Qlik have made many steps to easing the transition from QlikView to Qlik Sense over the past few years, and the unified licensing model is just one more initiative in this channel. Unified licensing provides a single license key for users to access both QlikView and Qlik Sense apps in a central hub. Not only does this reduce the burden of license management, but it also improves license usage visibility and compliance. The unified licensing model is a great compliment to the already available tools to help automatically port QlikView apps over to Qlik Sense.
The MIT License is a permissive free software license originating at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the late 1980s. As a permissive license, it puts only very limited restriction on reuse and has, therefore, high license compatibility.
Unlike copyleft software licenses, the MIT License also permits reuse within proprietary software, provided that all copies of the software or its substantial portions include a copy of the terms of the MIT License and also a copyright notice. As of 2020[update], the MIT License was the most popular software license found in one analysis, continuing from reports in 2015 that the MIT License was the most popular software license on GitHub.
The MIT No Attribution License, a variation of the MIT License, has the identifier MIT-0 in the SPDX License List. A request for legacy approval to the Open Source Initiative was filed on May 15, 2020, which led to a formal approval on August 5, 2020. By doing so, it forms a public-domain-equivalent license, the same way as BSD Zero Clause. It has the following terms:
The name \"MIT License\" is potentially ambiguous. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has been using many licenses for software since its creation; for example, MIT offers four licensing options for the FFTW C source code library, one of which is the GPL v2.0 and the other three of which are not open-source. The term \"MIT License\" has also been used to refer to the Expat License (used for the XML parsing library Expat) and to the X11 License (also called \"MIT/X Consortium License\"; used for X Window System by the MIT X Consortium). Furthermore, the \"MIT License\" as published by the Open Source Initiative is the same as the Expat License. Due to this differing use of terms, some prefer to avoid the name \"MIT License\". The Free Software Foundation argues that the term is misleading and ambiguous, and recommends against its use.
The X Consortium was dissolved late in 1996, and its assets transferred to The Open Group, which released X11R6 initially under the same license. The X11 License and the X11R6 \"MIT License\" chosen for ncurses by the Free Software Foundation both include the following clause, absent in the Expat License:
The X.Org Foundation has chosen the following format of the MIT License as the preferred format for code included in the X Window System distribution. This is a slight variant of the common MIT license form published by the Open Source Initiative
The \"slight variant\" is the addition of the phrase \"(including the next paragraph)\" to the second paragraph of the license text, resulting in: \"The above copyright notice and this permission notice (including the next paragraph) shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.\" This inclusion clarifies that the liability paragraph must also be included for the conditions of the license to be met.
The license-management features at popular source code repository GitHub, as well as its \"Choose a License\" service, do not differentiate between MIT/Expat license variants. The text of the Expat variant is presented as simply the \"MIT License\" (represented by the metadata tag mit).
The original BSD license also includes a clause requiring all advertising of the software to display a notice crediting its authors. This \"advertising clause\" (since disavowed by UC Berkeley) is present in the modified MIT License used by XFree86.
The GNU GPL is explicit about the patent grant an author would be giving when the code (or derivative work) is distributed, the MIT license does not discuss patents. Moreover, the GPL license impacts derivative works, but the MIT license does not.
Like the BSD license, the MIT license does not include an express patent license although some commentators state that the grant of rights covers all potential restrictions including patents. Both the BSD and the MIT licenses were drafted before the patentability of software was generally recognized under US law. The Apache License version 2.0 is a similarly permissive license that includes an explicit contributor's patent license.Of specific relevance to US jurisdictions, the MIT license uses the terms \"sell\" and \"use\" that are also used in defining the rights of a patent holder in Title 35 of the United States Code section 154. This has been construed by some commentators as an unconventional but implicit license in the US to use any underlying patents.
As of 2020[update], according to WhiteSource Software the MIT license was used in 27% of four million open source packages. As of 2015[update], according to Black Duck Software[better source needed] and a 2015 blog from GitHub, the MIT license was the most popular free software license, with the GNU GPLv2 coming second in their sample of repositories.
