Named User vs Concurrent Users

Posted on: November 30, 2008 | By: SuperUser Account | QAD Financials

A named user is based on their Microsoft Active Directory record. Everyone that might log into the software counts as one – whether they are actively logged in or not makes no difference. A user may now have multiple sessions against their Active Directory ID.

Concurrent represents the number of software business applicaiton sessions. A user with multiple sessions increase the count by 1 for every session.

Generally every concurrent user will result in 2-3 named users when changing licensing.

Let me know if you have any questions.
