Managing Multiple Licenses

Organizations with multiple Analytica users often find it convenient to track and manage their licenses using the Reprise License Manager (RLM). Running RLM has these advantages:

  • You can track usage of each type of license to see if you need more or fewer licenses.
  • You can more easily add, remove, or transfer licenses from one named user to another.
  • You can use Floating licenses (sometimes known as concurrent licenses) that let anyone in your organization use Analytica, but only one person at a time per Floating license.
  • Roaming lets a user check out a Floating license to use out of the office and away from the network. On return to the office, the user checks it back in to make it available to others again.

When Analytica is installed on a physical (non-virtual) server there is no installation fee. If you wish to install Analytica on a virtual server, there is an installation fee of $250.

Getting started with RLM

First, you must decide on the number of licenses by edition. If your organization already has some licenses, there is no cost  to use RLM and convert each individual license to a Named user license. A floating license is equivalent to 2.5 individual licenses. Contact us to discuss your needs and trade-ins.

Many organizations already use RLM for other software. If your organization doesn’t yet use it, it can be easily purchased and installed on a server computer. For details on how to install the RLM, see Configuring an RLM Server.

How each user installs Analytica

After setting up the RLM on a server, the IT admin sends each user the name of the server, the port number (if it doesn’t use the default 5053). The admin can specify which edition of Analytica each user has, Professional, Enterprise, Optimizer, etc. Or the admin can let each user choose any edition from those available. The user then downloads the Analytica installer from the Analytica Download Page. During installation, he or she specifies the server name and selects the Analytica edition. At any time, a user can switch to a different edition from those available via a pull-down menu in the Analytica License dialogue.
