I like the Qlik view program, it has easy to use click and drag functionality and is microsoft compatible which I really like in creating graphs and charts for high level viewing.
QlikView is an excellent tool for data analysis. It has the capabilities to do close to anything that you would need, and the community provides excellent support to quickly answer any questions you may have. There are a few more options that I would like to have built in without the need for additional purchases, but all in all I have been quite happy using this software.
Very intuitive software with great data visualization. The software is very easy to use and customizable. It even allows you to do what if analyses to show impact all around. Qlik is the new wave for increasing data analytics and reporting. It allows the users to get the real story behind the data very quickly to make concrete decisions on the hits and misses within ones industry. I would highly suggest this software and I'm sure many more companies will jump on board after they just get a wiff of what this software can do for the business.
QlikView is very intuitive and easy to learn to use. Selecting/amending search criteria is easy and the response time is quick.
We love this program. It is easy to use both for programmers and the end users. Very fun to work with it. Recommend this program. Great investment.
We recently adopted QlikView as our Business Intelligence application, using it primarily to draw from and combine data from three different databases. It is a very cool product that is great for everything from producing regular standard governance reports to providing a playground for cutting and exploring data every which way. For beginners it is pretty easy to get going with QlikView. There is a 'wizard' approach to connecting to data sources and creating a dashboard (I found this most useful when connecting to Excel files). Learning the basics is remarkably quick and easy. Using an existing dashboard is very intuitive with multiple ways to drill down and filter. As well as the obvious clicking on one or more selections on a list approach to filtering and drilling into data you can click directly on chart elements or items in a chart legend, or click and drag over visual elements to achieve the same result. A range of data and image copy/export options can be added as icons to the menu bars at the top of every object - ideal for quickly dropping tables or charts directly into documents. First appearances may give you the impression that this is a fairly simple and limited piece of software, but don't be deceived. Under the hood there is a huge amount of capability hiding, though beyond the basics there is a steeper learning curve for BI newbies like myself. Support exists through a mix of videos, blogs and forums, and there is a downloadable comprehensive 900 plus page guide. Where data is drawn from a mix of sources QlikView will assume that fields with exactly the same name in different datasources are the same thing, and will create links between the different data tables based on these. This can be great and can save time manually matching fields, but it can also create data 'loops' that require a bit of re-naming in the data load statements to fix. As well as vastly improving our understanding of our business at a reasonable financial cost I have found this to be both an easy way to learn BI basics and a great platform for moving up to a more intermediate level of dashboard creation. If an easy to use geographic location mapping option was included this would be a hard product to fault.
Easy to get started, very intuitive for end users, great data and image output capabilities, simple to use over multiple data sources within one document.
Creating geographic mapping charts is pretty complex unless third-party add-ons are purchased.
Time used: 6-12 months

Great product to load any type of data, and create business intelligence out of it. It takes cvs files, connects to all databases and provides amazing flexibility.
We utilize Qlik for over 300 users. They very much enjoy the experience. Hardware requirements are very large though.
There are lots (and I mean lots) of BI tools of the market but Qlik is one of the best (if not the best). Here is why I think it is the best enterprise BI tool (compared to other enterprise BI tools -- SAP BO, Tableau, SAS, Cognos) - It has its own ETL. Really no other tool is needed to use Qlik View. Easy to extract and transform data before using it in data model. - Super fast -- want to see 100's of millions of rows presented very quickly. Done. - Flexible data modeling. For example, you can achieve huge performance improvements with simple data model changes. - Qlik's secret sauce -- associative model -- quickly and visually see data that is selected, possible, and unrelated. By selecting some data, you can see if all other data is (selected), is possible (associated) or completely unrelated located anywhere in the data model. - Automatically web enabled. - Save space. Compressed data in QVD tables are 10x smaller.
