Visualization should be the basis of any analytics job- be it BI or Data Science. The simple goal of visualization is to find out what your data is telling you and what it will take to make any decision based on the data. Deriving insights is one thing but communicating it in the form of reports, dashboards, or interactive visualizations (also known as Business Intelligence) requires a completely different skill.
QlikView is one of the most intuitive Business Intelligence (BI) tool which is also very fast to deploy and easy to learn. So, if you want to communicate the insights that you just derived from your data to a large audience, Qlikview can be a good choice.
