Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Pricing can be steep, but you get what you pay for.""The cost is basically $100 a job, give or take.""This is an area where it is a little difficult to work with BMC. They want to do licenses by job, which is what we have. For example, the simplest is to license by job, but they can also license by nodes. While the licensing is simple to use, it might not be the correct licensing model for the customer. It is okay because we want to license by job, which is something measurable. At the end of the day, licensing by job is the most important.""The cost of the hardware is high. Because you need to license each job, it is costly.""You're going to spend a lot of money upfront, but the benefits you're going to get out of it are going to quickly pay for it.""Initially, our licensing model was based on the number of jobs per day. That caused some issues because we were restricted to a number. So at our renewal time we said, 'We want to convert from number of jobs to number of endpoints.' That cost us extra money but it gave us additional capabilities, without worrying about the number of jobs.""BMC's price is based on the number of jobs.""You must accept that BMC licensing can be very confusing. No one can easily understand how they calculate things, whether it is user-based, job-based, or server-based. The calculation is quite tough. How BMC calculates licensing is not easily available anywhere."
