"Dynamic Dashboards for improved Business Intelligence"

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.

"Qlik Sense Review"

What do you like best?

1) Associative data model

2) Quick learning curve for both analysts (report writers) and business users

3) Highly adaptable to various skill levels

What do you dislike?

1) Set analysis is strong but takes time to learn

2) NPrinting could use some enhancements to make it easier to admin (e.g., .xls spreadsheet for both input & output for all items)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Conduct an inventory of your internal reports (author, audience, frequency, etc.) to get an idea of the company's needs and who will actually stand to gain the most when Qlik is up and running. This will inform who needs to be a part of the internal working group and also prioritize what reports get done first.

I also recommend taking an assessment of skill sets for your analysts. Qlik Set Analysis translates very well to those with MS Excel or Access or SQL experience.

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

1) Improved decision making

2) Streamlined antiquated processes,

3) Greatly enhanced the purview of our data from row-level to customer-level & lifecycle views.

"A lot of promise, falls short in many areas"

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.

"Great built-in ETL component and fast response, makes this a great tool."

What do you like best?

Working with several disparate and legacy data sources, we needed a tool that would help us unlock/untrap data and Qlik Sense’s built in ETL tools was the perfect fit. It is easy to add a complete variety of sources from different platforms and blend it all into locally-stored data models that make reloading and manipulating your data incredibly fast. I think the ETL tools completely out-perform established tools like Informatica Cloud in every way, from loading to transforming and even auto-scheduling.

What do you dislike?

There are a few things I disagree with about Qlik, but mainly it is their pricing. The token model is not a good fit for us, we have many dedicated users who need their own token, so I feel like we are over-paying for these users. Also, like any software company out there, the slick selling of products based on future features is sneaky, but seems to be the industry norm. Be sure you are comfortable with their product roadmap before you sign.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with the free trial tool, it is a fully functioning version. You will be amazed.

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

We had lots of trapped data that required software engineers to write custom SQL queries to get at, and thus our access to data was horribly slow. Qlik Sense allowed us the ability to get the data out quick, fast and cheap without revamping our entire legacy database platform. Now we have more data than our entire team could utilize building out reports and dashboards over the next 10 years. Be prepared to add a few analysts to do nothing but build apps and dashboards once you go live! As when users get a taste of what Qlik does on the visualization side, they will keep on asking for more.

"Robust browser-based BI development"

What do you like best?

Browser-based for ease of deployment; broad selection of visualizations; powerful scripting language for data loads; huge selection of data connectors; powerful Set Analysis functions.

What do you dislike?

Security rules can be cumbersome as they require scripting. There is a wizard that will let you set up some basic rules, but once you get into and/or/if scenarios, the rules need to be manually edited and the syntax takes some getting used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the technical resources available via your Sales rep. You do not necessarily need to call tech support for product usage information. Call your sales rep first and see if they can get one of the technical experts in their location to help you with product knowledge.

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

We've deployed applications in a wide variety of areas, from Sales to Farming Production, to our Cooler. Every area has realized some type of process improvement as a result of being able to easily see issues via the visualizations available in Qlik Sense.

"Data Analytics for the Masses"

What do you like best?

The QIX engine, the associative model and the ease of use and small learning curve even for advanced or very advanced topics. Getting started with Qlik Sense is very easy, use Desktop or experience the Qlik Cloud, drop your files or create your connections and you are done! Dashboarding? Covered, high quality PDF reports? Got them. Scalable, robust solution to handle complex formulas and millions of rows? Granted!

What do you dislike?

Lack of Governance. Security rules wizard, the freedom provided to developers via APIs, to be provided to system administrators and platform admins. Bring back the Qlik Deployment Console! It looks like Qlik Sense is on,y focused on developers. Developers don’t always know which data is meaningful or even how to showcase the date to allow business analysts to get the most out of it. Platform administrators are still heavily required for on premise deployments (and hybrid solutions).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Qlik Sense it not QlikView. Even your most experienced QlikView developers can struggle getting accustomed to both or transitioning if that’s the decision. Web developers can do well if they are properly and closely guided by data architects as they can build awesome standalone solutions or fully integrated in whatever web portal you are already using to communicate or share your data and insights.

