Termination of Nvivo Site License

The site license on Nvivo, a solution for qualitative data analysis, will not be renewed upon the expiry of the current agreement on 1 September 2017 due to the shrinking demand from departments as well as the price increment imposed by the vendor.  Both factors make this site license unable to operate in a sustainable way and thus this non-renewal decision.

Subscribing departments have already been informed of this decision to allow time for them to look for other alternate software solutions if necessary.  Departments may also consider ordering standalone licenses from the supplier, QSR, directly if this software has to be continuously used.

Subsequently, this software will also be removed from the communal PCs supported by us including those in the Chi Wah Learning Commons and KB-110 in summer 2017 when the PC image will be refreshed.

Thank you for your attention.
