"Free and good for visualilzation "

What do you like best?

It's ability to uncover data pattern/trend and it's allowance for real-time collaboration. Qlikview also allows you to search for the type of data results that you want and it immediately shows the relationships of the data. Pretty great feature when you want to know what you data means or has any hidden pattern that you should know. And It's free for personal use.

What do you dislike?

You need to put some effort in formatting options to make them presentable, unlike Tableau's drag-drop logic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a pretty good software. It's free for personal use so you can try it before making any purchase. You can use it to work offline if you have access to your data. It can uncover the pattern of your data by using search box, which is a really great feature. Formatting options will take some effort as it's not like Tableau where you can drag-drop the graphs as you like.

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

I am using it to show production and manufacturing data. It makes making presentation easy, fast, and easy for management to understand.

"Easy! "

What do you like best?

Qlik applications are easy to use, even for those who don't work with data often. They are also easy to customize if you have the right person designing them. The data can be displayed in the most basic format or it can be extremely visually appealing.

One of the best features is how easily data can be transferred from the applications to Microsoft Excel.

What do you dislike?

Depending on the amount of data in the application and what internet browser you are using, it could be slow. It works best with Google Chrome, from my experience.

If you need to do calculations with the data, you will need to export it into Excel, Google drive, or into another software. I haven't been able to make calculations within Qlik.

Because most people within my company do not know how code is written, there is a team that builds out the data by working with business partners.It would be nice if the build out could be more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will need to make sure that you have someone on the team that is able to write code. It can get tricky if you aren't proficient. You will also need to consider how frequently you need the data refreshed.

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

We are able to make data available to a large audience so they can access the specific metrics they need.This allows business partners to have access to the data that they need without having to work with the mainframe.

"Excellent Intuitive product"

What do you like best?

Allows for providing fast & innovative business intelligence interfaces and solutions, with a vast active, helpful online community. Makes data source knitting and data source discovery an exciting issue. handles very large datasets very well. Free fully functional personal edition makes it easy to get started.

The company Qlik is a very well respected company in the analytical world.

What do you dislike?

Initial steep learning curve to get up to speed. More design guidance to ensure best data modelling practices are being adhered to would be very helpful - I found it a bit live and learn based initially until i found some good guidance notes on their online community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download the fully functional personal edition and see what it can do. Explore the vast and helpful online community.

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

We're a typical media company - until recently each department had a tendency to do a lot of unstandardised ad-hoc data collection and over time data has become very fragmented across many different systems and platforms. QlikView has enabled us to knit these various sources together to create a single customer view that can help drive sales and marketing to better user targeting.

"A great tool to analyze your business"

What do you like best?

the quickness and flexibility of the software allows us to build any report we need and the gives us the ability to drill down into the data to find gaps, strengths and weaknesses.

What do you dislike?

For the main QlickView product it can be confusing sometimes if you don't know what you are doing and have not played around with the software a lot. Adding dimensions, metrics and attributes can be difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

make sure you partner with a good implementation team to help you build out your data models, it is very important that your data is aligned properly and validated thoroughly.

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

QlickView allows us to anaylze our data and points outs gaps in it. We can get dig down very deep to see what is selling and what is not, what is trending and what needs to be pushed more.

"Qlikview feedback"

What do you like best?

Qlikview is an addition to my skill set. I have been extensively working on various other BI Tools like MicroStrategy and Tableau as well. Visualizations are nice and easy. users can quickly get started on the reporting front and build visualizations from data linked to external data sources, enterprise databases and Big data environments.

What do you dislike?

The User Interface experience lacks appealing as compared to other BI Tools. Qlikview is more for a developer role since they build the visualizations and the end users access them with less ability to change or modify them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Qlikview is more useful for power users or developers who built the visualizations and allow end users to access them for analytics. Qlikview is not a self service Business intelligence tool where users can create their own visualizations from scratch.

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

I'm resolving by converting complex data files into appealing visualizations and table reports which is giving a lot of flexibility for end users to understand the data better and get quality inputs for making better business decisions.

"Great potential, lots of support required"

What do you like best?

The potential, capabilities and abilities are great and help in day to day operations for quick access.

What do you dislike?

Requires a large support team to keep the daily apps updated and supported for the team to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

QlikView requires full time dedicated team to support the platform for daily use and updating reports on a daily basis.

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

lack of common technical expertise across the business prevents employees from gaining access to data and information on company software. QlikView allows the company to push this information to the employees that needs it and reduces duplicated reports from being pulled everyday.
