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.
"You can switch views easily."
"On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL."
"Easy to analyze data by click-through."
"Once you open it up, you see everything that you can do."
"The scalability is there."
"We can scale it if we need to."
"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."
"The ability to create a real-time data mark, using just one piece of software, is the best feature of this product."
"Spotfire is excellent for scientific applications, especially because of its integration with RNG."
"It’s stable and straightforward."
"This solution allows us to integrate data from across all client departments, for effective reporting via a single dashboard."
"From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic."
"The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it."
"The most valuable features of TIBCO Spotfire are visualization. It's very nice, clear, and, flexible. You can analyze many data types and the user interface is very good."
"The user interface is old."
"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."
"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."
"Sometimes the filters are disappearing, and I'm not sure why this is happening."
"They could improve the speed."
"The handling and consumption of realtime data could be improved."
"We would like to see some improvement in the default properties of the solution, so that there is less need for us to spend our time coding."
"The initial setup can be difficult."
"When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation."
"The initial setup of TIBCO Spotfire is in the middle range of difficulty. The initial setup of Power BI is easier."
"I would like to see the visualization library in this solution expanded, so that I can increase what I can offer to our clients."
"The design of the UI could be improved."
"When you do the data loading, it is slow."
