Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense
We use it across the organization. Primarily we help member health centers better understand the care they are providing to patients and how much their patients use other health care services. We also use it to aggregate data and compare health centers in our region for quality improvement and for strategic planning purposes.
- Load large data sets quickly and easily.
- Allow users to filter and explore data quickly.
- Perform complex calculations.
- Visualize data in charts and graphs.
- More detailed control of the layout of KPIs, charts, and graphs (labels, legends, size of fonts, positioning of titles, etc).
- Better mapping functionality (it doesn't recognize many foreign places; even US towns/cities can be finicky) and more detailed control of mapping features, such as better adaptive sizing of labels as the user zooms in/out.
- Export to Excel of tables loses formatting and totals; export to PDF and image is poor.
- N/A - We are grant-funded and do not measure ROI. Our members are very pleased with Sense from a user satisfaction standpoint.
Sense has the advantage of associating all data in a data model right out of the box; when I evaluated Logi, it did not do so. However, Logi's layout and look and feel was better than Sense's. We selected Sense because we were more interested in rapid development of analytics rather than polished reports.
It's excellent for exploring large data sets with many dimensions because of its associative model. It's excellent for drilling down from a high level, such as from a health system to a specific clinic, then to a single doctor, and then to a single patient. It's also good for analyzing data over time.
