Qlik Sense Desktop is no longer free

Qlik Sense Desktop is no longer free after June 30th, because you can now get started faster and easier on any device in the cloud.

Qlik Sense Desktop will continue to be supported as part of a Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment.

We would like to share with you the following information and updates regarding key areas of concern.

API Developer access to development tool:
  • We realize that Qlik Sense Desktop is an integral part of many API developers in our community, and a solution will be provided prior to June 2020 that will provide similar or better ability to develop with Qlik’s APIs and will be communicated via our Qlik developer community, Qlik Branch.
Ability to easily try Qlik Sense for extended periods of time:
  • We will continue to invest in making it easier and faster for anyone (not just Windows users) to try Qlik Sense via a cloud-based trial approach with Qlik Sense Business. We recognize that it is not always possible to make a decision in 30 days, so trial users will be able to extend their trial for an additional 15 days on their own. If additional time is needed to make a decision, trials can be extended further, we only ask our trial users to engage with a salesperson who can assist with your evaluation of Qlik Sense.

 

Ability to keep data offline while trying (and using) Qlik Sense:
  • We have enabled Qlik Sense Desktop to authenticate via SaaS editions of Qlik Sense which enables Qlik Sense Business users to also use Qlik Sense Desktop. Therefore paid and trial users can keep their data local if they choose.

 

Access to Qlik Sense for key influencers and promoters of Qlik:
  • We will continue our investments in e-commerce capabilities so we can grant faster, easier and more customized access to Qlik Sense. This capability is much more than the ability to just buy Qlik Sense via a credit card, also giving Qlik the ability to efficiently service special groups via programs such as our Academic ProgramCorporate Responsibility Program software grants.
