What do you like best?

Ease of navigation, responsive UI. USING Qlik is a very pleasant experience as long as you don't try to cram too much into each analytic sheet. It's intentionally designed to look a bit spartan and the colors are muted. This may be a plus or negative depending on your point of view.

What do you dislike?

Qlik tried too hard to be cool. Having a quasi browser-based experience, responsive UI is all wonderful, but the experience is really restrictive as you can't vary the information density of each sheet much, or customize the look and feel. Also, once you get quite a few sheets, the associative experience actually gets annoying as I'm constantly having to select and deselect items as I move from sheet to sheet. Would like to have more control over what selections are carried across sheets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Power BI is advancing by leaps and bounds every month. The list of improvements is impressive. Qlik updates at a much slower pace and doesn't always reflect what's important to the customer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Provide a way to analyze our CRM data that is silky smooth and intuitive for front line managers. We have not succeeded well here because getting people to wrap their minds around the associative nature of Qlik is difficult, and also makes it difficult to say, compare region A with region B on the same sheet without a lot of backend work.

Associative mind set

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense data visualization building gives users tons of insight and connections that they may not have thought about. When you start play and building with knowledge that is presented, it just begs for more.

What do you dislike?

Trending Percentage volume over time in a new way. Instead of using mutiple pie charts, just have a percent scale and line that shows the percent change over time. I guess this would be more of an ability to free form visualiztions without coding, I know it's a tall order. There is so much right about Qlik Sense that it's hard to ask for improvements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Within the University of Miami healthcare system (UHealth), we wanted to see a high level view of our contracting performance. We are currently are utilizing multiple systems of truth. We utilize the Advisory Board's PIC (Payment Integrity Compass) system to model all of our hospital contracts. For professional services, we use Experian's modeling tool. We wanted to consolidate all of these different inputs of expected payment values into one view or report. There is a need to compare expected contractual values with actual over time. It helps our team get better at predicting the future if we continue to monitor and follow. Our hope was that actual values would materialize from our expected values.

In our own wheel house, we were able to identify easy things where a contract was loaded incorrectly. We also began to see how our processes and other team's processes were negatively affecting the bottom line. We were able to provide tips to other teams to help improve their processes.

Powerful and Intuitive Analytics Tool

What do you like best?

I love the fact that linking data connections and creating custom dashboards is so easy. Most analytic software packages take quite a while to figure out, while Qlik Sense took less than 2-3 hours to feel some type of mastery over the dashboard creation.

What do you dislike?

There are still limitations with some of the mapping (i.e. no way to show 'flow' maps between an origin and destination), but overall the software provides ample capability for most graphical/visual needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We looked at many other software packages and Qlik's was the most robust. It's a great all-around analytics and data connection deal than others currently on the market. It doesn't do everything, but for those that need something open ended, consider Qlik.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Qlik Sense helps speed the analytics refresh time. Instead of spending hours manipulating Excel dashboards, with a good data connection you can breeze through reporting updates in no time.

Qlik Sense Data Visualization

Reviewed On

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense is very easy to use for an end user, and is responsive out of the box(works across all screen sizes). Once data is loaded into an app, it is extremely fast in the UI with almost no 'data chug' even with data sets with tens of millions of rows. It is very easy to extend Qlik Sense with custom visualizations or even use the data engine to build your own applications, the API is great. The community is solid and does a good job responding to inquiries in a timely manor

What do you dislike?

The UI can be a bit inflexible, it would be nice to have non-responsive dashboards that allow us to break away from the snap to grid default. Larger sheet canvases would also be great.

The set analysis formula syntax, while powerful, can be difficult to learn for a new user.

I don't think that some of the resource filter options for security rules in the QMC are as well defined as they could be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out Qlik Sense Desktop version, it's free and has almost every feature other than the enterprise administration features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time to value accelerated greatly. We're able to consolidate thousands of reports into meaningful dashboard representations. This allows us to see the entire company from 5000 ft up and drill down to ground level as the situation requires it.

More coding than I thought

What do you like best?

I love the way it looks. It is such a great reporting tool. It has a lot of tools that many higher level officers or anyone that is more visually oriented, might like to see. The sales representatives are very helpful and willing to help you. They also have a lot of samples that you can look and get ideas from.

What do you dislike?

I didn't realize that it is a lot of coding. There are certain things that I want to do and I have an image in my head, but I can't get it to work. It seems like the more data you have in your Excel, the more difficult it is to create a report with. As of now, I can only do basic things. I don't like that I can't show my project to someone else in my office (you can do this with the Cloud version, but our company doesn't allow it due to security reasons).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe that they should create more videos on how to use their tools. They have videos that introduces a lot of business related topics, but not the products itself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to use Qlik to create a more visually pleasant reporting tool that will help us with analysis. We produce a lot of reports but not that many with forecasting.

What do you like best?

The amazing UI - provides a great experience while trying to organize data using dashboards. Having been a regular user for over a year now, the kind of things you can learn just by yourself on the fly is simply amazing. The dashboards also provide great flexibility with a lot of options. Instead of having to pore over millions of data , Qliksense provides a quick and efficient way to scan data immediately and helps businesses take better decisions. Definitely a must to have tool for all kind of Analysts dealing with millions of rows of data as it provides a simple yet powerful way to get business insights.

What do you dislike?

The trial version of the product limits user space to a limited amount. The business version is not that expensive though- so businesses can upgrade to this version if necessary. The tool could be slow if you were to upload huge amount of data at times. Also , calculations within the application can be a little cumbersome at times too , especially with the volume of data to be analyzed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are stepping into Analytics or you are looking to start a career in one, delving into Qliksense and Qlikview would not be a bad idea. Highly recommend being good and competent with MS Excel first so that you have all the basics right. Great way for all businesses - big or small to analyze data quickly and efficiently.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sales Analytics , Labor Hours monitoring , Customer Analytics. Some of the biggest takeaways have been reacting proactively based on the insights that one gathers from the tool . Helps in better decision making for the future as well as helps in accurate budgeting.
