Because I found some questions about the licensing of DATAZEN, I take this opportunity to clarify some points.
To use SQL Server Reporting Services is required a SQL Server license and to use Excel is required a Microsoft Office license… quite linear.
For DATAZEN, it can be said that this is a “free” software with 2 conditions for the final client:
– Must have the an Enterprise version of SQL Server (not just the standard version).
– Must have an active Microsoft Software Assurance.
So the “free” is relative …
Everything becomes very clear when we want to download Datazen Enterprise Server for later installation (see following image).
I think it is clarified the DATAZEN licensing.
