What is the implementation time for Qlik View?

Hello,

I am look for a road map on how to implement Qlik View.

How long does it take? What other costs are involved other then purchasing Qlik View?  Can you provide a list of all things Qlik View can connect to (i.e SAP)? A lessons learned sort of thing..

Thank you for your help.

Michael,

It is the very open questions.  I'll try to give you an idea, but it may be not helpful.

1. Assuming you have QlikView and QlikView Server installed, implementation may take from a few hours to a few months, depending on the complexity of the requirements, data sources, specific knowledge of the business, data, and QlikView itself.

2. Costs - development and maintenance time, equipment.

3. Data sources - there can't be a list.  QlikView can read data from virtually any structured (even not well structured) data source.  If it can't do it directly, there are (or can be built) connectors.  The "most natural" data sources are databases (OLEDB or ODBC connection) and files (Excel, csv, xml...).

Regards,

Michael

Michael,

Thank you for answering my question.  Just to get a very rough picture about implementing QlikView;

How long did it take for your company to stand up QlikView?

Thanks,

Michael

Re: What is the implementation time for Qlik View?

I'm working for a consulting company, so for our clients it is very different.  As for our company itself, it took me exactly one working week (five days) to build the first QV application.  When I started, I had about five years of QV experience, but zero knowledge about the data sources and the requirements.  If I had that knowledge, it would be twice faster at least.

No QV server was involved, just the development.  If there was a Server, it would add a couple hours to install and configure.

There were many more internal applications after that, simple and complex.  Initial development sometimes took a few weeks, and the change requests are ongoing...  Often the logically insignificant, mostly cosmetic requirements take much time.
