Qlikview vs Qlik Sense - What's the advantage of Qlikview against the Qlik Sense?

I was searching for the difference between Qlikview and Qlik Sense, and, here in community, I've found this:

  • QlikView

is a tool for situations where you want prepared business applications, i.e. applications created by developers who put a lot of thought into the data model, the layout, the charts and the formulae; and deliver the applications to end-users who consume the applications. We call this Guided Analytics. The end-user has total freedom to explore data, select, drill down and navigate in the information, and can this way discover both questions and answers in the data. The end-user is however limited when it comes to creating new visualizations. This type of situation will without doubt be common for many, many years to come.


  • Qlik Sense

is a tool for situations where you don’t want to pre-can so much. Instead you want the user to have the freedom to create a layout of his own and in it, new visualizations; charts that the developer couldn’t imagine that the user wants to see. You want Self-service data discovery, which means a much more active, modern, engaged user. In addition, Qlik Sense is much easier to use when you have a touch screen, and is adaptive to different screen sizes and form factors. On the whole, Qlik Sense is a much more modern tool.


I never used Qlik Sense, only Qlikview, but looking for the descriptions I ask: What's the advantage of Qlikview against the Qlik Sense?

I know that are two different products but with Qlik Sense we can:

  • Develop the same dashboards as Qlikview;
  • Publish and Create (Qlikview doesn’t allow the creation in Server).


What have Qlikview that Qlik Sense don't have?


Thanks!

In a nutshell, QlikView allows a lot more fine-tuned control over the presentation of your applications and charts, compared to Qlik Sense, where most of these configurations are automated for increased ease of use. Just a few examples:

- QlikView screens allow pixel-perfect control of your screen contents, while Qlik Sense has a 24x12 grid, which can be viewed as a limitation or as an advantage. On the other hand, Qlik Sense has "responsive behavior" and QlikView does not...

- In QlikView Charts, there are many attributes that can define precisely how the chart should look like. On Qlik Sense, most of these attributes are automated. Generally speaking, Qlik Sense charts look a lot more beautiful that QlikView charts, but it's often impossible to get the exact look and feel that you wanted.

- I'd say QlikView tables (Straight Tables and Pivot Tables) are a lot more versatile than the tables in Sense. You can add Gauges, Mini Charts, Images, and Links in QlikView, but not in Qlik Sense.

Imagine two camcorders - a professional model and a high-end consumer model. Professional model has hundreds of settings that you probably don't know what to do with, but professionals can create wonderful movies with it. The consumer model has 5 buttons, it's smaller and slicker, and 99% of non-professionals can make very decent-looking video footage with it. This is, in my opinion, QlikView vs. Qlik Sense. In addition, Qlik Sense has a whole new dimension of being easily extensible and easily integrated in Web applications. That dimension takes Qlik Sense into a whole different ball game. But, in the "traditional" business of developing dashboards, my comparison is fairly accurate:

QlikView - professionals can develop wonderful dashboards with it, but non-professionals find it hard to use.

Qlik Sense - non-professionals can develop decent-looking dashboards, almost without any technical help. Professionals find it a bit too limited in the amount of tuning options available to us.

Just my personal view...
