Cost effective solution. Easy to deploy. Speed to market. Data modelling is easier.
Consider future scalability and use cases. There are many analytic solutions these days.
Ease of use and fast implementation.
Visualization tool ie Qlik Sense requires separate license whereas Tableou has it as a standard offering.
Bundle Qlik Sense with Qlikview license .
Apply best of breed solution to specific requirements eg Tableou for rich visualisation. Qlik only came up wiht Qlik Sense much later and require separate license to use.
Good support on technical issues so far.

Overall QlikView has exceeded our expectations. There were a couple bugs discovered early on that Qlik corrected quickly. Their support arm is superb.
No single product will fulfill all your data analytics needs or requirements, but QlikView comes close.
The time it takes to build a new QlikView application from start to finish is minimal and the results are beautiful.
The built-in Script Editor needs a lot of improvement to make it a first-class code editing environment. Many (if not most) of our scripts span several pages ("tabs" in Qlik parlance) and the editing experience is less than ideal, especially when we are used to Visual Studio and SQL Management Studio.
We would not take nearly 2 years trying to decide to purchase Qlik.
We don't utilize any mobil devices as yet and we do not utilitize any cloud infrastructure.
Qlik's technical support is superb, much better than most companies I deal with.

QlikView was easy to install and get setup on an internal server. The software offers so much flexibility in the data it can accept, the calculations it can do, and the visualizations it can create. We have created many useful, powerful analytics tools with this product. Because of its flexibility and power, however, the product sacrifices ease of use. Though there are "wizards", coding in the product's own unique language is required for even simple visualizations. The product lacks usable out-of-the-box mapping capabilities, and even the third-party vendor options are lacking. The product's options to print dashboards are minimal. Qlik Sense Desktop is a very user-friendly tool that offers the same flexible data modeling and visualization options as QlikView. However, the software updates have caused our IT department much frustration due to heavily locked-down computers, and the options to share the applications with others is lacking since the Cloud solution they offer is not HIPPA compliant. We have not found a good place for it in our analytics toolbox.
Evaluate your needs and processes prior to purchasing a dashboarding/analytics tool and then find the product that best fits your needs. If you need mapping capabilities, Qlik, even with its third-party vendors, is not going to do a very good job. If you need to produce dashboards and print the dashboards, that is not going to be easily accomplished.
Qlik products are fun to work with and produce beautiful dashboards that are easy for the end user to navigate and use to analyze even huge complex data sets. Qlik as an organization has been very supportive through our analytics journey. They regularly call to talk about where we are and how Qlik products can help us. They are always available for technical questions and support. The Qlik Community is unbeatable with the amount of knowledge that is shared and the willingness of participants to help each other.
Qlik's programming language is not always intuitive, every element requires coding, producing a geographical map is complicated with an inflexible result, and printing and reporting capabilities require the developer to produce a dashboard and a report.
The vendor did not really give us a realistic picture of the products mapping and reporting/printing capabilities during the purchase and implementation stages.
We would work to better understand our needs and expectations before purchasing a technology solution. We didn't know what our needs were going to be at the time we purchased QlikView. As we figure out what our needs are in more detail, we then have to see if QlikView can be flexed to meet our needs. Sometimes it doesn't or the solution is not simple to implement. One example would be our target developers for the dashboarding product. We didn't know who that was going to be at the time of purchase, but later realized the need for a dashboarding/analytics tool that could be developed by our embedded analysts and shared with their divisions. QlikView was too technical and Qlik Sense didn't have the distribution capabilities. We still haven't come up with a good solution. If we would have known about that need when we made our purchase, we might have been better equipped.
Mapping and printing capabilities are lacking.
I have QlikView contacts that are easily contacted and respond quickly when I have technical or design questions. There have been several instances where I have felt they have bent over backwards to get me an answer and to make sure I was able to continue to use the software and get the most benefit out of it. Most people I have dealt with have been courteous and nice.
I am not on the IT side of the implementation, but from my perspective, the setup of the Qlikview server and the process to prepare it for use went smoothly and quickly.

