The recommended way is to access QlikView applications via the browser and the zero footprint Ajax client, providing you have a QlikView Server license.
There are several advantages:
- Centrally managed security
- Easy centralised deployment
- No installation required on client machines
- Access via smartphones and tablets
- Redundancy and backup
- Direct control over performance
This access method is used by most customers.
Offline access can be given in the following ways:
- Use a QlikView Publisher to automatically email applications (with security applied on a per user or per group basis) to offline users, who either have a QlikView local client license, or have a Named User CAL that they have leased from the QlikView Server to their desktop edition
- Same as above but get the Publisher to save the applications to a network location instead of email them, again with per user/group security applied. You could even combine it with folder-level security (Windows). Allows users to download the applications themselves.
- Same as 1. but use the optional PDF Distributor to send static PDF reports to selected users who don't require QlikView's dynamic capabilities
