What do you like best?

Qlik Sense is an excellent option because it has been in the BI business for a long time, nevertheless, it continues to evolve according to actual trends. Always focusing on the user and business needs, Qlik continues to evolve each year taking into account this needs and technology evolution. No matter how years passes Qlik is always in a good position in the Gartner Quadrant. In Qlik World we learnt how Qlik is taking cloud and artificial intelligence as a priority, over the past years this two concepts have gained position in IT business. Qlik has been working with both concepts over the past few years and they have shown a constant and positive evolution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the disadvantages that Qlik Sense may have is the limitation on the creation of visualizations. It's not much a limitation since we have the option of creating extensions or mashups. However, this creation implies learning a new code language and this activity can be time consuming. Remembering Qlikview days the visualization creation was a little bit more flexible on the native menu of the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Merging two different data sources. Qlik Sense is quite flexible when it comes on data inputs and data changes to merge different sources that doesn't speak the same language and sometimes requieres some data transformation. The flexibility of Qlikview can be quite useful when it comes to the creation of new business rules or changing the previous business rules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qlik gives me the ability to manipulate my data fairly easily. Once you learn the ins and outs of the load script, scripting is very powerful.

Qlik also has a really helpful and responsive support community. You can post questions and the community usually answers within a few hours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Qlik Sense feels like it's still a work in progress because bugs are frequent and rather annoying. Every month or two, something that was previously working just stops, and I assume that this is due to inadequately-tested code pushes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Qlik Sense for data analytics. (Go figure!) Before we adopted Qlik a few years ago, our primary source for generating data insights was Excel, so Qlik was a huge step up for us. Qlik has given us the ability to connect our reports directly to our database and refresh them on regular intervals. It's super easy to create a wide variety of charts to generate insights.

And the alternatives prebuilded in the platform, is helping us to bring value to the key users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are few talent in the market, so is necessary have partners to develop this projects. To evolve, will be nice if create more training material, to develp the internal skills. so in terms of the future implementations and creating a bigger internal offer, we need to create an internal knowledge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Evaluate clearly the alternatives, and take your decition in terms of the roadmap the brand is creating for us like users. And the other point to take care, is the number of users that you really need and what you will buy, because you can't decrease the licenses number. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

offering to our operational teams, the opportunity to have reports, interactions and knowledge from our data, to take decitions based on real time information. Evolving to a data driven model and developing the mindset to generate powerfull questions from the market experts. The other big change, is transfering to the business the selfservice platforms, and act in their own time frame. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Qlik Sense has great and very verbose documentation as well as a vibrant user community.

What do you like best?

It's quick and easy to stand up an application in Qlik Sense, and there are a number of interactive ways to share widgets with my team and allow for my team to edit and create visualizations of their own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As a user who started out in QlikView - Qlik Sense is a little too streamlined for some of our "power users". The broader organization and senior leadership team at our company love Qlik Sense, largely due to the simplicity, but a few of the heavily analytical users need more customization options to be available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend a cost/benefit analysis, which in our case showed Qlik to easily be the best offering for the cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefit for us is the ease with which we can share insights across the company. We've been able to create sheets that cleanly display a variety of KPIs for each of our internal teams and drive change within our organization based on these insights. It's been great for us to have consistency across our organizational KPIs with Qlik Sense. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The augmented intelligence capabilities that have been integrated into the cognitive engine make the user experience very intuitive and easy to use. In the latest updates, they have integrated very useful capabilities to intelligent visualizations as well as advanced analytics capabilities, which allows users to understand and represent information in an intelligent and easy way. Without a doubt, Qlik Sense is a next-generation BI platform that helps organizations in data literacy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really do not find any disadvantage when integrating Qlik Sense in organizations, on the contrary I think that with Qlik Sense they can obtain great benefits to obtain competitive advantages against their main competitors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend organizations to implement the Qlik Sense platform as they will be able to develop projects with short implementation times and offer users information with data generated in dashboards with dynamic and interactive visualizations that allow them to discover what is happening with their information. In addition to having all the augmented analytical capabilities that the generation of knowledge through natural language offers to business users, which facilitates the creation of content and the understanding of data in an agile way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Qlik Sense has allowed us to integrate information from various data sources such as netsuit, access, and flat files to develop a single data model that feeds different financial dashboards that allows the CFO and CEO to understand the data in a simple way as well as the availability of consulting them from any mobile device. With the integration of Qlik Sense, it is now faster to identify accounts receivable and obtain a return on investment in a shorter time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense is not only a BI software, it's a platform that enables your business. I love the flexibility Qlik Sense brings to the table, you can make beautiful dashboards and engaging KPI's but also you can go beyond the software, embedding charts and objects almost anywhere you need to. It's easy to use and it's constantly updating with new and better capabilities, as a developer I particulary love that you don't need a third party software to manage the data, it comes with it's own ETL so you can work the entire process in a single software! Managing QMC is also easy and complex at the same time. So for me as a developer it's the right balance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I've been working with Qlik for a long time now, so coming from Qlikview I sometimes find myself wanting to do things Qlik Sense can't do naturally, you will need third party extensions to achieve requeriments that Qlikview could do with ease. This is becoming less of a problem with every new version of Qlik Sense though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been solving all sorts of problems, right now I've been building financial dashboards from a Sugar Company in Mexico, the way Qlik Sense can manage and show their data it's not only beatiful and fast, but also practical when it comes to make decisions. Using KPIs to know how products are doing in the market, clearly noticing how the actual pandemic is affecting their buisiness, wich i realized has become a crucial analysis for Companies around the globe. Socially, Qlik Sense could help buisneses make adjustments in their proceses so there is no consecuenses for workers and the general economy of a city and even that of a country.

