The two major barriers for organisations to implement BI have traditionally been accessibility and cost.
Qlikview has flung these barriers wide open.
Accessibility for staff used to be limited, as the IT Department controlled BI – this meant they had access to all the information and would merely pass on static reports to decision makers.
QlikView has empowered the business user by developing business intelligence software that is intuitive to use and allows users to explore their business information in real-time.
Instant results in as little as a few hours or days can help SME organisations make smarter business decisions in times of a slowing economy.
Unlike the vast majority of BI vendors, QlikView now provides their pricing on their public website. This means that organisations are able to compare apples with apples and realistically set and manage their BI budgets.
In its recent report Six Steps to Negotiating a Better BI Deal Forrester calls for buyers to, “Support the BI pricing revolution by demanding greater vendor transparency. Tell your BI vendors, that with everything else being equal, you’ll give preference to the vendors with more transparent pricing policies, such as published and freely available price lists.”
QlikView pricing reflects the fact that all users get a fully functioning QlikView app experience, not just a static view of the data. This allows every person in an organisation to gain the functionality and performance for an experience that promotes frequent, pervasive use.
