Overall Satisfaction with QlikView

We are using QlikView as part of the reporting strategy at the university. Dashboards are being developed for different entities within the university and each entity is using it for its own purpose. We created dashboards to reflect the students' status and behavior, the status of the IT ticketing system and the status of the financial situation. The plan is for us to use QlikView now with the new data warehouse we're building to be able to report on the whole situation of the university from one source.
  • Fast applying changes to the filters
  • Easy to deploy and needs minimal operation time
  • It connects to all data sources we needed
  • The online community is very helpful and it has a lot of data already
  • The Select Tables form needs major renovations
  • Still has stability issues where it crashes frequently
I haven't used a different BI solution other than QlikView. This makes me in a position where I'm unable to make a comparison
The cost is very reduced for the university so it won't be a big hassle to renew, plus the majority of the staff already know how to use it and are satisfied.
The cost is usually steep, so I would check about the budget first. QlikView is very helpful for creating dashboards and using it to make decisions; I usually don't recommend people to use it as a simple reporting tool for generating reports.

QlikView Implementation

Once we implemented QlikView, we didn't have to revisit it even though the amount of dashboards has increased

The scripting option gives me options to connect to different databases with ease
