Overall Satisfaction with QlikView

We use QlikView for multiple levels of management reporting in our organization. We decided to use QlikView based on a recommendation from one of our consultants who agreed to implement the software at no charge to us. We currently have C-Level reports being generated daily as well as mid-Level and day-to-day operations reports. We were limited to basic reporting from Salesforce.com, which spurred the need to bring in a more robust reporting package.
  • Many Different Visual Display Options, ie, charts, graphs, data tables
  • Filtering and Manipulation is extremely easy. You can potentially filter or group by any field in your load statement.
  • You can have many iterations of the same data shown on one tab, or have many tabs.
  • Cloning existing tabs or charts is easy and fast
  • A Load Builder (Similar to a query builder) would be a nice feature
  • Provide distribution capability w/in Small Business Server
  • Better Selection box controls. Make it easier to do AND / OR filters without coding.
  • Crystal Reports,SSRS
I have used Crystal Reports and SSRS at previous organizations. They were not considered here at my current company because we do not have any SQL servers housing any data.
We paid for the licenses in full when we acquired the application. Unlike Salesforce.com, there is not recurring license fees. The license fee was a one-time thing which means all we're paying for now and in the future is for support and maintenance. Both of which are not required.
Definitely valuable if you're querying many tables > 4 (Salesforce limitation). We can query and relate many tables in a single load statement
