The QualiWare core - QualiWare LifeCycle Manager

QLM - QualiWare LifeCycle Manager

QLM is a core product. It is “the whole product”, but the rest of the products will enable their specific functionality. For this reason this product does not have a license that is bought individually. It is in the list since it is foundation for everything and a name that will appear in many situations.

All licenses will depend on this product. QLM is embedded core software in QBM, QEM, QEA and CaseMaker.

In older versions you would find that the icon to log into QualiWare would be called QLM, now it is called QualiWare, and that is the name that the program now is known for.

QIS - QualiWare Integration Server

It is a Microsoft .Net based server. Using MS SQL Server, Analysis Services, AD and IIS. Includes QualiWare Governance Workflow Engine (GWE).

Maintenance is 20% of license price per year (before any discount).

All software licenses may be rented at a monthly rental fee per user corresponding to:
