"You can switch views easily.""QlikView is one of the strongest tools, I would say. Also, it has a very vast capability to process the data""One of the good thing is that you can integrate different data source technologies. So you can model your environment without having any of our views running.""Once you open it up, you see everything that you can do.""QlikView is a scalable solution that multiple users can easily use.""The product’s most valuable feature is its ability to view the entire data available for analysis.""The integration with Salesforce has helped us gain access to crucial sales data in real-time.""It enables us to configure various elements, such as dashboard settings, including factors like color schemes and other customization parameters."

More QlikView Pros →

"Stability and scalability an be improved for a full ten.""When you physically install a product on one machine instead of the cloud, you have a better visibility, best icon quality, etc.. It's more of an issue with how we are adapting to the transition. We are still in the early moments of using this tool, and we need to go deeper to discover some improvements.""The tool should come up with data modeling layer features that are present in other products like Power BI.""There are issues with integration and I encountered limits and warnings, especially with my pivot table size."

More Google Data Studio Cons →

"Sometimes the filters are disappearing, and I'm not sure why this is happening.""QlikView certainly lacks in its ability to share visualizations or create visualizations easily.""They could improve the speed.""The solution should be mobile-responsive. It should also include drag-and-drop and slice-and-dice features.""Sometimes, dealing with complex reports requires more effort, which could be really improved.""The only thing I would improve about it is the fact that it refreshes all the time, and when it does that, it just deletes all the options you had, all the filters that you had selected, so you need to select them from the beginning.""They could improve the update time.""If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlik view's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve."

    Guillermo (Bill) Cabiro
    I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not. Tableau on the other hand is a lot easier to use for developers, analysts or power users who need to connect, manipulate and visualize data rather quickly. While this makes Tableau a better fit for the more analytical crowd, it may not be as appealing or intuitive to the regular or casual business users as QlikView is. Tableau has full pivot, drag & drop and drill down capabilities that are great for developers or power users. They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by the… Read more →
