QlikView vs Tableau: What are the differences?

Developers describe QlikView as "A Business Intelligence platform for turning data into knowledge". It is a business discovery platform that provides self-service BI for all business users in organizations. With this tool, you can analyze data and use your data discoveries to support decision making. On the other hand, Tableau is detailed as "Tableau helps people see and understand data". Tableau can help anyone see and understand their data. Connect to almost any database, drag and drop to create visualizations, and share with a click.

QlikView and Tableau belong to "Business Intelligence" category of the tech stack.

According to the StackShare community, Tableau has a broader approval, being mentioned in 91 company stacks & 80 developers stacks; compared to QlikView, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

Decisions about QlikView and Tableau

Very easy-to-use UI. Good way to make data available inside the company for analysis.

Has some built-in visualizations and can be easily integrated with other JS visualization libraries such as D3.

Can be embedded into product to provide reporting functions.

Support team are helpful.

The only complain I have is lack of API support. Hard to track changes as codes and automate report deployment.

Power BI is really easy to start with. If you have just several Excel sheets or CSV files, or you build your first automated pipeline, it is actually quite intuitive to build your first reports.

And as we have kept growing, all the additional features and tools were just there within the Azure platform and/or Office 365.

Since we started building Mews, we have already passed several milestones in becoming start up, later also a scale up company and now getting ready to grow even further, and during all these phases Power BI was just the right tool for us.
