Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Pricing should be improved.""The pricing of this product is meant for medium to large-scale enterprises.""It is my understanding that the cost is very low. It's not very expensive.""Cognos is super expensive compared to Tableau ($70/month) and Power BI ($20/month) — I think Cognos is roughly $200 a month.""It is quite pricy. I think Microsoft BI is cheaper. Tableau might also be cheaper, but it also depends on the usage. If you have very many users, Cognos can be a problem. It could be cheaper than Tableau but not for so many users. If you have a few thousand users, Tableau, which is generally quite expensive, can be cheaper than Cognos.""It's more expensive than similar solutions like Tableau and Power BI."
