Overall Satisfaction

  • We enjoyed the ability to share a session. This session allowed end-users to share a dashboard, manipulate it, and collaborate on the results in real-time. See more here - http://robertbgoodman.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/real-time-data-collaboration-by-qlikview/
  • Data must be properly structured to function within Qlikview. This applies to any in-memory tool, but it requires more effort than originally anticipated.
  • The ability to analyze trends and statistics on-the-fly makes a big impact to our admissions team. We are to better manage our admissions as a result of these analytics.
Qlikview is a solid tool for any organization looking for a in-memory dashboard tool.

Product Usage

  • Provides in-memory dashboards for admissions data
  • Allows admissions staff to quickly see trends on conversions and demographic dispersion. Then the data can be further sliced by dimensions such as FT/PT, Graduate or Undergraduate, etc.

Evaluation and Selection

Qlikview was purchased to provide an in-memory capability for some of our older Business Objects reports and dashboards.
In this particular case, Qlikview was the incumbent. Tableau is similar and should also be evaluated to see which best meets your organization's needs.

Implementation

Start slowly. Work directly with the business users to validate the data prior to publishing. The tool may expose some interesting data quality problems that should be addressed in the source system(s).
  • Implemented in-house
We chose to implement the solution in-house. If you have a lot of time sensitivity, I would recommend engaging a professional services firm to speed up delivery. Make sure you spend just as much time on structuring your data as you to on the tool!

Training

  • Online training
  • Self-taught
Training was as expected. The demo environments tend to be more fully featured that our own environment, but the training was clear and well delivered.
I would recommend purchasing online training. It was helpful during our implementation and will give your technical staff a steer in the right direction.

Support

We did not use technical support extensively.
