Qlik Sense Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is being used at our organization as a single self-service business intelligence and reporting solution across all our geographical locations worldwide. Users in each department are served with both standard and customized analytical solutions that are published to their individual streams. Ad-hoc reports are churned out using the NPrinting ad-on of Qlik Sense. Our business analytics and reporting team manage the entire multi-server enterprise Qlik Sense environment from a central location.

Most of our business problems were the availability of accurate data and speedy access to standard reports. Qlik Sense has helped achieve these goals.
  • Intuitive and easy to use dashboards
  • Pixel perfect reports
  • Scalable analytics
  • Centralized management of user access
  • Advanced analytical features require third party extensions
  • Building own extensions is not easy
  • Multi-developer environment is not well supported
  • Version control is missing

We consume data from various sources. Qlik Sense has made this easier by providing most popular connectors out of box. Also the ease of use of ODBC connectivity has made is further easy to expand and add additional sources.
Self-service and guided analytics has always been the main feature of Qlik Sense, and we continue to benefit from them. The impact this has had on our organization is clear when we see extensive use of Qlik Sense and users relying on the solution across the board.
Offering the ability to take analytics to the next level is another positive impact Qlik Sense has had here. Every developer is free to build extensions and use tools such as Python in building extensive machine learning and AI based solutions.
Qlik Sense is a highly robust, flexible and dynamic platform that offers a fast, clean, and responsive analytical solution that is both scalable and adaptable. Both small and large organizations can benefit from Qlik Sense and users will find themselves relying on a stable, functional, and easily maintained enterprise solution.
Qlik Sense offers an end-to-end solution that scales well. I would advise any organization whether small or large to give it a try. The delivery of output is browser-based and so is the development. This makes its platform independent as far as users are concerned, and the result is a seamless and scalable solution. Also advantageous is the ability to develop, control, and maintain from the stage of data ingestion up to the front end. To those companies where one is expected to build their own dashboards on the go, Qlik Sense can have a steep learning curve.
