Agenda • License Types Defined • How Do They Work Together? • When Would I Use Them? • Scenarios
License Types - Defined • Client Access License (CAL): • Purchased with QlikView Server and tied to the serial number • CAL’s are Server Based – Not Client Based • CAL’s are specific to one (1) QlikView Server • Cluster Licensing is available for sharing licenses across Servers • QlikView has 4 Types of Client Access Licenses (CALs) • Named User • DOC • Session • Usage
License Types - Defined • Named User CAL • Based on User or Machine Identity • Can access unlimited QlikView Documents on 1 QlikView Server • User will always have access to QlikView Documents • DOC CAL • Allows one user to open one Document • License is perpetual • License is associated with a Document and user • Sold in increments of 100
License Types - Defined • Session CAL • Allows 1 User to have access to 1 QlikView Document (Session) • Not tied to a User or Machine (First come, first serve) • User can access QlikView Documents as long as a Session CAL is available • Every Document that is opened takes 1 Session CAL (i.e., If I have • 2 QlikView Documents open at the same time, I will use 2 Session • CAL’s) • Usage CAL • Allows 1 User to have access to 1 QlikView Document (Session) • for 1 hour over a 28 day period • Not tied to a User or Machine • User can access QlikView Documents as long as a Usage CAL is • available How Do These Work Together??
How Do These Work Together? Often times it makes sense to combine the different CAL’s in a single installation based on user requirements. When CAL’s are combined, this is the order in which they are evaluated: If there is a dedicated Named User CAL for the connecting Client – it will be used If there is a Doc Cal for this user – it will be used If there is an available Session CAL – it will be used If there is an available Usage CAL – it will be used If none of the above are available – access is denied
When would I use them? • Named User CAL: • Commonly deployed for users within an organization that need • dedicated access to QlikView • Include QlikView Developers, Power Users, and sometimes • Executive level Managers • Document CAL: • Commonly deployed for organizations that have QlikView deployed departmentally and users within each department only need access to specific QlikView documents • Very flexible – DOC CAL’s allow for many combinations • Very Cost-effective way to expand QlikView usage departmentally • Include users within departments that ONLY need access to applications specific to their departmental responsibilities
When would I use them? • Session CAL: • Commonly deployed for organizations that have a larger user base and • are looking for a cost-effective way to deploy QlikView • Similar to concurrent licensing but is a 1:1 ratio between CAL and • documents. (1 user opens 1 document = 1 Session CAL, 1 User • opens 2 documents = 2 Session CALs) • Deployed for frequent QlikView users that don’t need dedicated • access • Include Business Analysts and Mid-Management
When would I use them? • Usage CAL: • Commonly deployed within organizations to handle “overflow” users • during peak usage times • Very cost-effective for large organizations that have many “casual” • users • Allows access to 1 QlikView Document for 1 hour within a 28 • day period • Good for handling users that only need infrequent access to QLikView • (i.e. viewing month-end reports)
Scenarios The following scenarios are simply example licensing configurations to give you an understanding of when to use the different options. There is really no “right” answer and each organization will have its’ own configuration based on their specific needs. We will work with you to determine the best mix of licensing options to ensure you have the most optimum and cost-effective license configuration.
Scenarios Scenario #1 50 users total. All need frequent access to QlikView documents (1-2 per day). 1 User that will develop/maintain QlikView applications. 50 Named User CALs 49 Dedicated QlikView Users QlikView Server 1 QlikView Developer
Scenarios Scenario #2 100 users total. 25 of which need frequent access to QlikView documents (1-2 per day). 2 Users will develop/maintain QlikView applications. The rest will use QlikView on average 1-2 times per week 25 Named User CALs 23 Dedicated QlikView Users 9 Session CALs (Shared 8:1) 2 QlikView Developers QlikView Server 75 Frequent QlikView Users
Scenarios Scenario #3 200 users total. 25 of which need frequent access to multiple QlikView documents (1-2 per day). 2 Users will develop/maintain QlikView applications. 75 Users will access multiple QlikView documents on average 1-2 times per week. 55 Users are in the Sales Department and need access to only the QlikView Sales application. 45 Users are in the Finance Department and need access to only the QlikView Finance application. 25 Named User CALs 9 Session CALs (Shared 8:1) QlikView Server 23 Dedicated QlikView Users 100 DOC CALs 2 QlikView Developers 75 Frequent QlikView Users 55 Sales Department Users 45 Finance Department Users
Scenarios Scenario #4 100 users total. 25 of which need frequent access to QlikView documents (1-2 per day). 3 Executives that will have a QlikView dashboard on their Desktop. 2 Users will develop/maintain QlikView applications. The rest will use QlikView on average 1-2 times per week. During End-of-Month close, usage of QlikView increases with users viewing QlikView reports. 2 QlikView Developers 3 Executives 30 Named User CALs 23 Dedicated QlikView Users 7 Session CALs (Shared 10:1) 5 Usage CALs (Overflow) 75 Frequent QlikView Users QlikView Server Overflow Users
