Product Reviews
QLIKVIEW NPRINTING SVR is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from SQL scripting provides the fastest way to pull data into the system. Valuable Features:SQL scripting, as it provides me the fastest way to pull data into the system, since I’m more on the technical side.Improvements to My Organization:It has made our processes for collecting and presenting data easier, especially with regard to old spreadsheet mentalities.Room for Improvement:Their marketing department is heavy-handed, more so than it really needs to be. This can turn companies off when they get too aggressive. Their pricing structure doesn’t match their aggressiveness either, costing an end user $1500 for a web-based license.Use of Solution:I have been using QlikView for about 11 months.Deployment Issues:Their set criteria is a mystery of legends. I still, after a year, need to pull up a wizard to type up a set expression. It’s not intuitive at all.Technical Support:Technical support is very good, with an exceptional user base. I’m largely self-taught on Qlik because of their community and the breadth of their support on-line.Previous Solutions:I previously used Microsoft BI ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/microsoft-bi ) tools, but as a company we were too far behind the curve to take advantage of their latest technology in the BI space. Upgrading to Office 2016 is not something a Fortune 500 company is going to do overnight.Initial Setup:The desktop component was straightforward. I didn’t set up the server component, so I can’t speak to the publishing.Implementation Team:An in-house team performed the implementation.ROI:No definitive ROI, but an enterprise license would go a long way towards adaptability and acceptance.Other Advice:QlikView and QlikSense are powerful tools that require IT and BI expertise to take full advantage of. True BI utilization is not just dragging fields and creating graphs. It requires deep knowledge of data utilization and visualization. Qlik ( https://cdn1.itcentralstation.com/vendors/logos/x80/qlikview.png?1417094215 ) can provide that, BUT at the cost of additional IT or BI expertise.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There's no need for any other tools, as ETL/scripting and visualisation are built right into one tool. Valuable Features:No need for any other tools, ETL/ scripting and visualisation built right into one tool.Improvements to My Organization:* Ability to monitor progression towards certain deadlines and preset thresholds.* Ability to browse through the data by selections to quickly answer questions.* Easily export to excel or print for external use.Room for Improvement:While Qlik and their products are very intuitive and a pleasure to use as a developer of the dashboards and poweruser, many of my colleagues and stakeholders of information are used to static (paper) reports. This often leads to producing tables and graphs that are 'pinned down' (set analysis) to reduce the flexibility of the representations and the dashboards as a whole. (Qlik presents this as a core strength of their products.)Often this makes the formulas for these expressions and dimensions very complex. Of course you could argue that the users would have to 'mature' to use this new, more flexible, way of information. But it would be a great improvement for the Qlik products if it were able to easily 'lock' graphs without extensive codingDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In-memory allows fast slicing and dicing of data. Valuable Features:* In-memory performance – It allows slicing and dicing of a huge volume of data in the dashboard very fast if designed optimally.* Scripting – It provides a flexible data-preparation layer, along with the ability for data integration from multiple data sources. This enables creating a reporting data model inside QlikView from a transactional system without impacting the performance of the transactional system, if designed correctly.Improvements to My Organization:Overall, it enabled connecting the entire spectrum of data into a single dashboard in:* Finance – connecting sub-ledger txn details all the way to GL* Supply ChainRoom for Improvement:* Self-service capability is very limited, though it has been improved in QlikSense. However, it will require an additional license & server to set it up.* Dashboard capabilities and features are not on par with Tableau ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/tableau ), though the same has been attempted in QlikSense. However, Tableau still has better dashboard features.* Real-time analysis with live connection (direct discovery) is very limited.* The current version is missing a variety of connectors and they need to be procured separately.* Not adaptive to display across various screen resolutionsUse of Solution:I have used this solution for two years.Deployment Issues:Initially, there was an issue with LDAP and SSO integration (a compatibility issue with an earlier version of SiteMinder).Initial setup was non-clustered and we encountered performance issues. It resolved once we moved to better infrastructure in a clustered environment of QlikView.Technical Support:Technical support is very geographically oriented, but isn’t truly 24X7.Initial Setup:Initial setup was not intuitive, but straightforward for a Qlik admin expert.Implementation Team:A vendor team implemented the solution.Other Solutions Considered:I evaluated Tableau. However, we selected Qlikview because:* Tableau’s current recommendation is to build dashboards directly on top of the reporting DB (for example – data mart or consumption layer) to avoid doing complex logic or transformation inside the tool and using a hybrid approach of live connection and extract. Tableau is currently not an extract-heavy tool. However, with the recent HyPer acquisition, we are expecting some changes.* Incremental loading (updates and deletes) inside Tableau is a challenge, which can be achieved very easily in QlikView.* Limitation in Tableau on # of columns and rows in table viewOther Advice:Evaluate visualization tools based on your organization need and appetite to spend on BI technologies overall (DB, etc.)Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We use QlikView to create department dashboards with useful analysis. Valuable Features:* Flexibility* Agile development* Intuitive* Very good performance* Excellent user groupsImprovements to My Organization:We use QlikView to create department dashboards. We can create powerful dashboards with useful analysis in a few days.Room for Improvement:I think its visualization has room for improvement, and I know Qlik Sense has better visualization.Use of Solution:I have used it for two years.Stability Issues:It's difficult to manage big and complex data models, but the reason is that there isn't a semantic layer in Qlikview, but not having a semantic layer is a good point in other aspects, like agile development.Technical Support:Excellent, very good and active community.Previous Solutions:I have used Business Objects and Microstrategy. QlikView is a different tool. It has advantages and disadvantages compared to Business Objects or Microstrategy. The main advantages are flexibility and agile development.Initial Setup:It was straightforward.ROI:We haven't calculated the ROI yet.Cost and Licensing Advice:I think the pricing is really competitive.Other Advice:QlikView is an excellent reporting and data discovery tool. I have used it on a departmental scale, but not on a corporate level so I don't know how it will behave on that level.