisation. [It's used for] Displaying daily performance and used in the analysis marketing campaign performance as well as sales performance. We have created numerous apps covering high-level summary reporting with the ability to create on-demand apps quickly and easily.
  • Handles large data volumes with ease. We currently have apps using 20m+ records.
  • The UI is intuitive and easy to use allowing the rapid development to display results in a coherent way.
  • Massive online community of users willing to help each other.
  • Large number of extensions available to enhance your app.
  • Comparison tool for alternate states is coming and is missing until November 18 release.
  • Although the UI is easy to use and visually pleasing it is a little too locked down at present. Limiting what you can do. This forces you to think in a smarter way when presenting data.
I have used Qlik View for over 3 years before starting to use Qlik Sense and whilst you have so much control on the look and feel of a Qlik View app development time is higher and to get to a quick result in Qlik View takes much more time. Qlik Sense on the other hand enables the user to generate an output in minutes. But you do sacrifice being able to control every tiny aspect of the app.
This seems to be able to connect with ease to most database types. How Qlik Sense handles data from the various sources with comparative ease. Merging the data from different sources is simple and easy as well as the ability to tidy up formatting issues within the data.
Access to apps is easily controlled from with in the management console and this is very intuitive. Once an app is published it is instantly available to users based on the security roles. These are easy to maintain and update. From within an app it is simple to snapshot portions to share with other taking them straight to the view which has been shared.
Analysis of marketing campaign performance and sales performance is quick and slick with Qlik Sense. It is very quick to respond to selection and easy to spot patterns in the data as well as potential trend changes. Linking in profiling data has enabled users to get a very strong view of the performance for different market sectors.
