When applications developed in Dyalog are distributed to other users or machines than those for which developer licences have been acquired, a Run Time Licence is required. The Run Time Licence is free of charge for stand alone single user applications. Run Time Licences are not free under the following circumstances:
|Single User Run Time Licences||Bundle of 5||Bundle of 10||Bundle of 25||Bundle of 50||Bundle of 100|
|Windows 32 bit||£250||£475||£1125||£2000||£3750|
When several users use one or more applications on a shared server, a Server Licence is required. Examples of this are applications running under Citrix, Windows terminal Server and similar platforms, Web Servers, or servers using Distributed COM or other transactional platforms. The minimum server configuration is for 20 simultaneous users.
Server licences are inclusive of all necessary Run Time Licences. If, for example, an application allows 20 desktop users to share data on the server, a server licence for 20 users includes all relevant fees for desktop users and server.
For Facility Management Applications, where an organisation is running a service on behalf of several client organisations, appropriate Server Licences are required for each distinct customer organisation.
|Server Run Time Licence Fees||Annual Licence Fee|
|Server 32 Bit 20 users||£750|
|Server 32 Bit 50 users||£1500|
|Server 32 Bit 100 users||£2500|

For licence holders of Windows Developer licences (32 bit or 64 bit) Dyalog offers an alternative royalty based run time fee. The royalty is calculated as 2% of all revenue generated by sales, consulting and support of applications developed using Dyalog. The royalty is invoiced yearly in arrears.
The royalty covers all required run time licences for users of services or software delivered by the royalty licence holder. In addition the royalty covers support and upgrades for the licence holder.
This option is ideal for consultancies and software vendors who need to be up-to-date on Dyalog versions and platforms. Dyalog has developed this model in appreciation of the fact that business development requires sophisticated tools – often before the revenue stream is secured.
Note that, in situations where APL is used to develop educational tools or applications used in not-for-profit environments the royalty based run time licence is also a viable option.
Dyalog offers a free Educational Licence to students at all levels of education. The Licence is restricted solely to educational purposes and each user is required to sign an agreement where they guarantee that:
|The Software will not be copied|
|The Software will not be handed over to anyone else|
|The Software will not be used for commercial purposes|
|The Licence holder will send Dyalog a short report each year explaining his/her usage of the software including experiences, good and bad.|
In cases where the licence is granted to a University or School the Licence holder is responsible for making their students aware of the conditions.
Non-commercial licences allow APL users to have a copy of the latest APL technology for personal use and experimentation. The licence may not be used to perform or provide any kind of service or application to a third party, whether or not the licencee is paid for his or her services.

As a general rule, Dyalog does not offer application development consultancy as part of our services. We work with a network of qualified consultants who offer these services and are happy to connect our customers to one of our consulting partners. Where relevant, we can provide architecture review and quality assurance services in connection with projects performed by a partner – see Senior Consultancy below.
Dyalog offers customer specific development of new features for Dyalog and related products. Development requests will be evaluated with regards to general applicability and appliance to Dyalog’s long term strategy for product development and direction.
When a request for enhancement is approved, Dyalog will forward a time estimate to the customer. In some cases more than one customer can act as sponsor for a particular enhancement and the cost will then be split between the sponsors according to agreement between the parties.
Developer Days are available on demand (subject to availability of Dyalog resource), or according to an annual schedule.
Dyalog offers performance and architecture reviews of existing and proposed applications and trouble shooting with respect to specific problems, especially platform migrations. Services are offered at a daily rate or on an ‘agreed result’ basis.
