Collibra is cutting ties with them is what we have been led to believe, and we have started developing on Spring Boot, which is open source.""I think it is on a yearly basis, but I'm not involved with the pricing session, so I have no idea. There are several licenses for different models. You get one license per product, but a lot of features are controlled separately through different licenses. So, as and when you want to use a feature, you have to procure the license for that feature.""I think they have a trust issue. I did not like the way they recently went through the process.

I didn't like that much.""I would say it's probably in line with what other vendors charge for licensing."
