We performed a comparison between Google Data Studio and QlikView based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Reporting Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Data Studio integrates seamlessly with other Google products, and we can use it with other APIs if we like."
"On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL."
"Once you open it up, you see everything that you can do."
"It is useful to use a tool like this to have a view of data at a point in time. You can extract and create little data sets that you can store, and then over time, you can have a view for tracking changes. Especially when you work with a relational database or a database that's a production database, the data is dynamic, but if you use QlikView, you can take a snapshot of different datasets. In your own time, you can then get insights and report, build, analyze, and draw whatever you need from the data, which is quite useful."
"We can scale it if we need to."
"You can switch views easily."
"Easy to analyze data by click-through."
"The scalability is there."
"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."
"Sometimes the filters are disappearing, and I'm not sure why this is happening."
"They could improve the speed."
"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."
"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."
"The user interface is old."
"They could improve the update time."
"It is really old. We are moving towards converting everything into a Power BI environment. We want to have a self-service type of BI environment where different levels of users in organizations can log onto a portal and retrieve the data they need or get the necessary insights for decision-making that's important for them or their business unit. They have built a new version of QlikView called QlikSense, which probably competes with newer BI tools, such as Power BI, but they are far behind. That's why we are moving towards a newer tool that's easier to use and has more visualizations to represent the data."
