Deltek winsight Analytics benefits for IT


wInsight Analytics offers a range of implementations, including a presentation (client) tier, web/application tier and mobile support. Please read below for operating system and software requirement details.


As the first logical tier, the client tier encompasses a standard browser, Microsoft® Internet Explorer, and a small Analyser AJAX client. The client tier also includes support for a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure direct, secure connections over the internet. (Where applicable, dashboard designers will utilise a Windows client/server design tool typically installed on the wInsight Analytics application server.)

Operating System

  • Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista, or Windows 7/8


  • Internet Explorer v8, v9, v10
  • Firefox 6 or later

For the web tier, standards and products include Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and QlikView Web Service. The web tier passes requests from browser to server and vice versa, while also packaging and un-packaging data. This tier contains no business logic.

The application tier, built around QlikView Server, is also known as the “heart of the application” for wInsight Analytics. This tier maintains both user sessions and manages application transactions. Included in the application tier is QVS.exe, which does all the heavy lifting of the application to load data to memory then query that data. The distribution service goes through our business logic to create files for each specific user’s needs.

A separate and dedicated database server is not required. wInsight Analytics uses your wInsight Analytics database environment as its data source and does not require a database instance of its own. However, it is recommended to review and evaluate the current performance and available resources of your database environment on a regular basis to ensure optimal performance of your overall Deltek solution.