Script and expressions syntax, variables and even some charts can be reused but be ready to shift to a web developer mindset to fully unleash the potential of Qlik Sense.

The administration is more complex, yet more complete. It allows plenty of integrations with web based and well known security mechanisms such SAML, Okta, cookies or headers. The security roles are extremely granular, but you need to learn how to use them. You need some knowledge on proxies and multi layered deployments which where nit oossible in Qlik.

Make sure Qlik Sense fit your needs. Ask Qlik to engage and do something with your own data, and show how it is done. Engage with their experts to explore the most convenient and performant deployment.

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

Any problem that requires a decision. Making decisions based on data and not by chance or feelings, or using that data to back up your own knowledge is always proven to work. It does not have to be a massive project, it can be a laser focused application for a very specific, actual need, such is the flexibility of Qlik.

"Qlik Sense Data Visualization"

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.

"Dynamic Software with Apps anyone can use"

What do you like best?

How fast it can zoom in and out of data - we deal with millions upon millions of records. The speed at which we can zoom into a single day's individual location punch in by a single officer when the data set contains 1500 officers, for a 24/7 operation, over the course of 5 years, is astounding.

What do you dislike?

Lack of training resources. Myself and our IT administrator took the advanced and administration courses respectively, and there is still a lot we need to learn. There really are no technical resources we can purchase, other than the 3 courses from Qlik Sense, the one official book on the market, or paying for a bevy of consultants.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time with the solutions architect in learning how to deploy your company's data through Qlik Sense. This will tell you whether the software is right for you.

Also, ask about training resources, as we went through trial by fire - I took the advanced course and our IT administrator took the administration course. We felt that the resources provided through the courses were not sufficient, and we purchased the software to be largely self sustaining.

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

We are a large scale security operation and we learned how we lose worked hours by various leave types (sickness, training, union work, bereavement, Vacation, etc.). We see where we are spending our Overtime costs the most, and using percentages to see where the inefficient regional sites are and how best to address the financial implications.

Our current production App for our Operations Team puts together a team structure by Operation Manager to Service Delivery Manager to Officer. It shows all of their locations, shift times, attendance (instances and hours), and a host of other information. With this, we are able to eliminate Excel, Sharepoint, and 1000s of emails to manage this.

"Qlik is fast, fun, and flexible"

What do you like best?

Qlik's fun and easy interface gives our users a sense of excitement in playing with the data. Its ease-of-implementation has allowed our Analytics team to present large quantities of information in ways that have never been viewed in our company at speeds that give us the ability to adjust apps on the fly.

What do you dislike?

We have honestly not found anything that we cannot do within Qlik. If I had to choose something, it might be the limitations of specific Charts in not being able to add more dimensions and measures, but that is just being greedy, picky, and unrealistic.

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

We are creating automatic reports from manually-generated reporting within different departments, and we have given some summary analytics of our memberships and some AMAZING Geo-Analytics mapping apps for targeting and planning purposes.

"Rapid Data Visualization Development Using Qlik Sense"

What do you like best?

1. Rapid development and strong supportive community.

2. You can build a dashboards/reports very fast. Simple reports can be built in matter of minutes! even if your data is scattered between different files or even different platforms (excels, DB, etc.).

3. You can extend the basic platform with Extensions

4. 'QIik Branch' - open source community sharing Widgets and Extensions that you can embed into your installation.

What do you dislike?

1. Set Analysis can become quite complected and not so trivial...

2. While there are some online great training for how to use the basic features, there are only few and very basic for how to build Widgets and extensions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From my experience, most of the though/complicated how-to's I solved with the help of the community. Hence I strongly recommended, in any tool that you are checking validate how large and cooperative is the community.

