Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"They have the price on their site for the enterprise version, and we do receive a small discount.""It is cheap.""The license I use is on-premise. We haven't gone to the cloud where we have to pay monthly or something like that. Sparx is cheaper than most similar tools.""It is cheaper than other solutions. Its cost is around $686 per year. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""The licence has a costly upfront fee which gets you access. You have to pay an annual maintenance fee, which is less.""I think our license costs roughly $1,000 a year, but I could be wrong.""It is very economical and low cost. You have to pay for a one-time license, and it is active forever.""There is a license for this solution. When comparing this solution to others it is priced well."

Overview

Business processes rely heavily on IT. You’d think there are measures in place to coordinate these processes, but actually the opposite is true: in practice, many processes are not optimally supported by IT and there’s little collaboration. According to research firm Gartner, eighty percent of malfunctions in applications are the result of errors caused by change. Changes to IT cause misunderstanding in the workplace. If one work process changes, it has a knock-on effect on IT and your applications. Processes, applications, data and infrastructure are inextricably linked. Moreover, a lack of coherence causes a proliferation of data and applications.
