Overview: Haters are gonna hate. Lovers are gonna love. What about you? Come decide by yourself whether you are a Qlik or a PBI guy/gal. This presentation is intended for anyone who wants to see these two BI tools in action. Carlos and Daniel will show the differences and similarities between QlikView and Power BI. They will perform side-by-side the following:

  • Extract and transform data
  • Create a data model (so to allow cross filtering)
  • Compare features side by side, including hiding/displaying visuals, creating linked objects, role-playing dimensions, what-if scenarios
  • Create a nice dashboard (which tool can actually do it?)

  • Runar Emgård

    Any chance this presentation will be recorded and made available ?

    • Prologika

      Sorry Runar, in-person only but we can share the slides at atlantabi.pass.org if the presenter makes them available.

  • GlomOnToMe

    QlikView? Qlik Sense has been out for more than 3 years now. Why compare against their old product?

    • Carlos R

      QlikView is a more mature product when compared to QlikSense. Besides Sense doesn’t yet have all the major functionalities available, hence the comparison between PBI and QlikView.

      • GlomOnToMe

        Major functionalities like what? The two products share a common engine/backend. The only difference is the front-end for creating visualizations, which is Sense’s sweet spot.

      • Wendy King

        Qlik Sense is the proper tool to compare PowerBI to. I will call you today.
