Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is used by the entire organization. It helps us distribute reporting and analytics to a wide range of end users. We have dedicated developers and then the entire organization can leverage what is built by developers.
  • Responsive to browser size due to JavaScript framework
  • Easy to build tables, charts, graphs
  • Clean, elegant looking visuals
  • Robust scripting language
  • Limited options when adjusting colors of graphs and charts
  • Limited options for adjust[ing] how graphs and charts look or [how] users interact with them
  • If QlikView has 1000 knobs to turn, Qlik Sense has 100. This hurts developers ability to build robust reports and applications
  • Many new features are cloud only
  • No unified hub for View and Sense for on premise solutions

  • Helps get data in front of leaders to make more informed decisions.
Yes, we pull data from three databases, and many other sources to combine it all together. This allows for clean data modeling and we pull in the data we need to allow end users [to] make more informed decisions.
Due to some of the functionality being cloud only, we have suffered some. [For example,] a unified hub would be great to have as an on premise option. Instead we have used resources to build an in-house solution.
We use other options/tools for this type of analysis and insight.
QlikView has many more options for styling within charts and objects - this hurts our ability to style things to our needs within Qlik Sense. Qlik Sense looks more modern, responsive for browser size and visually more appealing.
Works well for quick development of visuals.

Does not work well when styling is required to meet specific requirements.
