Qlik Introduces a New Era of Visualization! READ ALL ABOUT IT

Several major changes have recently been made to the QlikView and Qlik Sense Dual Use Licensing offer. These changes make Dual Use Licensing more flexible, easier to qualify for and simpler to implement.

First, we’ve opened-up a subscription option, which accommodates a Capacity licensing model for greater flexibility, so you don’t have to worry about the complications associated with a mixed site (perpetual and subscription). You’ll be able to leverage new functionality sooner and adopt a more unified approach to Qlik product usage. And now, to leverage Dual Use licensing, you can either convert Session and Usage CALs directly to subscription to take advantage of the Capacity model or convert them to Named User and Doc CALs then to the standard Professional and Analyzer licensing model for Dual Use.

To utilize Dual Use under subscription, there is a 40% uplift on annual QlikView maintenance for a 3-year term. Under the perpetual model, Dual Use licensing is available for a 30% uplift on your annual QlikView maintenance.

We’ve also removed the July 1, 2018 offer cut-off date to make it easier to qualify for QlikView and Qlik Sense Dual Use Licensing. This means, regardless of QlikView version or when you initially purchased QlikView, you are eligible* for the Dual Use offer, so long as you’re current on maintenance (Federal and accounts with Enterprise License Agreements continue to be ineligible). Additionally, you are not required to upgrade your release, though we strongly encourage you to use the current version to leverage Professional, Analyzer, Capacity licensing; unified licensing (described further below); and QlikView links in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services and Kubernetes. Conversion to Dual Use remains a one-time event.

Unified licensing, available with QlikView and Qlik Sense April 2019 releases, aligns licensing of QlikView and Qlik Sense, entitling users to both products using a single license key enabled by the Qlik Licensing Service (QLS), to simplify Dual Use adoption. Unified licensing supports Qlik’s one user, one license, one analytics experience vision (formerly known as 1x1x1), with the goal to deliver a single access point for both QlikView and Qlik Sense, bringing the products closer together. Functionality providing greater alignment between products will be delivered later this year. 

Qlik Dual Use Services help simplify Dual Use adoption preparing you to maximize your investment, whether creating new apps in Qlik Sense or transitioning existing apps from QlikView to Qlik Sense.
