Qlik ETL & Data Integration

Below we give an abstract of our recently updated, independent ETL & Data Integration research on the software vendor Qlik and its product portfolio (such as Qlik Replicate, Attunity and Qlik Compose). Qlik ETL & Data Integration scores better in our independent study than Talend but quite worse than IBM. Qlik is the strongest in data connectivity and the least strong in self-service integration. We have been able to establish this objectively. Within the context of ETL & Data Integration, we have researched the pros and cons of Qlik Data Integration, and listed them by theme (DI, extract transform load, data replication and data quality). We also display the strengths of key products like Qlik Replicate, Attunity and Qlik Compose et cetera.

Three recent innovations of Qlik Data Integration-tools and the version history

Recently, we see a stable evolution when it comes to ETL & Data Integration functionality and support for various platforms and data sources. The latest innovations are in the areas of data quality management > business rules, data replication > sql replication and master data management > master data.

We investigated Qlik’s most recent releases of its complete ETL & Data Integration proposition. As far as we can tell, Qlik does not use an identifiable version numbering system.

Can you easily determine the licensing costs of Qlik Replicate, Attunity and Qlik Compose?

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine the licensing costs of Qlik ETL & Data Integration because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you do this a few weeks before the end of Qlik’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. In addition, we recommend running the software in the cloud. Often you only pay for what you consume in resources. The purchase cost of Qlik Replicate, Attunity and Qlik Compose may not be the largest amounts, but maintenance and support can certainly put quite a strain on your annual budget.

What makes Qlik ETL & Data Integration worth considering

In our study, we see that Qlik in the field of ETL & Data Integration software has several specific features which may be the deciding factor in purchasing. This makes Qlik Data Integration more or less unique: real-time data warehousing, full load, data marts, apache hive and database replication.

The advantages and disadvantages of Qlik Data Integration

In the following paragraphs, we name all the pros and cons of Qlik ETL & Data Integration, Qlik Replicate, Attunity and Qlik Compose, et cetera. They are not cemented in place, i.e.: Qlik can currently work on creating features that meet specific customer needs (such as support for address verification). Or a certain feature is not (yet) (well) documented.
