QlikView Pricing: Understanding the Costs of Ownership

Disclaimer: QlikView is no longer available for new clients. Instead, new users can purchase Qlik’s next-generation analytics solution, Qlik Sense.

There’s no question that Qlik is one of the most notable business intelligence (BI) solutions in the market. However, many users have mentioned that deciphering its pricing model can be a bit of a headache. We tried our hand at clearing up the confusion.

How Much Does It Cost?

As an analytics and data visualization tool, Qlik offers two main products: QlikView and Qlik Sense. Each of these are priced differently.


QlikView Pricing

QlikView has been one of the top business intelligence solutions over the past decade and has paved the way toward self-service BI.

The solution is written for the data developer, offering more granular views and increased control over data management and building apps. As Qlik encourages new and current users to switch to the Qlik Sense platform, it no longer publishes pricing information. In the past, QlikView had two editions: Personal and Enterprise. The Personal edition was intended for individual use and was free to download. The pricing for the Enterprise edition was on a per-user basis, and it was available as a customized quote.

Qlik Sense Pricing

Qlik Sense is a self-service BI tool that’s more approachable for non-tech savvy users. Open application program interfaces (API) offer data developers the ability to embed Qlik Sense into other existing applications.

Qlik Sense has two main editions. First, there’s the Qlik Sense Business edition that costs $30 per user, per month (billed annually). It includes many of Qlik Sense features in addition to up to 5 shared spaces and 1.25 GB in-memory app size limit.

Then, there’s the Qlik Sense Enterprise, a multi-cloud edition, that includes unlimited shared and managed spaces and in-memory app size limit starting at 5 GB. Pricing is no longer available for Qlik Sense Enterprise, so please contact the vendor directly for a quote.
