Is it time to make the switch from QlikView to Qlik Sense?

In 2014 Qlik Sense, the web based sibling to QlikView, was launched. The question is…“should you make the change?” Besides great visuals and self-service, what’s the point of migrating when your QlikView still works? And if you decide to change, how do you convert your current applications? Here we explain why it is worth switching and how to do it.

Why should I change?

Qilk Sense is the modern analytics solution; not only will it make things easier for your employees, it will help you to attract talented new analysts who will help you to make better-informed decisions faster than ever before.

However, it doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. Qlik View remains a great tool and with the Qlik Analytics Modernisation Program you can deploy Qlik Sense on a SaaS platform with unified licensing. This means you can use the same infrastructure for both solutions and access them side by side through a single hub.

AN ATTRACTIVE, INTUITIVE TOOL IS EASIER TO UNDERSTAND
– AND MORE FUN TO USE.

Qlik Sense is the modern business intelligence tool that supports the entire analytics life-cycle. It is attractive, more intuitive, easier to understand and use. Customers who have made the switch from QlikView to Qlik Sense tell us they have seen a marked increase in usage of Business Intelligence within their organisations, helping them to perform better.

  • Qlik Sense can be integrated into your website or intranet, so employees can use the tool in an interface they are familiar with.
  • Qlik Sense is a self-service analytical tool which allows your employees to pull data from multiple sources, create their own reports and look at data from new perspectives.
  • QlikView is an excellent tool for Guided Analytics, while Qlik Sense makes it easier for your employees to explore and analyse the data themselves.
  • Both QlikView and Qlik Sense build on Qlik’s associative engine, which helps you find unexpected relationships in your data. Qlik Sense also provides you with answers to questions you didn’t know you needed to ask.

HOW DO QLIKVIEW AND QLIK SENSE DIFFER?

The most obvious difference between the tools is the responsive interface. From there, it is easy to explore across your data, drill down into the details, compare your findings, or instantly pivot your analysis when new ideas surface. Qlik Sense has many more modern capabilities, such as mobile apps that can operate offline, collaborative storytelling and it uses AI and augmented analytics to offer insights based on context and user intent.

Difference between QlikView and Qlik Sense

THE ANALYTICS MODERNISATION PROGRAM – ALIGN YOUR QLIKVIEW AND QLIK SENSE LICENSING

With aligned licensing you can modernise your analytics at your own pace. You can choose to keep some applications in QlikView and build new ones in Qlik Sense, or you can move from QlikView to Qlik Sense completely. Either way, by aligning your licensing you get to experience the benefits of Qlik Sense in the way that suits your business, without it costing you more.

From QlikView to Qlik Sense

– PARALLEL TOOLS

If you have a complex IT environment with multiple applications, then using double tools may be a smart option. Double licensing solves any licensing issues and means you can maintain your complex solutions in QlikView, while building new applications in Qlik Sense, and migrating simpler ones to it too.

– ONE AT A TIME

Once a company decides it wants to move from QlikView to Qilk Sense most of them choose to move one application at a time. This gives users time to get used to the new interface and a new way of working. While this approach involves less of an upfront investment, it means a longer period of time with double tools. Some businesses actually prefer having the best of both worlds.

– ALL AT ONCE

Taking a Big Bang approach means the entire QlikView platform is migrated to Qlik Sense at the same time. While this is a major project, it is quick and efficient and you won’t be using double tools for long if you don’t want to. Migrating all applications at once also gets everyone kick started on Qlik Sense, but can be a challenge if you are a larger company with a complex solution and multiple users.

The Qlik Analytics Modernization Program will help you modernise your analytics seamlessly.
