Qlik Sense Cloud

Overall Satisfaction with Qlik Sense

Qlik is being used as a reporting tool for standard operations metrics. It is also being used as a reporting tool for customers to understand their throughput and overall expected profitability. These reports are then used for internal and external discussions for decision making and benchmarking. All of these are reports are generated internally; customers cannot pull their own information.
  • Very user-friendly dashboard experience.
  • Easy filtering process with the filters remaining on multiple pages.
  • Drill down features on the dashboards are detailed and easy to operate.
  • Exporting functionality needs to be much better. PDF exports do not look aesthetically pleasing.
  • Dashboard design can be complicated with the layout and data architecture.
  • Storyboarding needs to be revamped or adjusted. The concept of “snapshots” doesn’t seem to work and filtering on them keeps turning off.

  • Report out capabilities have been expanded, however, I don’t have much to comment on this end.
Slack, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)
For standard BI/Reporting use, Qlik Sense is a very good tool. For additional forecasting and deep-dive analysis, it is tough to recommend. This could partially be due to the implementation on our end, however, just by looking at the dashboards, it is easy to know that additional work is needed after export. I don’t see many game-changing aspects to this tool.
