Pricing and Cost Advice
"I use the open-source free version.""The open-source version of the product is free to use.""The cost of this solution is better than some competing products.""Licensing costs are anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000 USD per year.""We use the open-source version, which can be used at no cost.""I think Camunda BPM can improve their licensing costs. It isn't easy to find clients with Camunda BPM licenses mainly because it's quite expensive.""When compared with the proprietary products, the pricing costs are much less, even though it is an enterprise edition.""There is an open-source version available, that in its core features (workflow and decision engine, modeler) is exactly the same as in the enterprise version."

More Camunda Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The solution offers a monthly subscription model. That's what we use. I recall it being about $90 a month. They do have different tiers.""It's an enterprise tool and can be used by enterprise only. So it's a very expensive tool.""The licensing will be on a monthly basis. We are estimating that cost to be around $2000 to maybe $3,000 per month. We don't foresee any costs above that.""The pricing can be a little confusing to customers.""The price of this solution is a little high here in Mongolia.""The license is a bit expensive and the pricing model is sometimes confusing for new users or business users. It is difficult for them to know what volume of usage they will have to be able to purchase the best-suited license at the beginning."
