End-of-contract data extraction QlickiT provides a straightforward procedure for off-boarding. Initially, the client must provide one month's notice to cancel in writing. Off-boarding will begin with a termination of service(s) meeting to agree off-boarding steps, which may include:
- Return of data
- Deletion of environments (hosting)
- Removal of shared storage (access)
- Agree ongoing communications
- Audit (as required)

The format of the data would be agreed in advance to ensure there is a smooth transition of the service being provided.
End-of-contract process Costs would be dependent upon services required (if any).
At the end of our engagement, QlickiT will work closely with the client to understand and support the termination process.
Services for this would be charged on a time and materials basis, and may include:
- Data Extraction charges
- Licence charges
- Consulting and Technical Services charges
- Residual Managed Services charges
- Outstanding commitment charges (e.g. hosting fees)

API Yes
What users can and can't do using the API Qlik provides numerous APIs that support both front (UI) and back-end activities. Qlik provides a full .NET SDK, along with JavaScript libraries and server support via RESTful API end-points.
The APIs provide methods for creating connectors to external systems, extracting and importing, transforming, analysing and visualising data. Users can create additional controls for visualisation and maintain independent libraries if required.
Qlik components communicate via HTTPS and WebSockets, providing an easy method to set up, configure or change services or associated applications. Users can set up applications via both the standard API (via REST calls) or via a web interface (HTTPS).
Service APIs include the ability to configure, monitor or control proxies, repositories, service access and security (including APIs for user-directory maintenance). The JavaScript libraries provide browsers with the ability to handle selections, navigation, data formatting and visualisation and also create custom components to extend both front-end and back-end services.
In addition to .NET, Qlik also supports scripting tools/languages (such as R and Python) and the user-community provides open-source extensions in other languages including C++, C# and Go.
API documentation Yes

Qlik aims to be as open as possible with API's and all are documented.
