Qlik introduces Professional and Analyzer licenses for Qlik Sense

Qlik announces Professional and Analyzer licenses for Qlik Sense

As of today, Qlik has changed to a new licensing model for Qlik Sense. To those of you who’ve been around the Qlik ecosystem a little longer, this change will sound very familiar. Read on for a short summary of the most interesting changes.

The Qlik Sense Token model is replaced with Professional and Analyzer licenses

The current token model is being replaced with Professional and Analyzer licenses*:

  • Professional is equivalent to allocating a single token to a named user in the old token model. Professional users can use all the features of Qlik Sense;
  • Analyzer is a significantly cheaper license, that allows for consumption of apps, creating bookmarks and stories, printing objects/stories/sheet and exporting to Excel. This new license is ideally suited for users who only want/need to interact with existing applications.

This change applies to both perpetual and subscription licensing for Qlik Sense.

Existing customers can still continue to use the token model (and purchase additional tokens), but switching has a few interesting benefits.

Extra goodies in the box

The new licensing model, now includes:

  • Qlik GeoAnalytics base version
  • All Qlik Web Connectors (excluding the SAP connectors)
  • Qlik DataMarket Essentials

in the Qlik Sense packaging. This applies to both perpetual and subscription licensing. When using subscription licensing, development and test servers are also included in the subscription. As licensing costs have only been very marginally raised (and may actually be lowered if you can leverage Analyzer licenses), this is a lot of “free” stuff that is now included in the box!

For more information and pricing get in touch with your Qlik Partner or Qlik Account Manager.

* Professional and Analyzer were also used in QlikView up to ~ 2009
