 Description:
The School District has been using Qlik business intelligence software since 2016 for data analytics, reporting, and to build internal and public facing dashboards (e.g., District-Wide Survey website, School Profiles). The District holds perpetual licenses for multiple Qlik products. We require a partner to assist in ongoing refinement and maintenance, as well as to host and manage the environment. The current contract for Qlik support and hosting, also with InProcess Consulting, expires in August 2021.  As part of this new contract, we will transition to cloud hosting, which will allow for greater flexibility, scalability, and support as compared to the fixed nature of our current on-premise environment. We will also add up to 1,000 additional licenses.
