Qlik Sense Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

We use it for data analytics and insight generation on our data warehouse. The aim is to replace Access & Excel and our daily and repetitive work tasks.
  • Handles a huge amount of data with little effort
  • Is easy to use for the end users
  • Has a good amount of different graphs to select from
  • Fairly easy to develop applications.
  • Set-analysis often becomes very complex. An "Set-analysis Assistant" would be helpful.
  • Graphs, as exported (PNG or JPG) for PP presentations, does not come out well with poor visibility.
  • The is a limited possibility to change color schemas.

No, not really, we work only with data from one source, our data warehouse.
We are not using these features.
No, we have not been using this functionality to any greater extent.
We have managed to replace Access & Excel with PowerPoint with the implementation of QS. For us, this has been a huge time saver and increase in quality.

QS is excellent for generating KPIs, easy for the end-users to access and navigate.
The ability for the user to filter and sort data in every way possible makes it easier to create applications as these need not be so specific in detail.
It is relatively easy to script end create streams/apps thus you can come a long way without being an IT professional :-)
QS is not so good at (automatically) exporting data for other systems to use.
