Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.""Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.""QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.""Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.""The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license."
