Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is used across our enterprise to bring together data from disparate databases/applications and provide visualizations. Provides visibility to data that is otherwise hidden.
  • Data Linking - ability to pull data from a wide variety of applications and database is a powerful feature.
  • Charting and visuals - heart of the product is the variety of out of the box visualizations (charts, tables, pivot, etc.) that give developers supported tools to tell department stores.
  • Security - ability to prevent sets of data for view by groups of users is powerful.
  • Email - lack of email functionality for reports and visuals is a miss. NPrinting adds in the functionality - but should be part of the core product. Requires the use of other products like SQL reporting services to accomplish this key business need.
  • Reporting - Visuals are great - the reality is we still need to print or export a visual for users to memorialize data. Lack of ability to produce a report or set one up is a miss.
  • Speed - at times the set up is slow. I believe this is likely more related to the development environment/setup than the product itself.
  • Positive ROI is a single platform to go to and make decisions
  • Positive ROI on bringing together data that required manual manipulation of spreadsheets before.
Tableau and Microsoft business dynamics were initially evaluated.
Qlik Sense is well suited for bringing together different sets of data. A strong point for Qlik Sense is that it allows us to visualize data from different sources. The challenge is on the report/email functions. Qlik Sense does not recognize the need to produce reports or email reports for users. Without this functionality, the heart of our decision-making becomes a challenge right now.
