For 25 years, MIKE Powered by DHI’s software products have been used in water environments all over the world. Thousands of professionals choose MIKE software to solve tough and complex challenges in areas such as oceans and coastlines, rivers and reservoirs, ecology, groundwater, water distribution, wastewater and many more.
Our data management, decision support and operational forecasting software suite traverses all our areas of applications, complementing existing MIKE technologies in the work we do for you.
MIKE Powered by DHI is a range of software products that enable you to accurately analyse, model and simulate any type of challenge in water environments.
Whether you need access for a single user, small businesses, large corporations or universities, we have the pricing option that fits your budget and modelling needs.
We offer Subscription Packages which provide the freedom to enjoy multiple applications with greatly enhanced scalability, Perpetual Licenses if you prefer to build your own software portfolio, Academic Licenses for academic staff and students, as well as access through Azure Marketplace (bring your own license) and MIKE Software as a Service (no separate license necessary). With a wide variety of user access options available, there is sure to be one that is right for your projects.
In November 2021, to coincide with Release 2022, our MIKE software prices will increase (for the first time in 3 years) by 3%. This will affect new purchases of Perpetual Licenses, Subscription Packages and Academic Licenses, and also the price of Essential SMA. SMA on Professional and University licenses is not affected by the price increase. In future, with each new major Release (normally scheduled in November), DHI will index all prices by global inflation, including SMA on Professional and University licenses.

Benefit from straightforward mapping of real-world river basin management to an efficient network modelling framework
Take a look at the enhanced Control Rules features for advanced water allocation
By enabling the configuration of control rules at nodes and reservoirs, MIKE HYDRO Basin users can now control flow at river nodes, define complex water user rules and even impose a deficit on an upstream water user to satisfy a demand for downstream water user. You can also force a reservoir release to meet demand at a downstream location not directly connected to a reservoir as part of a basin-scale reservoir operation simulation.
This affordable subscription package includes all modules of MIKE HYDRO Basin, MIKE SHE and MIKE HYDRO River – comprehensive and well-established tools for modelling hydrology and hydraulics.
Access new tools, Cloud applications and an enhanced graphical overview from the redesigned MIKE Zero start page
MIKE Zero, DHI’s fully Windows integrated graphical user interface, is now better than ever! Enjoy easy access to new MIKE Cloud applications and Cloud-enhanced functionality, plus an extended set of MIKE tools within theme-based (rather than product-based) interactive workflows. Ensure important model components such as sources and structures stay at the forefront with a new interactive, customisable floating mapping window. Lastly, the updated tabbing functionality will help you work in a more organised and efficient manner.
Create models in the cloud with no hardware limitations
You can now access MIKE HYDRO Basin on Azure Marketplace, where you can start modelling in the cloud with no hardware limitation in four simple steps. Learn more
Evaluate river routing options
Account for the flow routing through larger river basins with the River Routing module that allows you to calculate overall hydraulics and water levels in the various river branches.
Analyse water consumption
Develop a greater understanding of water consumption by representing the water withdrawal behaviour of two types of water users: irrigation and regular water users such as municipalities and industrial.
Obtain maximum crop yield
Develop optimal irrigation strategies to obtain maximum crop yield without water spillage and the incurrence of water deficits using the powerful Irrigation module. Users can also run irrigation scenarios for additional insight as to how different crops are affected by crop stress.
Track water content and flow in different layers of soil
Understand the amount of water available for soil evaporation and crop transpiration at any time with the Soil module which enables users to track water flow between different layers in a soil profile as well as the time-varying water content in each layer.
Improve hydropower system performance
Perform advanced hydropower simulations to analyse existing systems or evaluate the feasibility of new developments with the Hydropower module which enables the calculation of conveyance, head losses, tail water level and backwater effects from cascading reservoirs.
Simulate the performance of multi-purpose reservoir systems
With the Reservoir module, users can simulate the performance of specified operating policies for individual reservoirs. Define desired storage volumes, water levels and releases at any time as a function of current water level, the time of the year, demand for water and losses and gains. In addition, reservoir releases in all types of reservoirs (Lakes, Rule Curve and Pool Allocation) can be controlled for flood mitigation by one or more outlets for each connected node.
Simulate reservoir sedimentation
While not considered a sediment transport model, users can still route sediment through a river network and calculate the potential deposits of sediment in the reservoirs using a specialised Reservoir Sedimentation module.
Expand your horizons
Extend the capabilities of MIKE HYDRO Basin even further by developing your own tools with MIKE SDK. Use the APIs to embed the engine into your own code or decision support system.
Prioritise water allocation
The Global Ranking feature provides users with the ability to prioritise water allocation to water users, hydropower plants and reservoirs independently of their geographical location in the river basin.
Simulate rainfall runoff
With the Rainfall-Runoff module, you can accurately calculate total runoff surface flow in addition to its percolation to groundwater.
Autocal provides users with easy to use auto-calibration tools to save time when configuring your Rainfall-Runoff model.
Represent surface-groundwater interaction at the basin scale
Represent the important interaction of groundwater and surface water in the Basin by accounting for groundwater recharge, groundwater discharge, seepage (from irrigation fields, rivers, reservoirs and canals) and impacts of groundwater pumping on the groundwater levels and river flows.
Perform water quality simulations
Water quality simulations can be run using standard, predefined MIKE ECO Lab templates or adjusted to user-defined templates for custom water quality models.
Determine catchment pollutant concentrations
Using the Load Calculator, you can determine the amount of pollutants absorbed in the flow paths through catchments and groundwater towards a river network. Specify different pollutant sources related to farming, agriculture, or industrial activities including animal or human waste, sewage sources or fertiliser. Users can also model distance specific decay or the retention of pollutants.
Customise the Map View to suit your preferences and requirements
The Map View is the focal point of each MIKE HYDRO Basin model session. It can be customised to suit individual preferences and requirements and offers a variety of configuration options. For example, you can visualise background maps (e.g. Google Maps), background layers (shape files, raster and images) as well as Digital Elevation Models.
Analyse results with ease
The detailed outputs from MIKE HYDRO Basin offer an easy-to-understand overview of scenario results, such as water usage, water allocation deficit, generated power, reservoir releases, water losses and mass balance.
In situations where you need to check model results against measurements made downstream, users can create calibration plots at any point in a river network.
