Qlik was an great starting point on the company path to meaningful Business Intelligence

2018-01-12

It helped us greatly simplify our monthly management reporting and has been earmarked for a number of Reporting options going forward

Pros

Uptake and feedback has been really good and most if not all users are pleased with the development so far and are looking forward to more applications in the pipeline going forward.

Cons

The data connections out of the box don't contain MDX and SSAS connections which would have been nice.

2020-07-07

The flexibility of Qlik Sense and addition of 3rd party extensions allows us to extend the use of Qlik Sense beyond analytics and bring the platform to the core of our digital workplace, augmenting analytics with workflow, and team collaboration.

Pros

The adoption of Qlik Sense has provided the business with a solid platform to build upon, moving from a silo approach to reporting through a multitude of large, static, cumbersome spreadsheets to an accessible, intuitive, powerful analytics platform capable to dealing with large volumes of data.

Cons

Qlik provide no real split between what features are available in each of the deployment options.

Best in class ETL capabilties combined with great visualizations and ergonomics

2019-12-13

The ability to go back and forth between data sources, data modeling and dashboard within the same interface enables a seamless production of even the most complex KPIs.

Pros

Qlik Sense not only delivers great data visualization features but also offers a comprehensive set of tools which helps to collect data from various sources and deliver insightful dashboards. When it comes to interactivity Qlik Sense set the standard while the competition truly lies behind.

Cons

Automated alerts also would be nice as well as a centralized data management for common dimensions and kpis between apps.

Pros

The ability to integrate data from different sources to provide rich options of graphing the data and drill down analysis of tables.

Great tool for data analysis

2019-05-21

We've used it to replace time consuming Excel reporting freeing up people's time, creating new dashboards for our warehouse, and identifying and digging into data and system issues that have arisen.

Pros

Scripting engine means you can extract from a lot of data sources (Excel, SQL, API, Google Analytics...) and model to whatever your needs are.

Cons

The main thing I have found is that sometimes it can be a big buggy. New features are coming out multiple times a year which is great but sometimes the odd bug creeps in.

ROMARIO GARCIA

Great tool for data analysis

2019-09-05

I really like Qlik Sense, but as a BI tool for analysis, not for reporting/presenting for business users.

Pros

I really liked the automatic capabilities that this tool have: -IQ Insights: it generates automatic relevant insights in the data that you upload to the model.

Cons

I didn't like that it's not so easy to use like other BI tools. Furthermore, it's somehow hard to give the desirable aesthetics/format to your visuals.

Cetralised analytics ready data in a cetralised location

2020-06-22

We have been able to move away from spreadsheet based reports where we had various manipulated versions of the data that were not up to date and took hours to prepare to a centralised reporting platform that is updated on a regular basis ready for the users to use and act on the insights gained.

Pros

Qlik Sense have enabled us to use more of our data and bring the data together in Dashboards that were a very difficult task to achieve in the past using spreadsheets.

Cons

After initial setup we got in creating connections to uncommon databases that proved very difficult to get setup in Qlik.

Cons

full screen function is available only on destkop sense, not when you navigate an app deployed on your sense server (by browser)

The fastest platform for data analytics

2021-02-25

For this, we use various APIs to integrate the platform with others where we extract the information to associate it and thus obtain the necessary reports and graphics.

Pros

We can even automate weekly reports linking the databases with the information source.

Cons

Honestly, I don't see any cons to this platform. It is very robust, secure, simple to use and configure.

Good end user experience, quickly updates with new data

2018-07-12

Ability to show reports to high level execs.

Pros

There are simple options for importing data for the layperson, but there is also the option to directly import using SQL queries.

Cons

"Set analysis" is required to perform anything other than a simple sum or other function. Set analyses are not very straightforward and seem to overcomplicate things.
