DIANA License & Modules

Acquiring a DIANA License



Options for DIANA

The information provided below is designed to give you an overview of the many options available to DIANA clients, these options may vary depending on the sales region and are subject to change.

Our sales team is always more than happy to discuss your requirements and can make individualised proposals based on the packages shown below. If you would like to contact a member of the DIANA sales team to gain further information, request a quotation or order the DIANA software, please contact us

Subscription:  the use of the program(s) is restricted to a fixed period of time. Further, the right to receive technical support and updates (maintenance services) is included within the subscription price during the subscription term, unless agreed otherwise. 

Commercial License(s):  provided to industrial entities both for commercial and research purposes.

Academic Licenses(s):  for use at universities, colleges or technical schools, either public or private.  The licenses will be used for teaching and/or research purposes only.   Academic licenses typically include all available features and modules of the software at a favourable price. 

Research License(s):  provided to accredited (and similar) research institutions.

To reflect the different usage requirements of our customers, a number of modules are available and are mentioned below.

DIANA is available via a Softlock and will be activated via the presence of a digital key.  The program can be used as a single or multi-user application on a computer/network, and it is allowed/possible to run the program in a remote session.  

Maximum number of user (project runs) that can work with the program simultaneously is limited by the number of subscribed licenses.
