The BI Survey 17, conducted by the Business Application Research Center (BARC), is the world’s largest independent survey of BI end users. This is the ninth year Qlik participated in the survey and the Company continued to have a strong showing of customer participation. Of the respondents, Qlik customers value the solutions’ flexible self-service capabilities for a broad range of BI use cases in a single platform leading to consistent, data-driven decision making.
Qlik Sense®, Qlik's next-generation application for self-service business intelligence (BI) and visual analytics, has ranked first in customer and product satisfaction, project success, business value and benefits, recommendation, embedded BI, and performance satisfaction among large international BI vendors in the industry’s largest independent global survey of BI users. Qlik Sense is a leader across 16 categories in the large international BI vendor peer group, including: cloud BI, self-service, vendor support, price-to-value, location intelligence, visual analysis, and innovation. QlikView®, Qlik’s proven, market-leading data discovery solution, is top ranked in the considered for purchase category across all peer group categories – and for the fourth straight year – in the large international BI vendor peer group.
“Qlik Sense is highly rated in terms of providing business benefits and customer and product satisfaction to customers compared to other large international BI vendors, making the vendor and its product set a leading driver of business value,” said Dr. Carsten Bange, founder and CEO of BARC. “The results of the large international vendors peer group show that Qlik Sense has convinced customers by yielding business benefits and delivering fast project implementation cycles. Our research shows that Qlik Sense customers give it very good marks in the large international BI vendors peer group in ‘Innovation’ categories such as cloud BI, mobile BI, and location intelligence.”
In addition to taking top honours among large international BI vendors, Qlik Sense was also recognised as a leader in 12 categories among the self-service reporting-focused products peer group, including: query performance, performance satisfaction, embedded BI, considered for purchase, and business value. Among the data discovery-focused products peer group, Qlik Sense was ranked first in query performance and hailed a leader in nine categories, including: business value, innovation, customer experience, project success, and visual design standards.
