"Time-saving efficiencies have translated into genuine bottom-line improvements via the reduction in FTE.""Obviously and considering that Qlik Sense is a data visualization application, the most attractive feature is the fast handling of large amounts of data and the attractive visualization of the same.""The most valuable feature is flexibility.""We can easily and quickly deploy new dashboards that reach a wide audience and any changes get reflected almost instantaneously for the users.""Showing a miniature version of the chart if the case chart is bigger than the screen resolution allows us to have full context at all times.""The visualizations are good and keep improving.""It is extremely clean to view, easy to use, and intuitive to develop with. There are a host of online resources to provide assistance to new users.""The flexibility of Qlik Sense and the addition of 3rd party extensions allow us to extend the use of Qlik Sense beyond analytics and bring the platform to the core of our digital workplace, augmenting analytics with workflow, and team collaboration."

Cons
"It was a little bit tedious to install a new release.""There's a lot of redundancy, especially in relation to creating the code.""Implementation is cumbersome and requires expertise.""It is complex for designing RPD, and it can be simpler. Their support can also be improved in terms of response time.""There could be better integration with other solutions, such as Microsoft Office.""It would be better if it had a wide range of visualization options. For example, Microsoft Power BI has an extensive range of visualization options, but it's not available in OBIEE. There are also some conflicts because it's complicated, but the cloud application is easier. They added some features for ETL with the on-premises application, but we need a different or a separate application for ETL in the cloud. In the next release, I would like to have more AI features.""I would like to see Machine Learning included in this solution.""The performance could be better."

More Oracle OBIEE Cons →

"I would like to see Qlik add more DevOps functionality to their product. Currently, we have to turn to 3rd party products to handle things like Source Control, Code Deployment through environments, etc.""Error handling is an area that needs to be improved.""The augmented intelligence features don't work well for the analytical user.""The solution needs to make improvements to the licensing model. They need to make it more affordable at scale, and to make it more affordable for those companies at the low end of the market as well.""My advice to others is to make sure they have a good technical team. We have found that a lot of the consultants go in and out of the business and sometimes you are left alone without assistance.""The security rules should be made easier to use.""They need to make security rules to access applications and data security easier and customizable.""The on-demand report generation button in Qlik Sense currently doesn't work if NPrinting requires Okta verification, which our company uses."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Oracle products are extremely expensive."
  • "This was not an expensive product for us, although the price varies depending on conditions for each company."
  • "The cost of this solution is a little bit high compared with other products like Zoho, so reducing it would make OBIEE more competitive."
  • "It is reasonable, but it depends on how you're going to use it. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
  • "It's comparable to the current technology we're using, Qlik Sense."
  • "Simplifying the data integration process would save our clients considerable costs."
  • "Pricing is an area that could be improved."
  • "This is a very costly product."
  • More Oracle OBIEE Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license."
  • "For on-premise enterprise users, a number of additional features come at a premium cost."

    Overview

    OBIEE is a multifaceted network of tools that can create a more fluid and better-integrated data flow for your business. This service is actually a platform that is made up of six individual elements, rather than a single tool with multiple features. These services include: presentation catalog, BI presentation service, BI scheduler service, BI server service,administration client, and metadata repository.

    The purpose of the OBIEE is to have an entire system for all of your enterprising needs. The various tools within the suite can take your data, organize it, analyze it and then glean the pertinent information from it, sending it on to the relevant parties who can then use it for metrics, pattern analysis, and future projections. The essence of the platform is to integrate your current IT together with their tools in order to give you the overall best return on investment with minimal fiscal obligations.