QIik is using what they call "Associative Model/engine".

While this is, what give QIik one of its benefits and for you (the developer/user) the

ease of rapid building dashboards and reports, make sure you truly understand this

"Associative Model" thing before stepping into the role of building the data model of

the solution. Although it is a no-brainer, some people, due to ease of development

may tempt to skip this phase. Don't do that! Otherwise you are risking some odd

results on your reports in the best case, or misleading reports on the worst case.

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

1. Managed to aggregate data from several separate legacy and cloud systems into one dashboard to validate expected correlation and insights.

2. Managed to save valuable time to managers by building automated quarterly report, which serve them in the business plan meetings with their employees.

"The awesomeness of Qlik Sense!"

What do you like best?

Its Smart Search Feature, Associative Nature, Slight ETL capability, Self-service feature, Reusability of the logic and the Enterprise-level security !!

It has well suited the needs of my Team!

What do you dislike?

The only thing I hate is the time it takes to load the script and open the hub and apps!

Rest , I believe, when you use a BI tool, all the advantages are more important!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it once and you will get addicted to it!

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

We take care of the Workforce Analytics with Qlik Data Visualizations for quantitative, operational and management reporting of HR data at an enterprise scale to leverage business, manage performance, generate insights and drive the evidence-based decision making.

The storytelling feature, interactive nature makes life easier for the business users and further helps in strategic decision-making.

"BI Data Processing and Discovery tool that has become essential in my everyday work"

What do you like best?

Ease of use

Ability to process and present huge volumes of data

Advanced data visualization tools

Very helpful and active community - tons of plug ins, enhancements

In active development, frequent updates that add essential improvements.

Free to use even for commercial (albeit internal) use.

What do you dislike?

Takes a little bit of using to a different way of working with the underlying data - slightly different than spreadsheets "in your face" data.

Lacks the ability to stop the data processing and then apply some filters. When you have a huge set of data and a visualization that shows it all takes to long to process you hit the abort button. But this applies to your ability to filter the data as well. So you can't pick a smaller sample and then run the data processing.

The debug messages when importing the data through the load script are often not very helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try - the desktop version is free to use even for commercial (internal) use. This software may seem to be a little bit daunting at first but you can get used to it quickly. There is a ton of help online.

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

Fast processing of data volumes that far exceed the theoretical and practical applications of traditional spreadsheets.

Filtering that applies to all of the visualisations (unless you specify otherwise)

"Surprisingly easy"

What do you like best?

It was surprisingly easy to create a first dashboards. I had doubts first how Self Service should work for colleagues who don´t have the knowledge of creating formulas by themselves. When I found out about the Qlik Sense Libary everything became clear so that we would really like to proceed with this tool after having used Qlik View for some years. I line very much the new visualizations. Especially the KPI object and the possibility to integrate maps into the application is very helpful. Further to mention is the possibility to integrate external data via the Qlik Data Market which can really lead to new insights.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I would dislike. Qlik Sense is a completely new front end package and Qlik is developing it very quickly. I had the chance to watch the development since they started and now their latest version is in the stage that allows well designed dashboards. I´m looking forward to the new developments for this tool and I´m sure Qlik will surprise us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The question most new customer have is probably if they should buy Qlik View or Qlik Sense. I would says it depends on what you are trying to do. Qlik View is perfect for guided analytics and can bring the focus exactly on the point. Qlik Sense is perfect for Self Service BI where the user has got the possibility to make his own dashboards and views.

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

The big advantage that we see for us is the possibility for self service BI for all users regardless of their skills to write complex formulas. Also the new visualizations allow to make better designs with more information at the same time.

"Qlik Sense - Combining many data sources into one reporting tool"

What do you like best?

The ability to show the end user actionable data through all of our "disconnected" systems.

What do you dislike?

Not much, there is a bit of technical know how needed for data sourcing and "cleansing" but it allows for some pretty neat ways to present data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Create a test environment to see what Qlik can do for you. Once we saw the data in one single location we knew we had picked a software that would help us win.

