Qlik Sense Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is used across the whole organization to help our manufacturing plants to collect and access data easily and quickly. It also helps automatize a lot of excel reports and save time for people in order to analyze data instead of just preparing it. We now use it for our safety, Quality, Logistic, Production, Sales, Human resources KPIs. This system is a huge help in terms of centralizing a lot of information in a common place.
  • Qlik Sense is very user-friendly and does not request strong coding knowledge. A non-IT person can easily take control and manage this platform with some training. Only SQL basics are enough to start. Plus the drag and drop system to create charts is very intuitive.
  • The Qlik community is huge and when we have a problem that we can't solve it is usually very simple to find the solution online. Plus they have a training program and documentation online which is very helpful and useful.
  • This system allows you to set up your own ETL process and data warehouse if you do not have too much data to handle. The QVD files which are specific to Qlik Sense are very easy to understand and convenient to use.
  • More charts and visuals would be a plus. Also, some objects do not have enough options to color the way we want (filter / button / combo chart for example).
  • Adding the option to have a box text when we hover an object would be great as well.
  • A write-back function integrated into the platform would be a plus. Some company proposes an extension that we have to pay, but if Qlik could offer this for free it would be a great plus.
  • Maybe in the future adding some algorithm and statistics to allow to do some predictive analytic would be a huge plus.

  • Once an app is published and running good, we can quickly see the time we save to analyze data
  • It's hard sometimes to realize the money we save by using this system
  • People start understanding the power of data and asking more questions
We have been using Qlik Sense to create a supply chain app. This one allows us to connect to 3 different systems and gather in a central place a lot of information, very useful for our logistic team. The capability to connect and collect data from multiple sources and then create a model that links all of this information together really made us save time and start making some of our decisions smarter.
So far not much. We do not use Qlik Sense on mobile yet but we plan to do so soon. But we use Qlik Sense on big tvs in our manufacturing plants and the fact it is easy to access from many devices is great.
The fact that Qlik Sense allows the access and the preparation of huge databases open our mind in term of what we can do with data. It is so easy to link information and visualize it that questions come naturally and push us to ask for more and more information. The way this system is designed is easy to understand and really helps thinking differently about how to use data.
We got lucky and started our analytic journey with Qlik directly.The whole organization was using only excel before and some of the IT people knew about QlikView but not doing much with it. We have been trying Power BI but this is really nothing we can compare to Qlik Sense in term of what the product offers as a technical feature and user experience.
Microsoft Office 2016 (discontinued)
Qlik Sense is great for simple set databases analysis. Data which are stored in SQL database and well organized or directly in some excel files. The system allows us to read and cross information in a very easy way which allows the discovery of good insight. Where the system is not the best is if you need to access live data and display changes that occur every minute.

Evaluating Qlik Sense and Competitors

  • Product Usability
Qliksense does not request strong IT knowledge, which is a big plus for an organization to start using BI on a higher level. Also the documentation and the community online is very present and helpful. I personally do not have any IT or coding background and only thanks to online resources, I have been able to deploy and create a lot of helpful apps for business
I will change nothing. Im very glad with my choice and dont think today there is a better product on the market
