Measuring Qlik against its competitors
In the modern economic climate intelligent business is a major component of success, and business intelligence (BI) platforms play a large role in achieving this. Qlik®is one of the most effective business intelligence platforms today, giving users the ability to combine data from applications and present them in a neat, efficient form using tools like QlikView®. But when choosing whether or not to use this platform, most of you have one all-important question: How does it measure up against its competitors?
Genuine BI focus
One of the first things you want from a business intelligence platform is proper focus. In a Forrester Research Inc. study comparing 15 BI platforms Qlik® ranked third overall with a score of 4.2 out of 5. That is 84 per cent! Most of the competitor platforms only managed to score around 3 or slightly higher, which alludes to the fact that Qlik® is exceptionally well-focused when it comes to its purpose and is therefore ranked up there with the very best. The benefit of this for you as a businessperson is the knowledge that you are using a tool which was explicitly designed to do its job effectively.
Businesses often have difficulty handling data because it is presented in a way which does not make sense to everybody. Qlik® provides the solution to this problem through QlikView®. The benefit of using QlikView® is that you only need one capable person or team to code this tool so that it will provide you with all the information you need and to present it in an aesthetically pleasing, informative and functional manner. This negates the need to spend hours puzzling out the information. Instead of wasting time in lengthy meetings with analysts to decipher and disseminate the information, simply opt for QlikView®.
Effective data visualisation placed Qlik® in the shared first position in the Forrester study’s data visualisation category. The main purpose of using a tool like QlikView® is to make your business more intelligent and efficient, with less time wasted on processing and explaining mountains of data. And Qlik® has clearly accomplished that.
