LiMBR licensing options for RiskSpectrum RiskWatcher

RiskWatcher 2.1.0 is protected by the LiMBR software licensing system. The licensing system allows two types of licensing models:

  • Per unit licensing model
  • Per seat licensing model

Per unit (model) license

The per unit licensing model increases the flexibility of RiskWatcher 2.1.0 by allowing an unlimited number of users to open the published models. The license will allow publication (making a model available) of up to the number of models for which you hold a valid license. It is also possible to open one model locally on the server, to check that the model is compiled correctly, prior to publishing it on the network.

The users can, at the time of purchase of the software, decide whether they would like to use the desktop or the web (browser) based version.

The per unit licensing model is a perpetual license with an annual M&S agreement.

Per seat license

The per seat licensing model is based on concurrent users and allows each user to open as many models as they need, it can also publish models for others using the same license model over the intranet.

The per seat license model is only available using the desktop version of RiskWatcher.

The per seat licensing model is a term-based license.