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

We are identifying what sells and when. We also are able to identify sources of cost. Once the costs are identified we can start tracking changes to see if our action plans are successful.

"Great Data Discovery product "

What do you like best?

QlikSense provide simplified UI to fulfill analysis need. Inside this intuitive user intreface lies very powerful and fast analytic engine. Product is suitable from simple personal needs (example visualize your own training data) to complex enterprise level business needs

What do you dislike?

Right now QlikSense is very new product. They just introduced version 3.1. So the older brother from Qlik family (QlikView) have more flexibility and more possibilities. But this seems to be clear that QlikSense is the future and it develops very rapidly.

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

It's possible to use it everywhere where you find data and you need insight to this data. The main use cases are sales and financial analysis. It's good to built dashboards for managers, analytical views or quite static reports as well.

"Great tool for visualization, success is pending OEM embedding"

What do you like best?

Very straightforward which allowed me to learn pretty significant amount of features in just a few days. Supports more sophisticated analysis with simple and intuitive syntax.

Default visualization library covers most of what you'll need + the examples reports are extremely helpful.

Filters role over between sheets which is super important for us + search functionality is great.

What do you dislike?

Copy pasting of multiple visualizations is not possible (or at least I don't know how to do it).

Can't copy sheets from app to app, even if the field names are the same.

Doesn't allow export from the sharing option, only if you send the actual report.

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

We are looking to OEM a BI solution to help better convey what our company does. It is NOT meant for internal use, only for customer interaction. If this OEM will be successful (still very early stages) this partnership will save us a huge amount of effort & dev resources while presenting our data and analytics in a much more compelling way than now.

"Simply Excellent!!"

What do you like best?

fast analysis, great interactive dashboards, cool maps. I like the capability to connect to databases and on the server to refresh data. i think that at the moment Qlik Sense is the best data visualization and data discovery tool. I also like Qlik Branch, where we've found a lot of cool extensions to use in our dashboards. The top management LOVE Qlik Sense!

What do you dislike?

there is no sharable "repository" on the cloud for the apps; the data load editor is not so smart and easy to use. I still haven't understood how Sense joins multiple datasets. I dislike that sometimes the data load on the servers fail. Alsa it can be a smarter connection editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's easy to setup, easy to use and can also help in daily analysis on (for example) excel spreadsheet: with just few click you can have coll dashboards on your data.

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

We've deployed our dashboards and data discovery solutions for internal users, creating a lot of apps for visualization and discovery of corporate data.

"Bye bye excel, hello custom dashboards!"

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense allows me to self-serve my marketing and sales analytics requests rather than storing our data in a HUGE and clunky spreadsheet. I can create my own data visualization and charts and export them straight to a slide.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the application times out. Sometimes it's hard to find the numbers I'm looking for - I know they're in there somewhere!

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

Qlik Sense allows us to self-serve analytics requests and have data at our fingertips, rather than relying on our analytics team for manual reporting. Now, our analysts spend more time identifying opportunity for improvement rather than reporting on the current state!

"Excellent Tool for any Business"

What do you like best?

I enjoy being able to access my data with minimal effort. I can quickly drill into data that previously took me hours to compile.

What do you dislike?

Some of the customization capabilities are lacking and the need to know coding creates a bit of a barrier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have an employee that is a coder, find a consultant to get you up and running. Do not rush the process when it comes to finding the consultant.

What do you like best?

"Versatile data exploration tool"

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense allows you to integrate multiple data sets and create interactive dashboards that help users get a lot out of the data in one place.

What do you dislike?

There's a bit of a learning curve. Creating a model and chart expressions that are flexible and at the same time ensure data integrity regardless of where users click can take a bit of work.

We are able to quickly slice data in multiple ways, which allows users to ask questions and get answers on the spot. Combining multiple data points helps us get a more complete picture of how are students are doing.

"Qlik Sense provides excellent self-service analytic capabilities"

What do you like best?

