What are the licensing costs of Qlik Sense, QlikView and Qlik NPrinting?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of Qlik Sense, QlikView and Qlik NPrinting costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you do this a few weeks before the end of Qlik’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. In addition, nowadays it is recommended running the software in the cloud, for the most part, you only pay for your consumption then. The purchase cost of Qlik Sense, QlikView and Qlik NPrinting may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support do return each year.

What makes Qlik BI & Analytics unique?

In our study, we see that Qlik in the field of BI & Analytics software has a number of specific features and thus differentiates itself from the competition. This makes Qlik Analytics more or less unique: visual text analytics, regression chart, average trend line, chart suggestion and Hadoop Cloudera.
