Qlik Sense is Powerful to use and Easy to Manage

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-02-12
Review Source: Software Advice

Great tool, easy to get started in your environment with the free trials. Easy to manage with Azure and overall cost effective with a low or high user count. Medium sized it is more costly than other solutions, unless you plan on eventually ramping up to 500+ users and can then leverage the token pricing model.

Pros
Puts self discovery in the hands of the analysts in each Business Unit. Let's us centrally manage data, governance and security with ease.

Cons
I do not like the "token" model for licenses, it is confusing and challenging to stay on top of. Paying for add-on connectors and features like GeoAnalytics and NPrinting is a turnoff, as they are very valuable tools, but should be included in the premium price of Qlik Sense already.

Review Source: Software Advice

I believe the software is good but we already have a data warehouse and Cognos 11 installed. This software is a bit redundant for us.

Pros
I like the flexible licenses as well as the possibilities for a power user. The setup is fairly easy to setup as well.

Cons
Many third-parties, some with expensive pricing. The QMC interface could use some work. The pop-up menus are too small. Set analysis are hard for non-it users to use in a self service environment.

Extremely Powerful and Versatile Software

Review Source: Capterra

Qlik Sense is a very important tool for me. I can quickly upload huge data from various sources. The dashboard is great. You get a lot of information through it. However, I feel that Qlik Sense needs some technical knowledge to understand it completely. If the themes and price is reduced, I will be very happy.

Pros
Qlik Sense is sensational software to deploy confusing data models. When you have lots of data sources and you have to integrate into one data model and get the result. I love the analytics sections in Qlik Sense; it is super interesting and easy to conclude by viewing its analytics. The best thing is that I can easily install it and accumulate my data into it.

Cons
You need to have some technical knowledge about Qlik Sense so you need some training to understand it. I struggle a lot with customization. It is difficult for me to customize as per my convenience. The current themes are very dull. I don't like them. The charts are arranged automatically which little setting options to configure them. According to me, Qlik Sense is expensive software.

Not as great as others, but still mighty.

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Software Advice

The price isn’t bad for this program, however, it’s not quite as feature-rich as it’s competitors. It’s very user-friendly and has a ton of support online, which many of its competitors do not, so there’s that.

Pros
Qlik Sense is very easy to use. When we encountered issues, a quick Google search provided help. As we have used and very much liked QlikView, we had to try this and were certainly not disappointed.

Cons
That being said, Qlik Sense isn’t like the “big boys.” It’s almost there, but not quite. The visualization objects are not as varied as we would have liked, especially when it doesn’t support third-party visualizations. This seems like it should be a standard feature.

There isn't any problem that you can't tackle with QlikSense.

Pros
I like ETL within QlikSense. You don't need additional software or changes in your database or data warehouse to have full control about your data. You can do this ETL process within each app.

Cons
Some connectors are very expensive, for example SAP connector.

I would highly recommend Qlik Sense to any company, regardless of size, because it is so easy to install, deploy, and use, and it's very affordable.

Pros
Easy to install, easy to learn, easy to train users. Deployment of Qlik Sense is very straightforward.

Cons
There's a bit of a learning curve for developers, most noticeably with Set Analysis expressions and data load scripting. This is not a huge hurdle, but it can be frustrating for some people. Luckily, there is a strong user community that is very responsive and willing to teach.

It's a really flexible tool and you can do a lot if you know how. I would highly recommend using a Qlik partner for the implementation as they can provide developers with the experience to set up a really powerful set of dashboards.

Pros
We had some fairly advanced requirements for business dashboards and QlikSense was able to offer the functionality to do all of them. You can connect with a very wide range of systems thanks to brilliant API support. The dashboards look really good and it can be integrated in to other systems.

Cons
It is fairly expensive and for a beginner it can be quite daunting to do anything more advanced. The server software is also fairly resource intensive so hosting it in the cloud can get quite expensive.

Analyze data fast and make decisions quickly with Qlik Sense

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-02-11
Review Source: Capterra

Our goal was to have everyone reviewing business analytics in one spot and making decisions based on explainable data. We were Excel users for analytics at first. It was OK but we couldn't scale. We dabbled with Tableau. It was dreadfully slow and awkward. We demo'ed a couple more software and chose Qlik Sense due its speed, scalability and performance on mobile devices. Within days of using Qlik, our staff was able to convert 10 most used Excel dashboards into excellent dashboards that gave a much clearer perspective into business operations and finance. On modest server, we have been running Qlik Sense to provide enterprise-wide data analytics and our ability of decisioning has improved significantly due to Qlik.

Pros
Speed. Qlik Sense loads data quickly into memory and analysis is stunningly fast. It is very easy to get the information you need quickly and begin to make decisions. Slicing and dicing the data is very fast as well. Having used competing software like Tableau, Qlik Sense is a breath of fresh air. There's no waiting time during analysis and that keeps a person focused on the application and gets the person curious about information being presented.

Cons
The software's support model is horrific. Qlik uses value added resellers (aka VAR) for the most part. Most VARs I have talked to aren't exceptional and provide absolutely no valuable support after selling the software. They basically add zero value. Qlik has no idea what VARs are doing and VARs have no idea what Qlik is trying to tell them. Getting a license key correctly can take a few tries. Great software, horrific delivery. If I were the CEO of Qlik, I'd change the business model and remove VARs altogether and bring sales, marketing and support right into Qlik.
