Overall Satisfaction with QlikView

I work for an MSP. QlikView is used by some of our current clients. My role is to maintain the support and in some cases recommend the product to other clients where possible.
  • Discovery aspect of user visibility of data.
  • Ease of publishing reports to web interface.
  • High speed filtering of wide long data sets.
  • QlikView has some issues with macros. Most of the support calls are issues with macros. Perhaps improve it.
  • Doc Cal licensing encourages development of poorly formed reports that has lots of tabs and chart objects.
  • Old windows style development IDE with poor debugging capabilities.
I have used Microsoft BI, Tableau Desktop and currently playing with SAP BO. Don't get me wrong, QlikView has its place in the SME space but still needs work done on the user interface, licensing and ability to handle macros.
It does not handle macros very well, and when tables merge filtering and creating selections is key to the QlikView experience. There's no way to select that, in the underlying table, Key 1 will not appear.
It published well to the desktop and web with good pdf printing. Users can also login via a portal to access reports or mail out reports.
QlikView is suitable for most BI reporting scenarios but cannot compare to SAP. I will recommend it for SMEs with less than 500 report metrics. Anything above please look for something more enterprise.
