    Stand-Alone Licenses

      Does QlickView allow stand-alone developer licenses? For a small user base, I would think that if we get handful of developer licenses, we can avoid buying a server license & hence the above question.

       

      Thanks,

      Dinesh.

          Yes Dinesh. You can buy stand alone developer licenses.

          But in order to have multiple people accessing your applications, you need to have a server. The best approach would be to contact your local QlikView partner and run your requirements through them. They should be able to get you best possible combination for your needs.

          Hope this help.

              If we give these handful of "multiple people" developer licenses, why would one need a server? As I understand, a developer license can open any document, so as long as I have a mechanism to deliver the refreshed report, why would I need a server if I dont have a lot of users?

              Thanks,

              Dinesh.

                  Sure, if that gives you what you need. You would need to store QVW in a shared folder somewhere and have people opening the QVW file directly in their developer client. The access will be slow because every time they open the document it will load all the data in the memory, whereas sever will have it loaded for all.

                  But if you are only talking about few handful users, yes you can surely go with developer clients only setup. The good part is, you can always change your mind and convert these licenses to server based licenses, in future if you grow into QV environment.
