Qlikview Licenses

Good morning,

These are the licenses that my company has:

NoDescriptionQuantity
4730QlikView Server Small Business Edition1
4735QlikView Small Business Edition User CAL5
4885QlikView Named Document CAL10
4730S1Maintenance QlikView Server Small Busines1
4735S1Maintenance QlikView SBE User CAL 55
4885S1Maintenance QlikView Document CAL10

Could somebody help me to understand what are the diferences between them? Do you think it's a good distribution?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Qlikview Licenses

First 3 are licences, last 3 represent the 1 year maintenance.

You have 1 server (Small Business = up to 25 users), 5 Named users and 10 Named Documents.

Named user represents the client that connects to the server (user name or machine name). They can access all the documents published by the server.

Document CAL is the unique combination between a user and a published document.

So, you can give access to maxim 15 users (5 - any doc, 10 - single doc). Or you can make combinations like: 5 users - any doc, 5 users - 2 docs.

Re: Qlikview Licenses

Hello Patricia,

Whether this is a good mix will depend on your business needs. If, for example you have a small number of users who need to see everything, then User Cals are the way to go. But if you have users who just need to see one or two documents, then Document Cals would be a better option.

We have both, a small number of people who oversee the business and need access to  all the data, plus a lot of users who just need to see  a small part of the data. We have fifty documents to share, and run with sixteen User Cals and two hundred Document Cals.

If you don’t want to  prevent users from seeing certain data, then there is a cut-off point where it is cost effective to give a user a User Cal. Looking at the prices quoted on the QlikView website, a Document Cal costs $350 and a User Cal $1350. So if a user has access to four or more documents, a User Cal is better value ($1350 against 4 x$350=$1400).

So like so any questions, the answer is that it depends on how you are using QlikView.

Re: Qlikview Licenses

Thank you and Lucian Cotea and John Harper !

I thought that it could be a difference in permissions too, but now, I understand that I have to define with each license.