User customization based on a managed data set

What do you dislike?

Technical expertise required for implementation

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware of your end-user requirements and expertise. If you want a tightly controlled, centralized BI environment, then QlikView is still a better option. Some organizations like ours have found that a hybrid model works best.

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

"Qliksense is a useful for high level analysis"

What do you like best?

responsiveness and ease of adjusting displays, graphics and other visualizations. My workflow is much improved with this, and I can quickly move between various screens as needed.

What do you dislike?

some issues with exporting tables into excel, difficulty in recreating some pivot tables. Most of these issues should be overcome with experience, and when Qliksense is fully rolled out across all areas of the business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

once properly data mapped, the simple and clean interface is very accessible to even beginning users.

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

product performance, monthly and quarterly performance reviews, year over year analysis. quickly identify key trends and patterns.

"Very fast data visualization tool"

What do you like best?

The fastest way of building reports, data visualizations and data analysis.

The efficient sharing technique.

The on Cloud ability to share with anyone.

Better integration Options

What do you dislike?

The pricing model (free usage is very limited)

Initial difficulty in understanding the architecture(less help available. may be not easily accessible)

The mobile apps are not at all user friendly. language settings cannot be altered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do consider this tool for faster implementation due to cloud based service. Very fast and easy to build data visualizations on web based platform.

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

Right now, trying with free version. Sharing my dashboards with colleagues and management for quick and faster access, analysis etc.

"Amazing tool to handle any kind of data, big or small."

What do you like best?

How fast and responsive it handle large amounts of data.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much about Qliksense that I do not like. About the only thing that I find myself disliking is when I compare it to Qlikview. Qlikview had the dedicated application to create dashboards and I really miss that ability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If using mobile devices is a factor in deciding, Qlik Sense is the way to go. If you don't intend on using mobile devices, Qlikview is where I would go. Qlikview has the ability to be used with mobile devices, but its not as intuitive as Qlik Sense.

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

The main thing we got Qliksense was to help automate our manual reports, and Qliksense has since sped that process up entirely, as well as open up new opportunities for seeing our data in ways we haven't before.

"Good over all, but could be better"

What do you like best?

Flexible, customizable visualizations, I like the product plan over all, Desktop/Enterprise and cloud versions. It has intuitive drag and drop user interface which is very easy to use and build nice graphics in less amount of time.

What do you dislike?

Not very well designed for Big Data. It works well with small data sets. But its very sluggish when it comes to big data

Recommendations to others considering the product

Also explore other products. Detailed analysis of your particular use case is recommended before you choose this product. Tableau is also very good product.

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

We wanted to build a BI Visualization layer on top of our data. Used Qlick Sense.

"Great tool for building dashboards"

What do you like best?

Fully customizable dashboards, with only a bit of querying and transformation experience required. If you do know what you're doing, though (or have someone on staff that does), then you can create some impressive integrations.

What do you dislike?

The UI tends to be slow at times, and bogs down with larger dataset.

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

We're always trying to be fully aware of the lifetime value of our customers. Qlik has allowed us to take that information and democratize it, so to speak, so that all the staff knows the information they need to succeed.

"A BI & DataVisualization tool, really easy and helpful"

What do you like best?

Processing speed of the data, ease of use, appealing graphic appearance, interactive dashboards.

What do you dislike?

The dashboard's positioning grid is too large.

You can not set the chart colors independently.

You can not set the fonts colors independently.

You can not manage\change the fonts (style and size) in the dashboards

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

We replaced and created new dashboards instead of reports that some times are more awkward to use and require more development work.

What do you dislike?

End User licensing agreement in standard Qlick Sense EULA prohibits the use of the tool cor commercial business. This was frustrating to resolve and was overcome through an OEM agreement.

If you want to create a value added service which includes the Qlick Sense dashboards you need to have an OEM agreement.

From my experience with this product, the possibility to script almost everything, doesn't leave me with much to complain about.
