Qlik Sense Enterprise
Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense
We are one of the biggest telecommunications services providers in Belgium with a total business employee base of around 10K. We are using Qlik Sense for all departments with around 60 Developers and around 700 Consumers to address order-related statistics, purchases, finance, revenue business decision related queries.
One of the examples is, it addresses the entertainment-related statistics on all our service users which helps us in advertisement-related decisions.
- Qlik Insights: Which lets us to have a basic starting point on how we can start visualizing data.
- QVD creation: Due to its RAM based data analysis structure with QVDs which helps us in fast data analysis.
- Extensive Visualization bundle and numerous extensions help in exploring more and more insights in data.
- Visualization such as charts and graph editing experience could be made a bit easy.
- Data manager loads too long for just 2 tables.
- Scripting editor could be more informative when getting issues in data loading.
- Positive: Quick data analysis and business related statistics and analysis as service.
- Positive: Getting some intuitions on our transactional data which has gigs of data loads for every second, it's helping us in making some sharp decisions.
- Negative: Licensing cost and other third party tolls are required for maintenance.
I have worked on IBM Cognos , Power BI for reporting and Dashboards in different organisations.
I can say the Cognos is for standard reporting with inbuilt scheduling and mail delivery services, Power BI is a bit more user friendly unlike Cognos and QlikSense.
I have also worked on Data Integration products like Informatica and Datastage.
There are a huge number of scenarios where Qlik Sense is suited, like for faster data retrieval, engine performance, REST API application for remote services, QVD Data Library for storing and reusing data for different applications.
But the scheduling service does not have the emailing service on its own which could be a great asset for Qlik Sense.