What do you like best?

The self-completion of the data, the analysis and the correlation between them facilitates the work of beginners. After that it is easy to see the automatic script created by Qlik to add the indexed data. the applications that display the standardized data are the great differential. They are easy to do on the qlik sense desktop and can be exported to qlik sense enterprise. Constant updates of visualization packages make it easier to improve previously created apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Connections to relational databases can be difficult for beginners. Script errors when detected by the application within an SQL command do not clearly state where the error is. In consultation with the QLIK community forums, we sometimes get the answers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in a government environmental organization, which has systems and a large volume of structured data. With QLIK we can locate enterprises and individuals that are out of the average and standing out in the database. Thus, we can detect illicit businesses and intensify environmental inspections.

Lo que más me gusta de Qlik Sense es su potencia en el manejo de los datos, que permite construir un ETL de principio a fin y que tiene una interfaz de usuario amigable para posibilitar desarrollos Self Service. También la posibilidad de contectarse a diversas fuentes de datos. La consola de administración me parece mucho mejor que la de QlikView. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Hay varias desventajas al utilizar Qlik Sense respecto de QlikView ya que se apunta a un mercado distinto. A veces necesito rebuscármelas para lograr lo que lograba en la anterior herramienta pero en cada nueva versión Qlik Sense incorpora nuevas funcionalidades que mitigan este problema. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En los distintos clientes en los que estuve logró resolver la necesidad del usuario de poder realizar sus propios tableros a partir de un modelo de datos previamente armado. Hoy en día a muchos clientes les interesa poder investigar y crear sus visualizaciones por su cuenta Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qlik Sense can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. There are very intuitive wizards that helps you import and transform your data. Along with the drag and drop nature of the visualizations, you can have a decent looking dashboard up in a matter of minutes.

On the flip side, if you prefer maximum control of your data, you have the ability to write the load script on your own. This gives you maximum flexibility on how your data appears, how it's transformed, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A lot of the visualization features have been "streamlined", in that options have been removed for users. While I can understand some of the design decisions, I wish Qlik would make some more customization options available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So far I've used Sense in the medical, financial, manufacturing, and government sectors. Some questions I've answered with the software include "What are our FPE and MU numbers for each location?" and "Can we detect unpaid taxes based on scraping sites like Airbnb?". With the amount of connectors, extensions, and the extensive API, there's bound to be a solution you can come up with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Qlik has a simple data modeling. It is very easy but with potential to make everything. Also complex datamodels.

The Query code is very powerful a little bit like SQL but in some cases much more easier Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Extracting of REST APIs is a bit complicated. Especially when it comes to Data Paging or other requests than GET or POST Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plan your deployment, Plan how your data will grow. Plan enough resources. Qlik is hungry fr RAM. Because this is what it makes so fast and flexible.

Enable users. Self Service is very easy. But you can also do things wrong, so make sure your people know what they are doing.

Thinking about Self-Service do not let Data Governance get out of sight. The more Self Service, the more important.

