7 First considerations

One of the first things to consider when setting up IQdesktop is the decision if a single-user or multi-user system should be set up. The general recommendation from IntiQuan is:

  1. Use IQdesktop on local analysts’ computers as single user installation. This allows to conduct computationally non-intensive tasks, such as data programming, reporting, data exploration, etc. locally.
  2. In addition, provide a multi-user environment that can be used for computationally intensive tasks on a shared server.

There are many other possibilities. Talk to us, if unsure.

In the “Getting Started” part the main focus is on the installation of IQdesktop as a single-user system. More information regarding multi-user system installation is proviced in Multi User Environment.
