    Licence Options

      Hi

       

      We are currently running Qlikview Small Business Server with 5 Names User CALS. We want to make the various documents that we've created available to more of the organisation. We are considering purchasing either Document or Session CALS but are unclear on what the minimum purchase is.

      Our reseller/partner has advised that we need document CALS and that minimum purchase is 100 which based on the price quoted would be very expensive..

      Can anyone advise if we really need document CALS or if session CALS wold suffice. Also if anyone has details of minimum number that must be purchased (100??) and an idea of costs I'd be most grateful.

       

      Thanks in advance

          Hi Bob,

          User Cal's are assign to a user and can only be used by that user. If you try to bypass this by having more than one user use the same ID, it will not work. Session Cal's do not care who the user is. If there is a session Cal available it will allow it to be used. My understanding is Session Cal's are more expense than User Cal's. You account Manager is correct in his advice.

              Hi

              BBT - thanks for the reply.

              Can anyone advise on what's the minumim number of user CALS that can be purchased? - 100 seems very high for a lot of organisations.

              Thanks

              Bob

                  You can purchase any number of *user* CALs (though they tend to prefer to ship them out in multiples of five). 100 is the minimum requirement for *document* CALs. You may or may not be able to talk QlikTech into selling you a smaller amount, but 100 is the official number.