QlikView Server hosts documents, users, and objects whereas QlikView Publisher is a component of QVS that is responsible for data reduction and distribution, accessing, and managing content. Users need to get a separate license for Publisher.
The AnalyticsGate Excel add-in is fully usable with Qlik Sense Cloud. Users connect to Qlik Cloud via the Excel interface using their Qlik URL and Qlik license code. Users log in using their usual Qlik credentials. Users then have access to the Qlik Cloud database and applications in line with their individual authorization and can work analytically and plan with the data in the Excel interface.
Use the built-in Internet Explorer or AnalyticsGate browser. Enter your Qlik Cloud URL and your Qlik license code. Log in with your Qlik user credentials as usual and access the Qlik database and application.
2 Licensing and Pricing guidelines - QlikView 11 This document is prepared to support Sales to understand policies and restriction regard QlikView Product. For more detailed and technical information, please read the Product Tech Sheets and/or the Server Reference Manual published by Product Management. Add on deals (new) Any add on deal to an existing QlikView solution should be done through the same Channel as the initial order. This is important to make sure all licensing and maintenance agreements are in place. The reason for this would be the way we always reference the First Agreement Date in an additional Order Form and by this any amendment in the initial order will be incorporated by reference to the add-on order. Direct Deals Deals on QlikTech paper will support deal done by the NAM, an EIS or an ISR rep. Indirect Deals Deals on Partner will identify the Sell Through Partner on the opportunity as the Responsible Partner for the Account. Set as the Responsible Partner on the account sets the expectations and gives privileges in the relationship with the Customer: Responsible and paid for First Line Support Access to the Account, Contact and Private Opportunities in the Partner Portal Responsible for maintenance renewals toward the Customer Channel for add-on deals. As more users or other functions sold to an existing licensed QlikView Server will not create a new license key but update the correspondent attribute in the existing LEF file. Any Customer could engage with the Partner of choice but only have relationship with one Partner at the time regarding buying more users and maintenance renewals. The reason is the structure of a QlikView Server doesn t allow a one too many relationship for performing add-on deals or First Line Support. If the Customer would like to move this arrangement to another Partner or even to do deal with QlikTech, addition paperwork is needed. If the arrangement is to be moved to a new Partner, this has to be reported to the Local Controller to make sure all systems are updated. This is done on a simple from where the Customer confirm the original arrangement with the previous Partner are terminated and a new arrangement is finalized the new Partner. This form will make it possible for us to change the Responsible Partner for Customer in question. Minimum Orders (new) Minimum Order Quantities for new servers: Enterprise Edition and Small Business Edition Server 5 Named User CALs is always required (minimum) but no other CALs now require a minimum. Extranet Server 5 Extranet Session CALs is always required (minimum).
3 Follow on orders: Only 1 minimum value is now required if the transaction contains more than one CAL type. This means 5 Named User CALs and 5 Document CALs in the same transaction would be considered as a valid order and so on Small Business Edition Server: either 5 Named User CALs or 10 Document CALs Enterprise Edition Server: either 5 Named User CALs, 10 Document CALs, 1 Session CAL or 25 Usage CALs. Extranet Server; 1 Extranet Session CAL or 25 Usage CALs Exceptions: SBE server: (Buy more or Upgrade) because of the maximum limitation: If more than 21 Named User CALs are current on the QlikView Server we would allow a smaller number as the maximum number of Named User CALs is 25, for example: 21 existing + 4 new = existing + 3 new = 25 and so on.. SBE server: (Buy more or Upgrade) because of the maximum limitation: If more than 91 Document CALs are current on the QlikView Server we would allow a smaller number as the maximum number of Document CALs is 100, for example: 91 existing + 9 new = existing + 8 new = 100 and so on.. Local Clients: As a general term not to be sold to a Customer running aqlikview Server as they would get the same functions by a Named User CAL plus one more user on the server.
