Like it’s little brother Qlik Sense, this program works well.

Review Source: Software Advice

We absolutely love the Qlik family of programs. They work well and do as advertised. We had decided to switch to the much-cheaper Qlik Sense but still occasionally use QlikView for the customers we already had in the system.

Pros
While this program takes some time to get used to, once you learn it, it’s a breeze. The ability to manipulate data to make it just as you want is a major plus. Many other programs restrict your ability to show your data in just the way that you want.

Cons
The price can be a bit much. They did listen and thus created Qlik Sense, but at the higher price point, you would expect this program to have the same features as its competitors, but alas, it is still lacking. Not too terribly much, but there are features that it really should have that it does not.

Pros
Cost is low compared to value. Truly connects to any data source. Data governance, security, and user adoption rates couldn't be better. Directly embed into EHR workflows to deliver maximum value to end users. Extremely fast timeline associated with production application development. Ease of use in the context of truly 360 degree data access.

Cons
Skill set of Qlik developers isn't exactly a commodity in today's market. Keeping up with intensely high rates of end user adoption is difficult. Building a team that can meet Sid requirements and business leaders that are able,to take ownership of DQ and data definitions.

I recommend the tool. Friendly user, you can have very good dashboards using only a simple spreadsheet.

Pros
Low cost against BO, Cognos,... You can simple use Tables, databases, web tables and a lot of other kind of connection to use the data.

Cons
It don´t have a flexible map as a standard. You should acquire a "Geo Analysis" add in for a best use.

Pros
QlikView is a very powerful BI tool that's relatively easy to use and is really fast and responsive. It's flexible and very easy to manipulate to produce any sort of result imaginable. I also like how easy it is for the software to gather information from the different softwares we use. This ability to combine data sources helps to create complex reports.

Cons
QlikView uses lots of system resources and tends to impact performance. Though the free version is quite capable and usually enough for most people, upgrading to the paid version is not cheap at all.

Qlikview - Excellent tool for analysing heavy complex data

Used weekly for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2021-05-30
Review Source: Capterra

The overall experience was amazing (now I can say after couple of years :-) ). This was a very useful tool while doing large complex analysis. If as an organization you can afford this software then this is a must have tool.

Pros
The best part is that you can create the query once and use it multiple times (for all recurring tasks). You can customize your data to look more attractive and presentable through Qlikview. It can also be integrated over your existing ERP (e.g. SAP) and you can get the reports automatically from Qlikview.

Cons
The learning curve is definitely a challenge that I faced. The software is slightly complex and being a finance manager (non IT person) it was difficult for me to understand it initially.

Review Source: Software Advice

Business has been able to realise value in having reliable data at their fingertips to make informed business decisions. The ability to highlight any issues has meant that business improvements can be made quickly, thus reducing waste and inefficiencies.

Pros
We use QlikView to pull together a variety of data from multiple sources ranging from system databases to spreadsheets. We are then able to present this in a user friendly way allowing all levels of our business to use the data. We provide dashboards for executive summaries while still allowing operational staff to drill down into the details. Users are able to get up to date data in the way they can use to make informed decisions

Cons
The only thing we haven't been able to do is to generate regular reports and to then distribute them, however we have used another Qlik product (NPrinting) to achieve this.

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. The license costs are not low and in some cases depending on the needs you need to analyze whether it is better to buy Sense or View.

Qlik products are powerful and flexible, great ROI.

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-04-11
Review Source: Software Advice

Remembering that this is a platform, not just a BI tool, there is some back-office IT work required to implement, launch and maintain the software. Once up and running (which was very cost effective to outsource) the maintenance costs were minimal and we never had any problems.

Pros
Everything. This is a well engineered and powerfully designed tool that dominates the ETL and BI Visualization space for those that need both aspects combined into one. A decade of fine tuning make this a great tool for your analytical and data management toolbox.

Cons
The only con here is the cannibalization factor in the release of Qlik Sense, a far better and more modern take on the same tool. The Sense platform is very similar, but more powerful and expandable, and is getting 99.9% of the development resources, making Qlik View static. So while a great tool and still has years of life left, if you are launching new I'd go with Qlik Sense instead.

QlikView - Delivering 'Jaw Drop' business intelligence

Reviewed 2014-01-15
Review Source: Software Advice

Pros
Back when I was a SQL developer, I was told I was to sit in on a demo of a GUI-driven reporting solution I was skeptical of what it would deliver. However, when I saw what the associative engine was doing in filtering data without having to write queries, it was nothing short of a revelation. Building solutions with QlikView is what I wanted to be doing. Since that moment I have been lucky enough to be able to demo QlikView to a large number of people - giving them that same 'Jaw Drop' experience.

Cons
When you have built something in QlikView, you want to share it with everyone. Unfortunately, the licensing model can make this quite expensive quite quickly. However, it is often possible to achieve massive efficiency savings by moving to QlikView, making a quick ROI a possibility.
