Qlik announced a new dual-use licensing offer to enable its over 30,000 QlikView customers to instantly expand their analytics use cases by adding Qlik Sense for existing users for just a 30% uplift on existing QlikView annual maintenance.
This offer immediately increases customers’ ability to deliver analytics throughout their organization and improve user data literacy, while still leveraging the benefits of their mission-critical QlikView applications.
“In every interaction with our loyal QlikView customers I hear how essential it is to their ongoing operations,” said Mike Capone, Qlik CEO. “However, they also see how Qlik Sense can help them become even more data-driven. This offer is our commitment to meet our loyal customers’ needs with a dual-use model that will deliver them the greatest value.”
Qlik continues to invest in and release new versions of QlikView annually, supporting key ongoing core customer analytics workflows. Adding Qlik Sense opens analytics to every user across the enterprise through a modern, self-service oriented experience.
Qlik Sense incorporates the latest technologies, including augmented intelligence, multi-cloud data exploration, search and seamless collaboration from any device, enabling data to be used in every workflow and decision by every user.
Both Qlik Sense and QlikView run on the patented Qlik associative engine, which combines data and supports interactive, free-form exploration without the limitations of query-based tools. Because both products share the same engine, customers can easily re-use existing assets such as data models and analytic expressions.
And Qlik is making significant investments to improve coexistence, including more seamless product integration, single user identity management, a unified point of access for users, and a range of dual-use services that span application and architecture assessments, application conversion and user education.