Force data literacy. Even if your employees are just consumers. They have to know how to read the data / the analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is great for bringing different sources together. Conector to multiple different sources are available. No matter if Postgres, Oracle, MSSQL, MongoDB, XLS, Web, etc. etc.

All sources can be brought together in one data model. They will connect and you can make analytics over all your data. No matter where it comes from. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is super easy to make nice dashboards super quickly. As a Data Scientist I use QlikSense to explain my models and findings to my clients. The responsive and interactive reports helped me to sell a lot of my ideas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In big reports the end-user has a lot of options to analyze the data, which is good. However, sometimes I don't want that the user combines certain options when analyzing the data and sometimes the end-user is overwhelmed by the provided options. So, it would be nice to have features to create "guided" ways to use the reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an modern BI solution that is easy to use and can handle big data, choose QlikSense. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The navigation was not the easiest to handle. I would often get lost when sessions started and I was confused at times on how to enter session if I was not on time.

What do you like best?

Qlik sense associative engine, AI/ML, visualizations Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Having a compiler outside the Qliksense would be helpful, something like having a VS code extension to compile scripts, Debugging is hard on QlikScripts when we have large numbers of scripts to handle, having a tool that is compelling and pointing out the issue ahead of time like a normal development environment would really help. Documentation is very shall need good documentation, most of the documentation will not give the full picture, and to reach out support on trivial things. Inbuilt git support is missing, which really difficult to version control. CI/CD pipeline is missing need to depend on third-party or need to buy additional components, which sometimes not needed on for certain organizations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

yes, recommend the tool, which is very interactive and easy to use, the API is really helpful to create powerful applications Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Debugging is hard on QlikScripts when we have large numbers of scripts to handle, having a tool that is compelling and pointing out the issue ahead of time like a normal development environment would really help.

Integration with the IDE environment would be one of the ways I could suggest an example: VS Code, Atom, etc.

Inbuilt git support is missing, which really difficult to version control. CI/CD pipeline is missing need to depend on third-party or need to buy additional components, which sometimes not needed on for certain organizations.

Documentation is hard to follow.

Qlik support will take some time take a bit of time to respond

Benefits:

We could build the project in a very short time as compare to other products, Qlik upgrades are impressive in recent time, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not many that I can think of, potentially more visualizations out of the box. Saying that, new visualizations are being added frequently and you always have the options of using extensions, many of which are certified by Qlik. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Our customers are using Qlik to pull in and link data sets without the use of any coding. These datasets can be permissioned based on the user's role.

What do you like best?

What I like the most that is more sensible in terms of data management. I also love that I can filter in one page, and that selection remains in the rest of the pages, so I can explore data better.

Another thing I like is its ETL, is very similar to SQL, so it's easier to build your models, and the code it's very self-explanatory.

Also the possibility to create master dimensions, master metrics, and master visualizations, makes it easier to develop dashboards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At first the menu is less intuitive than Tableau and Power BI, but once you understand what metric and dimension are, it's very easy to handle visualizations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to automate dashboards, the Qlik suite is the best because its data handling is the most robust of all.

It also helpful for data governance and data management, providing safe access to data and dashboards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Difficult to choose just one thing, but I suppose I'm old-school so it would be total ETL control over data, which is stock with Qlik. It can connect to every kind of data imaginable. Its ETL is as powerful and flexible as SQL (and is very SQL-like in syntax, lowering the learning curve) plus its has powerful load script library of functions that can accomplish in two or three parameters what would take a stored procedure in SQL. Case in point, FirstSortedValue and AutoNumber, both small but mighty. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Partner support can be disappointing, which is not actually Qlik, but the only thing I dislike about using Qlik Sense. If your company buys through a partner, some are better than others, be thorough in your selection. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give serious consideration to the cloud options where Qlik hosts your data and maintains the platform.

A top tier Qlik support contract is very important, even more so if you host in-house. Don't confuse that support with the "Qlik Community" which is unrivaled in the industry and an excellent resource for new and experienced users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We (in IT) are able to free our data, from spreadsheet hell, to be found and used by our business users, who have eons of combined experience and are able to learn and use Qlik Sense to develop new content - to actually improve sales or reduce returns. "Democratized analytics" might be what that's called, and it brings me joy to see business users applying their expertise using Qlik Sense as a platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