QlikView offers from one side easily understandable UI for business users and the other side powerful possibilities for the developer. It' easy to start with QlikView and enough possibilities for future needs.
Start with "Proof of Concept" and now already with QlikSense. At the beginning solve some basic needs for business users so that they understand how powerful actually BI and Qlik tools are.
Quite easy to implement
Licencing model for Qlik Publisher
More focus on data quality and data modelling
Qlik have good service partner in Estonia

Very quick implementation and deployment. Very easy to use and powerful.
Consider Qlik BI solution, if you want something to happen in a very short time frame.
Very easy to use and implement.
Give more discount to volume licensing.
Because the license cost is high, I would buy less to start with.
Response is fast. It also has a very big user community to answer questions quickly.

Qlikview is a great BI tool and easy to learn
Demo all related tools before making a decision
The ease of inputting data into the dashboard
So easy to build dashboards that a large amount of governance needs to be put in place in order to keep the environment organized.
Organized Qlikview training so that the quote matches the invoice and we can charge each department separately for their training.
More governance in place before allowing citizen development due to how quickly the growth of dashboards gets and how easily it can get out of control. For example, some dashboards overlap and our company data is still in several different databases.
Support seems to be available at the normal annual cost. Would be nice to get better discounted rates on support though.
The deployment was slow at first but once we setup a few training sessions the deployment really took off.

The product is very strong, and it has been easy to manipulate millions of rows of data. The product's ability to process such enormous amounts of data so quickly is very impressive. It was fairly easy to build connections to existing databases from which to draw data. The software itself is great overall. We chose Qlik Sense based on its simplicity to deploy, app creation, and ease of use. However, there are no books to truly help with coding in the Data Load Editor and a little help from the vendor. We were explicit during negotiations that we were not in a position to pay for consulting services to build apps for us, that we wanted to do it ourselves. I took the more advanced training course from Qlik Sense on building apps, but nothing of it pertained to our business (we do not do sales, we are a security services company). For the cost of training, there is much improvement needed. We have dealt with 3-4 different account managers/sales people, and 4-5 solutions architects. It is difficult to maintain relationships as a result. It is made further difficult that they often speak to our CFO on the other side of the country to increase sales, than myself, the analyst and lead on the project who built the business case to purchase Qlik Sense. Repeatedly we have asked to be put on the information distributions, but it fails to get to us, always going to higher management.
Lay out exactly what you are expecting from them once you purchase the software. Be very explicit who they need to contact from your company, as they will likely go more often to those with financial decision making authority.
The software's scalability, to manipulate millions of rows of data quickly.
The data load editor - Qlik has not been able to give us a direct answer on the programming language.
Change their focus from increasing token sales, to building/maintaining relationship with the actual developers at our company. It would have lead to a much larger sale of tokens if the leads on the project are supported, because usage update will spread like wildfire within the company.
I am unsure, as it was explicitly stated on our end that we wanted development and maintenance to be in-house. I would have pushed for training documentation, as nothing has been given, nor is there really anything out there (I have purchased personally the only book that was available, which only covers basics).
Please refer to previous answers in the survey, as I have covered this already.
It was integrated fairly easily in our organization, there were some issues with deployment. Updating the software is a real pain, because we are unable to test it before updating, and there are no options to revert should an issue arise. When we did update the one time, security rules were wiped by the software, and it was difficult to reinstate them all.

QlikView delivered the ability to deploy data analytics capabilities to the key staff that needed it with little training and quick deployment.
Like all these things, it produces great results but only if there is good data quality.
Ease of use and stylish format.
Screen size does not automatically change when using on a tablet but this does happen if using QlikSense so why the difference?
Provide an easier licence model, found it too complicated.
Enterprise solution deployment rather than buying licences in tranches.
