Qlik Cloud Services is the cloud environment that Qlik hosts and runs for customers. To use this environment, you must request a Qlik Cloud Services tenant, and then enable multi-cloud in your Qlik Sense Enterprise for Windows deployment.
Your Qlik administrator sets up policies to distribute apps to the cloud. The policies also specify who can see the apps. App owners set the appropriate properties on their apps, and the distribution of the apps is then automatic.
App consumers see apps in the public collections that are defined by distribution rules. They can also create their own private collections, and mark favorites.
Qlik Sense Enterprisecan bedeployedon combinations of on-premise and cloud sites, all within a fully governed, self-service oriented environment that provides scalability and trust for your organization.
Qlik Sense Enterpriseincludes a containerized multi-cloud architecture, enabling you to deploy entirely on-premise, in a private cloud, and/or inQlik’s hosted cloud.
UsingQlik Sense Enterprise on Windows, you can continue to deploy on-premise and in the cloud.
UsingQlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes, you can deployQlik’s new highly-elastic, cloud-native architecture on-premise or in the cloud of your choice.
For a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, you can useQlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud Services, and deploy entirely inQlik’s cloud.
Documentation for Qlik Cloud Services can be found on the Qlik Help site.
To begin using Qlik Cloud Services you must register for a subscription. Contact your Qlik sales representative to register for a Qlik Cloud Services subscription. Once you register your subscription you will receive an email that contains your Qlik ID as well as link to log in and request your tenant domain.
Re: Standalone Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services
Hi Alejandro, thanks for the reply
You said this:

I understand that has been how it has worked. But in the April 2019 docs (see my link) it says this:
With Qlik Sense April 2019 we have introduced a standalone SaaS deployment option for Qlik Sense Enterprise (QSE), with the ability to create, reload, and consume Qlik Sense apps entirely on Qlik’s hosted cloud.
What is your interpretation of this change - if it still requires QSE for Windows deployed then what is the actual change, and in what sense is the SaaS standalone?
It also says:
With Qlik Sense April 2019, all deployment options for Qlik Sense Enterprise, which includes Qlik Cloud Services (SaaS), Kubernetes, and Windows , are available independently
Please do look at the Mike Tarrollo video I linked to about this which also seems to indicate the SaaS deployment can be fully standalone has a diagram that explicitly shows the Windows deployment being optional.
