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.

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

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.

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.

1. Customisable interface

2. Doesn't require much training for basic+ usage

What do you dislike?

It's really easy to go into information-overload with all the options available!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended.

It's a good tool for business users who need to regularly carry out in depth analyses from large data sets.

For us, it's a great way to make our data available to clients in the way they need to see it. And given the generally simple interface, it's easy to get them to use the tool with minimum training.

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

We need to be able to provide in-depth analysis of statistics to some of our clients, and Qlikview enables us to do this quickly, consistently and reliably.

What do you like best?

I like that all our metrics and data can now be found in one place. Qlik does a great job of pulling in reports from other software and displaying it in an easy to use and view format. I also like how secure it is. We deal with secure info and knowing Qlik has a dbl step security measure for us gives me peace of mind.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes loading can take awhile. And if I pull up a report and it's inaccurate I don't have anyway of knowing unless I check the original report. This seldom happens though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great resource for a growing company. It does take some fine tuning and if you're prepared for that and put in the work you'll love it! It's a great software to really make your own.

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

Since our company experienced a 66% growth in one year we needed a one stop shop for the many reports and metrics we have. Without losing data and little effort we were able to convert to this platform. I'm still learning all of the difference features it has like exporting and importing and report guidelines.

What do you like best?

With a couple days of training, I was able to create and modify charts for my company as an admin. Trends in our data can be easily identified, tracked, and reported. Business users in all areas of the company can use this tool.

What do you dislike?

Data is not real-time. We do nightly refreshes. It was difficult for us to determine how to lock down the data that passes from our ERP to QlikView in the nightly refreshes - this process took some effort from our IT team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend doing the training in person if possible. You're going to be able to use this tool properly if you can separate yourself from your normal daily routine long enough to focus on the training.

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

We are able to get traditional Finance data out to the field so they can identify trends and opportunities quickly. Salespeople in the field now have one place to go to check progress against quota, and they don't have to contact Finance.
