Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

It is being used as a primary business intelligence solution used by several departments and eventually the entire organization. It provides insight and at-a-glance information to make business decisions backed by data.
  • Easy to produce quality visualizations and reporting easily, but it still has the ability to perform more complex functions for more experienced users.
  • Ability to aggregate information from multiple sources of data. It has the ability to perform most extract transform and load (ETL) functions without the need for another product. This information can be stored in a proprietary file format for fast loading and distribution to individual business analysts so everyone is working from the same source of truth.
  • Has a very good community of support. Most questions can be answered through the product forums without the need to contact support.
  • Visualizations have sometimes worked slightly differently between releases requiring the need for some re-work when upgrading. Most of these have been appearance only but are still annoying.
  • Enterprise product should come with the ability to email common reports. People still want/need this but don't need all the functionality of the Nprinting product. Basic email functionality should not need to be a separate purchase. Perhaps give the basic functionality with the product to give people exposure to it would actually increase the take rate on Nprinting.
  • Reduced requests for ad-hoc data. Information is now available in analytic applications and users have the ability to filter and make bookmarks for their most common reporting needs.
  • Increased understanding and exploration of data now that users can go beyond their typical ad-hoc request for information. Users are now asking more questions and exploring the data to find the answers.
  • Identification of data issues and "dirty data" as a result of increased visibility has increased overall data quality.
In several of our analytics, we use the Qlik engine to take data from multiple sources (databases, inline, spreadsheet) and combine it for a single view of the combined data. Typically this would have been done by someone taking the individual pieces of data and combining them individually into Excel or some other reporting tool. When the report needs to be done again then that process would need to be repeated. Now it happens automatically.
The majority of our use cases so far have been centrally deployed analytics, some guided but several giving the users the ability to explore the data using filters and the inherent capability in Qlik Sense. As we have more and more confidence in our different data sets available for use, I see the central function making the data available and business analysts in the organizational units consuming the data to provide insights most meaningful to them.
We have not yet had the opportunity to incorporate Qlik Sense machine learning into our analytics.
At the time we did our evaluation, Qlik Sense beat out the other two products (Tableau and Power BI) for meeting the business requirements from our users. Qlik Sense's ease of use, extensive library of visualizations, strong community presence, and overall pricing made it our primary choice. As mentioned previously, the ability to email a report would have been an additional plus but it wasn't a must-have from a requirements perspective and there is a separate product available if that is a requirement.
Great for aggregating data and producing really good visualizations. Data can be supplied to analysts to build their own analytics and have confidence they are using the same underlying data. It may be less appropriate if there is a lot of complex business logic to be integrated into the application. The Qlik View product is probably more suited to that since it behaves more like a developers tool.