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product enables top management with better decision making if utilized properly. Valuable Features:* Data discovery* Set analysis* Adhoc reporting ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/reporting-tools )* Drill down options* Flexibility* In-Memory technology* Quick learning curve* Easy to deployImprovements to My Organization:The product enables top management with better decision making if utilized properly.Room for Improvement:QlikView should not loose its original flavour. They should stop trying to emulate other BI products and mould their own product.Use of Solution:I'm using the QlikView local client.Other Advice:It is best suited for Dashboarding, Analysis and Reporting. Do not try to re-implement everything from a previous BI product if you had one. Ensure that the QlikView features & functionality are properly utilized to get the best out of it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Integration with almost all databases is good. Valuable Features:* Ease of use* NPrinting* Visually good diagrams* Integration with almost all databases* Associating linksImprovements to My Organization:We have used this product for a number of different clients, and most of them liked the software and all the rich features it bring with it. The amount of data it displays on the dashboard with such a ease, helps users to always get the results in desirable time limit.Room for Improvement:They are coming up with a lot of improvements. However, the version control is not one of them, and it's not straightforward.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:There have been no stability issues.Scalability Issues:We've had no issues with scaling it for our needs.Other Advice:There is a number of criteria you have to see before you start implementing the product, as you compare Qlikview with other tools such as Tableau. You make sure that you check the cost, ease of use, differnt ways to displaying the information etc.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would never propose QlikView, or any other single tool, as THE definitive data visualization and dashboard tool for every organization, but it did best meet our particular needs. Valuable Features:1. QlikView Scripting - Takes some time to learn, but it is very powerful. Not as a total ETL replacement tool necessarily, but as a supplement to load and join data sources, perform additional transformations, add supplemental inline tables, and even at times, output a final .txt/.csv for consumption by other tools (even Tableau!). I've combined as many as a half dozen data sources including data from multiple SQL Data Marts, Teradata Data Marts,Source System DBs, XLS, CSV, and Google Big Query.2. Design Flexibility - While other products may do drag and drop, ad-hoc reporting analytics ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/reporting-tools ) better. (Including Tableau, and Qlik's new product QlikSense) I've not come across one that better supports the creation of a polished, packaged, custom dashboard, that supports what I'd consider "guided exploration", and best meets the needs of our user base. The customization can be taken even further through in-house built, or borrowed, extensions (e.g. Custom D3 Visualizations).Improvements to My Organization:We have gradually reduced laborious manual reporting in Business Units and "spreadmarts". We now have some executive using QV dashboards in weekly review meetings, in place of spreadsheets and PowerPoints. While it does take some time and IT involvement to initially develop and deploy a solution, the payback is immediate. In one particular case we were able to eliminate a days worth of manual work with a QlikView solution that required a few days of development effort. We also previously had no way for end users to routinely and easily analyze larger (100 Million+ rows) data sets, which now can be done through QlikView.Room for Improvement:No out of the box mapping capabilities (Extensions/Plugins available).No auto-scale for different display resolutions/dimensions, but the trade-off here is the much greater design flexibility than one gets with a Grid based product.Would like to see a few more visualizations available out of the box (e..g Bullet Graph)Very rudimentary report creation and PDF capabilities No scheduling or distribution without Publisher product.Use of Solution:2 1/2 yearsDeployment Issues:None.Stability Issues:None thus far, but have a relatively small scale implementation (30-40 Users to date), on a single server (196GB RAM, 15 Core). Our largest data sets are in the 100-200 Million rows. Dashboards deployed to the server perform very well, but working with data sets that large locally (on QlikView desktop) may start to lag, depending on your hardware. Being a in-memory tool, desktops and laptops should have at least 8GB RAM, though even more is preferable if working with very large data sets.Customer Service:Customer service was/is excellent.Technical Support:Our need for technical support has been minimal, but when needed it has been great. The overall Qlik Community is phenomenal. Many problems can be resolved through the community channel. Users often provide example files one can reference or reverse engineer.Previous Solutions:Previously used an older Domo product (Centerview). The product was no longer supported. It was very flexible, but also very labor intensive. Data had to be fully prepared outside of the tool ,and every interaction had to be defined. Development time was weeks vs days in QlikView.Currently also using Tableau, depending on the particular use case.Initial Setup:Straightforward setup. Connected to Active Directory to manage users.Implementation Team:In-house with some set up assistance provided by the Qlik sales support team.Cost and Licensing Advice:Server is Apprx $35K initial cost, plus 20% annual maintenance/support costUser licenses are $350 or $1500 depending on license type(plus 20% annual maintenance/support). This can get costly if you have a very large user base.Other Solutions Considered:Several. If interested see my post http://www.itcentralstation.com/articles/i-evaluat... ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/articles/i-evaluated-business-objects-tibco-spotfire-tableau-qlikview-sisense-prism-and-pentaho )Other Advice:I would never propose QlikView, or any other single tool, as THE definitive data visualization and dashboard tool for every organization, but it did best meet our particular needs. Organizations with more data-savvy, self-sufficient business users may find a product like Tableau, or Qlik's other product, QlikSense, to be a better option.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
