To: Qlik Community Re: End of Perpetual License Sales Date: March 12, 2021
As we’ve seen over the past several years, the market has shifted to a subscription economy with most consumer and business technology being offered under a subscription model. The vast majority of customers have embraced this new model as it enables them to align spend to ongoing operating budgets, close the gap between “expense” and “value,” and ensure suppliers are continuously delivering the value and experience to justify their technology spend. Businesses that build strong relationships with their customers, and give them the innovation and support they need, see expanded adoption and strong renewals.
Qlik® has been on this journey over the past three years. In 2020, more than 75% of our new license bookings were subscription based. As we expand our offerings in SaaS, the subscription model even more importantly reflects a close relationship between you and Qlik.
As we further align with market trends and strive to deliver ongoing value to our customers, we are making the following changes:
As of April 1, 2021, Qlik will no longer offer perpetual licenses to new or existing customers. This includes Qlik Sense®, QlikView®, Qlik Data Integration and all add-on products.
Customers on perpetual licenses may continue to renew their annual maintenance. Qlik is not actively forcing customers to move to a subscription model; however, customers who wish to expand must do so on a subscription basis.
Qlik Sense customers may add subscription users to an existing perpetual Qlik Sense Enterprise site1. We support a mixed environment, but many of our customers decide to convert their entire environment to subscription for an optimal experience.
To simplify product licensing, many customers are choosing to convert fully to subscription. We are implementing two easy conversion options:
A Client-Managed subscription with a 3-year term
A SaaS subscription with a 3-year term
Token customers are encouraged to move to the Professional/Analyzers license model by maintenance renewal and we have added additional flexibility for customer that use Login Access.
We are also making the move to subscription easier for QlikView® customers with the continuation of our popular Analytics Modernization Program (AMP). We have established this groupin the Qlik Community where you can continue the conversation.
At Qlik, driving innovation to meet the needs of our customers has always been at the forefront of what we do. Moving fully to a subscription model for both client-managed and SaaS offerings will result in greater customer engagement, driving innovation and even greater value to our customers. Please see FAQ attached for additional details.
 Some conditions apply such a being on the current Professional/Analyzer license model with Qlik Sense April 2019 or later and using Qlik Licensing Service (QLS).
