QlikView Licensing

Agenda

License Types Defined


How Do They Work Together? When Would I Use Them? Scenarios

License Types - Defined

Client Access License (CAL): Purchased with QlikView Server and tied to the serial number CALs are Server Based Not Client Based CALs are specific to one (1) QlikView Server Cluster Licensing is available for sharing licenses across Servers QlikView has 4 Types of Client Access Licenses (CALs) Named User DOC Session Usage

License Types - Defined

Named User CAL Based on User or Machine Identity Can access unlimited QlikView Documents on 1 QlikView Server User will always have access to QlikView Documents

DOC CAL Allows one user to open one Document License is perpetual License is associated with a Document and user Sold in increments of 100

License Types - Defined

Session CAL Allows 1 User to have access to 1 QlikView Document (Session) Not tied to a User or Machine (First come, first serve) User can access QlikView Documents as long as a Session CAL is available Every Document that is opened takes 1 Session CAL (i.e., If I have 2 QlikView Documents open at the same time, I will use 2 Session CALs) Usage CAL Allows 1 User to have access to 1 QlikView Document (Session) for 1 hour over a 28 day period Not tied to a User or Machine User can access QlikView Documents as long as a Usage CAL is available

How Do These Work Together??

How Do These Work Together?

Often times it makes sense to combine the different CALs in a single installation based on user requirements. When CALs are combined, this is the order in which they are evaluated: 1. If there is a dedicated Named User CAL for the connecting Client it will be used 2. If there is a Doc Cal for this user it will be used 3. If there is an available Session CAL it will be used 4. If there is an available Usage CAL it will be used 5. If none of the above are available access is denied

When would I use them?

Named User CAL: Commonly deployed for users within an organization that need dedicated access to QlikView Include QlikView Developers, Power Users, and sometimes Executive level Managers Document CAL: Commonly deployed for organizations that have QlikView deployed departmentally and users within each department only need access to specific QlikView documents Very flexible DOC CALs allow for many combinations Very Cost-effective way to expand QlikView usage departmentally Include users within departments that ONLY need access to applications specific to their departmental responsibilities

When would I use them?

Session CAL: Commonly deployed for organizations that have a larger user base and are looking for a cost-effective way to deploy QlikView Similar to concurrent licensing but is a 1:1 ratio between CAL and documents. (1 user opens 1 document = 1 Session CAL, 1 User opens 2 documents = 2 Session CALs) Deployed for frequent QlikView users that dont need dedicated access Include Business Analysts and Mid-Management

When would I use them?

Usage CAL: Commonly deployed within organizations to handle overflow users during peak usage times Very cost-effective for large organizations that have many casual users Allows access to 1 QlikView Document for 1 hour within a 28 day period Good for handling users that only need infrequent access to QLikView (i.e. viewing month-end reports)

Scenarios

The following scenarios are simply example licensing configurations to give you an understanding of when to use the different options. There is really no right answer and each organization will have its own configuration based on their specific needs.
We will work with you to determine the best mix of licensing options to ensure you have the most optimum and cost-effective license configuration.
