A great reporting or dwh software

2018-02-02

Integration data and reporting with pixel perfect results.

Pros

Excellent pixel perfect software (unlike Qlik Sense) allows you to create dashboards and advanced reports, the platform is complete and allows you to read data from multiple data sources, the tools provided are the classic tools of reporting software and allows you to customize to the maximum your needs.

Cons

Unlike Qlik Sense it is less optimized for data discovery but it is an excellent software able to create reports and also to populate (using data in memory) a kind of DWH or better internal Datamart containing the data loaded in the file.

Business oriented dashboard and analytics tool

2020-03-04

We use dashboards to visualize complex datasets and drive strategies for corrective actions in the case of interventions in the healthcare sector.

Pros

Fast and in-memory processing, scheduled batch jobs for ETL and an amazingly intuitive interface, what's not to love?

Flexible BI and Datavisualization Software

2019-03-26

We used this software to meet our dashboarding needs that use disparate data sources like SAP, Oracle ERP, Mainframe and Oracle databases.

Pros

We can choose from a range of visualizations to build your dashboards.

Cons

You need to model the data and create the QVD's for variety of the dashboards which involves a lot of scripting.

QlikView Business Intelligence - A Beginners View

2016-10-13

There is a 'wizard' approach to connecting to data sources and creating a dashboard (I found this most useful when connecting to Excel files).

Pros

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.

Cons

Creating geographic mapping charts is pretty complex unless third-party add-ons are purchased.
